A former aide to Donald Trump who later became a Jan. 6 witness says in a new book that she was groped by Rudy Giuliani, saying he was like a “wolf closing in on its prey” as the Jan. 6 Capitol riot was unfolding, The Guardian reported.
Cassidy Hutchinson claims Giuliani put his hand “under my blazer, then my skirt.”
“I feel his frozen fingers trail up my thigh,” she writes. “He tilts his chin up. The whites of his eyes look jaundiced. My eyes dart to [Trump adviser] John Eastman, who flashes a leering grin.
“I fight against the tension in my muscles and recoil from Rudy’s grip … filled with rage, I storm through the tent, on yet another quest for Mark.”
From The Guardian:
A spokesperson for Giuliani did not respond to a Guardian request for comment about Hutchinson’s description of her interaction with the former mayor.
In a statement to reporters after the Guardian story was published, a Giuliani spokesperson and political adviser, Ted Goodman, said: “It’s fair to ask Cassidy Hutchinson why she is just now coming out with these allegations from two and a half years ago, as part of the marketing campaign for her upcoming book release.
“This is a disgusting lie against Mayor Rudy Giuliani – a man whose distinguished career in public service includes taking down the mafia, cleaning up New York City and comforting the nation following September 11.”
