Cassidy Hutchinson’s desk was mere steps from the most controversial president in recent American history. Now, she provides a riveting account of her extraordinary experiences as an idealistic young woman thrust into the middle of a national crisis, where she risked everything to tell the truth about some of the most powerful people in Washington.
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 landed a vital position at the center of the Trump White House.
Her life took a dramatic turn on January 6th, 2021, when, at twenty-four, she found herself in 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 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’s the saga of a woman whose fierce determination helped her overcome childhood challenges to get her dream job, only to face a crisis of conscience—one that more senior White House aides tried to evade—and, in the process, find her voice and herself. This is a portrait of how the courage of one person can change the course of history.

PRAISE FOR CASSIDY HUTCHINSON
“[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
“Few outside of Trump world had ever heard of Cassidy Hutchinson. But few who witnessed the young woman’s extraordinary two hours before the House select committee on January 6th will ever forget her.” —DANA MILBANK, The Washington Post
“Courage can be inspirational, even across generations. Hutchinson realized that, like [Alexander] Butterfield, she had to tell the whole truth.” —Salon
“Despite pressure, intimidation, and right-wing media attacks, Hutchinson stepped forward to do her duty and testify under oath. . . . She was the perfect witness—not prone to exaggeration or self-congratulation. Her vivid recollections, punctuated by memorable details such as her catatonic boss staring at his phone on his couch, provided a gripping account of the coup that Donald Trump and his senior officials attempted.” —JENNIFER RUBIN, The Washington Post
