Everyone and anyone who would work for a racist conman like Trump would have to be a racist and/or a criminal like he and his entire family are.  Hope Hicks, who was recently named interim White House communications director, has reportedly hired an attorney amid the ongoing Russia-related investigation.   According to Politico, the 28-year-old has retained the services of lawyer Robert Trout whose well-respected background includes time in the Justice Department.
The move comes on the heels of a Washington Post report from Friday which notes Hicks is one of six current and former Trump administration officials special counsel Robert Mueller’s team is interested in speaking with about Russia’s efforts to sway the U.S. election.
The Post says, based on inside sources, that members of this group are of particular interest to the Mueller probe because they were likely present during White House discussions about former FBI director James Comey and former national security adviser Michael Flynn.
