According to a Secret Service source, Donald Trump 'tried to lunge over the seat' on Jan. 6. Efforts to discredit Cassidy Hutchinson just got tougher.

Hutchinsonsimilarly testifiedabout Trump telling his team that then-Vice President Mike Pence “deserved” to be hunted by rioters, the warnings Trump received about the prospect of violence. We also learned about cabinet secretaries considering removing the then-president from office, requested pardons, possible witness tampering, and thrown ketchup on a White House wall.

But there was another part of this week’s hearing that wasn’t nearly as substantive or as legally significant, but which generated plenty of conversation: Hutchinson described a scene, which had been described to her by Tony Ornato, of Trump going a little berserk after his Secret Service agents told him he back to the White House after his speech at the Ellipse, not to the Capitol.

Claim that Secret Service restrained Trump on Jan. 6 nonsensical, former agent saysThe allegation that a Secret Service agent restrained former President Donald Trump as he tried to take control of the wheel of his presidential SUV on Jan. 6 is farcical and absurd, a former agent told the Washington Examiner. Oh geez Washington paper -please find a new gig. All the commies wanting any republican under oath. While every democrat criminal gets on the stand and gets amnesia. 🤡 Most his secret service was Maga…plus money talks 💰

Secret Service ties to Trump ring alarm bells amid Jan 6. revelationsInvestigative journalist Carol Leonnig has claimed that some Secret Service agents seemed to support the Capitol riot. There needs to be an investigation and house cleaning at the SS. Their job is to protect their protectees, not to have political positions.

'I was a Secret Service agent. I wouldn't have taken Trump to the Capitol either'From my 14 years working in the Secret Service, I know that Presidents don't like to be told 'no.' I don’t think you needed to be a SS agent to make the simple observation that removing mags & allowing Chump to go to the Capitol would have been an abject dereliction of duty. SS did it’s job under intense adverse conditions. NO, NO NO NO! Some are told no and act like adults.Donnie had hissy fits.

The Secret Service Has Had Some Wild Incidents in the Past. This Week’s Revelation Was Something Else.'The only thing I can think of is when Lyndon Johnson threatened to shoot out the tires of a follow-up car.'

, for example, on Donald Trump wanting to get rid of metal detectors so that armed supporters could hear him lie before they went to Capitol Hill.President Donald Trump made a “lunge” at his protection officer when he was unable to join his supporters at the Capitol that day.Singer Paulette McWilliams on Her Years With Marvin Gaye, Michael Jackson, and Steely Dan One source, a longtime Secret Service employee, told CNN that agents had described to him how the president “sort of lunged forward … Nobody said Trump assaulted him; they said he tried to lunge over the seat.Cassidy Hutchinson, a former aide to Trump White House chief of staff Mark Meadows, testified Tuesday that she was told that Robert Engel, the head of Trump's security detail, had grabbed the president's arm as he reached forward from the back seat and tried to take control of the steering wheel to change the vehicle's course to the Capitol building on Jan.

Just as importantly, the Republican was desperate to join the mob at his remarks. Hutchinson similarly testified about Trump telling his team that then-Vice President Mike Pence “deserved” to be hunted by rioters, the warnings Trump received about the prospect of violence.  Hutchinson, a top aide to then-White House chief of staff Mark Meadows, testified that after she returned to the West Wing following Trump’s speech at the “Stop the Steal” rally that preceded the riot, White House deputy chief of staff for operations Tony Ornato told her about a clash inside the SUV the president was using that day. We also learned about cabinet secretaries considering removing the then-president from office, requested pardons, possible witness tampering, and thrown ketchup on a White House wall.  Following Hutchinson’s testimony, The Washington Post disputed claims “that he assaulted or grabbed at the leader of his security detail or that he grabbed for the steering wheel. But there was another part of this week’s hearing that wasn’t nearly as substantive or as legally significant, but which generated plenty of conversation: Hutchinson described a scene, which had been described to her by Tony Ornato, of Trump going a little berserk after his Secret Service agents told him he back to the White House after his speech at the Ellipse, not to the Capitol. Cassidy Hutchinson testified that President Donald Trump lunged at a Secret Service agent on Jan. While the right has targeted this story in recent days, CNN published a report this afternoon, which has not been independently verified by MSNBC or NBC News, that appeared to bolster the revelations from Tuesday’s hearing. Bush between 1999 and 2004, and he believes Hutchinson's allegation is nonsensical.

Then-President Donald Trump angrily demanded to go to the US Capitol on January 6, 2021, and berated his protective detail when he didn’t get his way, according to two Secret Service sources who say they heard about the incident from multiple agents, including the driver of the presidential SUV where it occurred. REUTERS The Secret Service vowed to respond to allegations that Trump lunged at an agent and attempted to take control of “the Beast. Trump never lunged for the steering wheel. In case anyone needs a refresher , after he riled up his mob with lies, the then-president returned to his vehicle, where things reportedly got weird. According to the version events that had been described to Hutchinson, Trump got into the backseat of a presidential suburban and said, “I’m the f’ing president, take me up to the Capitol now. “So when the president had gotten into the vehicle with Bobby, he thought that they were going up to the Capitol.” When that didn’t happen, again according to the version events that had been described to Hutchinson, Trump tried to grab the steering wheel of the Suburban he was riding in. Metropolitan Police officers affiliated with the presidential motorcade shared stories with him about Trump “demanding to be [driven] to the Capitol and getting into an altercation with Secret Service on January 6. According to the former White House staffer’s understanding, Trump also reached toward the throat of Secret Service agent Robert Engel during the incident. “Tony described him as being irate." "We would not put our hands on our protectee," he added.

The former president has subsequently insisted that there was no such skirmish, but CNN’s sources said stories about incident — including the details Hutchinson described in her sworn testimony — circulated among Secret Service agents early last year. From the network’s report : While the details from those who heard the accounts differ, the Secret Service sources say they were told an angry confrontation did occur.’” Hutchinson then claimed that Trump reached toward the front of the Beast to grab the steering wheel before Engel said, “Sir, you need to take your hand off the steering wheel. And their accounts align with significant parts of Hutchinson’s testimony, which has been attacked as hearsay by Trump and his allies who also have tried to discredit her overall testimony. Like Hutchinson, one source, a longtime Secret Service employee, told CNN that the agents relaying the story described Trump as “demanding” and that the former President said something similar to: “I’m the f**king President of the United States, you can’t tell me what to do. We’re not going to the Capitol.” The source said he originally heard that kind of language was used shortly after the incident. Engel, she added, did not dispute the story.

One of CNN’s sources said, in reference to Trump, “He had sort of lunged forward -- it was unclear from the conversations I had that he actually made physical contact, but he might have. Trump then used his free hand to lunge toward Bobby Engel,” Hutchinson said. I don’t know. Nobody said Trump assaulted him; they said he tried to lunge over the seat — for what reason, nobody had any idea.” An unnamed source close to the Secret Service also denied the account to multiple news organizations — including.” CNN’s report added that the same unnamed source said he’d heard about the incident multiple times as far back as February 2021 from other agents, including some who were part of the presidential protective detail during that time period but none of whom were involved in the incident. It would appear that the right’s desperate efforts to undermine Hutchinson’s credibility have just suffered another blow. Dimitrelos said Trump physically could not have reached from the back seat of the SUV and taken control of its steering wheel.
