Former Trump White House Attorney Eric Herschmann already told the committee he wrote the note in question.
Former Trump White House Attorney Eric Herschmann claims he wrote the former president’s statement on a notecard not the January 6 “star” witness Cassidy Hutchinson.
Hutchinson told the committee the notecard had her handwriting. She also said that her former boss, COS Mark Meadows, handed her the notecard and pen. She wrote down what he supposedly said was a statement by Trump about the riot.
Herschmann already told the committee he wrote the note:
“The handwritten note that Cassidy Hutchinson testified was written by her was in fact written by Eric Herschmann on January 6, 2021,” a spokesperson for Herschmann told ABC News Tuesday evening.
“All sources with direct knowledge and law enforcement have and will confirm that it was written by Mr. Herschmann,” the spokesperson said.

The committee is sticking with Hutchinson’s testimony despite the notecard being the latest portion going down in flames:
In response to Herschmann’s claim, a spokesperson for the Jan. 6 committee said, “The committee has done its diligence on this and found Ms. Hutchinson’s account of this matter credible. While we understand that she and Mr. Herschmann may have differing recollections of who wrote the note, what’s ultimately important is that both White House officials believed that the President should have immediately instructed his supporters to leave the Capitol building.”
“The note memorialized this,” the committee spokesperson said. “But Mr. Trump did not take that action at the time.”
At least two Secret Service agents immediately contradicted Hutchinson’s testimony about the Trump lunging for the steering wheel. A video even shows Trump was in an SUV, not The Beast.DONATE
