Former President Donald Trump hit TRUTH Social to unload on Jan. 6 withness Cassidy Hutchinson, who Trump calls a “phony” and a “leaker.”
“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. Why did she want to go with us if she felt we were so terrible? I understand that she was very upset and angry that I didn’t want her to go, or be a member of the team. She is bad news!”
Hutchinson served as a senior aide to Trump’s chief of staff Mark Meadows.

Hutchinson testified that Trump was unhappy with the size of the crowd for the Jan. 6 “Stop the Steal” rally. She also claimed that Trump was upset that his supporters were being screened for weapons.
Trump responded on Truth Social: “Never complained about the crowd, it was massive. I didn’t want or request that we make room for people with guns to watch my speech. Who would ever want that? Not me! Besides, there were no guns found or brought into the Capitol Building…So where were all of these guns? But sadly, a gun was used on Ashli Babbitt, with no price to pay against the person who used it!”
Babbitt was shot and killed by Capitol Police Lt. Michael Byrd on Jan. 6.
Hutchinson told the House select committee that the former president physically attempted to force his limousine toward the Capitol during the riot.
“Her Fake story that I tried to grab the steering wheel of the White House Limousine in order to steer it to the Capitol Building is ‘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?” he replied to her claims.
Trump said that Hutchinson “changed lawyers a couple of days ago, and with it, her story totally changed.”
