Former Trump White House adviser Cassidy Hutchinson recalled the moment her Donald Trump-supporting father rejected her request this week to help hire a lawyer not associated with Trump after she had been subpoenaed to appear before the House committee investigating the January 6, 2021 insurrection.
In the clip, Hutchinson recalled her father throwing the congressional subpoena in the trash, telling her she didn’t have to comply and claiming the investigation was just a “witch hunt” against Trump.
According to the clip, Hutchinson’s father then said he “prayed that I wasn’t there asking for money to pay a corrupt lawyer” and said he “would have raised myself better than to turn my back on the people who are.” “Took care of me, people like him and Donald.”
“’You didn’t raise me at all’ was all I could think of,” the audio recording ended with Hutchinson saying.
Hutchinson, who served as an adviser to then-Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, said it was “difficult” to write the scene, but she felt it was “important to explain how I got to where I was when I did one.” Trump partner had an attorney or Trump-affiliated attorney, and then when I finally separated and found a new attorney, a new attorney.”
