Pelosi rules out censuring Trump if U.S. House doesn’t impeach him

"I don't want to see him impeached, I want to see him in prison", the House Speaker said, according to Politico.

Hicks "agreed with the assessment of the intelligence community that the Russians had attacked the 2016 election by aiding the candidacy of President Trump and hurting that of Hillary Clinton", according to the press release, also saying she would not accept "foreign oppo [sition] information from a foreign government" and would report it to be the Federal Bureau of Investigation if she deemed it credible.

During a line of questioning from Rep. David Cicilline, D-Rhode Island, Hicks was asked whether the campaign was "happy to receive information damaging to Hillary Clinton".

In an exclusive interview with ABC News' George Stephanopoulos last week, Trump said he would consider accepting opposition research about a political rival during the 2020 presidential campaign. "I'm not sure that you can attribute it to one factor". "I think "relief that we weren't the only campaign with issues" is more accurate".

The House Committee is investigating whether President Trump or members of his administration attempted to obstruct special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian collusion in the 2016 presidential election.

Representative Doug Collins, the panel's top Republican, said the transcript contained no new information and called on Democrats to subpoena Mueller to testify.

At 140 mentions, Hicks is the most-cited person in the Mueller report.

Former Special Counsel Robert Mueller's 448-page report on Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential campaign found insufficient evidence to establish that the Trump campaign engaged in a criminal conspiracy with Moscow, despite numerous contacts between the campaign and Russia.

When asked for a followup, she was cut off by White House attorney Patrick Philbin, who objected to the question. Hicks asked one questioner.

"It's not an interference, they have information-I think I'd take it", Trump told ABC News. If he would have recused himself before the job, I would have said, Thanks, Jeff, but I can't, you know, I'm not going to take you, ' close quote. As we get into the fall, the narrow period we've got for the Democratic primary debates and the like, the more opportunity [there is] for Trump to argue that it's all political.

Citing anonymous sources that were "current and former administration officials, as well as people close to Trump and Hicks", CNN asserted that the "once-close pair's communication first slowed, then came to a virtual halt, after she left the White House".

Throughout Hicks' daylong testimony, after which she declined to speak with reporters outside the committee room, Democratic lawmakers fumed at the lack of questions the longtime Trump confidante answered. She said they most recently saw each other in April, when they met for dinner and reminisced about the campaign. Witnesses who have appeared (this week, e.g., former Trump aide Hope Hicks) are refusing to answer substantive questions, he said, adding that it appears Congress might not receive Trump's tax returns before next year or even end of term.
