IN THE BELLY OF THE BEAST; OR, LET MY PEOPLE GO ATTACK THE CAPITOL
On January 6, 2021 Donald Trump, after having exhorted his supporters at his Washington D.C. rally to march to the Capitol and fight like hell,
When informed by the head of his Secret Service detail that this not doable and that he is being taken back to the White House, Trump flies into and angry rant and shouts, "I’m the f***ing president, take me up to the Capitol now!"
When he is once again denied what he wants, Donald Trump reaches into the front seat and tries to grab the steering wheel. When his Secret Service Agent takes hold of Trump's arm and tells him that he needs to take his hand off the steering wheel, Trump lunges at the agent and grabs the man by the throat.
She said that it was well-known by Donald Trump and his staff that there was danger brewing days before January 6. She'd heard it from her boss, Mark Meadows, who warned her that “things might get real, real, bad on January 6.” Rudy Giuliani told her that January 6 was "going to be great."
And, according to Ms. Hutchinson's sworn testimony, Donald Trump himself knew on the morning of January 6 that the crowd that came to see him was armed and primed for physical violence.
Ms. Hutchinson was among the Presidential entourage waiting in the tent behind the stage before the rally. Donald Trump was furious that much of the crowd was lingering on the National Mall rather than inside the secure perimeter around the Ellipse where he would be speaking. Trump wanted the area around him filled with supporters.
However many of his supporters didn't want to enter the secure area because they had to pass through a security check that included metal detectors called magnetometers, or mags, where weapons were being confiscated: secret service agents were finding knives, guns, pepper spray, bear spray, brass knuckles, baseball bats, and every sort of thing that could be used for a weapon among those at the rally.
Enraged by the poor optics of the sparsity of people around the Ellipse, Trump cried, “I don’t f***ing care that they have weapons! They’re not here to hurt me! Let my people in! They can march to the Capitol from here! Let the people in! Take the f***ing mags away!”
Ms. Hutchinson gave vivid descriptions of the other things she saw when she was a part of Donald Trump's staff. She told of helping clean ketchup off the wall of the Oval Office dining room when, in a beastly rage over Attorney General Bill Barr's refusal to proclaim that the 2020 election was fraudulent, Trump threw his lunch against the wall. According Hutchinson, Donald Trump angrily throwing his lunch or pulling up the table cloth so that the dishes crashed to the floor wasn't an unusual occurrence.
But it was on January 6, 2021 that Cassidy Hutchinson witnessed, along with the rest of the nation, that this man who was President of the United States had the heart of a brutal tyrant who in his uncontrollable, all-consuming anger, thought no more of destroying our democracy than of smashing a dish against a wall.
Donald Trump knew that on January 6 an armed, psyched-up battalion of his personal troops were set to invade the Capitol building,
