1/6 Committee Just Put Themselves In A Humiliating Catch 22
In response to Cassidy Hutchinson’s testimony falling apart, the January 6 Committee issued a subpoena to former White House counsel Pat Cipollone on June 29th, 2022. They are doing that despite the fact that he has already spoken before the committee behind closed doors.
Hutchinson, an aide to then-White House chief of staff mark Meadows testified that former President Trump tried to commandeer a vehicle to get to the Capitol.
Within moments after Hutchinson’s claims, the Secret Service was ready to rebut her assertions under oath.
From Breitbart News:
Other claims also collapsed. Hutchinson claimed to have penned a handwritten draft of Trump’s remarks on the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol riot, but former Trump White House lawyer Eric Herschmann said that he had written it.
Hutchinson also testified that Cipollone had expressed concerns about Trump’s remarks and his desire to visit the Capitol because of the risk of “potentially obstructing justice or defrauding the electoral account.” She also testified that Cipollone had burst into Meadows’ office on Jan. 6 to urge the President to issue a statement after rioters broke into the Capitol, and that he had wanted the president to issue a strong statement condemning violence on January 7, the day following the riot.
Reports have been uncovered that Cipollone wasn’t in the White House when Hutchinson testified she spoke with him.
BREAKING: Multiple sources including one who was at the WH on Jan 6 tell me Cipollone was not there in the am when Hutchinson testified she spoke with him. J6 Cmtes is aware of this discrepancy & are ignoring media inquiries about it. Seems she made up the entire conversation

It also appears that the committee is going to have a witness corroborate steeringwheelgate but will not have the secret service agents who were with the president testify.
A committee spox tells @CNN: “The Committee trusts the credibility of a witness who was willing to testify under oath & in public but is also willing to hear any information that others may have that would aid in their investigation.” https://t.co/WqxSCcysgf

Breitbart has also reported that other witnesses are upset with the committee because they abused their testimony behind closed doors by releasing doctored excerpts during the public hearings.
