Hope Hicks, a longtime Trump aide, speaks with the January 6 committee

WASHINGTON — Hope Hicks, who served as a top adviser to former President Donald Trump, speaks with the Jan. 6 committee on Tuesday, a source familiar with NBC News told NBC News.

The Jan. 6 committee declined to provide comment or additional details. Hicks did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Hicks held several leadership positions in Trump’s White House for much of his presidency. She left the White House six days after the Jan. 6 insurrection, on Jan. 12, after serving as an adviser to the president. She previously served as White House communications director as well as director of strategic communications. Prior to his White House stints, Hicks worked for Trump’s presidential campaign, the Trump Organization and Ivanka Trump’s fashion brand.

Hicks was one of Trump’s closest White House confidantes and previously refused to answer questions about working for the president when she testified before lawmakers behind closed doors in 2019.

The Jan. 6 panel held its last hearing on Oct. 13 and subpoenaed Trump himself last week to testify on or around Nov. 14.

In an interview over the weekend, Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., vice chair of the committee, didn’t rule out taking the former president’s live televised testimony.
