Tony Bobulinski Sues J6 Show Trial Star Cassidy Hutchinson For Defamation

Biden family whistleblower Tony Bobulinski sued for defamation Democrats’ star witness in the Jan. 6 Committee’s show trials.


Biden family whistleblower Tony Bobulinski sued for defamation Democrats’ star witness in the Jan. 6 Committee’s show trials.

Cassidy Hutchinson, a former aide to Donald Trump White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, famously testified two years ago that President Trump tried to violently hijack a security limousine and drive himself to the Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021. The sources she cited at the hearing almost immediately went on record to contradict her sworn testimony. Legacy networks NBCCBS, and CNN reported Hutchinson’s sources were prepared to go under oath to testify that her claims were false.

Now Hutchinson is being sued for “malicious conduct” by Bobulinski. He claims the former White House aide fabricated details about meetings between him and Meadows in her memoir released last September, “Enough.” Hutchinson, the lawsuit reads, “cashed in on her brief proximity to President Trump to become the ‘star’ witness of, and in collaboration with, the January 6th Committee and profited from politically left-wing business ventures.”

“In one of her business ventures, Defendant released a book in which she defamed Mr. Bobulinski and painted him in a false light,” the lawsuit continues. “Defendant did so, in part, by lying about a meeting between Mr. Bobulinski and Mark Meadows, dishonestly portraying it to be unethical and, possibly, illegal.”

The lawsuit specifically highlighted the dramatic excerpt from the book:

In the shadows of the bleachers, I observed Mark and Tony Bobulinski’s interaction through a gap in the vehicles. When they said their goodbyes, I saw Mark hand Tony what appeared to be a folded sheet of paper or a small envelope. Mark walked toward me, staring at the ground. He was silent for several moments as we made out way back to the staff holding area.

‘You and I, we have seen a lot together, done a lot together,’ Mark said, his head still tilted toward the ground. I cleared my throat. ‘Yes, Mark. We have.’ He abruptly stopped walking and stuck his arm out to stop me. Our eyes locked.

‘Oh, don’t look so frightened.’ He dropped his arm. ‘I just want to thank you for working so hard. It’s quite difficult to find someone as loyal as you.’ He flashed a smile, the kind of smile that doesn’t change the shape of your eyes. He disappeared around the corner, his Secret Service agents trailing him.

Hutchinson’s claims became the subject of a news story in CNN and a target line of questioning in House lawmakers’ February interview with Bobulinski.

“[Meadows] didn’t hand me a single thing,” Bobulinski testified under oath before the House Oversight and Judiciary Committees.

Hutchinson’s History of Hyperbole

When Hutchinson testified before the Jan. 6 Committee in 2022 that Trump had tried to commit grand theft auto, she said she was “disgusted” by the Capitol riot to the point where she “still struggle[s] to work through the emotions.”

“We were watching the Capitol building get defaced over a lie, and it was something that was really hard in that moment to digest,” Hutchinson said.

Hutchinson, however, continued to work for Trump nine weeks after the president left office. Personal text messages published by The Federalist also show Hutchinson commiserated with colleagues following the riot. She texted she “would rather shoot myself dead into the Potomac than see marine one flying around this city without 45 again.”

The text messages revealed Hutchinson trashing former Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney and joking about herself being an “insurrectionist” to make light of the riot she told lawmakers left her “disgusted.”

“A real conversation that just took place,” Hutchinson began one exchange:

Person on sidewalk: your sweatshirt says 45.

Me: yes

Person: like, Trump?

Me: yes

Person: stares

Me: I’m an insurrectionist.

And then I put my headphones in. The end.

Cheney went on to lionize Hutchinson as a feminist icon in her political memoir, “Oath and Honor: A Memoir and a Warning.”

Cassidy Hutchinson had shown more courage and patriotism than White House officials in positions senior to hers, with many many more years of experience. As we expected, her willingness to tell the truth made her the target of intense attacks in the media from Donald Trump and his supporters. I wondered whether the onslaught would have been as fierce had she been a man. I suspect not.

Hutchinson has been caught peddling other falsehoods in “Enough.” In the book, Hutchinson claimed Meadows gave copies of classified documents to Federalist Editor-in-Chief Mollie Hemingway.

“It’s a straight-up lie and it never happened,” Hemingway wrote on X.
