A new report from the Daily Caller discovered that Cassidy Hutchinson, a fake January 6th committee witness from last week, sought help from First Amendment groups and called the fake committee’s actions “BS.”
On February 1, she sent a text asking for help from the First Amendment Foundation, a group started The American Conservative Union, which is helping Trump officials cover legal costs related to the bogus January 6 investigation. Hutchison appeared to have a rather different take on the committee before her appearance at the “emergency hearing” last week.
Hutchinson received no support from the group despite her request.
Matt Schlapp, who helps manage the fund, said he’s happy they didn’t help Hutchinson. In a post on Twitter, he said that “reporting WH corridor gossip as fact does not qualify as first-person testimony.”
Mrs. Hutchinson approached @CPAC for helping through our First Amendment Fund, which has helped J6 political victims defend themselves. I’m glad we didn’t help her performance today. Spreading WH hallway gossip as fact does not qualify as first person testimony. https://t.co/nfQbPshIju

In the text, Hutchinson says, “Hey (redacted)! This is Cassidy Hutchinson. Random question, but do you still work at Schlapp’s ACU?
The person replied, “Hi, yes!”
Hutchinson then said, “Do you happen to know a First Amendment Foundation POC that I could contact? I was subpoenaed in early November, but the committee waited to serve me until last week (after Ben’s deposition).
“I had to take the job because the US Marshals came to my apartment last Wednesday, but I haven’t been in touch with the committee. I’m just on a tight timeline and just trying to figure out what my options are to get through this bs,” Hutchinson added.
Hutchinson came under the spotlight of the Jan. 6 committee last week in her now-largely debunked testimony.
Hutchinson, a former assistant to White House chief of staff Mark Meadows, issued a new statement last week defending her false testimony.
“Ms. Hutchinson stands by all of the testimony she gave under oath yesterday to the Select Committee to investigate the January 6th attack on the United States Capitol,” Hutchinson counsel Jodi Hunt and William Jordan said. statement to CNN.
Hunting too answered on Twitter claims she lied saying “Ms. Hutchinson testified under oath and recounted what she was told. Those who know about this episode must also testify under oath.

However, almost all of her testimony has been refuted or completely refuted by those who were present at the time of the events. Almost all of her “shocking testimony” was presented as hearsay because she was not present at the actual events she testified about on Tuesday.
Gateway Pundit previously reported that Hutchinson lied to the American public at least NINE TIMES during her testimony.

The first false claim said Trump grabbed the steering wheel of the SUV he was riding in and then lunged at Secret Service agent Robert “Bobby” Engel when Engel told him he wasn’t going to the Capitol.
“I’m the f—ing president! Take me to the Capitol now! Trump allegedly shouted.
Hutchinson said she was told about the incident by the White House’s deputy chief of operations that day, Anthony Ornato.
Secret Service Communications Director Anthony Guglielmi said in a statement: “The Secret Service has cooperated fully with the Select Committee since it was established in the spring of 2021, and we will continue to do so by responding formally and on the record to the Committee regarding new allegations that emerged in yesterday’s testimony.
“The Secret Service has cooperated fully with the select committee since it was established in the spring of 2021, and we will continue to do so by responding formally and on the record to the committee regarding new allegations made in today’s testimony,” Guglielmi said.
Guglielmi told Politico that the committee did not ask Secret Service agents to reappear or answer questions in the ten days before Hutchinson was interviewed at Tuesday’s hearing.
CNN’s Shimon Prokupechs tweeted On Tuesday, “a Secret Service official familiar with the matter told CNN that Tony Ornato denies telling Cassidy Hutchinson that the former president grabbed the wheel or that an agent in his detail.”
🚨 A source close to the Secret Service tells me that both Bobby Engel, the lead agent, and the driver of the President’s limousine/SUV are prepared to testify under oath that neither man was assaulted and that Mr. Trump never threw up behind the wheel.

NBC News reporter Peter Alexander tweeted “A source close to the Secret Service tells me that both Bobby Engel, the lead agent, and the driver of the President’s limousine/SUV are prepared to testify under oath that neither man was assaulted and that Mr. Trump never threw up behind the wheel.”
Hutchinson vividly recounted helping to clean ketchup off a West Wing dining room wall after Trump, angered by Attorney General Bill Barr’s Dec. 1, 2020 interview with the Associated Press, challenged the president’s election fraud. accusations.
Trump denied the report, saying: “Her story about me throwing away the food is also false… and why would SHE have to clean it up, I hardly knew who she was?” Trump said.
Hutchinson testified that as pro-Trump rioters ransacked the Capitol and sent officials fleeing for safety, she jotted down alleged remarks in which Trump would urge the rioters to go home.
She said, “It’s my handwriting,” as the note was submitted as evidence.
“Anyone trespassing on Capitol grounds without proper authorization must leave immediately,” the memo said.
Representative of former White House counsel Erik Hershmanis told ABC News on Tuesday that Hershman wrote the memo on Jan. 6.
Trump was reportedly furious when metal detectors thinned the crowd for his event at the Ellipse before the riots. Hutchinson claimed that Trump requested the removal of the metal detectors because protesters allegedly observed him carrying AR-15-style semi-automatic rifles that would not hurt him.
“I was in the vicinity of a conversation where I overheard the president say something like, ‘I don’t care if they have guns.’ They are not here to hurt me. Get the f—ing magazines off,” Hutchinson said.
There is no evidence of such an event from anyone involved in the events of January 6.
“Never complained about the crowd, it was huge. I didn’t want or demand that we make room for people with guns to watch my speech. Who would ever want that? ME not!” trump card wrote on Truth Social.
“Furthermore, no weapons were found or brought into the Capitol… So where were all these weapons? But unfortunately A gun was used against Ashley BabbittWith there is no charge against the person who used it!”
Hutchinson’s testimony depicted Meadows as strangely detached from the events of Jan. 6, often absorbed in his phone as the chaos unfolded around him.
“I remember thinking at that point, ‘Mark has got to snap out of this, and I don’t know how to snap him out of this, but he’s got to take care,'” Hutchinson testified.
Ben Williamson, Meadows’ former top aide, responded to the claim a text message to NBC News: “I have worked for Mark Meadows for 7 years – any suggestion that he was indifferent is ridiculous. And if the committee really wanted answers to that question, they could have played my interview in which I told them how Meadows acted immediately when I told him about the initial violence at the Capitol that day. They seem more interested in rumours, speculations and conjectures as a means of smearing people, and it’s obvious why.
While most of her testimony has been proven false or outright refuted by those involved, the bogus committee’s star witness continues to defend her lies.
