Former White House communications director Hope Hicks has agreed to turn over a wide range of documents to the House Judiciary Committee after a request for information on topics including the firing of former FBI Director James Comey, according to committee chair Jerry Nadler’s (D-NY) spokesperson.

According to a Wednesday CNN report, the request includes documents like diaries and notes about the Trump administration, organization and campaign.

Despite her promise of cooperation, it is unclear how much information Hicks will ultimately provide. When she testified to the House Intelligence Committee last year, she refused to answer many questions from the Democrats and dodged all inquiries from the period that Trump was in the White House.
