Hope Hicks Refused to Answer Committee’s Questions 155 Times

Pelosi also reiterated the importance of public sentiment and getting more of the American people on board with the idea of impeaching Trump before Democrats consider going down that path.

"I think that "happy" is not - I don't think that's a fair characterization", Hicks replied. "I don't believe they described hacked information".

At the time, Kushner was an aide, Conway was campaign manager, Miller was an aide who then became a transition official and Bannon was campaign CEO, later becoming a White House chief strategist for several months before leaving.

Hicks was mentioned in Mueller's report multiple times.

The House Judiciary Committee has released a transcript of its interview with former top White House adviser Hope Hicks, who spoke with committee members and staff behind closed doors. But when somebody comes up with oppo research, right, they come up with oppo research, 'Oh let's call the FBI.' The FBI doesn't have enough agents to take care of it.

Mexico Vows Crackdown on Human Smugglers, Aims to Finish Border Guard Reinforcement
The foreign nationals were found among four different tractor-trailer trucks stopped in the Gulf coast state of Veracruz. As part of those efforts, Mexico has pledged to deploy 6,000 National Guard members along its border with Guatemala.

Pelosi has walked a fine line of showcasing the legislation the Democratic-controlled House has passed or has in the pipeline - from ethics reforms and new gun safety measures to protecting some immigrants from deportation - versus the wide-ranging investigations of Trump. "If you want to go, you have to go". Democrats alleged that the White House was obstructing justice by preventing a now-private citizen from answering questions; they vowed to go to court over the matter as Hicks was not complying with a congressional subpoena.

At the same time, she said a less-formal censure would be letting Trump off too lightly.

No Republican senator has yet come out in favor of such an effort and House Democrats are divided about going ahead with impeachment, which never in USA history has resulted in the removal of a president. It was far from clear, for example, that Hicks' closed-door testimony Wednesday revealed anything new.

"I don't think that was a joke, based on what I saw", Hicks told the committee, adding that she would not accept such information from a foreign source today and would report any such offer to federal authorities. Rep. Tom Malinowski of New Jersey is the other so-called "Frontline" Democrat who says the House should launch an inquiry.

The House Judiciary Committee has struck a deal with the Justice Department to receive some underlying materials from Mueller's report.
