Rudy Giuliani Considering ‘Going After’ Hutchinson Over Grope Claims

Rudy Giuliani has denied claims that he groped Cassidy Hutchinson on January 6, 2021, in her upcoming book Enough, which is being published by Simon & Schuster later in September. Hutchinson, formerly an assistant to Donald Trump’s Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, shot to prominence in 2022 when she gave explosive evidence to the House committee investigating the storming of Congress by hundreds of Trump supporters on January 6, 2021.

She claimed Trump opposed efforts to check his supporters weren’t armed before the rally and later grabbed the steering wheel in a moving vehicle after his security detail refused to drive him to the Capitol. Trump has strongly denied both claims, branding Hutchinson a “total phony” and the allegation he tried to seize the steering wheel “ridiculous.” In her book, extracts of which were published by The Guardian, Hutchinson claimed she was accosted by Giuliani on January 6, 2021, inside a tent that was serving as Trump’s de facto command center.

She wrote: “Rudy wraps one arm around my body, closing the space that was separating us. I feel his stack of documents press into the small of my back. I lower my eyes and watch his free hand reach for the hem of my blazer.” During his Newsmax appearance, Giuliani refuted this version of events, describing it as “completely, absolutely false.” He continued, “She claims that I groped her in a tent on January 6 where all the people went in that were very, very cold as a result of the president’s speech, etc. I’m going to grope somebody at all?”

He added that he had extra security and his entire staff around him virtually all day as he took 10 people to the speech as kind of a reward for all the work they did. Giuliani later claimed he had “plenty of witnesses to this one” and was “thinking about going after her and the publication.” Newsweek has reached out to Hutchinson via her publisher Simon and Schuster, along with Giuliani through the website of his Common Sense podcast.
