Hope Hicks told House intel committee her email was hacked: report

Published

on

Newly-resigned White House communications director Hope Hicks told the House Intelligence Committee last week that two of her email addresses had been hacked.

NBC News reported Wednesday that Hicks informed the committee when answering a routine question that she was locked out of both her personal email address and the one she used when working on President Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign. One of those emails had been hacked, she told them, but did not specify which.

Four people familiar with Hicks’ testimony told NBC that she “portrayed herself as not savvy in matters of technology.”

“It is standard practice for lawmakers to ask witnesses about phone numbers and email accounts,” NBC noted, indicating that it’s unclear if Rep. Jim Himes (D-CT) continued his line of questioning. “But it is uncommon, according to people familiar with the committee process, for a witness to tell lawmakers that he or she no longer has access to past accounts.”

"If the new scandal involving President Trump and Ukraine is as bad as it seems -- and that is, of course, a very big if at this early stage -- the House will have no choice but to impeach, consequences be damned," he writes.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi warned President Donald Trump was "stepping into a dangerous minefield" if he had offered U.S. military aid to Ukraine in exchange for damaging information about Joe Biden.

The California Democrat said the administration was violating federal law by blocking a whistleblower complaint against the president from congressional review, and she said Trump and his acting director of national intelligence must end their "stonewalling."

"If the President has done what has been alleged, he is stepping into a dangerous minefield with serious repercussions for his Administration and our democracy," Pelosi said.

‘This is deadly serious’: House Judiciary member warns Trump’s whistleblower stonewalling is impeachable

Published

on

A Democratic member of the House Judiciary Committee warned that President Donald Trump's refusal to release a whistleblower complaint against him could be an impeachable offense.

An intelligence official filed the complaint last month, which the inspector general recommended for congressional oversight, but acting director of national intelligence Joseph Maguire has refused to turn over at the Justice Department's recommendation.

Rep. David Cicilline (D-RI), a senior member of the judiciary committee where impeachment would begin, warned the president to follow the law -- or else.
