Cassidy Hutchinson, a former aide to Trump Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, delivered explosive testimony before the January 6th Committee regarding her encounters with former President Donald Trump. According to Hutchinson’s testimony, Trump was so determined to attend the January 6th riot that he assaulted a member of the Secret Service and attempted to commandeer a vehicle in order to be present during the armed insurrection. This suggests a degree of premeditation on behalf of the former president, and thus far, there has been no dispute that Donald Trump was absolutely determined to get to the Capitol on January 6th. Hutchinson also testified that Trump would regularly become so irate that he would shatter tableware and throw his food against the walls of the White House, staining them with ketchup. Although Trump has attempted to discredit this witness, the fact remains that Hutchinson testified under oath and faces significant legal pressure to tell the truth.
