Newly obtained Secret Service messages showed former President Donald Trump was "pissed" that the Supreme Court didn't hear his 2020 election lawsuit.

KINZINGER: “The obtained Secret Service message from that day shows how angry President Trump was about the outcome. Quote, “Just FYI POTUS is pissed, breaking news, Supreme Court, denied his lawsuit. He is livid now.” Cassidy Hutchinson, an aide to Chief of Staff Mark Meadows was present for that conversation and described it this way.”

HUTCHINSON: “This is the date the Supreme Court had rejected that case. Mr. Meadows and I were in the White House Residence at a Christmas reception and as we were walking back from the Christmas reception that evening the President was walking out of the Oval Office so we crossed paths in the Rose Garden Colonnade. The President was fired up about the Supreme Court decision and so I was standing next to Meadow, Mr. Meadows, but I stepped back so I was probably two, three feet catty-corner from a diagonal from him. The President just raging about the decision and how it's wrong and why didn't we make more calls and just his typical anger outburst at this decision. And the President said, so he said something to the effect of, “I don't want people to know we lost Mark, this is embarrassing, figure it out, we need to figure it out, I don't want people to know that we lost.””
