In a September 2022 interview with the House January 6th Select Committee, former Trump White House assistant Cassidy Hutchinson told investigators that shitweasel MAGA lawyer Stefan Passantino (very douchey sounding name too) told her specifically not to talk about the infamous episode in which the Orange God Emperor allegedly tried to grab the steering wheel of his SUV when Secret Service agents told him they weren’t driving him to the Capitol.
“I told Stefan that day about the incident that happened in the Beast, which I should refer to it as the Presidential limo, because that was one. And I remember saying to Stefan, ‘Tony Ornato and I were very close at the White House. Tony told me this incident happened.’ And I didn’t go into extremely graphic detail telling Stefan about it. I tried to kind of make it more casual than my conversation with Tony really was, but I think I said something to I said something to Stefan like, ‘Yeah, I had this conversation with Tony Ornato when we got back from the rally that day, and he told me that the President tried to wrap his hands around Bobby’s neck and strangle him because he wouldn’t take him to the Capitol.’ And Stefan said, ‘No, no, no, no, no.’ I remember he, like, sat back in his chair, and he’s like, ‘No, no, no. We don’t want to go there. We don’t want to talk about that,'” Hutchinson told the committee according to the transcript, which annoyingly has not been OCR’d into copyable text.
The interview of course was after Hutchinson famously revealed the fat fuck’s post-Ellipse rally meltdown in her testimony in June 2022. This follow-up interview was focused on Passantino’s attempts to tamper with her testimony earlier this year, which we’re going to go ahead and guess is a disbarment-level offense if not also a crime. Passantino seems to think so too as he reportedly took a leave of absence from his firm on Wednesday, a day after his tampering was first reported.
