NEW YORK, July 13—Today Simon & Schuster announced that it is publishing ENOUGH by Cassidy Hutchinson on September 26, 2023. A former special assistant to President Trump and his Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, Cassidy Hutchinson sat at a desk that was mere steps from the most controversial president in recent American history.
With ENOUGH, she provides a riveting account of her extraordinary experiences as an idealistic young woman thrust into the middle of a national crisis, where, in a televised hearing of the January 6th Committee, she risked everything to tell the truth about some of the most powerful people in Washington and some of the most consequential events in recent American history.
Ever since a childhood visit to Washington, DC, Cassidy Hutchinson aspired to serve her country in government. Raised in a working-class family with a military background, she was the first in her immediate family to graduate from college. Despite having no ties to Washington, Hutchinson was able to land a vital position at the center of the Trump White House.
Her life took a dramatic turn on January 6, 2021, when, at twenty-four, she found herself in the middle of one of the most extraordinary and unprecedented calamities in modern political history.
Hutchinson was faced with a choice between loyalty to the Trump administration or loyalty to the country and the Constitution by revealing what she saw and heard in the attempt to overthrow a democratic election. She bravely came forward to become the pivotal witness in the House January 6 investigations, as her testimony transfixed and stunned the nation. In her memoir, Hutchinson reveals the struggle between the pressures she confronted to toe the party line and the demands of the oath she swore to defend American democracy.
ENOUGH reaches far beyond the typical insider political account. It is the saga of a woman whose fierce determination helped her overcome difficult childhood challenges to get her dream job. It is a very personal memoir by an extraordinary hero. When confronted with a crisis of conscience—that more senior White House aides tried to evade—she rose to the occasion, and in the process, found her voice and her true self. This is a portrait of how the courage of one person can change the course of history.
“[Cassidy Hutchinson’s] superiors—men many years older—a number of them are hiding behind executive privilege, anonymity, and intimidation. But her bravery and patriotism . . . were awesome to behold. Little girls all across this great nation are seeing what it really means to love this country and what it really means to be a patriot.”—Liz Cheney, former US Representative
“Here [Cassidy Hutchinson] was, all by herself, twenty-five years old, in front of the whole country. In the scheme of things, she’s nobody. And yet such people can upend empires. She showed a lot more guts than the men of that White House.”—Peggy Noonan, The Wall Street Journal
“Hutchinson was the perfect witness to testify to the dereliction of duty she observed in the final days of the Trump White House, a Trump believer turned reluctant informant. She was John Dean in a white blazer and diamond necklace, reciting a similarly damning cavalcade of facts. . . . An American heroine.”
—Ruth Marcus, The Washington Post
“In this age of political cowardice and self-dealing, it can be easy to forget that public service is supposed to be a noble calling. . . . Cassidy Hutchinson reminded us what that looks like.”—Michelle Cottle, The New York Times
