Jan. 6 hearing: Trump tried to grab steering wheel, force limo to US Capitol, former aide testifies
CA, 29 Jun 2022
Former U.S. President Donald Trump became irate and allegedly tried to grab the steering wheel of the Secret Service limousine when told he would not be joining supporters moving on the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, Cassidy Hutchison, a former aide, testified on Tuesday.
"I'm the effing president, take me up to the Capitol now," Trump was quoted as saying by Hutchinson in testimony to the congressional panel investigating the Jan. 6 assault on the Capitol, where lawmakers were meeting to certify Trump's loss in the 2020 election.
A Secret Service agent had to physically restrain Trump who, sitting in the back seat, used his free hand to lunge toward the neck of Secret Service agent Robert Engel, Hutchinson testified.
Plus, she also testified that on the day of the attack, Trump allegedly said he didn’t care if his supporters had weapons because “they’re not here to hurt me.” Hutchison added he allegedly said, “Let the people in, they can march [to] the Capitol from here.”
