Comm Director Abruptly Resigns After Admitting She Lies For Trump, White House In Shambles

Hope Hicks, the White House communications director and one of Donald Trump’s longest-serving advisers, abruptly announced her resignation on Wednesday just one day after she was interviewed by the House Intelligence Committee and admitted that she sometimes tells “white lies” for the so-called president, according to the New York Times.

During her 8-hour testimony before the House Intelligence Committee, Hicks said that in her job, she has occasionally been required to tell “white lies” in her official capacity but said that she had never lied about anything connected to the investigation into Russia’s interference in the 2016 presidential election.

Hicks said that she had “no words” to express her gratitude to Trump, who in turn, released a statement.

“Hope is outstanding and has done great work for the last three years,” Trump said. “She is as smart and thoughtful as they come, a truly great person. I will miss having her by my side, but when she approached me about pursuing other opportunities, I totally understood. I am sure we will work together again in the future.”

Hicks is the fourth person to serve as communications director in the Trump administration, and she did not reveal what job she plans to take on next. She will likely exit the White House in the next few weeks.

At this point, we can only speculate as to why Hicks is resigning but she is on special counsel Robert Mueller’s radar and that’s not a good place to be after so many indictments have been handed down. She did admit to lying and in an official capacity. And if she lied to Mueller, then she’s toast. She’s only 29-years-old and she tied herself to the most chaotic and corrupt administration in history.

Job options for Ms. Hicks: work in the prison cafeteria. Or, after she makes a plea deal with Mueller, she can start a reality show with Omarosa.
