Trump slams Dems over Hope Hicks testimony

United States President Donald Trump took to Twitter on Wednesday to criticize Democrats over their treatment of former White House Communications Director Hope Hicks, who is testifying today before the House Judiciary Committee as part of the investigation into Trump's possible obstruction of justice. Trump stressed that Democrats were putting Hicks "through hell" for three years and keep doing so despite her exoneration in Robert Mueller's report.

"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?" Trump stated. "Why aren’t they asking Hillary Clinton why she deleted and acid washed her Emails AFTER getting a subpoena from Congress? Anybody else would be in jail for that, yet the Dems refuse to even bring it up. Rigged House Committee."

Hicks agreed earlier in June to appear before the House Judiciary Committee despite previously refusing to comply with the panel's subpoena at the request of the White House. Yesterday, however, the White House tried to prevent her testimony one more time, with WH counsel Pat Cipollone stating that Hicks is "absolutely immune from being compelled to testify before Congress with respect to matters occurring during her service as a senior adviser to the President."
