It’s not just the bogus limo story. There’s another major discrepancy with Cassidy Hutchinson’s testimony from yesterday’s January 6 Committee hearing, this one confirmed by another star witness for the committee, White House lawyer Eric Herschmann:
BREAKING: Former White House lawyer Eric Herschmann says that it is not true that Cassidy Hutchinson wrote the handwritten note that she testified on Tuesday that she wrote. He says it's not true because he was the one who wrote the note. https://t.co/jBBtnOwzTn

From ABC News:
“The handwritten note that Cassidy Hutchinson testified was written by her was in fact written by Eric Herschmann on January 6, 2021,” a spokesperson for Herschmann told ABC News Tuesday evening.
“All sources with direct knowledge and law enforcement have and will confirm that it was written by Mr. Herschmann,” the spokesperson said.
At Tuesday’s hearing, Hutchinson, testifying about the note, said, “That’s a note that I wrote at the direction of the chief of staff on Jan. 6, likely around 3 o’clock.”
“And it’s written on the chief of staff note card, but that’s your handwriting, Ms. Hutchinson?” Rep. Cheney asked.
Over to you, Liz Cheney:
Eric testified under oath. Liz Cheney questioned him about that note. She knew Cassidy was lying.

The Committee is in damage-control mode over the limo story and we can’t wait to see how they spin this new one
A Secret Service source told me earlier: “FYI, I’m calling bullshit on the Secret Service story. You think none of us would have never heard of this as an internal rumor? No fucking way.” https://t.co/NqEoljvBeD

The Secret Service ultimately has to follow all of the President's orders… So aside from the fact that it was physically/logistically impossible for Trump to try to wrestle the limo steering wheel away… he would've never needed to.
The January 6 committee clowned itself.
