Trump Defends “Wonderful” Hope Hicks After She Claims Immunity Dozens Of Times During Questioning

The Daily Beast reports:

House Judiciary Committee Democrats are not happy with Hope Hicks. The president’s former adviser responded to questions from members of the committee behind closed doors on Capitol Hill on Wednesday, and—per numerous members—didn’t give them much to go on. As a result, members said they expect to take her to court.

“This is the beginning of what I presume will be litigation proceedings,” said Rep. David Cicilline (D-RI), who has already called for movement on impeachment.

Rep. Madeleine Dean, a Pennsylvania Democrat, said lawyers in the room objected “dozens and dozens of times,” claiming Hicks was immune from demands she testify about her work with the president. Cicilline called that claim “specious.”
