White House Communications Director Hope Hicks will testify before the House Intelligence Committee Friday as part of the Russia probe, according to CBS.

Hicks, 29, is expected to answer questions related to the committee’s probe into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, CBS News reported Thursday. Hicks has been one of President Donald Trump’s closest staffers since serving as Trump’s press secretary for his campaign.

The committee has interviewed dozens of Trump’s campaign staffers. Former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon was interviewed Tuesday and former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski was interviewed Wednesday. Bannon was subpoenaed by Special Counsel Robert Mueller during his meeting with the committee. (RELATED: Report: Bannon Subpoenaed To Appear Before Mueller Grand Jury)

In early December, Mueller’s investigators interviewed Hicks. Similar to the House Intelligence Committees investigation, Mueller’s probe is also investigating Trump’s possible campaign ties to Russia, which has led to four of Trump’s campaign aides being charged for completely unrelated matters the special counsel found while digging for collusion between Trump’s campaign and Russia.

Hicks will reportedly be questioned behind closed doors.
