WATCH: Adam Kinzinger Talks About Pat Cipollone’s Testimony & Dispels One Big Rumor

Cassidy Hutchinson’s testimony to the January 6th Committee left Trumpworld in an uproar. The former president lashed out at her, and his fans attempted to discredit her by sharing rumors that seemed to contradict her testimony. However, when someone in a position to verify the facts agreed to testify, Donald Trump lashed out again, seeming to find no solace in this potential vindication. Now, it’s clear that former White House Counsel Pat Cipollone didn’t contradict Hutchinson’s testimony at all — and we’ll soon know more of what else he had to share.

Cipollone had spoken to the Committee informally on at least one previous occasion, but a significant amount of Hutchinson’s public testimony involved him. Two important conversations in this testimony were one in which Hutchinson said that Cipollone urged her to keep Trump from going with the mob to the Capitol On January 6th, and one she says she overheard, in which Cipollone and Mark Meadows discussed Trump saying that his Vice President, Mike Pence, ‘deserved’ the threats from the mob.

Trump fans like right-wing political activist Jack Posobiec have been spreading rumors that Hutchinson’s testimony can’t be true — for instance, Posobiec says that unnamed “sources” tell him Cipollone wasn’t in the White House on January 6th, and so couldn’t have had the described conversations.

Of course, in that case, Trump allies should have been happy for Cipollone to testify, since he could clearly affirm if the conversations Hutchinson describes didn’t happen — yet Trump had another tantrum on his social media when he learned Cipollone was testifying.

So, Cipollone testified on Friday. What stories did he confirm or deny?

Representative Adam Kinzinger says that the former White House counsel did not contradict any testimony given by other witnesses — and he added additional information that will be revealed in further presentations.

Of course, the Committee has done a rather excellent job avoiding major leaks so far, and Kinzinger won’t let anything slip about exactly what the witness shared.

Still, it’s probable, based on their inquiries so far, that Cipollone was asked, among other things, about which Trump allies proposed illegal methods to overturn the election and how Trump received the information that some of these plots were illegal; what exactly was said about the former president traveling to the Capitol Building; and what Trump and allies said about the mob violence that afternoon.
