This week, the world was stunned when a former White House aide made some surprising allegations against former President Donald Trump.
During her testimony before a January 6 House select committee, Cassidy Hutchinson made several claims about #45’s behavior on the controversial day. And these claims raised a lot of eyebrows in Washington.
But now, Trump himself has directly responded to these accusations — and he’s obviously annoyed.
Hutchinson made waves by claiming that on the day of the Jan. 6 rally, Trump tried to get the Secret Service to take him to the U.S. Capitol. And when they refused, Trump allegedly tried to grab the steering wheel from one of the agents.
This is a side of the story nobody had heard, which is a big reason why so many demanded immediate answers.
One of the first to provide those answers was Trump, who quickly took to social media to address the shocking allegations. This included Trump being “furious” and “lunging” at one of the agents.
But as the former POTUS said in reply:
I hardly know who this person, Cassidy Hutchinson, is, other than I heard very negative things about her (a total phony and ‘leaker’), and when she requested to go with certain others of the team to Florida after my having served a full term in office, I personally turned her request down.
Trump didn’t stop there, though.
He added that he would never “want or request that we make room for people with guns to watch my speech. Who would ever want that? Not me!” And then the former President addressed another important point:
He said “there were no guns found or brought into the Capitol Building,” and wonders why none were ever found.
Finally, Trump directly responded to the allegation that he tried to grab the steering wheel: he called these claims “sick and fraudulent, very much like the Unselect Committee itself.”
Wouldn’t even have been possible to do such a ridiculous thing.
Her story of me throwing food is also false…and why would SHE have to clean it up, I hardly knew who she was?
It’s possible that more witnesses will testify about this supposed event in the days to come. There are rumors that one Secret Service agent will testify that in fact, Trump never did anything Hutchinson claimed.
Many have accused Democrats of simply staging a political theater to distract attention from the failures of the Biden administration.
And a recent poll said the ploy isn’t really working, either. But it’s possible that more people will be paying attention after these latest testimonies.
- Former President Donald Trump has responded to allegations made by a former White House staffer regarding January 6.
- Trump says the claims are “sick and fraudulent,” and claims he barely knew the witness at all.
- There are reports that a Secret Service agent might back up Trump’s defense.
