Hope Hicks has been subpoenaed by House Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler. The former White House Communications Director has been ordered to testify and provide documents in relation to investigations into President Trump and his administration regarding possible obstruction of justice and corruption.

Nadler (D-N.Y.) also issued a subpoena for Annie Donaldson, former White House counsel Don McGahn’s former chief of staff.

According to The Hill, “Democrats believe Donaldson and Hicks witnessed a series of key events that they hope to examine as they review the episodes Mueller examined as possible obstruction of justice.”

“As I said earlier today, the Judiciary Committee’s investigation into obstruction of justice, public corruption and abuse of power by President Trump and his Administration will continue,” Nadler said in a statement.

Both Hicks and Donaldson are to provide documents by June 4, with Hicks set to appear before the committee on June 19 and Donaldson on June 24.
