Former President Donald Trump continues to rail against Jan. 6 Committee witness and former White House aide Cassidy Hutchinson for her testimony; Trump says “Lyin’ Cassidy Hutchinson” once called the committee “BS.”
“Lyin’ Cassidy Hutchinson, who the Fake News Media refuses to properly reveal, recently called the January 6 Unselect Committee ‘B.S.’ Gee, that wasn’t reported by LameStream!” Trump posted Monday on his Truth Social page.
From The New York Post…
The 45th president was referencing a Sunday Daily Caller report which alleged that on Feb. 1, Hutchinson — a former top assistant to Trump chief of staff Mark Meadows — sought assistance from the American Conservative Union’s First Amendment Fund after being subpoenaed by the panel.
“Hey (redacted)! This is Cassidy Hutchinson. Kind of a random question, but do you still work for the Schlapp’s [sic] at the ACU?” the first text reportedly from Hutchinson reads.
The recipient, which the outlet identified only as a “conservative activist,” responded with, “Hi, Yes!”
“Do you happen to know a First Amendment fund POC [point of contact] I could reach out to?” a second Hutchinson text read. “I was subpoenaed in early Nov., but the committee waited to serve me until last week …”
“I had to accept service because the U.S. Marshalls [sic] came to my apartment last Wednesday, but I haven’t made contact with the Committee,” a third one read. “I’m just on a tight timeline and just trying to figure out what my options are to deal with this bs.”
Shortly after Hutchinson’s testimony June 28, ACU Chairman Matt Schlapp wrote on Twitter that she had reached out for assistance — and added he was “pleased” the organization did not assist her.
“Ms. Hutchinson approached @CPAC for help through our First Amendment Fund which has helped J6 political victims defend themselves,” Schlapp wrote. “I am pleased we did not assist her performance today. Relaying WH hallway gossip as fact does not qualify as first person testimony.”
