The Secret Service has been gossip about Trump’s SUV outbreak for a year: CNN

Days after the Secret Service pushed back startling testimony that former President Donald Trump violently freaked out during a ride in the president’s SUV Jan. 6, CNN reported Friday that reports of Trump’s attacks on his Secret Service agents have been disseminated throughout the agency in the past year.

According to two Secret Service sources, stories similar to those told to ex-Trump aide Cassidy Hutchinson under oath by Tony Ornato, a former Trump aide and current Intelligence official, circulated in the months following the incident. For example, one source reported that Trump profanely requested to be driven to the Capitol and even “fell forward” at one point.

“It was unclear from the conversations I had that he actually made physical contact, but he may have. I don’t know,” the source told CNN. “Nobody said Trump attacked them; They said he tried to throw himself over the seat – for what reason, nobody had any idea.”

Another source who spoke to the driver of the SUV, meanwhile, said that while he didn’t hear about a physical altercation, he told him that Trump verbally abused his Secret Service detail after his Jan. 6 speech. According to Hutchinson, Trump yelled at his troops, “I’m the damn President. Take me to the Capitol now!”

While he doesn’t deny that Trump asked agents to take him to the Capitol, a Secret Service official said earlier this week that Ornato denied telling Hutchinson the story and Secret Service agent Bobby Engel – who was in the vehicle – refuted it that Trump jumped on an agent or tried to grab the steering wheel.

The agency has also said that Engel and the driver are ready to testify under oath before the House Committee on Jan. 6. However, Engel and Ornato’s credibility has recently been questioned as they have been called Trump’s “yes men” and at least one former Trump adviser has called Ornato a known liar.
