New information about Donald Trump’s movements on the day of January 6 is coming to light. In his limo, known as ‘The Beast’ with Secret Service Agent Bobby Engel after addressing the audience at the rally held outside the White House on January 6, the president at the time, Donald Trump was hoping to make an appearance at the Capitol that day as well.
However, when his secret service agent didn’t let that happen, a White House aid said Trump reportedly lost his cool. While explaining the events that took place that day, a top White House aide for Mark Meadows, Cassidy Hutchinson’s testified what she learned that day from another top aide.
Watch White House Aide Cassidy Hutchinson’s testimony about Donald Trump below:
“So once the President had gotten into the vehicle with Bobby, he thought that they were going up to the Capitol, and when Bobby had relayed to him, we’re not you don’t have the assets to do it,” Trump reportedly insisted, Hutchinson’s testified on June 28.
Engel told Trump, ”‘It’s not secure. We’re going back to the West Wing,’” and Trump had “a very strong, very angry response to that. Tony described him as being irate.”
The “Tony” Hutchinson referred to in her testimony was fellow White House aide Tony Ornato. “Trump said something like, ′I’m the effing president, take me up to the Capitol now,′” she testified.

But when Engel refused again, Hutchinson alleged that Trump got physical with him. She continued by saying Trump “reached up towards the front of the vehicle to grab at the steering wheel. Mr. Engel grabbed his arm, and said, ‘Sir, you need to take your hand off the steering wheel. We’re going back to the West Wing.’”
That’s when Trump reportedly used his free hand to lunge toward Bobby Engel,” Hutchinson added. Hutchinson further testified that she saw Engel with her own eyes shortly after his scuffle with the former president took place.
Hutchinson said he was at the White House sitting and looking “somewhat discombobulated” and “lost.” When asked by the committee if Engel ever said the story she was told was untrue, Hutchinson said Engel never said it was untrue.
This is just one of the shocking testimonies made during the January 6th Committee’s investigations of the January 6th attack on the United States Capitol so far. The investigation continues.
