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.

Fear of Trump seems to subside a bit. That can only be because people have decided he will lose.

Or somebody with a sense of decency has finally emerged from that morass of human garbage that is the Trump administration.

That somehow seems improbable.

The most likely scenario here is that her lawyer told her to give them a "box full of nothing" so that she has technically complied with the subpoena. What will be interesting is to see the Privilege Log that her counsel gives the Committee for the documents that she withheld.

That's likely the explanation.

Guess I was hoping for at least one instance of respect for rule of law from this administration.
