Here is how the article begins:

One of the best-known but least visible former members of President Trump’s White House staff is facing an existential question: whether to comply with a congressional subpoena in the coming weeks.

The aide, the former communications director Hope Hicks, who left the White House with an enduring mystique that inspired countless news media profiles, is now a private citizen living in California. One of the president’s original campaign aides, she went on to become one of his closest advisers while managing to maintain a personal relationship with him, his daughter Ivanka and his son-in-law, Jared Kushner.

But she has not completely left her time in the White House behind: She appears on more than two dozen pages in the report by the special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, mostly in the second volume, which deals with allegations of obstruction of justice against Mr. Trump.

Like few others in the White House, Ms. Hicks was witness to some of the president’s angriest moments and most pointed directives about the investigations into the Trump campaign and its contacts with Russians in 2016. Her dilemma now is how to respond to House Democrats, who have grown frustrated and increasingly aggressive in the face of a sweeping decision by the Trump administration, and the Trump Organization, to oppose such subpoenas.

It should be noted that Hope Hicks has no right to refuse to comply with this subpoena and that only Trump can block her testimony by invoking executive privilege. 

The idea that this young woman can defy the law, while other Americans face jail or even death for doing so angered a certain freshman member of Congress. 

The fundamental Trump Administration policy is that they are above the law and cannot be held to the same standards as average Americans. 

I think it is well past time that they learn the falsity of that point of view.

    As you have said, Gryph, they skate while the rest of us would pay dearly.
    Just another self-entitled bitch and courts stacked to turn a blind eye.
