Hope Hicks, former White House communications director, is expected to cooperate with the House Judiciary Committee’s investigation into whether Donald Trump obstructed justice.
Judiciary chairman Jerry Nadler sent a letter to Hicks earlier this month, in which he asked for documents related to the firing of FBI director James Comey, false statements made by ex-national security advisor Michael Flynn to the FBI, hush money payments sent to sexual partners of Trump and the drafting of misleading letters about Donald Trump Jr.’s 2016 meeting with Russians at Trump Tower, according to CNN.
The Congressman wants personal or work documents dealing with Hicks' work at the White House and the Trump Organization.
Daniel Schwartz, Nadler’s spokesperson, said she has agreed to comply with the request.
Hicks did testify at a closed-door session of the House Intelligence Committee last year when it was chaired by Republican Congressman Devin Nunes, a close ally of the president. At that meeting, she only answered questions from Republicans.
Democrat Adam Schiff, who now chairs the Intelligence panel, may also ask Hicks for documents.
Following her White House resignation, Hicks landed a top PR job at Fox. She began her PR career at Zeno Group and represented Ivanka Trump at Hiltzik Strategies before joining the Trump Organization as communications director.
