President Donald Trump’s former communications director Hope Hicks will comply with a request for documents from the House Judiciary Committee, which is overseeing a probe into the president and allegations of obstruction of justice, CNN reported on Wednesday.
Hicks, who had a close working relationship with Trump, is set to turn over documents related to the investigation to the committee, a spokesman for House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler said.
Nadler requested materials on an array of issues, including Trump’s controversial firing of FBI Director James Comey, false statements former national security adviser Michael Flynn made to the FBI, and Donald Trump Jr.’s meeting with a Kremlin-linked lawyer in Trump Tower during the 2016 election. Nadler has also been looking into hush-money payments to two women who said they had affairs with Trump.
In a letter sent to Hicks in early March, Nadler asked for “any personal or work diary, journal or other book containing notes, a record or a description of daily events.”
A White House spokesperson declined to comment on this development when contacted by CNN.
