( – On Monday, The New York Times put out a report that questioned then-President Donald Trump’s actions following his Jan. 6 speech at the Ellipse which had occurred only moments before his supporters had stormed the U.S. Capitol. 

The moments in question relate to Trump’s actions once inside his armored vehicle after the speech. According to new transcripts from the day inside the presidential limousine, some of the details that a White House aide had provided during the House Jan. 6 committee investigation could be called into question. 

Cassidy Hutchinson, former aide to Trump administration chief of staff Mark Meadows, had argued that senior Secret Service official Anthony Ornato had informed her that the former President had attempted to grab the vehicle’s steering wheel. However, the driver has contested this idea arguing that Trump had not lunged for the wheel and that he had not become physical with any of the agents. 

The driver recounted how the President had insisted on going to the Capitol, and that he had not been screaming at either him or lead agent Mr. Robert Engel. He added that throughout the incident Trump’s voice was raised but that it did not appear to him like Trump was “irritated or agitated” in the way that he had been as he had headed to the Ellipse for his speech. 

The driver had also told House panel investigators that he had not witnessed Trump trying to lunge for the wheel and that this was not something he had witnessed.
