Transcript for Top Trump aide expected to testify in Russia probe
We got new developments in the Russia investigation. The president's closest personal aide hope hicks is heading to capitol hill for an interview with the house intelligence committee as trs son-in-law Jared Kushner white house's role is clouded about questions over his security clearance. Pierre Thomas is tracking the latest. Good morning. Reporter: George, good morning. One of the key questions we expect Democrats on the house intelligence committee to pursue is hope hicks' role on that air force one flight back from the summit where she helped the president respond to questions about that trump tower meeting involving Donald Trump Jr., Jared Kushner, Paul manafort and a number of Russians. Don junior with help from the president helpeded up making a misleading statement saying it was about Russian adoptions and later learned it was set up in order for the trump campaign to receive damaging information on Hillary Clinton that was supposed to be provided by the Russians. Mark Corallo, the former spokesman for the legal defense team has claimed hicks has said information about the meeting's real purpose would never get out, an allegation the Democrats will certainly want to focus on. We'll see if she answers those questions. Chief of staff John Kelly said anybody in the white house without a permanent security clearance would lose their access to classified information on Friday. It's unclear whether that's happened to Jared Kushner despite warnings from the justice department that he's not going to get a permanent clearance. Reporter: We're told the deputy attorney general Rosenstein warned officials that there were issues with his clearance that required further review. He did not offer specifics but did make clear he would not get full clearance any time soon. The white house will not say what's happened to his access to classified information. Thanks very much.
