Trump also lashed out at House Democrats earlier Wednesday in a similar string of tweets. 

Hicks, Trump's former communications director, declined to answer questions about her time in the Trump administration during the hearing. 

Hicks was mentioned more than 180 times in special counsel Robert Muller's report and is seen as a key witness in the investigation into Trump's potential obstruction of justice. 

The special counsel's report does not exonerate Trump.

In a May news conference, Mueller said, "If we had confidence that the president clearly did not commit a crime, we would have said so."
