Hutchinson's bombshell Jan. 6 testimony sways legal experts and conservative media

Source: NPR

Honig told NPR the reports that question the anecdote about what took place in Trump's vehicle are potentially damaging.

"This is what we call a credibility contest, and people would have to decide who they believe," Honig said.

"I think it's really important to note that another White House staffer Alyssa Farah...has said publicly that she testified to the committee about something that Tony Ornato said to her that was damning to the president and Ornato, she said, falsely denied that as well," Honig said. "If I have to decide between Cassidy Hutchinson and Alyssa Farah...and Tony Ornato, I'm coming out on Hutchinson and Farah's side."

Neophytes against corruption, the young versus the old. Ms. Hutchinson was just too honest and too idealistic for all the slimeballs to carry the day.

i thought he was sitting in the room looking "befuddled" (or something to that effect) (according to cassidy) while tony told her the story.

if it wasn't true why wouldn't the agent correct the guy relaying the story to her?

on edit: or am i getting the storyteller confused with someone else?

Ornato waved Hutchinson into his office and told her the story while Engel sat and listened. Hutchinson described Engel as looking befuddled or discombobulated or something to that effect. At no time during Ornato's description of what happened did Engel disagree wih or correct it.

and tried to get other government officials murdered.

That's what counts

And notice that they aren't talking about that so much.

Don't let them grab the narrative over whether Trump lost it in an SUV or not. That's not what counts.

Administration. How often does an SS agent get raised up into a staff position?

That seems like an indicator of being a TFG supporter to me.

Also makes his motives and credibility suspect in my book.
