The House Subcommittee on Oversight is investigating Cassidy Hutchinson, a former Trump administration member and key witness in the 2021 Capitol riot.

Chairman Barry Loudermilk is focusing on changes in Hutchinson’s testimony, particularly regarding an incident involving Trump and the Secret Service.

Testimony from another witness and Hutchinson’s text messages challenge her assertions.

Hutchinson’s narrative changed significantly, and her initial allegations have not been amended despite subsequent inconsistencies.

“On June 28, 2022, you testified during one of the Select Committee’s primetime hearings. During this hearing you asserted that former President Donald Trump attempted to grab the steering wheel from one United States Secret Service employee driving the vehicle and lunged at another,” Loudermilk wrote.

“However, in your previous three transcribed interviews on February 23, 2022, March 7, 2022, and May 17, 2022, you did not mention this interaction,” he added.

“Did you ever find out what happened with that conversation in the Beast between the President and Mr. Engel [a Secret Service official]?” investigators questioned.

“Just that Mr. Engel had relayed the message that him and Mr. Ornato had discussed previously and knowing there was no — there were no developments that would’ve changed the guidance he was given before the rally had begun, that we didn’t have the assets available, and that was just reconveyed to the President,” Hutchinson said.

“Bobby [Engle—the Secret Service official] had said, ‘Sir, I’m going to need you to take your hand off. We’re going back to the White House. That’s final.’ Mr. Trump again was extremely angry at that response and used his free hand, to my understanding, to then lunge at Bobby Engle,” she added.

“I don’t recall that conversation taking place, nor do I recall being aware of any details that happened from the motorcade from the Ellipse to the White House,” Ornato said.

The situation has raised questions surrounding the accuracy of her testimony.
