Former White House aide Hicks agrees to testify to House panel investigating Trump

Source: Washington Post

Hope Hicks, a top aide to President Trump during his 2016 campaign and his first year in the White House, has agreed to testify before the House Judiciary Committee next Wednesday, according to people familiar with the matter.

Hicks will be the first former Trump aide to go before the committee investigating whether Trump tried to obstruct a probe into Russian interference in the 2016 election. But Hicks might not answer many of the panelís questions, citing the presidentís assertion of executive privilege on events that occurred inside the White House.

Earlier this month, the White House instructed Hicks not to cooperate with a congressional subpoena for documents related to her White House service. Robert Trout, a lawyer for Hicks, declined to comment.

The testimony will occur behind closed doors, said the individuals, but a transcript will be released to the public. A member of the White House Counselís Office will be present for the testimony as part of the deal between Hicks and the committee, according to an individual familiar with the planning who spoke on the condition of anonymity to freely describe the arrangements.

3. I understand that she has a liberal family.

They don't understand where they went wrong with her.

Maybe they have influenced her and/or offered familial support.

4. Such a Tease

There's no way she's going to jail for Trump, I wouldn't be surprised if she knows how small his hands really are. I actually have a little sympathy for her, she thought she was getting a real White House job with prestige and a future.

She was surprised to find a clown car full of clown cabinet members running the circus.

She had hoped Trump was a ringmaster, but found he was just a another New York clown with Roman hands.

5. I expect she's watching these contempt votes and smart enough to recognize that the

game is about up.

7. What's to prevent her...

from pleading the 5th amendment to every question asked? She showed up, right? I don't trust one of these scum-sucking pigs in the Drumpf administration.
