Nothing suspicious here at all

"Surprise hearing! You need to tune in for all the juicy details!"

It's not hard to tell the hearings are being run by a Hollywood producer.

Cassidy Hutchinson testifies that she was told that as then-President Donald Trump was being driven back to the White House after the Jan. 6 rally that he demanded to be taken to the Capitol and tried to grab the steering wheel from a Secret Service agent.

"She was told that..."

If this is such an A-Team committee, why did they call her to the stand instead of the person who "told" her? We have government agents arresting grannies from all over the country for walking through the capitol, but they can't track down the fed.gov employee who "told her" so they could get first hand testimony?

And this is "historic" news?!?

Perjury for sure. Show me exactly how any president in the last thirty years has had access to anything remotely close to the steering wheel.

    Cassidy Hutchinson's words pulsed with the power and electricity of history and truth. Talk about speaking truth to power. Shame on all those who were also there on Jan. 6 and have refused to share what they saw and heard with the committee and American people.

I'm not sure how hearsay testimony equals a bombshell revelation.  Can someone explain how that works?
Oh, wait.  Did Rep. Schiff bring this witness forward?
If there really was intelligent life on other planets, we'd be sending them foreign aid.

Conservatives see George Orwell's "1984" as a cautionary tale.  Progressives view it as a "how to" manual.

How many Democrats does it take to fix a problem?  No one knows because it's never happened.

Donald Trump knew supporters had weapons when he urged them to storm the Capitol to overturn the 2020 election, a former White House aide has said.

Strikes me as pretty damned incompetent, and that means that the best minds, the very best minds, were not consulted, as to how to run a coup attempt...
 
No takeover of the media (sigh...).
 
And... Where were the tanks and crew-served weapons?

It appears that the secret service agent is prepared to testify, if the committee calls on him, that Trump never laid hands on him. Interesting that the guy that was there wants to testify, but the committee went with the dizzy broad who heard it second hand.

I don’t care which vehicle it is (armored or regular).  Nobody is going to easily wrest control of a vehicle from any driver, let alone a secret service agent, from the backseat.  Or even from the front passenger seat.  I mean, all the driver has to do is stomp on the brake.  Short of killing said driver or forcing him out the door there’s not a lot a passenger can do to make the vehicle go somewhere very specifically against the driver’s will.

More evidence coming out that this is another Christine Blasey Ford, via more people that were actually present. It seems that most everything she is testifying about is hearsay.

JOURNALISTS, all day yesterday: Trump assaulted his Secret Service agents and grabbed the wheel of the presidential limo!!! Headline news. Smoking gun!!!!

SECRET SERVICE AGENTS: That never happened.

JOURNALISTS: That was never an important part of the testimony.



This sounds like what I suspect actually happened:

@PeterAlexander
A source close to the Secret Service says both men dispute Trump grabbed the steering wheel or assaulted an agent. They do not deny that Trump was irate and demanded they drive to the Capitol. (2/2)

The film's producers have been tight-lipped about the plot but did confirm that Trump would grab the wheel from his limo driver and attempt to ram into the Capitol building. Reports also indicate there will be a scene where Trump hijacks a bus and tells the driver he has to drive over 50 miles per hour or it will explode.
