Inside Cassidy Hutchinson's Family: Her Dad Is A Trump Supporter Who Rejected To Help Her While Aunt And Uncle Are 'QAnon Fans'
In a recent revelation, former Trump White House aide Cassidy Hutchinson shared a poignant moment from her experience. She described the heart-wrenching instance when her father, a staunch Donald Trump supporter, declined her request for assistance in securing legal representation unassociated with Trump.
This happened after she received a subpoena to appear before the House committee investigating the January 6, 2021, insurrection. Indeed, she has a family more complicated than it might seem, with a Trump-devoted dad alongside QAnon's aunt and uncle. Here might be everything you need to know about her family.
Cassidy Hutchinson's Dad Is A Trump Supporter And Doesn't Have A Great Relationship With His Daughter
According to Meaww, little is known about the relationship between Cassidy Hutchinson's birth parents, Richard and Angela Hutchinson. They are currently divorced and have not been seen together since their daughter testified against former President Donald Trump in 2022.
Cassidy has publicly discussed her father, Richard Jeffery Hutchinson, as a staunch Trump supporter, with whom she had a limited relationship:
"I don’t have a relationship with my biological father, but I went to his house one night. I drove up to New Jersey, and I went to his house one night and begged him," Cassidy explained. "And I remember saying to him, ‘You have no idea what they’re going to do to me if I have to get an attorney with Trump world,’ because he’s a very big Trump supporter, as is his own right ... it’s not me being critical. It’s just a fact."
UPDATE: With the release of her memoir, "Enough," on September 26, 2023, it's likely that her relationship with her birth father further deteriorates, as it features many explosive details of her life post-testifying, as well as many disturbing details of her time working in the White House, including an instance where she was groped by Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani.
He Yelled At His Daughter In A Heartbreaking Confrontation
On a recent episode of "The Last Word" on MSNBC, Lawrence O'Donnell featured an excerpt from Cassidy Hutchinson's new book, "Enough," in its audio version.
In the clip, Hutchinson recounted a poignant moment when her father, after receiving a congressional subpoena related to the investigation into the January 6, 2021, insurrection, callously tossed the subpoena in the trash.
He vehemently dismissed the investigation as a "witch-hunt" against Trump and advised her not to comply.
In the excerpt, Hutchinson's father expressed hope that she wouldn't approach him for money to fund what he deemed a corrupt lawyer.
He asserted that he had raised her better than to abandon those who cared for her, mentioning himself and Donald Trump. The clip concluded with Hutchinson's thoughts, as she silently reflected, "'You didn't raise me at all.'"
This emotional scene from Hutchinson's book provides insight into her journey from having Trump-affiliated legal counsel to ultimately parting ways with them and finding new legal representation.
