Jan. 6th Hearing, Senator Casey Calls Hutchinson ‘Courageous’

‘Courageous’ Hearing from Cassidy Hutchinson

POINT TOWNSHIP, NORTHUMBERLAND COUNTY – During his visit to the Valley for the grand opening of the CSVT project, U.S. Senator Bob Casey (D-PA) talked to WKOK about some  key issues in Washington DC.

Senator Casey reacted to the testimony of Cassidy Hutchinson, a former top aide to former President Donald Trump’s White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows.

Casey called Hutchinson’s testimony ‘courageous,’ “To go under oath to give testimony about a place you worked and about issues that are being debated, its extraordinarily difficult, especially someone who’s her age. It raises questions about the activities of federal officials, including the president, in a manner we haven’t seen until this point in time.”

Hutchinson testified to the January 6 Committee Tuesday, describing a chaotic scene leading up to the riot, including former President Trump trying to get to the U.S. Capitol when he lunged at a secret service agent in his limo. She also testified the former president knew there were guns on the property and still encouraged people to go to the capitol.

In the end, Casey says these hearings go beyond what the Department of Justice ultimately decides, “I think its important that the record is clear about what happened on January the 6, why it happened, and how we have to take steps to make sure it never happens again.”

Casey says he’s been told the January 6 Committee still has a lot more work to do before these hearings end.
