Megyn Kelley was the first journalist who took on Donald Trump during a 2016 presidential election debate.
But now, she is on his side.
On Thursday’s “The Megyn Kelly Show”, the ex-Fox News and NBC News correspondent scoffed at Cassidy Hutchinson’s dramatic testimony before the Jan. 6 special commission.
” A first-year student in law could have driven a truck through those testimonials,” stated Ms. Kelly who holds a law school degree.

According to the Washington Examiner, four members of the all-Democrat-picked panel not only have been first-year law students but also have law degrees, some with the highest honors. These are Reps. Jamie Raskin, Adam Schiff, and Zoe Lofgren from California and Liz Cheney, Wyoming. All except Ms. Cheney, are Democrats.
“Unfortunately none of them were present on Tuesday, never mind a lawyer to present Donald Trump’s defence or press the witness about certain issues with her testimony,” Kelly stated, despising the absence of due process at the hearing which conservative commentators and Republicans have called a “show trial”.
Ms. Kelly pointed out that Ms. Hutchinson presented hearsay evidence a lot, which was based on something she had “overheard”, and that it often referred to .”
“Her memories seemed to be quite shaky,” Kelly said. “Something to do with”? Do you remember the exact words? Tell us what it was .”
Another news outlet reported that Ms. Hutchinson claimed that Donald Trump attempted to choke the driver of his Secret Service vehicle and take the steering wheel. This claim was denied by Secret Service. It is also unlikely given the car’s design.
In her testimony, Ms. Hutchinson claimed that Donald Trump requested that the Secret Service do not check weapons for him at the “Stop the Steal” rally, despite the fact that many were armed.
But Kelly pointed out that Jan.6 panelists didn’t ask the follow-up questions.
” “What really happened?” she inquired. She asked, “Did Secret Service stop screening people?” They were allowed in. No one suggested that .”
Ms. Hutchinson served as an aide for Mark Meadows, then chief of staff at the White House on January. 6.
