1/6 Committee member Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) said that Cassidy Hutchinson has inspired new witnesses to come forward.
CNN’s Dana Bash asked Kinzinger, “Congressman, since Cassidy Hutchinson’s testimony, have new witnesses come forward to want to speak up?”
Rep. Kinzinger answered, “Yes. Again, I don’t want to get into who or any of those details, but — and it’s not even just Cassidy. By the way, she’s been inspiring for a lot of people. This happens every day. Every day we get new people that come forward and say, hey, I didn’t think maybe this piece of a story I knew was important, but now that you guys are — I do see this plays in here. But, yeah, I mean, look, she is going to go down in history as — mean, people can forget the names of every one of us on the committee. They will not forget her name. She doesn’t want that. She doesn’t want to be out in the public spotlight but she has a commitment to truth that someone like Kristi Noem and most people in our party would benefit to take an ounce of.”
New witnesses coming forward to add detail or confirm the testimony of others was the last thing that Trump and the Republican Party wanted. Trump and his allies have been tampering with and intimidating witnesses, but people continue to come forward to tell the Committee what they saw and heard.
Trump has already been immensely damaged by the 1/6 Committee investigation, and it is possible that the worst is yet to come.
