The move was reported Tuesday amid a deadline for both individuals to comply with the Democrat-led panel’s subpoenas for testimony and documents
House Judiciary chairman Jerry Nadler has reportedly said both would likely be held in contempt if they do not comply with the subpoenas.
The committee had requested Hicks to testify on June 19th and Donaldson on June 24th, but it appears they will not be fulfilling those requests.
