WASHINGTON (AP) – Hope Hicks has concluded her closed-door interview with the House Judiciary Committee.
President Donald Trump’s former aide testified over eight hours Wednesday as part of the panel’s investigation of the president, Russian election interference and obstruction of justice.
It was the first time the committee has heard from someone linked to Trump’s inner circle since the release of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report.
It is unclear how much new information if any, she provided in the second-floor hearing room where she met with the panel and staff.
Lawmakers say she was answering questions about the Trump campaign.
But lawyers objected to Hicks answering questions about the Trump presidency, citing something they described as “absolute immunity.”
Democrats say no such thing exists and vowed to go to court
