Ex-Trump aide Hicks deflects questions on Capitol Hill

Hope Hicks wrapped up a day on Capitol Hill Wednesday..

Having appeared as Democrats demanded….but frustrated lawmakers said her cooperation with their probe of President Donald Trump ended there... Trump's former close aide coming under fire for refusing to answer many of their questions at a closed door session of the House Judiciary Committee..

As they look into whether Trump obstructed justice in the Russia probe.

Hicks is the first member of Trump's inner circle to testify in that probe on Capitol Hill, after being advised by the White House to defy a subpoena.

Lawmakers told reporters Hicks was directed by her lawyers not to answer questions as basic as the location of her White House office..

Or material she had already offered to Special Counsel ….

Hicks is mentioned more than 180 times in Mueller's report on the Russia probe, in particular, the section devoted to Trump's attempt to impede the investigation.

Democrats had wanted to ask Hicks about an infamous June 2016 meeting at Trump Tower in New York, where the Mueller report said top aides, including the president's son Don Jr., met with Russians offering "dirt" on Trump's Democratic rival Hillary Clinton.

The report says in July 2017, Trump directed Hicks to issue a misleading statement about the meeting, saying only that it had been about Russian adoptions.

Mueller's report concluded there was not enough evidence to say Trump's campaign conspired with Moscow, but he pointedly did not clear Trump of obstruction -- leaving the question up to Congress.

A transcript of Hicks' testimony was expected to be released by the committee and featured at a Thursday hearing.
