Hope Hicks, once a close aide and communications director for President Donald Trump, becomes on Wednesday the first member of his inner circle to testify to the congressional panel leading a probe into possible obstruction of justice by Trump.

Democrats who control the House of Representatives Judiciary Committee believe Hicks can provide important insights into troubling chapters of former Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report on Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election, and Trump’s efforts to interfere with the investigation.

“She’s our first fact witness,” said Jamie Raskin, a Democratic lawmaker on the committee. “Having somebody talking about what happened from a personal perspective will be a dramatic debut for the committee.”

Hicks, who was one of Trump’s closest aides during the 2016 campaign and the first 14 months of his presidency, was subpoenaed to testify and is due to appear at 9 a.m. (1300 GMT) on Wednesday, the committee said.

It will be a closed-door interview with lawmakers, and the committee will release a transcript afterward.

I really wish this was a public hearing, but I guess we will all have to be satisfied with the transcript. 

At least with the Dems in charge, we know it will be complete. 

I have to imagine that Trump’s Twitter fingers will be itching tonight as he worries about what Hicks might tell the committee about her time as his pants presser.

      I doubt if she will provide any information at all. That’s why she’s been “allowed” to testify. She won’t remember; she never knew; she wasn’t informed. If need be, she’ll plead the Fifth Amendment.

    The first question should be how many times she has sucked Trump’s little mushroom and if she is still doing it.

    Tonight on MSNBC’s “11th Hour” with Brian Williams, it was discussed how media savvy Trump is and how he cleverly uses television and the internet to get himself showcased on a daily basis, giving Trump the advantage as HE is the “news” and HE is the daily headlines. They also discussed that if the Democrats were smart, they would make ALL of the hearings (hopefully leading to impeachment) televised and in an open session, because seeing someone give testimony has a greater impact on the public’s perception of the truth. Like the Watergate hearings.

    Another example to back up the impact of televised hearings, is the Mueller report. Bill Barr had the advantage of releasing his televised version of the reports conclusions first. We all know that Barr was not truthful about the investigation findings, so Barr/Trump took the advantage. Mueller’s press conference also impacted the public’s opinion but it unfortunately came weeks later.

    I think the best plan of attack to get Trump impeached is to have constant and ongoing Congressional hearings in the House and let the resulting testimony become the daily headlines. Look how public opinion was changed over Watergate due to the Watergate hearings.

    The charitable interpretation is McConnell and his ilk don’t want to offend Trump by doing anything that might appear to question the legitimacy of his 2016 win.

    1. He said Democrats “want to destroy our country as we know it.”
    2. If Democrats win in 2020, “they would shut down your free speech,”
    4. After saying Democrats would go after their enemies with the law, Trump suggested Attorney General Bill Barr might still go after Hillary Clinton.
    5. Trump continued to deny that the tariffs he imposes, which are just import taxes, are actually taxes on Americans.

    Note: Trump filed the paperwork with the Federal Election Commission the day he was inaugurated to run for president in 2020…

    they can limit what she can say about her time working in the White House.

    The problem for Trump is that Hicks was with him for years. She can talk about what happened during the campaign and the transition. She can talk about Trump Tower meeting. She can speak about efforts to cover up communications with the Russians. There is still a great that Hicks can say that isn’t good for Trump.

    House Judiciary Democrats emerged from the Hope Hicks interview enraged by the White House counsel blocking every single question she was asked about the Trump presidency.

    Rep. Eric Swalwell said, “I’ll say this about Ms. Hicks. Almost every question I observed, you know, she’s refusing to answer, and that’s a problem.”

    This claim of “immunity” is laughable. No such immunity exists. Not even close.

    Who knew Hillary is running for President 2020? Or is Donald Trump lost in the past?

    Nadler says he’ll challenge — and defeat — the White House’s immunity claims in court: “Hope Hicks answered some questions. She gave us a lot of good information. The White House asserted so called absolute immunity which is ridiculous and which we’ll destroy in court,” he said
