As President Trump gets the royal treatment in jolly ol’ London Town, some of his stateside chaps aren’t acting quite as chummy.
The President and the White House have been engaged in an egregious and arduous standoff with congressional lawmakers over witnesses and documents pertaining to the Robert Mueller investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election. The democrats, specifically, feel as though Mueller left them with more questions than answers, even after 22 months and at least $25 million in resources.
Trump has put it very bluntly on his end: No do-overs.
This has led the White House to instruct any and all former counsel members to defy any subpoena that comes their way.
Former Aide to the President, Hope Hicks, has chosen to disobey that guidance.
Former White House Communications Director Hope Hicks, once a close aide to President Donald Trump, has agreed to turn over documents related to his 2016 campaign to congressional investigators, a key lawmaker said on Tuesday.
The agreement marks a step forward for the House Judiciary Committee in its probes of Trump and his inner circle, with Democrats in the U.S. Congress digging into the campaign, Trump’s turbulent presidency and his business interests.
Hicks agreed to supply the documents despite a White House directive advising her not to cooperate with the committee.
House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler has threatened to hold anyone defying congressional subpoenas to be in contempt of Congress.Don't forget to Like Godfather Politics on Facebook and Twitter, and visit our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
