Democrats' Star J6 Witness Waived Attorney Privilege
House Republicans may be able to use a decision that was made all the way back in 2022 to their advantage.
It has to do with one individual who is of particular interest to both parties right now.
Democrats' star J6 witness.
Memos recently went public indicating that the House Democrats' star witness waived her attorney-client privilege with her first lawyer at the end of 2022.
That fact may be able to open the door for Republicans to question both her and her lawyer.
Former Trump White House aide Cassidy Hutchinson's testimony has been a massive part of the House Democrats' process to use January 6 against Donald Trump.
The fact that Hutchinson waived attorney-client privilege means that Republicans may be able to get behind the scenes of Hutchinson's testimony by talking to her lawyer, a man named Stefan Passantino.
Passantino is being represented by Jesse Binnal, who has already said that Passantino is willing to cooperate with Republicans.
"Mr. Passantino has been put in an awful position. But he is and has always been willing to cooperate with any effort to get at the truth," Binnal said.
Chairman Barry Loudermilk leads Republicans on the House Administration's Subcommittee on Oversight, and he thinks that this could be just the opening that Republicans need.
"Cassidy Hutchinson tried to explain her dramatic changes in testimony by blaming her initial lawyer Stefan Passantino. Our discovery of Cassidy’s errata sheet showing just how substantially her story changed, raises serious concerns about her credibility. Until now, her version of the story was the only one," Loudermilk said.
Loudermilk then explained why questioning Passantino would be so crucial to getting the REAL truth to the public:
"Now we know Stefan is no longer prohibited from speaking about his interactions with Cassidy by attorney-client privilege. We look forward to hearing the truth from Stefan about his interactions with his then-client Ms. Hutchinson, and the Select Committee," Loudermilk said.
