During a closed-door interview with the House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday, former White House Communications Director Hope Hicks told lawmakers that she only told “white lies” on President Trump’s behalf—and only on smallest of matters. Wow, what a relief!
CNN reports that Hicks said she had “never been asked to lie about matters of substance or consequence” during her White House tenure. And when asked if President Trump ever asked his staff to lie during the campaign, Hicks replied, “Not that I can recall.”
Aiding Hicks in her silence were the two private layers, three White House lawyers, and one Justice Department lawyer who flanked her during her testimony and blocked 155 questions directed towards her.
There was virtually no new information gleaned during the eight-hour long interview, but we did learn that if given the option, Hicks would do it all over again!
Hicks said she would still have gone to work for the Trump team if she had known about “the hell that (she) would be put through.” Responding to a question from Republican Rep. Louie Gohmert, Hicks said “I’m extremely grateful for the opportunity I had to serve, and, yes, I would do it all over again.”
An absolute madwoman.
