Former White House Communications Director Hope Hicks arrived on Capitol Hill on Wednesday to testify behind closed doors before the House Judiciary Committee.
Hicks, once a close aide to President Trump, was subpoenaed last month and ordered to produced documents related to Trump’s firing of former FBI Director James Comey and information related to the president’s efforts to order White House counsel Don McGahn to fire Special Counsel Robert Mueller.
The House Judiciary Committee also wanted her to turn over documents about a statement issued regarding the Trump Tower meeting in 2017 between Donald Trump Jr., former campaign chairman Paul Manafort, Jared Kushner and a Russian lawyer.
The White House has asserted immunity over Hicks’ testimony involving her 14 months in the Trump administration, a source told Reuters.
The 30-year-old, who worked as Trump’s campaign press secretary, arrived in Washington around 9 a.m. with two personal lawyers and ignored shouted questions from reporters.
Two White House lawyers are also expected to join her.
Hicks left the Trump administration in March 2018. She now works as the chief communications officer and executive president for Fox Corporation.
