Chairman Nadler Issues Subpoenas for Hope Hicks & Annie Donaldson

Washington, May 21, 2019

Washington, D.C. –Today, House Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) issued subpoenas to Annie Donaldson, former chief of staff for former White House counsel Don McGahn and for Hope Hicks, former White House Communications Director. The subpoenas were issued for testimony and documents related to the House Judiciary Committee's ongoing investigation into obstruction of justice, public corruption, and other abuses of power by President Trump, his associates, and members of his Administration.  The redacted version of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's report documented alarming misconduct and obstruction of justice by President Trump. Donaldson and Hicks were critical witnesses to this behavior.

Chairman Nadler issued the following statement: 

“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. I have issued these subpoenas today to two critical witnesses who have worked closely with the President. We are seeking the information in order to conduct proper oversight, consider potential legislation and perform our constitutional duties.”

On March 4, 2019, Hope Hicks and Annie Donaldson were sent document requests as part of the Committee’s investigation.
