There are signs that Cassidy Hutchinson's testimony to the January 6 panel on Tuesday has prompted a number of supporters of Donald Trump and conservative media outlets to stop defending the former president's actions.

 

Hutchinson, a former top aide to ex-White House chief of staff Mark Meadows, made damaging allegations against Trump during a House committee hearing.

 

These include claims that Trump was aware that some of his supporters were armed on January 6 but he didn't care as "they're not here to hurt me." After being told about people at the Ellipse rally carrying weapons, Trump still urged his supporters to march to the Capitol where the Electoral College certification ceremony was taking place.

...

While there remain hardline Trump supporters who still stand by the former president and dismissed Hutchinson's testimony as "hearsay," some others who previously defended him have started to change their tune.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The congressional panel investigating the Jan. 6, 2021, U.S. Capitol attack may make a criminal referral to the Justice Department recommending that anybody who tried to influence testimony be prosecuted, Representative Liz Cheney told ABC News in a report broadcast on Thursday.

Please, again no evidence. The thought of Trump lunging and attacking secret service is comical.

He's a comical kind of guy.

Maybe he can do stand up sets in prison.

It is a pity that young Ms. Hutchinson can't actually remember what was actually said. Her testimony was riddled with "he said something to the effect of...." or that she overheard "something to the effect of...".  IF there were any genuine cross examination of her testimony she would be torn apart in short order. Her memory of fairly recent and major events is rather vague and spotty.  She was "in the vicinity of conversations" that she never took part in. 

 

She offers indirect, overhear paraphrases, not direct eyewitness testimony. 

 

Not to mention that the whole incident, Trump muscling his protective detail and trying to choke one of them, is comical. This is the same guy the Democrats said needed two hands to hold a glass of water. Now he can drive with one hand while fending off a trained federal agent with the other? It defies credibility. 

That in no way establishes that he wouldn't have been angry and stupid enough to try.

You may be right. THis may be "the bombshell". Perhaps "the walls are closing in". Is it "the beginning of the end" for the Bad Orange Man? 

 

Forgive me for being skeptical but we have been hearing that kind of hyperbole for years now. Can't blame the Democrats for trying, especially considering how deeply unpopular the current occupant of the White House is. They have nothing to run on in the fall, no accomplishments to speak of, so the best they can hope for is to drag the corpse of the 2020 campaign back out and keep beating on it. 

The crime has neither been solved, tried or punished yet. It's far from a dead horse. It's still a work in progress and its extremely relevant given ongoing efforts to allow the rules to be broken in future, even in the event of the efforts being unconstitutional. And finally, Trump may yet run again so the 2020 election will be very relevant despite your wish to sweep it under the carpet.
