democrats gleefully trotted out a 25 year old adolescent yesterday to offer a crushing blow any thought of Donald Trump’s returning to the oval office. She was all too willing to talk about her former boss- Donald Trump. The problem with her testimony was a big one- it was virtually all hearsay. There are numerous problems with her accounts.
‘I’m the effing president, take me to the Capitol now,’ she said he ordered.
When Secret Service refused, Hutchinson said agents told her that he lunged at the steering wheel of his car – known as The Beast.
‘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,’ Hutchinson was told Secret Service agent Robert Engel said.
‘Mr. Trump then used his free hand to lunge towards Bobby Engel,’ Hutchinson recalled.
Former Deputy Chief of Staff Tony Ornato ‘motioned toward his clavicle,’ she added, as a sign the president went for his security detail’s throat.
But Engel and Ornato deny the account and are willing to testify to that under oath. Jamie Raskin, the rabid Trump hater, suggests that the Secret Service agents are liars.
She claimed to write a note that was written by someone else.
This is really enough to impeach her as a witness. “I was told” is known as hearsay and is not admissible in court. I am often not the first on a story because I like to wait for, as Paul Harvey used to say, the rest of the story. But that’s not true of the media- all of them. You might think that after being sold a pile of fecal matter known as Russian collusion they might be a bit more hesitant to jump on some inflammatory disclosure from a biased partisan hack filled echo chamber without verifying it first, especially as the Jan 6 committee has already been caught lying.
But you would be wrong.
Citing her hearsay testimony the media went bonkers.
Trump proven unfit for power again- Washington Examiner
Mediaite was awash in stories
You get the idea. They all blame Trump, but Congress had plenty of warnings about Jan 6.
Their presentation, using the hearsay testimony of 25-year-old former presidential aide Cassidy Hutchison, for sure excited the news media.
But it could not obscure one stubborn fact that glaringly was ignored at the televised hearing: long before Hutchison overheard concerns inside the White House on Jan. 2 and Jan. 6, 2021, about guns and violence, the Capitol Police that reported to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi repeatedly received intelligence warnings about such possibilities and failed to increase security adequately or accept the Trump Pentagon’s offer for 10,000 or more National Guard troops.
Documents obtained Tuesday by Just the News from Capitol Police sources show the department received a pointed intelligence report on New Year’s Eve 2020 – a full week before the riot – that extremists planning to attend a rally earlier that day were discussing using guns, possibly in sniper attacks, and planning to violently storm the Capitol and hang Democratic members of Congress.
Yet neither Pelosi nor Congress took one useful action. This is what’s called “context.”
I think democrats knew all of this. They had already interviewed Ornato. I think they knew Cassidy Smollett was spreading hearsay and lies. I think they played on her immaturity and ego promising her hero status, a book deal and a movie. I think they were going to slap as much dung on the wall as they could and hoped most of it stuck before the truth came out. They played not only Cassidy Smollett Hutchinson, they played all of the media. The media ignored or forgot that this democrat circle jerk was entirely one sided. An echo chamber. democrats scored and visited damage. That damage done by a willing, gullible and stupid media will not be so easily erased. If he weren’t already dead, Harry Reid would have said “It worked, didn’t it?”
Such is the danger and advantage in an Echo Chamber.
