If all True, these are the Most Damaging Allegations made against Trump during the January 6th Hearings
That is, so far...
Americans have their eyes fixed on the TV every single time the House Select Committee investigation of the January 6th Capitol Riots is aired. According to the panel during the aired hearings, Trump knew his claims of election fraud were in themselves fraudulent, he encouraged the rioters, and also endangered his own VP using the anger of the rioters.
With Cassidy Hutchinson being the most recent individual to testify, she brought with her - if true - some of the most damning recounts of Donald Trump on the fateful day of January 6th. She mentioned his dying “need” to go to the Capitol as well as going as far as to grab his Secret Service driver by the neck and continuously reaching for the wheel.
This obviously wasn’t the only dirt said or found against Trump, but it is for sure the most circulated. However, many should know ALL that has transpired as to allegations made against Trump so far from the January 6th hearings. Here are some of the most damaging…
Trump’s Campaign Manager was Proud to be on “Team Normal”
In the second hearing, held on June 13th, the world heard of Trump knowing his election fraud claims were fraudulent in themselves given how many people within his base of kiss asses were telling him this. The most prominent member of those telling him to cut it out was his own campaign manager, Bill Stepien, who said he “Didn’t mind being characterized as being part of ‘Team Normal’, as reporters kinda started to do around that point in time.”
Following this, Bill Stepien said he hoped many knew him for his good reputation of being honest and professional and at the time of Trump pushing for the big lie, he [Stepien] “Didn’t think what was happening was necessarily honest or professional at that point in time.”
Trump Believed his Vice President, Mike Pence, Deserved to be Hanged
In what many would consider the scariest of the allegations, the rioters gave out chants of “Hang Mike Pence,” as they stormed the Capitol. According to many sources, the reasoning behind their wishes against Pence came as he wouldn’t aid in overturning the election.
Cassidy Hutchinson stated in her testimony that Trump was very unconcerned about Mike Pence and his fate. As she looked back on a conversation between Meadows and Pat Cipollone, the White House counsel, she said the conversation was as so:
Cipollone: “They are literally calling for the vice president to be effing hung.”
Meadows: “You heard him, Pat. He thinks Mike deserves it. He doesn’t think they’re doing anything wrong.”
Trump wanted to join the Capitol Rioters
Once again coming from Cassidy Hutchinson’s testimony, tells the now well-known story of Trump lunging for the steering wheel after getting into a physical altercation with a Secret Service agent after being told he was not going to the Capitol.
The truthfulness surrounding this allegation is still in the air as the Secret Service agent involved and the driver of the vehicle is reportedly willing to testify that the situation did not occur. However, two Secret Service agents have confirmed they heard accounts similar to the one shared by Hutchinson.
This leads to the previous rally held before the Capitol riots, the Ellipse rally, where Trump is said to have said, “I don’t fucking care that they have weapons. They’re not here to hurt me … They can march to the Capitol from here.”
In his own defense, Trump took to his Truth Social account to insist that he “didn’t want or request that we make room for people with guns to watch my speech.” He added, “Who would ever want that?”
Election Defense Funds Don’t Exist
According to Zoe Lofgren, Trump’s “big lie also led to a big rip-off.” She cited the fundraising emails that were sent out by Trump’s team. On some days, according to Zoe, more than 20 emails were sent.
The emails targeted Trump supporters and asked them to donate money to the “Election Defense Fund” and promised the money would be used to push the narrative of fraudulent elections. However, the Election Defense Fund didn’t exist and it still doesn’t exist.
Gary Coby, the former digital director for Trump and his campaign said it best, “I don’t believe there is actually a fund called the ‘Election Defense Fund,’ ” He also went on to say that at best it was a marketing ruse.
