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.
