The committee then played a clip of Trump’s comments at the rally urging his supporters to march toward the Capitol — words that seemed grim in the context of testimonies claiming he knew they posed a security risk.

Trump aggressively denied the claims on his social media platform Truth Social.

“Never complained about the crowd, it was huge,” he said. “I didn’t want or ask that we make room for people with guns to watch my speech. Who would want that? Not me! In addition, no weapons were found or brought into the Capitol. So where were all these weapons? But unfortunately Ashli ​​Babbitt was killed with a gun, without the person using it having to pay a price!’

Babbitt was fatally shot by police during the Capitol riot when she attempted to climb through a broken window into the Speaker’s Lobby outside the House room.

“I’m the effing president, take me to the Capitol now,” she ordered.

When Secret Service refused, Hutchinson said agents told her he jumped at the wheel of his car — known as The Beast.

“Sir, you need to take your hand off the steering wheel. We’re going back to the West Wing, we’re not going to the Capitol,’ Hutchinson told Secret Service agent Richard Engel.

‘Mr. Trump then used his free hand to lunge at Bobby Engel,” Hutchinson recalled.

Former deputy chief of staff Tony Ornato “waved at his collarbone,” she added, as a sign that the president went to his security agent’s throat.

Towards the end of the first half of the hearing, Trump took to his app Truth Social to say he “barely knew” Hutchinson.

“I hardly know who this person, Cassidy Hutchinson, is, except that I’ve heard very negative things about her (a total fake and a ‘leaker’), and when she asked to go to Florida with certain others on the team after I have served a full term in office, I have personally made her request now,” he said.

Describing Trump as a person prone to fiery anger, Hutchinson claimed that he once threw his lunch against a wall, smashed a plate and turned over tablecloths “to make all the contents at the table fall to the floor” multiple times.
