WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Former White House Communications Director Hope Hicks, once a close aide to President Donald Trump, has agreed to turn over documents related to his 2016 election campaign to congressional investigators, a top Democratic lawmaker said on Tuesday.
Nadler commended Hicks for providing "some documents" relating to the campaign.
"I thank her for that show of good faith," Nadler said in a statement. The Democrat criticized what he called Trump's "continued obstruction of Congress."
Nadler said: "The president has no lawful basis for preventing these witnesses from complying with our request."
The committee chairman told reporters that Hicks and Donaldson, a former aide to ex-White House counsel Don McGahn, could face contempt proceedings if they do not comply.
