(WASHINGTON (77WABC) — Reports say the January 6 committee didn’t reach out to the U.S. Secret Service before its Tuesday hearing regarding an allegation involving former President Donald Trump, according to an agency spokesperson.

Cassidy Hutchinson testified that Trump lunged at one of the agents and tried to grab the steering wheel of a presidential vehicle, demanding he be taken back to the U.S. Capitol during the January 6 riot. Secret Service spokesperson Anthony Gugliemi confirmed to Fox News Wednesday that the committee did not contact it in the days ahead of the hearing.

Hutchinson, a former Aide to White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, testified Tuesday that Tony Ornato — the former Deputy Chief of Staff for Operations — told her about the incident involving Trump. It was also previously reported that both men are willing to testify under oath that Hutchinson’s story about Trump is not true.
