The House Judiciary Committee has subpoenaed former White House communications director Hope Hicks and a former aide in the White House counsel's office as Democrats continue their investigations of President Donald Trump.
The committee subpoenaed Hicks for documents and for testimony at a public hearing. It subpoenaed Annie Donaldson for documents and for questioning in a private deposition.
Donaldson was a top aide to former White House Counsel Donald McGahn, who on Tuesday defied a subpoena from the committee to testify. Trump had directed McGahn not to appear.
McGahn was a key figure in special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation, describing ways in which the president sought to curtail that probe.
