Hutchinson, who served as a top aide to Trump White House chief of staff Mark Meadows testified on Tuesday to the Select House Committee investigating the Jan. 6th US Capitol Riot, stating that Trump lunged at a Secret Service agent’s clavicle in rage in the presidential limousine when told he couldn’t go to the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021.
In her own words, “Trump “said something to the effect of, ‘I’m the f-ing president, take me up to the Capitol now,'” Hutchinson testified. “To which Bobby responded, ‘Sir, we have to go back to the West Wing.’ The president reached up towards the front of the vehicle to grab at the steering wheel. Mr. Engel grabbed his arm and said, ‘Sir, you need to take your hand off the steering wheel, we’re going back to the West Wing. We’re not going to the Capitol.'” Then she went further stating ” Mr. Trump then used his free hand to lunge towards Bobby Engel, and when Mr. Ornato had recounted this story to me, he had motioned toward his Clavicle”
Rep. Liz Cheney, then asked Hutchinson if Engel disagreed with any part of the story Ornato relayed. Hutchinson said he did not.
Trump responded with a series of post on Truth Social later on that Tuesday:
“Her Fake story that I tried to grab the steering wheel of the White House Limousine in order to steer it to the Capitol Building is ‘sick’ and fraudulent, very much like the Unselect Committee itself — Wouldn’t even have been possible to do such a ridiculous thing,” Trump posted.
