Like an Old REO Speedwagon Song

Heard it from a friend who
Heard it from a friend who
Heard it from another . . .

The “bombshell” surprise witness for Tuesday’s J6 show trial turned out to be a girl who was just barely out of college and working as an aide to White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows at the time of the events about which she testified. Cassidy Hutchinson claimed to have “heard it from a friend,” etc., that President Trump was so completely out of control during the Capitol riot that he attacked a Secret Service agent and attempted to grab the steering wheel from the driver of the limousine, insisting that they drive him to the Capitol instead of the White House.

Nobody on the J6 Committee asked Secret Service to corroborate Hutchinson’s account. In fact, there is zero corroboration of her tale. Which is not to say that it has been proven false, exactly, and I suppose it is within the realm of possibility that (a) Hutchinson’s testimony will eventually be corroborated and (b) monkeys will fly out of my butt.

But I know the neighborhood
And talk is cheaper when the story is good
And the tales grow taller on down the line.

Like the song said.
