think the committee would not have already corroborated this with him?

I hope the committee did their homework and got collaborations to the incident.

Let them come and testify under oath.

Remember, Hutchinson said this is what she was *told*, not that she saw it.

Here's the best I've seen so far as far as sourcing....





Again, these are anonymous sources.



Lastly..... Who gives a fuck if the person who told her exaggerated? It's my understanding they have already deposed Ornata and Engel, so let's see what they said under oath

Then they better raise their right hand and testify under oath also like she did.

She never said she saw it, she didn’t even say Engle told her this happened to him, she said Ornato told her this story.

according to her testimony and, when asked, stated Engle did not dispute the description by Ornato then or after.

And came across as very credible and honest.

Engle might have been playing sudoku or surfing pornhub and not paying attention, or he may have been nodding along to every word- the point is people keep repeating this story as if either she said she was there or she said Engle told her and neither is true.

my point was to say Engle didn't dispute what was being said, not then and not later despite what some anonymous 'source' is saying now.

That I was surprised that anyone would be able to get from the passenger compartment to the driver compartment in the Beast. I'm thinking these latest reports are true and it never happened. I'm sure he got mad and huffed and puffed when told he was going home and not to the Capitol, but I doubt he got physical.

It did not happen in “the beast”, they we’re using an SUV that day, and one can easily reach from the back to the front seats.

because it didn't happen in the Beast.

But it was Oranato (sp?) who said it was in the Beast, and she was just repeating what he told her. Contemporaneously, Engel was in the room and didn't object to it having happened the way it was being relayed, so there's that to overcome by Engel....

On how this works.
It's fake news, the SS agents hardly knew the Great Orange Annulus of Magat-a-LargeAss. They only got coffee for Ivanka occasionally. They're hacks and GOP political operatives. Some of them beat their wives.

Think it doesn't work? Well here we are and history says it works.
