Democrats Angry Hope Hicks Didn't Answer Questions As They Waste Taxpayer Money On A Witch Hunt

Democrats Angry Hope Hicks Didn't Answer Questions As They Waste Taxpayer Money On A Witch Hunt

Clearly, many details remained unearthed, including the location of Hicks's desk at the White House.

But White House lawyers right away objected to allowing Hicks to answer as Nadler continued to press Hicks about Trump seeking to get Lewandowski to deliver a directive to Sessions, which she had typed. It detailed 155 times White House lawyers prevented her from answering questions.

Earlier on Thursday, an expert witness told the committee at a public hearing that Trump's remarks to ABC could violate the presidential oath of office and provide evidence for any future impeachment inquiry.

The House Committee is investigating whether President Trump or members of his administration attempted to obstruct special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian collusion in the 2016 presidential election.

She faced questions about Trump's former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski, with who she was rumored to have had an affair.

Nadler pledged to release a transcript of Hicks' testimony soon.

"Nobody quite understood why she was back in the U.S. Capitol yesterday doing essentially another deposition", Nunes said.

Appearing to break with the president, Hicks at one point said she would not accept dirt on a political opponent from a foreign government and would not advise someone on a campaign to do so. It was a joke.

Tesla's Autopilot Found Most Likely to Confuse Drivers on Safety
IIHS took a look at the instrument cluster of a 2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class with the Drive Pilot system for this objective . Just as the Euro NCAP did a while back , the IIHS chose Tesla's Autopilot as an example of a poorly named technology.

The Mueller report noted that "Within approximately five hours of Trump's statement, GRU officers targeted for the first time Clinton's personal office".

Democrats asked ask Hicks about several of those episodes, including efforts to remove Mueller from the investigation, pressure on former Attorney General Jeff Sessions and the firing of FBI Director James Comey. The emails retrieved during the hack were then published by WikiLeaks on July 22, 2016, just before the 2016 Democratic National Convention.

Hicks told lawmakers she learned about the meeting "in June of 2017", which is consistent with her testimony to the special counsel. But that denial doesn't entirely line up with Mueller's findings. Hicks said that she didn't find that request "concerning", but she did believe it was "odd". During a line of questioning from Rep. David Cicilline, D-Rhode Island, Hicks was asked whether the campaign was "happy to receive information damaging to Hillary Clinton". "I lived the Mueller report".

"As a matter of longstanding executive branch precedent in the Department of Justice practice and advice, as a former senior adviser to the president, Ms. Hicks may not be compelled to speak about events that occurred during her service as a senior adviser to the president", Michael Purpura, deputy counsel to the president, told Nadler.

"Sometimes there would be speculation about if there would be more emails or information released, but that was prompted by things in the media so - and, obviously, it wasn't, you know, certain certainty".

A White House lawyer present at Wednesday's hearing directed her to decline to answer at least a hundred questions related to Hicks' time with the administration.

Former White House communications director Hope Hicks testified in a closed-door hearing this week before the House Judiciary committee, and the transcript of that meeting was released by the committee on Thursday.
