Anyone posting a threat against a law enforcement officer or politician will be banned
Sunday you had the former federal prosecutor and Homeland Director Jeh Johnson on Meet the Press blowing this joke hearing out of the water. Even the Meet the Press moderator said that the information put forward was third hand. I repeat. Third hand.
Johnson was referring to former White House aide Cassidy Hutchinson’s testimony, in which she recounted a story alleging that Trump had tried to grab the steering wheel of the SUV he was in and lunged at a Secret Service agent in an attempt to join his supporters at the Capitol on January 6, 2021.
Johnson said of the story: “It was colorful, it was vivid, it was collateral to the central charge…and it was secondhand hearsay.”
“Meet the Press” host Chuck Todd added that Hutchinson’s retelling of the story was actually a “third-hand account.
” “I think by the time she told us the story was technically, we’re in our third version. It’s a third-hand account,” he said.
“It depends on how you interpret hearsay. But, you know, that testimony would not have been admissible in a courtroom,” Johnson added.
