Nunes: 'Old, Pervy' Dems Asked Hope Hicks About Love Life

By    |   Thursday, 20 June 2019 02:32 PM

Rep. Devin Nunes Thursday slammed "old, pervy" Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee for asking former White House Communications Director Hope Hicks personal questions about her love life during a closed-door hearing on Wednesday.

"My sources that were inside and did the interviewing said it was quite embarrassing to watch the Democratic congressmen ask Hope Hicks about her love life," the California Democrat told Fox News' "America's Newsroom." "That's bizarre to have a bunch of old, pervy congressman asking somebody who has no new information about her love life. I think the American people would be ashamed if they knew what actually happened in that room."

He pointed out that Hicks, now an executive vice-president and chief communications officer for Fox Corp., had been questioned for "many, many hours" last year by the House Intelligence Committee, and she's also been interviewed by the Senate and special counsel Robert Mueller's team, "so nobody quite understood why she was back in the U.S. Capitol yesterday doing essentially another deposition."

Nunes said he has no idea why Hicks, 30, would have been asked such questions.

The lawmaker also commented on statements from President Donald Trump, who told Fox News show host Sean Hannity Wednesday he'd like to know Republicans hadn't gotten subpoenas to investigate the origins of the surveillance of his campaign when House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has been handing them out "like cookies."

"The president had it mostly right, but also what he didn't talk about was how the DOJ and the FBI continually blocked our subpoenas," said Nunes. "We had very targeted subpoenas and oftentimes they would use the Mueller team, for example, as the reason why they couldn't answer our questions... the DOJ, and the FBI, and Mueller stonewalled us."
