The Dems are very unhappy with the Mueller Report, so after almost 3 years, they want a Redo, or Do Over. This is extreme Presidential Harassment. They gave Crooked Hillary’s people complete Immunity, yet now they bring back Hope Hicks. Why aren’t the Dems looking at the.....
So sad that the Democrats are putting wonderful Hope Hicks through hell, for 3 years now, after total exoneration by Robert Mueller & the Mueller Report. They were unhappy with result so they want a Do Over. Very unfair & costly to her. Will it ever end? Why aren’t they.......
Excited I got Hope Hicks to answer one question about her tenure at the White House. I asked if on her first day, "was it a sunny day or a cloudy day?" You'll need to wait for the transcript to see her answer b/c @GOP
is mad I'm live tweeting the absurdity of absolute immunity. https://t.co/yfKQZRbXsL
Today’s Hope Hicks closed-door hearing is a political stunt. Democrats are looking to recreate the Mueller investigation.
Meanwhile, the crisis on the border continues. When will Dems focus on helping the country?
I am watching Obstruction of Justice in action, as @TheJusticeDept
is objecting to everything that Hope Hicks wants to say during her tenure in the White House. The Administration's position is absurd & they will lose in court.
What is the @realDonaldTrump
Administration hiding? https://t.co/BqhkJJlbU5
More absurdity from @TheJusticeDept
attorney in the Hope Hicks interview.
Republican Member: Ms. Hicks, did you previously testify before Congress?
Ridiculous DOJ Attorney: OBJECTION!
Republican Member: Did you testify voluntarily?
Ridiculous DOJ Attorney: OBJECTION!
One reason @HouseJudiciary
did this interview of Hope Hicks?
(1) To put on the record the absurdity of the immunity claim so that we win in court. Ruling would then apply to other witnesses.
(2) To make the judge laugh. But that's a function of (1) above.
Trump is desperate to avoid having Hicks answer questions about crimes-obstruction of justice & campaign finance violations. She isn’t his wife or his priest & no privilege covers her knowledge of criminal conduct. https://t.co/Ls9lsbMqoj
BREAKING: In new letter to White House, Rep. Nadler rejects Trump claim of executive privilege over Hope Hicks testimony tomorrow.
Question for any Democratic House committee member or member's office: why is Hope Hicks getting to testify in secret? Why was Donald Trump Jr. allowed to do so? Can someone explain the benefit to the public, if any?
Question: "So they're preventing [Hope Hicks] from talking about anything?"
: "Anything related to her tenure in the White House -- absolutely. Even something as simple as 'where is your office located?' 'Objection.' It is ridiculous."
Rep. Pramila Jayapal: "It's a farce."
Rep. Ted Lieu: "We're watching obstruction of justice in action."
Judiciary Dems are livid as Hope Hicks won’t answer questions as basic as where she sat in the West Wing or whether she told the truth to Mueller.
Trump is now asserting that there is a privilege that permits his former staff & allies to avoid testifying about his potentially criminal conduct. There's no pretense that this is about deliberative activities in the WH. And no such privilege exists. https://t.co/SCLpPceL4m
So, I’m sure it’s been pointed out already, but the White House / DoJ claim of “absolute immunity” in regards to Hope Hicks’ tenure at the White House is absolutely ludicrous.
Pelosi called it obstruction of justice. Now would be a great time for her to do something about it.
"Obstruction of justice," Pelosi says when I asked her about WH saying Hope Hicks cannot answer questions about her time at the WH
Dems not happy so far with Hope Hicks appearance. Karen Bass told me “it’s pretty ridiculous” WH counsels are objecting to any questions about her time at the WH, as Nadler goes one-by-one through the questions. Nadler made clear to Hicks and the WH that he views this as “absurd”
Question: "So they're preventing Hope Hicks from talking about anything?"
Rep. @TedLieu: "Anything related to her tenure in the White House -- absolutely. Even something as simple as 'where is your office located?' 'Objection.' It is ridiculous."
Moral cowardice? 100 days without a briefing. the UN links Saudi Prince to Khashoggi's murder. Hope Hicks testifying in Congress and you still scream "Fake News" when you're a documented liar. As far as character, virtue and spine . . . Bone Spurs. @realDonaldTrump https://t.co/BCqcGpBo5B
Donald Trump's day so far:
- Hope Hicks testifies
- Trump whines about it
- Insists the hearings are "rigged"
- Still ranting and raving about Hillary
- Nancy Pelosi warms up to impeachment
- We told you it's coming
- Trump is going to prison
- It's still only 1:20pm
Hope Hicks has sealed lips. The former pants steamer followed her former boss’s dictate not to cooperate and to claim immunity. This is a farce. https://t.co/X0S1VOqF5C
Today's Hope Hicks fiasco underscores the huge risk for Dems in refraining from impeachment hearings.
“This highlights the extreme challenge of moving forward with traditional oversight in the face of extraordinary obstruction," @tedlieu
Hey Hope Hicks
You should be ashamed of yourself and will go down in History as a known liar, enabler, dater of married men & wife abuser and trump pant suit steamer
Hope Hicks is everything the Congressional Democrats are NOT!
Dems believe they must destroy HOPE because they have failed at their attempt to destroy President Trump.

