White House Communications Director Hope Hicks could be the next target in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into Trump campaign collusion with Russia.
This news comes after Friday’s bombshell that former national security adviser Michael Flynn plead guilty to lying to the FBI.
Hicks has been a staple in the president’s inner circle dating back to when he was candidate Trump.
At 28, she became the youngest White House communications director after both Sean Spicer and Anthony Scaramucci were ousted from the role in quick succession.
While she does not speak on camera often or serve as a public face of the Trump administration, she has had close and unique access to the president since the early days of his campaign.
She traveled by his side to Iowa at the beginning of the campaign and she’s outlasted veteran political operatives to maintain her position in the Trump orb.
“After Ivanka, she knows him the best in the White House,” at least one reportedly said.
Reports emerged this week that Mueller plans to interview her to learn more about the president and his inner circle as he continues his investigation into possible Russia interference in the 2016 presidential election.
