For a party that pushes for equality this sheds a new light…
Devin Nunes said Thursday that during a closed-door interview with the House Judiciary Committee, “pervy, old” Democratic congressmen asked former White House communications director Hope Hicks about her love life.
“Nobody quite understood why she was back in the U.S. Capitol yesterday doing essentially another deposition,” Nunes said of Hicks during an interview. “My sources that were inside and did the interviewing said it was quite embarrassing to watch the Democratic congressmen essentially ask Hope Hicks about her love life.”
“I think that’s very bizarre to have a bunch of old, pervy congressmen asking somebody who has no new information about her love life,” Nunes added. “I think the American people would be ashamed if they knew what actually happened in that room.”
Nunes, the House Intelligence Committee’s top Republican, has not identified his sources for information about Hicks ‘ deposition. While working at the White House, Hicks was reportedly engaged romantically with Rob Porter, who served as White House staff secretary until Feb. 7, 2018.
Hicks left the White House on March 29, 2018.
Hicks was questioned for several hours about her work for President Donald Trump on the campaign, during the presidential transition period and in the White House. She declined to answer questions about her White House stint after Trump asserted executive privilege.
The House Judiciary committee chairman, New York Democratic Rep. Jerry Nadler, subpoenaed Hicks in May. Nadler asked for papers and other data from 81 Trump-related people and organizations.
Trump accused Democrats on Wednesday of “putting wonderful Hope Hicks through hell.”
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? Why aren’t they…….
