White House communications director Hope Hicks will not appear before the House Intelligence Committee on Friday as the panel delayed their plans to question her as part of their ongoing investigation into Russia's election meddling.
Multiple sources told CNN earlier this week that Hicks was set to be questioned in regards to any contact campaign associates may have had with Russian operatives during the 2016 presidential campaign.
The panel delayed Hicks' testimony and has yet to set a new date, the Associated Press reported Thursday, citing an unnamed source with information on the matter.
It was being speculated that Hicks would be questioned about her involvement in crafting a statement about the controversial June 2016 meeting between Trump's eldest son Donald Trump Jr., White House adviser and Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner, former campaign manager Paul Manafort, and Kremlin-linked lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya.
Trump Jr. was questioned by congressional investigators last December and reportedly said that he did not directly speak to his father when drafting a response to reports about the controversial Trump Tower meeting, but instead went to Hicks who acted as a liaison between the two.
