Hope Hicks Refused to Answer Committee’s Questions 155 Times

Pelosi signaled that she is warming up to impeachment proceedings, telling reporters at a Christian Science Monitor breakfast Wednesday that a political wrist slap is out of the question.

"There's a lot of politics behind the discussion", Romney said, "but I think any time you consider impeachment you recognize that there is a political component to that discussion".

White House attorney Michael Purpura immediately objected. She also said she was "very surprised" to learn about 100 contacts between the Trump campaign and various Russians, and agreed that the Russians had attacked the 2016 election and aided Trump while hurting Clinton. "If I thought there was something wrong, I'd go maybe to the FBI-if I thought there was something wrong". "To some extent, they reflect public opinion", he said. "I spoke to others on the campaign, other senior officials". "I wouldn't be embracing the inquiry if I thought it was realistic".

"It's not an interference, they have information-I think I'd take it", Trump told ABC News.

"If you're going to go, you ought to go". Democrats alleged that the White House was obstructing justice by preventing a now-private citizen from answering questions; they vowed to go to court over the matter as Hicks was not complying with a congressional subpoena. We must initiate the impeachment process because to do otherwise is turning a blind eye to what is in front of us.

Nearly immediately after the start of questioning, the White House attorney, who House Democrats permitted to attend the hearing, began to issue "objections" to questions asked by committee chair Rep.

"One of the things that disappointed me when we went in there was that the last time we met with the Democrats in the House, their level of non-defense discretionary spending was $639 billion", Mulvaney said.

Democrats on the committee said lawyers representing the Trump administration blocked Hicks from answering questions 155 times. They also planned to ask about Hicks' knowledge of hush-money payments orchestrated by former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen to two women who claimed to have had affairs with Trump - the porn actress Stormy Daniels and model Karen McDougal.

"We don't know all of it yet and the more new facts come out the better-informed decision the American people and then the Congress can make on this issue", Schumer said at a press conference on Tuesday.
