BILL HEMMER (CO-ANCHOR): You had Hope Hicks before that House Judiciary Committee hearing yesterday behind closed doors. I don't know if much came from this but it appears, based on Democratic reaction after the hearing, that they're headed to court on this matter and probably a few other things.

DAN HENNINGER (FOX NEWS CONTRIBUTOR): Inevitably they're probably headed to court, that's where these things usually go. But nonetheless I think what the House Democrats are also doing, at least some of them, are trying to push Nancy Pelosi towards agreeing to impeachment hearings. This is a political project of theirs. They want to tee up the Trump presidency as impeachable. They want to convey to the American people that it was an illegitimate presidency. The Russian collusion narrative failed and now this is plan B as the president has said. But as a legal matter there is no reason why any of these White House officials have to testify before those committees and undoubtedly this is going to court.
