The star witness in the highly partisan January 6th committee hearings, Cassidy Hutchinson, derided the committee’s investigation as ‘BS’ in private text messages.
The texts, unearthed by the Daily Caller, are the latest evidence to call Hutchinson’s credibility into doubt.
Hutchinson looked for a way out of testimony
Hutchinson texted a conservative activist connected with the American Conservative Union and asked the person to put her in touch with the First Amendment Fund, a group that pays legal fees for Trump officials subpoenaed by the committee.
“Do you happen to know a First Amendment fund POC I could reach out to? I was subpoenaed in early Nov., but the committee waited to serve me until last week (after Ben’s deposition),” she wrote.
Hutchinson said she was “trying to figure out what my options are to deal with this BS.”
“I had to accept service because the U.S. Marshalls came to my apartment last Wednesday, but I haven’t made contact with the Committee. I’m just on a tight timeline and just trying to figure out what my options are to deal with this BS,” Hutchinson added.
The committee devoted an entire televised hearing to Hutchinson’s dramatic testimony, which depicted a berserk Trump lunging for the steering wheel of his car to drive to the Capitol.
Secret Service sources have said that agent Bobby Engel will testify under oath that Hutchinson’s story isn’t true. She also claimed that she was the author of a note with a message directing the Capitol protesters to go home, but former White House lawyer Eric Herschmann said the handwriting was his.
In a post on his Truth Social platform, President Trump blasted the “LameStream” media for failing to report Hutchinson’s damning texts about the “unselect committee.”
“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.
Trump has also derided Hutchinson as a cynical “social climber” who is just preaching to the choir.
Hutchinson’s texts should put to rest any doubt that the January 6th show trial is a partisan exercise. Democrats don’t care about the facts. They have put together a sensational, misleading narrative to make Trump — a former president who 73 million people voted for — into a political prisoner. Shameless.
