Dems Subpoena Ex-WH Communications Dir. Hope Hicks After Don McGahn Skips Hearing

HeadlineMay 22, 2019

The House Judiciary Committee has issued subpoenas to former White House communications director Hope Hicks and Annie Donaldson, former chief of staff to Don McGahn. The panel is seeking documents and the two women’s testimonies as they investigate Trump’s potential obstruction of justice, corruption and abuse of power.

The news came as former White House counsel Don McGahn skipped his congressional hearing Tuesday, after Trump directed him to defy a subpoena for his testimony. House Judiciary Chair Jerry Nadler warned again that McGahn could be cited for contempt if he continues to refuse cooperation with Congress.
