Benjamin Netanyahu to meet with Donald Trump 2 weeks before Israel's election

Washington Capitals' Alex Ovechkin celebrates his power play goal during the second period of an NHL hockey game against the Philadelphia Flyers Wednesday

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will visit Washington next week to discuss "shared interests and actions in the Middle East" with President Trump, the White House announced Wednesday. The panel asked recipients to respond to the requests by March 18.

Earlier this month, the judiciary committee revealed that it requested documents from 81 individuals, government agencies and entities.

During the interview, Hicks acknowledged that she had occasionally told "white lies" for Trump but said she hadn't lied about anything relevant to the Russian Federation investigation.

Hicks' cooperation comes in stark contrast to former White House chief of staff John Kelly, who is facing an array of questions from the House Oversight Committee over his role in the White House security clearance process.


Hicks played a key role in Trump's 2016 campaign and served as the administration's communications director from August 2017 to March 2018. Although Republicans claim that only eight had complied by the deadline, Democrats have hinted that more have said they will provide information at a later date. The George W. Bush White House gave us more than 20,000 pages relating to Hurricane Katrina, numerous documents and witnesses relating to the leak of covert Central Intelligence Agency agent Valerie Plame's identity, and almost 1,500 pages of emails between senior White House officials about the death of Pat Tillman.

American Media, Inc., the parent company of The National Enquirer, has also agreed to turn over documents to the committee, a spokesperson confirmed. He also cited the committee's investigation into hush money payments Michael Cohen made to alleged Trump paramours, for which the White House has only allowed the committee to read - and not take with it - 30 pages that are either heavily redacted or already public.

Netanyahu, who has enjoyed a close relationship with Trump, contends that left-wing Israelis are conspiring to oust him because they can't beat him at the ballot box.

Others, like former White House counsel Don McGahn, are referring their inquiries from the committee to the White House.
