Wide shot of Hope Hicks walking down the hall and going into conference room STORYLINE: Hope Hicks, a former communications director for President Donald Trump, has arrived on Capitol Hill in Washington for a closed door interview with House lawmakers. The interview marks the first time they are hearing from someone linked to President Trump's inner circle since the release of special counsel Robert Mueller's report.  Obtaining the testimony Wednesday from Hicks, a close and trusted former Trump aide, is a significant victory for Democrats, given that Trump has broadly stonewalled their investigations.  The House Judiciary Committee originally subpoenaed Hicks to give public testimony, but agreed to the private interview after negotiations. A transcript of the session will be released in the days afterward.  Still, it is unclear how much new information Hicks will provide.  She already cooperated extensively with Mueller's probe, and a White House lawyer who will be in the room for the interview is expected to try and block her from answering certain questions.  In a letter Tuesday to the committee chairman, Rep. Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., White House counsel Pat Cipollone wrote that Trump had directed Hicks not to answer questions "relating to the time of her service as a senior adviser to the president." =========================================================== Clients are reminded: (i) to check the terms of their licence agreements for use of content outside news programming and that further advice and assistance can be obtained from the AP Archive on: Tel +44 (0) 20 7482 7482 Email: info@aparchive.com(ii) they should check with the applicable collecting society in their Territory regarding the clearance of any sound recording or performance included within the AP Television News service (iii) they have editorial responsibility for the use of all and any content included within the AP Television News service and for libel, privacy, compliance and third party rights applicable to their Territory.
