Trump attacked Secret Service agent in attempt to reach US Capitol on January 6: Former aide

Washington, June 29 (UNI) Former White House aide Cassidy Hutchinson said in her testimony that former President Donald Trump lunged at a Secret Service agent and grabbed his throat after being told he would not be driven to the US Capitol building on January 6, Khaleej Times reported on Wednesday.
Cassidy made this disclosure during her testimony before the January 6 investigations committee in which she said that "the president had a very strong, very angry response" when the head of Trump's Secret Service detail, Bobby Engel, refused to drive him to the Capitol after his speech on the Ellipse that day.
"I'm the f-n President. Take me up to the Capitol now," Trump said, according to Hutchinson's testimony.
