Former Trump White House aide Cassidy Hutchinson is accusing Rudy Giuliani of groping her before the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol riot, according to her new memoir. 

Hutchinson, who became a star witness for the Democrat-led Jan. 6 committee after serving as an aide to Trump White House chief of staff Mark Meadows, wrote that the incident occurred backstage during the "Stop the Steal" rally the day of the riot. 

Hutchinson wrote that she found Giuliani standing in the back of a tent with others, such as Trump attorney John Eastman, according to an excerpt from her memoir published by The Guardian on Wednesday.

Hutchinson wrote:

"The corners of his mouth split into a Cheshire cat smile. Waving a stack of documents, he moves towards me, like a wolf closing in on its prey.

"'We have the evidence. It’s all here. We’re going to pull this off.' 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.

"'By the way,' he says, fingering the fabric, ‘I’m loving this leather jacket on you.’ His hand slips under my blazer, then my skirt."

Giuliani is already facing a $10 million lawsuit for alleged sexual assault involving one of his former employees.

Ted Goodman, a political advisor to the former New York mayor issued the following statement to Just the News:

"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 11th."
