Hope Hicks Congress Transcript Out – She Agrees Russians Helped Trump 2016 Campaign

Former White House communications director Hope Hicks refused to answer about 155 questions during her testimony Wednesday in front of the House Judiciary Committee, according to a transcript of her appearance released today.

Hicks appeared with a body of lawyers from the Trump administration and was stopped from answering questions about the Trump presidential campaign, the firing of former FBI director James Comey, and the resignation of former national security advisor Michael Flynn, among other issues.

The initial transcript of the closed-door interview with Hope Hicks can be found here. The House Committee is investigating whether President Trump or members of his administration attempted to obstruct special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian collusion in the 2016 presidential election.

The White House had opposed Hicks’s testimony and directed her not to turn over to Congress any documents related to her administration duties. The White House has claimed Hicks was immune from being asked about her administration tasks. “The White House asserted so-called absolute immunity, which is ridiculous and which we’ll destroy in court,” said Jerrold Nadler (D-NY), the head of the Committee.

Hicks did assert that the campaign used materials from Wikileaks that was publicly available, and said the Trump campaign felt “relief” when material damaging to Hillary Clinton was released.

Hicks also said that the Secret Service was made aware of a blackmail threat against President Trump by the notorious hacker Guccifer 2.0. She also said she was “very surprised” to learn about 100 contacts between the Trump campaign and various Russians, and agreed that the Russians had attacked the 2016 election and aided Trump while hurting Clinton.

  1. wow, what revelations…..absolutely NOTHING new there…Nadler was able to learn that tomorrow the sun will come up, rising in the east, then it will be daylight, and much to the Democrats shock and surprise, the sun will later set in the west and it will get dark…alert the press.

  2. “The House Committee is investigating whether President Trump or members of his administration attempted to obstruct special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian collusion in the 2016 presidential election.”

    Did Robert Mueller accuse the President of ANY act that obstructed his investigation? He did not.
    Has the House Committee identified ANY specific ACT that obstructed Mueller’s investigation? They have not.

    By the way, did you know the “House Committee” has a name? It’s called the Judicial Committee and its business and oversight is over the Judicial Branch, not the Executive Branch. So what exactly are they doing investigating the Executive Branch, something completely outside their charter?

    Sure sounds like another abuse of power and witch hunt.

  3. Leftshot: Again the democrats try to get away with another illegal activity. How often does this continue to go on and on with no one objecting to this? The house republicans just sit on their hands and keep their mouths shut time and time again. We have no working government anymore. It is soon going to be time to rise up and put a stop to all this BS. I’m ready, are you?
