Jan. 6 Panel Drags Who Into Court?
Former White House aide Hope Hicks is set to appear before the House special committee in charge of investigating the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol attack. The announcement of the scheduling was made by a source close to the situation.
Hicks was former President Trump’s counselor for a time but had exited the administration a little bit before the Jan. 6 events. Hicks had previously been employed by the Trump organization and the Trump campaign before working at the White House. During her time there, she was considered one of Trump’s closest associates.
The committee has been set on interviewing all those who were close to former President Trump around the time of the Capitol Attach. Previously Hicks had refused to answer questions asked about her time in the White House. This was during an interview with the House Judiciary Committee in 2019. Her level of cooperation in the current investigation is also yet to be determined.
Recently though, Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) has noted that there has been more cooperation from Republicans, and that a lot of the evidence that they have gathered in the final hearings of the committee has come from that side. The committee’s final hearing took place earlier this month, and during the meeting, it was decided that Trump would be subpoenaed.
