Former White House Communications Director is the first material witness from the Mueller investigation to appear before the House Judiciary Committee.
Today, House Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) announced Hope Hicks, former senior Trump Campaign official and former White House Communications Director, will be appearing for a transcribed interview with the Committee on June 19. The interview will include questions related to Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential campaign and efforts by President Trump, his associates, and other Administration officials to obstruct justice and investigations into Presidential misconduct.
Below is a statement from Chairman Nadler:
“Today, I am pleased to announce Hope Hicks will appear before the Committee for a transcribed interview. It is important to hear from Ms. Hicks, who was a key witness for the Special Counsel. Ms. Hicks understands that the Committee will be free to pose questions as it sees fit, including about her time on the Trump Campaign and her time in the White House. Should there be a privilege or other objection regarding any question, we will attempt to resolve any disagreement while reserving our right to take any and all measures in response to unfounded privilege assertions. We look forward to her testimony and plan to make the transcript promptly available to the public.”
