Seemingly desperate for attention and perhaps to prove their authenticity, the partisan January 6 commission pulled a quick one this week with a surprise Tuesday session. They brought out their so-called “star witness” to present what they tout to be a bombshell testimony, one in which they undoubtedly hope will seal the destiny of the former President of the United States.
However, it backfired when the content of the witness’ charges were called into doubt, not by a defense, as there is not one present at this sham trial, but by persons and professionals present during the events stated in the evidence. Witness Cassidy Hutchinson was not there firsthand for several of the occurrences she detailed from the stand, rather she supplied second-hand information (ie. gossip) she was told… far from a “smoking gun” the committee wants the public to perceive it to be.
The former president of the United States Donald Trump derided former staffer to White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows Cassidy Hutchinson’s testimony on Tuesday, in which he alleged that Trump attempted to grab control of his presidential SUV and strangled a Secret Service employee.
In typical Trump manner, he summed up the charges of the woman as “absolutely crazy,” as reported by Newsmax.
However, that was not all he supplied in response to rightly defend himself against the character assassination she dished out on the stand. After all, her accusations were mostly predicated on gossip, not truth, as she expertly utilized the phrase “something to the effect of” in connection with every damaging accusation she threw against the former president. This was perhaps more of a precaution to prevent perjuring herself rather than a fortuitous statement she spoke in excess.

“This lady, yesterday — is there something wrong with her?” Trump said on Wednesday following the “bombshell” surprise testimony.
“She said I jumped from a car, I started strangling a Secret Service agent who I know very well? I grabbed the steering wheel of a car? Said that I wanted guns at my rally? I didn’t want guns. I have to speak, too. I don’t want guns for anybody,” he said.
In response to this catastrophic claim, there have been several reports in the last couple of days that Secret Service agents are willing to testify that Ms. Hutchinson’s allegations are not true. According to an attorney representing Hutchinson, the allegation about the SUV was based on second-hand information that their client was told, rather than her own personal account of the event.
