Donaldson broadly told the committee that large portions of what they were seeking was privileged. She did, however, also confirm the accuracy of the notes on her from Mueller’s prosecutors.

Donaldson, who is married to a Trump judicial nominee who failed spectacularly amid questions about his defenses of the KKK, served as an aide to White House Counsel Don McGahn between 2017 and 2018. After leaving the post, she took up with the law firm of former Alabama Sen. Luther Strange.
