Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee are expected to question former White House communications director Hope Hicks when she appears before the panel during a closed-door hearing Wednesday morning. 

Members of the Democratic majority on the committee will question Hicks on the hush money payments President Trump’s former personal attorney Michael Cohen made to adult film actress Stormy Daniels and key moments during the Russia investigation. They will also ask Hicks about the president’s decision to fire FBI Director James Comey and his efforts to thwart special counsel Robert Mueller’s nearly two-year investigation

Hicks left the White House in March 2018. Before her roles as director of communications and strategic communications, she was the national press secretary for Mr. Trump’s presidential transition team and his top spokeswoman during the 2016 campaign.
