After a former White House aide claimed on Tuesday that he had heard that Donald Trump had stabbed a driver inside the president’s car and demanded that he be taken to the Capitol, the U.S. Secret Service said it would cooperate with the House committee investigating the attack. On January 6, 2021 at the U.S. Capitol.
Agents are said to be preparing to testify before Congress and explicitly refute the aide’s claim that an angry Trump wanted to enter the capital during a security breach.
On Tuesday evening, White House correspondent Peter Alexander, head of NBC News, tweeted that the two Secret Service employees were scheduled to testify that Trump did not attack them in any way or hit the wheel of the president’s car known as “The Beast.” To take him to the Capitol.
According to a source close to the Secret Service, both Chief Agent Bobby Engel and the president’s SUV driver were not insulted by anyone willing to take the oath, and Mr. Trump never reached for the wheels. This is according to Alexander of NBC.
Their readiness to refute the allegations under oath calls into question Cassidy Hutchinson’s testimony, which was given to Trump’s chief of staff, Mark Meadows, as top staff.
On his social media channel Truth Social, Trump has already questioned that testimony.
Hutchinson testified that Engel repeatedly reminded Mr. Trump on his way back to the White House after a close protest on Jan. 6 for electoral integrity that going to the Capitol was unsafe. Tony Ornato, then White House Deputy Chief of Staff, allegedly leaked the information to Hutchinson.
He asserted that his confession had been obtained through torture and that his confession had been obtained through torture. Trump is alleged to have reached Engel’s neck with his other hand when Engel apparently held his hand.
The comments are part of a larger testimony where he indicated that Meadows and other White House staff members were involved in planning the January 6 capital attack and were aware of the possibility of chaos. Hundreds of protesters tried to dissuade Congress from certifying Joe Biden’s victory in the 2020 election, a victory Trump has often linked to widespread vote fraud, when the Capitol was attacked.
Trump, for his part, has categorically rejected his testimony and identified the entire election committee investigation as a political and partisan attempt to harm him and jeopardize the possibility of restoring the White House in 2024.
He made the following statement in a post on his social media site, Truth Social: “I rarely know who this person, Cassidy Hutchinson, is. After he requested to go to Florida with some other members of the team, I personally turned down his request.
“If he thought we were so scary, why did he want to travel with us? I realized how unhappy and angry she was that I didn’t want her to join the team. She’s hostile!
On Truth Social, he also used the occasion to denounce the House’s Jan. 6 investigation as a farce, saying that “his fake story” that he tried to take the White House limousine to the Capitol building was “sick” and deceptive, much like the unelected committee itself. Even such a ridiculous thing would not have been possible.
