At a hearing last week, the Commission on January 6 did not publicly discuss actions to verify or support important claims made by former Trump administration aide Cassidy Hutchinson. Hmm.
Hutchinson, who worked closely with White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, detailed some of the key events through video and direct testimony at the hearing. The most explosive isformer President Donald Trump,angry that the US Secret Service (USSS) will not take him to the Capitol and rush to the agent trying to grab the handle of the presidential vehicle. It was said that it was done. ..
Hutchinson explained what she said after January 6th that it was a version of what former Deputy Prime Minister Tony Ornart told her. She ended the rally in the ellipse and demanded that Congress be taken to the Capitol, which had proved the outcome of the presidential election.
"The President reached out in front of the vehicle to grab the steering wheel. [Secret Service Agent Bobby] Engel grabbed his arm," Sir, you let go. You need. Handle. Return to the West Wing. I won't go to the Capitol, "Hutchinson quoted Ornart. "Then Trump used his freehand to rush towards Bobby Engel. When Mr. Ornart told me this story, he moved towards the collarbone."

The January 6th committee responded to a request for comment from FoxNews Digital on Tuesday. I didn't. Talk to Ornart or Engelsince the hearing.Also, whether you contacted the Secret Service to confirm your allegations, whether there were more subpoenas related to Hutchinson's allegations, or whether you took other steps to confirm her remarks. Did not answer the question.
USSS spokesman Anthony Gugliemihas no information to share when asked if the Commission has taken further steps to verify Hutchinson's allegations. Said.
According to Secret Services, the January 6 Commission did not reach out before the Hutchinson test on tramp lunge at the agent
Ornato told Fox News that Ornato was shocked when Hutchinson filed a complaint about the handle. The source said both Ornart and Engel would be willing to testify to the Commission to refute that part of Hutchinson's story. USSS spokesman Gugliemi also confirmed to Fox News on Wednesday that the Commission did not contact the day before the hearing to verify Hutchinson's allegations.
During the days following Hutchinson's testimony was first disputed, several members of the Commission spoke publicly and stood beside Hutchinson. They also say they are pleased to hear from those who disagree with Hutchinson under her oath. However, nothing details the Commission's further efforts to examine the controversial part of her testimony.
Republican Rep. Adam Kinzinger said on Sunday that anyone who wants to disagree with Hutchinson's testimony in CNN's State of the Union should not do so through the media. Name them their comments.
"Well, I can't tell you yet, but I think Cassidy Hutchinson testified under an oath. Whoever she trusts and wants to be slandered, it's direct. Attendance came and witnessed under an oath without going through an anonymous source, without quoting a quote, and could not be an anonymous source. "

Tony Ornato makes Cassidy Hutchinson easy for Trump to rush into a secret service agent. Didn't explain to: Source
"Well, I'm not going to say what we're doing or what we're not doing from a confirmatory point of view." He told CNN. "But let me say this. What she said is what she heard," he said. Proponents said they were armed and could expect the Commission to release more information in the future, but Hutchinson said of Trump, who allegedly rushed or grabbed a secret service agent. He did not mention whether the Commission is currently taking any steps to confirm that
Apart from this, Kinzinger was from a former Trump White House official, Ornart. Is not supposed to be the true person. "There seems to be a big thread here ... Tony Ornart likes to lie," Kinzinger tweeted.

"The committee is assassinated by anonymous sources and men for her personality. I'm not going to monitor. I'm claiming executive privilege, and we're very much looking forward to additional testimony under the oath on all issues, "Chainy said of ABC.
Chainy was pressured by ABC to see if the Commission had further evidence to support Hutchinson's remarks. Chaney said he had evidence of Trump's "fierce anger" when he was told he couldn't go to the Capitol and had to return to the White House.However, she did not elaborate further evidence on the controversial rush and handle-grabbing case.
"We always expected Trump World to try to hurt her credibility. They haven't disappointed us in that regard," Lofgren said of NBC. He talked about Hutchinson in "Meet the Press".
But when asked about the steps she was taking to support what she said, Lofgren said the Commission had previously spoken to Ornart, and the Commission said he. Would welcome him if he wanted to testify more, and Ornart was "part of the Trump World."

I had a question with Democrat Adam Schiff. A committee interviewing Ornart and Engel first told him that Trump was trying to grab the handle of his car. When I heard it, on CBS. Mr Schiff said he would not discuss the details of past testimony, said the Commission welcomed these men to testify again, and noted that they were not disputed in other parts of Hutchinson's testimony.
Hutchinson also supports her testimony in a statement by her lawyer.
