Former US President Donald Trump has harshly attacked the former White House staffer who testified against him before the investigative committee into the Capitol attack. The woman is “crazy” and lives in a “fantasy world,” Trump said in an interview broadcast on Thursday (local time) by the right-wing populist TV channel Newsmax.

“She has serious problems, I will put it that way, mental problems.” 26-year-old Cassidy Hutchinson caused a stir on Tuesday with an impressive statement to the panel.

Donald Trump accuses the witness of only having second-hand information

According to Hutchinson, Trump was said to have been aware of possible violence on January 6, 2021. He knew the demonstrators were armed. She described various scenes that she said she had experienced in the Weisses Hausen and recited conversations that she said she had heard herself.

Republicans and Trump, on the other hand, accuse her of only having second-hand information. Trump repeatedly emphasized that he hardly knew Hutchinson. This worked as an assistant in the White House for his Vice, Mark Meadows.

Above all, Trump focused on part of the statement that Hutchinson actually only described with reference to a conversation with a colleague and the responsible Secret Service official. Accordingly, Trump is said to have tried on January 6, 2021 in his armored SUV to grab the driver’s steering wheel. Trump denies that.

Several media outlets, citing unnamed sources, reported that the two responsible Secret Service officials would also deny the allegation. However, neither of them has commented publicly on this.