I’m SO F*CKING TIRED of Democrats playing New Age politics and losing, while Republicans play Stone Age politics and win.
‘It’s a farce': Dems livid as Hope Hicks dodges questions https://t.co/79AksrkZ5g
Dalton Trumbo did 11 months in a federal offense essentially for doing what Hope Hicks did today.
Attorneys telling Hope Hicks not to testify to Congress are not just protecting Trump, they are protecting Putin. This isn't a white collar crime case. It's treason- an attack on the US by Trump & his conspirators w/ Putin. These attorneys are criminals. We have to make them pay
Since Hope Hicks has refused to provide any real information to Congress today (quelle surprise) you should read my piece that explains what immunity really is, how Hicks doesn't have it and how Dems will have to pursue this now in the courts. https://t.co/bFmmZPDhtZ
Democrats truly have no choice but to open an impeachment inquiry. The sheer emptiness of what they're doing now is so apparent it's just goddamn embarrassing. As @ThePlumLineGS
points out here: https://t.co/ZvI9XVXC5G
(Thread) The Paranoid Style in American Politics
The latest outrage is Hope Hicks refusing to answer Congressional questions based on an entirely-made up “legal” principle of immunity or privilege.
I’m hearing a lot of frustration and blame . . .
What is wrong with the Dems - No. 1 - interview her in public, No 2 - ask questions she can’t avoid based on the Mueller report, No. 3 - don’t go to court, use inherent authority, declare her in contempt, and hold her in custody until she speaks. See - https://t.co/xPzzdjs37Q

Do you think Melania is jealous that Trump is so concerned about Hope Hicks? And that he spells her name correctly?
Of course Mitch Fucking McConnell actually said this! 🙄
"You made up for slavery by electing Barack Obama"
I just can't today, first Hope Hicks and now this AssHole!
Enough Already! 🤬 #ImpeachTheMFNancy
How can we get upset with anyone who refuses to obey police orders during a traffic stop when people in power refuse to answer simple questions when ordered to do so when they appear before Congress? #HopeHicks

Can’t believe how low you have fallen in reporting. It’s a shame. Hope Hicks interviewed thoroughly by Mueller. Liberal dems are a disgrace.
Hope Hicks' silence was about being scared. Her biggest mistake? Signing on with Trump--Devil Incarnate! Christ warned about guys like trump. Quoting Timothy 2:22, he counseled them: "...when u see the wicked coming, walk AWAY from them, UNDER them, OVER them & AROUND them."
is making you look like toddlers, Him & Hope Hicks laughed it up today.
Where are the fines?
Where are the contempt charge?
If Congress has EQUAL POWER, PROVE IT, use it.
Why didn't you subpoena Mueller, RIGHT AFTER the report was released?
Hope Hicks is a lying piece of garbage, and one day justice will prevail, and she will answer for her crimes, as will, all the Trump enablers!!
