The January 6 hearings just keep grabbing headlines across the nation. Democrats are hoping to prove former President Donald Trump had a hand in the J6 uprisings in Washington D.C.
However, one of their key witnesses has run into several roadblocks recently. Cassidy Hutchinson made some bold claims about Trump’s actions on that day, but her reliability is now in question.
It doesn’t help that she apparently asked Trump senior officials for assistance after getting subpoenaed by the committee.
This is one of several new pieces of information that the prosecution doesn’t want to see. In this case, it appears that Hutchinson sent an email to one former Trump official saying she needed some legal help.
This email, revealed by The Daily Caller, explains that she was unemployed at the time and living with her aunt and uncle.
Because money was tight, she wanted the Trump official to put her in contact with fundraising organizations or lawyers who might be able to lend a hand. She added that she was “primarily seeking financial assistance.”
Here’s part of the letter:
I was subpoenaed by the 1/6 Committee on November 9, 2020 [sic 2021], but was not formally served until Wednesday, January 26, 2021 [sic 2022].
I’ve had difficulty securing a legal team, and was hoping you may be able to put me in contact with any fundraising organizations and/or attorneys that are involved in this process.
Afterward, numerous senior Trump officials said that former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows refused to answer Hutchinson’s calls after she’d been summoned by the committee.
Apparently, he didn’t want to seem as if he was influencing her testimony in any way.
Then, a person with “first-hand knowledge” of the matter clarified that Hutchinson was begging “people in the Trump world” for financial aid, claiming her family couldn’t even afford food at the time.
The interesting part about this is that a few of those Trump officials were sympathetic and offered to help.
Trump’s PAC agreed to help her out financially and even gave her a few names of attorneys that she could speak to. Additionally, Hutchinson allegedly “made derogatory comments about the Jan. 6 committee.”
And as the world knows now, Hutchinson then went in front of the committee and testified that Trump had tried to wrench the steering wheel away from a Secret Service agent on Jan. 6.
That was just one of several eye-opening claims she made — and all this after getting assistance from Trump’s people.
This is likely to cast another shadow on Hutchinson’s testimony and many people will start wondering about her true motives. Trump himself has denied all of Hutchinsons claims and allegations.
The former President also released a 12-page document defending his actions on Jan. 6.
But right now, the spotlight is back on Cassidy Hutchinson, and whether or not she really told “the whole truth” on the stand.
- J6 Committee witness Cassidy Hutchinson reportedly begged senior Trump officials for help before testifying.
- She claimed to need financial and legal assistance, and Trump’s PAC gave her that help.
- They also say Hutchinson “made derogatory comments about the committee,” which seems to clash with her testimony on the stand.
