No matter how ludicrous her testimony was or how soon her falsehoods were proven, Cassidy Hutchinson remains the primary witness for the January 6 Committee. Hutchinson offered under oath evidence that was inflammatory and made President Donald J. Trump’s opponents appear terrible. It consisted entirely of fiction, yet the crowd adored it.
Hutchinson famously claimed that Trump took the steering wheel from his driver in an attempt to reroute the car to a different place. It was soon and effortlessly revealed to be a deception.
A recent media story indicates that after being summoned by the committee in February, Hutchinson requested financial aid and legal counsel from former senior Trump officials. According to an email acquired exclusively by the Daily Caller, this information was received.
According to The Daily Caller, in an email addressed to a former top Trump official on February 4, Hutchinson expressed difficulty in assembling a legal team and requested for assistance in contacting fundraising groups or attorneys who could assist her.
Hutchinson claimed that she was now unemployed and that her aunt and uncle had sought to refinance their home in order to assist her. In addition, she stated that she was “primarily seeking financial assistance” and “in a bind financially.”
“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,” Hutchinson said in an email to the former top Trump administration official.
“My aunt and uncle applied to refinance their house to loosen up some money since I don’t have much immediate family, but they weren’t approved,” Hutchinson said in a separate email, according to the outlet.
Multiple senior Trump officials and a person with direct knowledge told the Daily Caller that former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows did not answer Hutchinson’s calls following her subpoena.
A representative for Meadows corroborated these charges to the Daily Caller, stating that Meadows did not return these calls to prevent the appearance of illegally influencing testimony.
The Daily Caller has provided anonymity to committee subpoenaed individuals.
“Cassidy Hutchinson reached out to various people in Trump world asking for both financial assistance and help finding a lawyer. She told us she was in significant financial distress, had no family that could help, and couldn’t even afford food. She also told us Mark Meadows wouldn’t return her calls. To our knowledge, she spoke with multiple lawyers and chose Stefan Passantino to represent her,” a source told The Daily Caller.
A person with direct knowledge reportedly stated that Trump aides were sympathetic due to her age and lack of job, and that Trump’s PAC promised to assist her financially and suggested attorneys she may interview at her request. The individual also said that Hutchinson made disparaging remarks about the January 6 committee to various Trump associates.

A former senior Trump official also mentioned Meadows not returning Hutchinson’s calls and said she reached out to Trump’s circle and asked for help.
Meadows is definitely a leading attraction for the US House members who are constructing their perfect fantasy about what happened that day in what feels like a 1980s soap opera.
“An MSNBC panel discusses Trump chief of staff Mark Meadows’ hard-to-define role in the January 6th and the new piece of testimony from Cassidy Hutchinson in the seventh hearing that shows when Meadows realized Donald Trump had lost the election and turned to find other means to preserve Trump’s power.” MSNBC reported, showing they already have the narrative written, no matter what the truth is or what the testimony reveals.
