We witnessed a lot coming out of Tuesday’s event to undermine Cassidy Hutchinson’s testimony about the Jan. 6 struggle between President Donald Trump and an agent in a car. The woman was telling what she said she had heard from another person, while acknowledging she didn’t see it. CNN reports that the man she said she heard it speak out against her, and denies that he ever told her. Others are also commenting, claiming that Secret Service sources are saying there were people in the car who can testify it didn’t happen.
Now there’s more. Hutchinson, a former White House Chief Of Staff Mark Meadows claimed that she wrote a note regarding the statement President Donald Trump needed to make in regard to the unfolding riot. It was written by her, she told the Committee.
Hutchinson testified about the note at Tuesday’s hearing. He said that it was a note he wrote under the directive of Chief of Staff Jan. 6th, likely around 3:00 .”
” And it’s on the chief staff note card. But that’s your handwriting Ms. Hutchinson?” Rep. Cheney inquired.
“That is my handwriting,” Hutchinson responded.
Hutchinson was a former top adviser to Meadows. She said Meadows gave her a note card with a pen, and she began dictating possible statements for Trump during the Capitol riot.
Except Eric Herschmann, a former Trump White House lawyer, is now claiming that the note was written by him. He did indeed testify to it previously.
” Cassidy Hutchinson claimed that the handwritten note she signed was hers. However, Eric Herschmann wrote it on January 6 2021,”. A spokesperson for Herschmann said Tuesday night to ABC News.
” All sources that have direct knowledge of the matter and those in law enforcement can and will verify it was written and signed by Mr. Herschmann,” said the spokesperson.
Whoops. They can’t tell a straight story like the one about the car in which the fight allegedly took place. This is the problem with your goal to get Trump, not the truth.
The Committee did their best to save Hutchinson’s undercutting.
A spokesperson for Jan.6 committee stated that Herschmann claimed the claim. However, she acknowledged that Herschmann and Herschmann may have different memories of who wrote it. She also said that “the committee did its research on this issue and found Ms. Hutchinson’s account credible.” While we understand that she and Mr. Herschmann may have differing recollections of who wrote the note, what’s ultimately important is that both White House officials believed that the President should have immediately instructed his supporters to leave the Capitol building.”
No. There is one truth here. Everything is relative. It is either she wrote it, or she didn’t. It is a false claim that she wrote it when she didn’t. This undermines her story, and raises questions about what she has to say. If Herschmann had previously said that he was the one who wrote the note.
If it were possible to undermine their credibility anymore, the Committee did just that.
