TRUMP KNEW BEFORE JAN. 6 THAT “THE PROUD BOYS” WERE FULLY ARMED WITH AK-47 FULLY AUTOMATIC RIFLES, HANDGUNS, KNIVES, AND BRASS KNUCKLES AND LOOKING TO HANG MIKE PENCE. DURING TRUMP’S SPEECH BEFORE GOING TO THE CAPITAL SECURITY HAD METAL DETECTORS SET UP IN FRONT OF TRUMPS PODIUM. THE PROUD BOYS WHO WERE ARMED WANTED TO GET RIGHT UP FRONT TO THE STAGE LIKE TRUMP INSTRUCTED THEM, BUT BECAUSE OF ALL THE WEAPONS THEY FEARED SECURITY WOULD TAKE THEM, AND THEY WOULD ALL GO TO JAIL. THIS REALLY PISSED OFF TRUMP!! HE SCREAMED FOR THE METAL DETECTORS TO BE REMOVED SO HIS CRIMINAL MISFITS COULD COME IN AND MOVE RIGHT UP IN FRONT OF THE STAGE…
TRUMP BY THIS TIME WAS LOSING IT BECAUSE HIS SECURITY TEAM KNEW THERE WERE SERIOUS SECURITY BREECHES AT THE CAPITAL AND EVERY TIME HE DEMANDED THE SECURITY DETAIL THAT HE NEEDS TO GE TO THE CAPITAL ASAP THEY WOULD TELL HIM NO, NO, NO WE ARE GOING TO THE WHITE HOUSE INSTEAD………PapaMike
Just a thought, Cassidy Hutchinson was sworn in under oath and TRUMP WAS SPEAKING ON “SOCIAL MEDIA”…..So who are you going to believe? There’s a picture at the bottom of this article that maybe could help you decide. ( unless you’re a member of The Proud Boys ) Their motto is, “Don’t Confuse Me With The FACTS, My Mind Is Already Made Up )………PapaMike
- Ex-President Donald Trump lunged at a Secret Service agent in a limousine when, for security reasons was told he could not be taken to the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, a former White House aide testified.
- “I’m the ‘THE FUCKING PRESIDENT, take me up to the Capitol now!” Trump insisted, said Cassidy Hutchinson, describing what she was told had happened in the limo that day.
- Hutchinson, who worked for Trump White House chief of staff Mark Meadows, revealed the incident to the select House committee investigating the Capitol riot.
- Trump wanted to go to the Capitol that day after urging supporters at a rally to “fight” against the confirmation of the Electoral College victory of President Joe Biden.
Former President Donald Trump lunged at a Secret Service agent in a rage in the presidential limousine when told he could not be taken to the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, a former White House aide testified Tuesday.
“I’m the ‘effing’ president, take me up to the Capitol now!” Trump insisted, according to the aide, Cassidy Hutchinson, describing what she was told had happened in the limo that day.
Trump also grabbed the steering wheel of the limo in a fury after learning he would not be taken there, Hutchinson said.
Hutchinson, who had served as a top aide to Trump White House chief of staff Mark Meadows, revealed the dramatic incident for the first time at an abruptly scheduled hearing of the select House committee investigating the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol.
Trump had wanted to go to the Capitol that day after speaking at a rally outside of the White House to supporters, whom he urged to march with him to Congress and “fight” against the ongoing confirmation of President Joe Biden’s electoral victory.
But White House lawyers were strongly opposed to Trump doing so, fearing that it could lead to charges of inciting a riot or interfering with the Electoral College certification process.
Pat Cipollone, who had the time was Trump’s White House counsel, warned staff “we’re going to get charged with every crime imaginable” if Trump went to Capitol, Hutchinson testified.
But she said that when Trump ended his rally outside the White House on Jan. 6, he got into the presidential limo, known as “The Beast,” with Secret Service Special Agent Bobby Engel while still under the impression from Meadows that it was still possible for him to go to the Capitol and likely to happen.
Engel was the head of Trump’s protective detail.
“So once the President had gotten into the vehicle with Bobby, he thought that they were going up to the Capitol, and when Bobby had relayed to him, we’re not you don’t have the assets to do it,” said Hutchinson, who testimony was based on what she soon after was told at White House by another aide, Tony Ornato.
Engel told Trump, ” ‘It’s not secure. We’re going back to the West Wing,’ ” Hutchinson said.
“The President had a very strong, very angry response to that. Tony described him as being irate,” she testified.
Trump said something like, ′ I’m the effing president, take me up to the Capitol now,′ ” she testified.
When Engel then refused again, Trump “reached up towards the front of the vehicle to grab at the steering wheel. Mr. Engel grabbed his arm, said, ‘Sir, you need to take your hand off the steering wheel. We’re going back to the West Wing,’ ” Hutchinson said, citing Ornato’s account.
Trump “then used his free hand to lunge toward Bobby Engel,” Hutchinson testified.
When Onato told her this, he motioned his hands toward his clavicle, she said.
Hutchinson also testified that when she saw Engel at the White House after the incident, he was sitting and looking “somewhat discombobulated” and “lost.”
Trump denied Hutchinson’s account and criticized her in a series of posts on his social media site.
“Her Fake story that I tried to grab the steering wheel of the White House Limousine in order to steer it to the Capitol Building is ‘sick’ and fraudulent, very much like the Unselect Committee itself — Wouldn’t even have been possible to do such a ridiculous thing,” Trump wrote.
