Cassidy Hutchinson, a former White House aide during the Trump Administration who made a number of bizarre claims while testifying before the questionable House January 6 Committee, is under fire as House Republicans have called the validity of her testimony into doubt. Congressional investigators are demanding that Hutchinson produce documents and have vowed to issue a subpoena if she refuses to comply.
On Monday, the House Oversight subcommittee for House Administration sent a letter to Hutchinson demanding she preserve and produce all records and materials in her possession related to the events of the January 6 Capitol protests, according to a report from the Daily Caller. Committee chairman Barry Loudermilk (R-GA) called on Hutchinson to preserve all documents, communications, electronic information and metadata that is or could be related to her testimony.
Hutchinson — who served as a “star witness” for the committee’s Hollywood-edited hearings — made a number of bizarre claims. In one notorious accusation, Hutchinson claimed that Trump tried to wrestle the steering wheel away from his Secret Service detail when the protests were unfolding.
This report has been refuted by a number of Secret Service personnel.

“On June 28, 2022, you testified during one of the Select Committee’s primetime hearings. During this hearing you asserted that former President Donald Trump attempted to grab the steering wheel from one United States Secret Service employee driving the vehicle and lunged at another,” Loudermilk wrote in the letter.
“However, in your previous three transcribed interviews on February 23, 2022, March 7, 2022, and May 17, 2022, you did not mention this interaction. You subsequently testified that you spoke with Alyssa Farah Griffin in order to orchestrate the third interview with the Select Committee on May 17th without your attorney’s knowledge. Despite this, you did not recount this attention-grabbing series of events during the May 17th interview,” he continued.
“This letter serves as formal notice and instruction to preserve and produce all documents, communications, and other information, including electronic information and metadata, that is or may be responsible to this congressional inquiry. This includes all materials you previously turned over to the Select Committee. This instruction includes all electronic messages sent using official and personal accounts or devices, including records created using text messages, phone-based message applications, or encryption software,” Loudermilk added.
Before sending the letter, Loudermilk told the Daily Caller that Hutchinson’s actions are “deeply concerning” and vowed to issue a subpoena if she does not comply.
Loudermilk has previously reported that the deposition tapes for a number of key January 6 witnesses — including Hutchinson — are “missing.”
