Cassidy Hutchinson, as you may recall, is a former aide for former Chief of Staff Mark Meadows.
Hutchinson was the beginning of the onslaught of damaging but uncorroborated testimony given during the January 6 Select Committee hearings.
Another piece of her testimony was just challenged, and Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) is firing back.
When House Minority Leader McCarthy (R-CA) was asked about Hutchinson’s testimony as it pertained to him, he stated, “If I talked to her, I don’t remember it.
“If it was coming up here, I don’t think I wanted a lot of people coming up to the Capitol. But I don’t remember the conversation.”
Kinzinger fired back, “I mean, look, I don’t trust a thing Kevin McCarthy says, I’ll be honest with you.”
He continued, “Sometime about a year or two ago, he made the decision that his only goal was to become Speaker of the House.
“And he’ll do whatever he has to do, and he thinks that siding with the insurrectionists is the way to get there.”
Kinzinger then added something that made me laugh, stating, “The idea she would just come up with that story and make it up is ludicrous.”
I can immediately point to Hutchinson claiming that she wrote the note that was hung on the door, which we know for a fact was not done by her.
Let’s also not forget that the Secret Service agents cited by Hutchinson have also pushed back against her testimony, leaving very little that has not been challenged.
Here is my big question about all of this… How did a low-ranking 25-year-old aide get so much access to so many people of this magnitude?
It all just seems a bit of a reach to me. I mean, hey, she could be the only one telling the truth, but I obviously have my doubts.
