‘Obstruction Of Justice’: House Dems Slam ‘Ridiculous’ DOJ Lawyers For Completely Restricting Hope Hicks’s Answers During Hearing

House Democrats are not pleased with the way Hope Hicks’ congressional testimony went as she was restricted from answering any questions regarding her time at the White House.

Democrats called the move by Trump administration lawyers “ridiculous.”

A White House lawyer who accompanied Hicks, who left the government in early 2018, repeatedly objected to questions from congressional investigators.

Rep. Ted Lieu (D-CA), who took part in the closed-door hearing, also called the White House lawyer’s objections “ridiculous.”

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was also asked about the hearing to which she simply replied saying, “obstruction of justice.”

Hicks has answered some of the committee’s questions, according to Rep. David Cicilline (D-RI), but insists she should be immune from discussing her White House service.

Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY), the House Judiciary Committee chairman, has said those claims of immunity are absurd because the topics Democrats are asking about have already been made public in the report from special counsel Robert Mueller.

Hicks is mentioned 184 times in that report.
