Fani Willis told to give House committee record of communication with Cassidy Hutchinson

 June 7, 2024

Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis made headlines this week after a Georgia appeals court agreed to hear arguments over whether she should be removed from former President Donald Trump's racketeering case.

However, Willis was also in the spotlight when a Georgia congressman demanded details about an interview her office allegedly conducted with a January 6 Committee witness.

Questions about contact with Cassidy Hutchinson

According to the Daily Caller, House Administration Subcommittee on Oversight Chairman Barry Loudermilk issued that demand in the form of a letter.

"Based on information recovered by this Subcommittee, we have reason to believe that your office interviewed Ms. Cassidy Hutchinson, who also provided testimony to the Select Committee to Investigate the January 6th Attack on the United States Capitol ('Select Committee')," Loudermilk wrote.

Hutchinson is a former Trump White House aide who has faced questions regarding the veracity of statements she made while under oath.

Loudermilk suggests Willis contacted Hutchinson's mother

"The testimony provided by Ms. Hutchinson in the course of your investigation is relevant to our evaluation of her testimony and the direct implications her testimony has on the security of the United States Capitol," Loudermilk continued.

"This Subcommittee obtained evidence that your staff in the Fulton County District Attorney's Office made numerous attempts to reach out to Cassidy Hutchinson to seek her testimony," he stressed.

"Specifically, individuals from your office reached out to Ms. Hutchinson's mother in an attempt to reach Ms. Hutchinson," the congressman pointed out.

Loudermilk explained that "the reliability of Ms. Hutchinson's testimony" is being reviewed as it "was heavily relied on" by the January 6 committee.

Secret Service witnesses disputed Cassidy's testimony

He went on to ask, "Did anyone affiliated with the Fulton County District Attorney's communicate with Ms. Hutchinson at any time between January 1, 2021, and today, June 5, 2024?"

"If the answer to this question is yes, please provide the names of the individuals who communicated with Ms. Hutchinson and the dates of these communications," Loudermilk stated.

"Additionally, please provide my staff copies of these communications to aid in our investigation," the lawmaker wrote as he drew to a close.

The Daily Caller recalled how Hutchinson at one point claimed that former President Donald Trump attempted to physically take control of a vehicle on January 6, a contention which was disputed by Secret Service witnesses.
