Cassidy Hutchinson felt like it was her “duty and responsibility” to share with Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s politically motivated Jan. 6 select committee her shocking observations of President Donald Trump’s actions and other events surrounding January 6, 2021, believing “it is vital to the future of our democracy that it not be repeated.”
That’s according to Hutchinson’s own attorneys, yet it is now being reported that her concerns about “our democracy” were waylaid for at least nine weeks — because she continued to work for Trump, according to Business Insider.
Citing government records, the Insider reported that while others in the administration left, Hutchinson stuck around for more than two months:
Hutchinson served as a “coordinator” for Trump’s official, taxpayer-funded, post-presidential office from about January 20, 2021, to April 1, 2021, earning an annualized salary of $90,000, the General Services Administration documents state.
The documents establish that Hutchinson continued to earn a government paycheck for work in support of Trump for weeks after she witnessed his actions — and lack of action — on January 6, even as other colleagues resigned soon thereafter.
Bloomberg News also reported days after the Jan. 6 protest that Hutchinson “may work” for Trump after the White House.
Hutchinson’s fanciful testimony included the claim that Trump, from the backseat of the presidential SUV, grabbed the steering wheel of the vehicle while simultaneously reaching for the throat of a Secret Service agent after being told that they would not take him to the U.S. Capitol after his speech at the Stop the Steal rally. She also claimed the then-president threw a plate of food against a wall and that he told Secret Service to stop screening protesters with magnetometers, or metal detectors.
She testified that Trump said “something to the effect of, ‘I don’t effing care that they have weapons. They’re not here to hurt me. Take the effing mags away. Let my people in. They can march the Capitol from here. Let the people in. Take the effing mags away.'”
Trump would take to his Truth Social app after she testified to say Hutchinson asked to be part of his team that returned with him to his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida.
“I hardly know who this person, Cassidy Hutchinson, is, other than I heard very negative things about her (a total phony and ‘leaker’), and when she requested to go with certain others of the team to Florida after my having served a full term in office, I personally turned her request down,” he wrote.
“Why did she want to go with us if she felt we were so terrible?” Trump said. “I understand that she was very upset and angry that I didn’t want her to go, or be a member of the team. She is bad news!”
The former aide to then-White House chief of staff Mark Meadows testified before the Jan. 6 committee about how “disgusted” she was over the course of events taking place that fateful day.
“As an American, I was disgusted. It was unpatriotic. It was un-American,” Hutchinson said. “We were watching the Capitol building get defaced over a lie. And it was something that was really hard in that moment to digest knowing what I’d been hearing down the hall in the conversations that were happening.”
