Hope Hicks resigning as top Trump aide - White House

Hope Hicks will resign as White House communications director New York Times

The White House announced Hicks, 29, was leaving a day after she spent nine hours in a closed hearing of theHouse of Representatives Intelligence Committee on its investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 United States presidential election. We knew a LOT about him even before he descended down that escalator at Trump Tower on that fateful day in June of 2015. "She had informed a very small number of people prior to Hill hearing that she planned to leave", Haberman wrote on Twitter. The official also denied Kelly had anything to do with Scaramucci not getting into the event at Davos with Trump, or that Kelly was allowing any personal dispute between the men to affect the CFIUS review. "Everybody has an opportunity and right to change their staff, particularly, when they're chief of staff". Among them are Jared Kushner, Trump's son-in-law and senior adviser. Forget the fact that the White House receives 93 percent negative news coverage, whatever the latest poll was.

The president has attacked Sessions before, apparently because he is mad that the attorney general recused himself from overseeing the Russian Federation investigation.

Without the likes of Hicks to rein him in, we are likely headed into an even more chaotic moment for Trump.

During the election campaign, Ms Hicks served as press secretary.

Well, White House spokesperson Sarah Sanders told reporters that Hicks' decision to quit is not related to her appearance before the panel. Meanwhile according to the report, Hicks is reported to have admitted to the panel that she had occasionally told what amounted to "white lies" for Trump.

Hicks had always been dogged by reports that she played a role in crafting the misleading first statement about Donald Trump Jr.

President Donald Trump has, throughout his life, embraced chaos as a life philosophy.

"There are no words to adequately express my gratitude to President Trump", she said. She is strategic, poised and wise beyond her years. He left after 11 days.

Before dating Porter, Hope Hicks reportedly dated Trump's former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski, although he was still married to his wife at the time.

"Surround yourself with the best people you can find, delegate authority, and don't interfere as long as the policy you've decided upon is being carried out, " he reportedly said. That could spell a potential return from Elba for Miller, who is now the managing director for the Washington DC office at Teneo, a global strategic communications firm. The left-driven social media was less charitable with cartoons showing her with a long nose under captions such as Hope Hicks sinks ships and #whitelies are the new #alternativefacts, a reference to the dissembling that is said to characterize the Trump White House.

The resignation also came weeks after the sudden departure of former Staff Secretary Rob Porter, who left the White House after reports that two ex-wives had accused him of domestic violence in background interviews with the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Mr Spicer worked in the role for just two months before Mike Dubke took over. Kelly reportedly knew that Porter was working under an interim security clearance as the FBI investigated the allegations of abuse, but the White House denies those reports.

White House Chief of Staff John Kelly looks on during an event to mark the 15th anniversary of the Department of Homeland Security, March 1, 2018, in Washington, D.C.

"She knew what the president wanted and could explain it to the communications [team]", the official said. "The other is a guy called Stephen Miller who was, as Bannon said 'he's my typist!' So these are now the pillars of American politics".

The source added that the White House was a less complex emotional endeavor for Raffel, a Democrat who entered with a specific set of responsibilities.

On Wednesday, he used Twitter to disparage Attorney General Jeff Sessions, bemoaning the overly meek response to what he argues is the real scandal: an abusive use of surveillance by law enforcement which he said helped start the whole Russian Federation scandal.
