Ex-Trump top aide Hope Hicks to testify before House panel


Ex-White House Communications Director Hope Hicks, once a close aide to President Trump, has agreed to give a closed-door interview to the House Judiciary Committee on June 19, the panel’s chairman said on Wednesday.

Hicks last week agreed to supply documents from Trump’s 2016 campaign to the committee, despite a White House directive advising her not to provide the panel with material from her subsequent time at the White House.

“We look forward to her testimony and plan to make the transcript promptly available to the public,” committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler of New York said in a statement.
