Eric Herschmann, a former Trump White House attorney, claims he wrote the handwritten note Cassidy Hutchinson took responsibility for in her testimony to the Jan. 6 Committee.

Hutchinson testified that it was, in fact, her handwriting, but following the hearing, Herschmann's team disputed those assertions.

A spokesperson for Herschmann told ABC News on Tuesday evening that, "The handwritten note that Cassidy Hutchinson testified was written by her was in fact written by Eric Herschmann on January 6, 2021."

They added that, "All sources with direct knowledge and law enforcement have and will confirm that it was written by Mr. Herschmann."

In response to the allegations that Hutchinson had lied, the Jan. 6 Committee released a statement of their own.

"The committee has done its diligence on this and found Ms. Hutchinson's account of this matter credible," a spokesperson said. "While we understand that she and Mr. Herschmann may have differing recollections of who wrote the note, what's ultimately important is that both White House officials believed that the President should have immediately instructed his supporters to leave the Capitol building."

"The note memorialized this, but Mr. Trump did not take that action at the time."

During the hearing on Tuesday, Rep. Liz Cheney held up the handwritten note, and asked Hutchinson if it was hers.

"That's a note that I wrote at the direction of the chief of staff on Jan. 6, likely around 3:00," Hutchinson responded, adding that it was her handwriting when pressed on the fact that it was written on the chief of staff note card.

Hutchinson did not entirely exclude Herschmann from her story, claiming that he suggested an amending the note.

A former top aide to Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, Hutchinson said her boss handed her a note card and pen on January 6, and asked her to transcribe a statement for Trump to release as the Capitol riot took place.

Herschmann, for his part, has testified to the Jan. 6 Committee on numerous occasions.

Herschmann's statement followed the news earlier Tuesday night that two Secret Service agents are reportedly willing to testify that then-President Trump did not lunge at a steering wheel or assault them in an attempt to go to the Capitol during the riot on January 6, 2021 as Hutchingson claimed in her testimony.
