Leaked Chats Further Prove Cassidy Hutchinson Is a Complete Fraud


OPINION: This article may contain commentary which reflects the author's opinion.

Jan. 6 Committee hearing ‘star’ witness and former Trump administration official Cassidy Hutchinson, along with Rep. Liz Cheney, Wyoming Republican and committee co-chair, is still facing questions.

Hutchinson initially provided what appeared to be bombshell testimony in late June during a prime-time televised hearing, but much of what she claimed immediately fell under scrutiny and major push-back.

Now, according to an exclusive report by The Federalist, newly revealed text messages reveal that Hutchison did not have a high opinion of the committee when she was first called on to provide testimony.

The outlet’s senior editor, Mollie Hemingway, and correspondent Tristan Justice managed to obtain texts from Hutchinson between December 2020 through May 2021 in which she discussed the committee and its hearings with other conservatives, saying things that differed greatly from her testimony.

During her appearance before the committee, the former White House aide to Chief of Staff Mark Meadows said she “still struggle[s] to work through the emotions” of Jan. 6.


“As an American, I was disgusted. It was unpatriotic,” Hutchinson said. “We were watching the Capitol building get defaced over a lie, and it was something that was really hard in that moment to digest.”

But according to the texts uncovered by The Federalist, Hutchinson took a far different view of the committee — and of Cheney. She “commiserated with other targets of the probe about how little information she had about any wrongdoing that day, and lamented how corrupt the politicized committee was. Far from being upset with Trump, Hutchinson repeatedly spoke in favor of him and his presidency,” The Federalist noted.

Here is one example of the messages Hutchinson sent:

“I would rather shoot myself dead into the Potomac than see marine one flying around this city without 45 again,” Hutchinson wrote in one message nearly three months after the Capitol riot.

Below is another exchange she had with someone who has not been identified by The Federalist:

“Other than a handful of irrelevant texts, I have literally no documents or anything they’re asking about,” one ex-White House staffer texted her.

“Same,” she wrote back.

Of being subpoenaed in November, Hutchinson wrote, “we were [f—–] by Bennie Thompson,” the titular chair of the committee. She joked that he would be sending her to jail, and hoped that another friend would come visit her. In a text published by the Daily Caller earlier this month, Hutchinson called the panel’s probe “bs.”

Here is a longer message Hutchinson wrote in September 2021 about Cheney and Rep. Adam Kinzinger of Illinois, the two anti-Trump “Republicans” on the Democrat-led Committee:


Hutchinson disparaged Cheney and Illinois Rep. Adam Kinzinger, the two Republicans hand-picked to serve on the committee by Pelosi, as a “crop of losers.” Discussing how other anti-Trump extremists had declined to run for re-election rather than face certain defeat at the hands of Republican voters, Hutchinson said she didn’t think Kinzinger or Cheney would take that approach because “Their egos are too [f——] big.”

She mocked their self-conception as “The REPUBLICAN MARTYRS.”

“I think Liz being the ‘future of the GOP’ is a massive stretch,” Hutchinson wrote in one string of messages just two months before her appearance. “I think she does have the power to cement the anti-Trump, RINO movement and really capitalize off it on a national scale. She’ll never ever turn the tides in her favor. Ever.”

“Even if Trump were to fall off the face of the Earth, her neocon policies are not where the base’s ideological politics currently are nor will head,” she wrote. Still, she conceded that Cheney’s hatred of Trump had tremendous sway thanks to corporate media’s amplification and assistance. “But I do think this maneuver is by consequence ‘future-shifting’ for the GOP in that she does have the power of the media, the determination, and the cut-throat mentality to capitalize off this.”

Meanwhile, Cheney is on pace to pay a huge political price for turning on Trump: She is down by double digits to Trump-backed Harriet Hageman, who is challenging Cheney next month in a GOP primary in Wyoming.
