Every one of the January 6 committee hearings has been harmful to Donald Trump. The most devastating of all, though, was likely the one that featured Cassidy Hutchinson. The former aide to Mark Meadows discussed Trump’s frequent tantrums and disregard for the safety of the American people.
Hutchinson also told a story of Trump attacking a Secret Service agent and attempting to grab the steering wheel of an armored SUV when he was told he wouldn’t be taken to the Capitol. Two of Trump’s loyal Secret Service agents have denied the story but haven’t done so under oath. According to a new CNN report, the story was confirmed to the J6 Committee by a Washington DC police officer.
Jaime Gangel and Annie Grayer report:
“A Washington, DC, police officer has corroborated to the House select committee investigating January 6, 2021, details regarding a heated exchange former President Donald Trump had with his Secret Service detail when he was told he could not go to the US Capitol after his rally, a source familiar with the matter tells CNN.
The officer with the Metropolitan Police Department was in the motorcade with the Secret Service for Trump on January 6 and recounted what was seen to committee investigators, according to the source.
The report goes on to say that the committee “is also engaging with the driver who was in the presidential SUV regarding possible testimony.”
