Cassidy Hutchinson’s supposed “bombshell” testimony to the House Jan. 6 committee was so uncertain that “a first-year law student could have driven a truck through the holes,” said journalist and attorney Megyn Kelly on her Sirius XM broadcast.
Hutchinson, an aide to then-White House chief of staff Mark Meadows, told the committee this week that former President Donald Trump became incensed when he was prevented from going to the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6 and allegedly grabbed at the vehicle’s steering wheel, then lunged at a Secret Service agent.
Kelly, who is admittedly no great fan of the former president and his questionable “temperament,” argued that the Jan. 6 committee is so motivated by fear and hatred that they’ll do anything “it takes” to stop Donald Trump from running again in 2024.
“As many of you may recall, I raised questions about Donald Trump’s temperament to be president at a debate back in 2015. I think that was a fair issue then and I think it was at the root of why he lost in 2020,” she asserted. “But what’s happening on Capitol Hill is a very long sleight of hand. This committee has one goal and only one goal: to stop Donald Trump from running again in 2024. They’re worried he could win.”
Kelly noted the one-sided makeup of the committee, pointing out that there are “no Trump defenders, not a single Trump ally and no objective trier of fact.” She accused the committee of “doctor[ing]” the riot video and Trump sound bites used at the hearing.
“If this committee would just be honest about its mission, I might be more invested. I might be more interested. Instead, it cloaks itself in sanctimony, purporting to be a fair-minded, down-the-middle finder of fact just looking to get to the truth of January 6th. It’s a lie, and they prove every time they get together that it’s a lie,” she added.
Cassidy Hutchinson’s supposed “bombshell” testimony is “causing Democrats and the press to collapse onto their fainting couches,” Kelly went on to say before launching into a one-by-one breakdown of each of the testimony’s major points.
“A first-year law student could have driven a truck through the holes in that testimonial. Unfortunately, none was present … never mind a full-fledged lawyer presenting Donald Trump’s defense or even just pressing the witness on certain problems with her testimony,” she stated.
