Trump's Secret Service Outburst has been a Rumor in the Service for nearly a Year
According to reports from CNN...
According to numerous reports, the story of Trump lunging at his Secret Service agents has spread around the hill for the past year. Two Secret Service sources have told eerily similar stories to Cassidy Hutchinson’s story. One of the sources stated Trump demanded to be driven to the Capitol and backed up the story that he [Trump] lunged at his Secret Service agent.
“It was unclear from the conversations I had that he actually made physical contact, but he might have. I don't know. Nobody said Trump assaulted him; they said he tried to lunge over the seat— for what reason, nobody had any idea.”
The source reported to CNN.
The other source said that while he has never heard of the physical situation, he was told that Trump just verbally attacked the driver as he wanted to go to the Capitol. Trump yelled, “I’m the fucking President. Take me up to the Capitol now!”
Service Secret agents earlier said that Ornato denied telling Hutchinson the story. Another Secret Service agent, Bobby Engel, was in the vehicle and stated Trump did not lunge at the agent nor did he grab the steering wheel.
Engel and the driver also reportedly prepared to testify before the Committee under oath. The credibility of Engel and Ornato has come under question as they’ve been rumored to be Trump’s Secret Service “yes men.”
