Either Cassidy Hutchinson is lying or she’s repeating the words of a liar. We know that because men who were there tell us what she said is wrong. The J6 Committee needs to find out the truth. They won’t.
Fox: “Two Secret Service agents are prepared to testify before Congress that then-President Donald Trump did not lunge at a steering wheel or assault them in an attempt to go to the Capitol during the Jan. 6 riot, a source close to the Secret Service tells Fox News.
The explosive new allegations were made on Tuesday by Cassidy Hutchinson, a former top aide to Trump White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows.
White House Counsel Pat Cipollone repeatedly warned staff in the days before the rally that ‘we’re going to get charged with every crime imaginable’ if Trump goes to the Capitol, Hutchinson testified.”
🚨 A source close to the Secret Service tells me both Bobby Engel, the lead agent, and the presidential limousine/SUV driver are prepared to testify under oath that neither man was assaulted and that Mr. Trump never lunged for the steering wheel.

Hutchinson testified, “When Bobby had relayed to him we’re not, we don’t have the assets to do it… the president had very strong, very angry response to that. Tony described him as being irate,” Hutchinson said. “The president said something to the effect of, ‘I’m the f-ing president, take me up to the Capitol now,” Hutchinson testified to what she was told by White House aide Tony Ornato.
“The president reached up towards the front of the vehicle to grab at the steering wheel. Mr. Engel grabbed his arm, said, ‘Sir, you need take your hand off the steering wheel. We’re going back to the West Wing. We’re not going to the Capitol,” Hutchinson continued. “Trump then used his free hand to lunge toward Bobby Engel. When Mr. Ornato had recounted this story to me he motioned towards his clavicles.” The men involved say that is not true. Trump was really mad. But he didn’t get physical.
As such, Engel and the driver, a Secret Service agent, are prepared to go in front of the Jan. 6 committee and swear the president did not lunge at the steering wheel or grab anybody.
She also said Ornato told her, “He doesn’t want to do anything, Pat,” Meadows said, according to Hutchinson, a former Meadows aide.
“Mark, something needs to be done. People are going to die and the blood’s going to be on your f****** hands,” Cipollone replied, according to Hutchinson.
Hutchinson’s lawyer said, “Ms. Hutchinson testified, under oath, and recounted what she was told,” Jody Hunt tweeted. “Those with knowledge of the episode also should testify under oath.”
Liz Cheney got her two cents in. “As we heard yesterday, WH counsel Pat Cippollone [sic] had significant concerns [regarding] Trump’s Jan 6 activities,” Cheney said. But, did he?
“It’s time for Mr. Cippollone to testify on the record,” she continued. “Any concerns he has about the institutional interests of his prior office are outweighed by the need for his testimony.” His whole testimony, including about false allegations against Trump.
