Former President Donald Trump made headlines on Wednesday by acknowledging that he expressed a desire to visit the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021, presenting a different perspective on an event that has become a contentious detail in the testimony of a former White House aide before the House committee investigating the attack.

Speaking at a campaign rally in Waukesha, Wisconsin, Trump criticized the testimony of Cassidy Hutchinson, a former top aide to ex-White House chief of staff Mark Meadows, who played a key role in closely watched committee hearings in 2022.

Referring to Hutchinson’s testimony about an alleged altercation with a Secret Service agent, Trump denied the accusations, stating, “It’s not my deal. I’m a lover, not a fighter.”

Hutchinson had testified that Trump attempted to grab the steering wheel of an armored SUV and lunged toward his security detail when he was informed that he would not be taken to the Capitol, where a mob of his supporters had gathered.

Trump provided a different version of events, explaining that he expressed a desire to visit the Capitol upon seeing many people walking in that direction. However, he stated that when advised against it by Secret Service personnel, he acquiesced, saying, “Well, I’d like to. … Whatever you guys think.”

Following Hutchinson’s testimony, Trump disparaged her on Truth Social, claiming he hardly knew her and casting doubt on her credibility. Hutchinson’s account faced scrutiny after sources indicated that witnesses could testify under oath that the incident did not occur as described.

The Republican-led House panel investigating the events of January 6 released a report in March, accusing the committee of downplaying testimony from witnesses who did not corroborate Hutchinson’s account.

This revelation adds further complexity to the ongoing scrutiny surrounding the events of January 6, highlighting the divergent narratives and interpretations surrounding that tumultuous day.
