Hope Hicks expected to return to White House
By Kaitlan Collins and Jim Acosta, CNN
February 13, 2020

Washington (CNN) - President Donald Trump's former communications
director Hope Hicks -- one of his most influential confidantes and a
longtime loyalist -- is expected to return to the White House in an
adviser role, a White House official confirmed to CNN.

She will return to an administration gearing up for reelection and
serve a President freshly intent on ridding his team of aides he views
as disloyal.

Long seen as a stabilizing force on a boss who likes chaos, Hicks will
be "working closely" with Trump's senior adviser and son-in-law, Jared
Kushner, as well as White House political director, Brian Jack, the
official said.

She won't be returning to the communications department, the official said.

Her official title will be counselor to the President, two people
familiar with the move told CNN.

"There is no one more devoted to implementing President Trump's agenda
than Hope Hicks. We are excited to have her back on the team," Kushner
said in a statement.

White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham added in a statement that
she's "beyond thrilled to welcome Hope back to the White House."

Her return to the executive branch has been under consideration for a
while, though it has been unclear, initially, if she would come back
before the 2020 presidential election, one source said.

The Hicks news was announced as Trump -- emboldened after being
acquitted by the Senate in his impeachment trial -- moves to dismiss
officials he regards as working against his agenda.

Bloomberg first reported Hicks' return to the White House.

Hicks resigned from her role as communications director in 2018, a day
after she told lawmakers in closed-door testimony that she had told
white lies in the course of her duties.

The panel interviewed Hicks about any knowledge she has of contacts
that occurred between other Trump associates and Russians.

Hicks appeared to have firsthand knowledge of a number of key events
that shaped the first year of the Trump White House, including being on
Air Force One when the initial misleading statement about Donald Trump
Jr.'s meeting with Russians was crafted.

Her departure also came in the wake of a scandal involving former
senior aide Rob Porter, whose public defense Hicks helped craft while
also dating him at the time.

Porter resigned in disgrace after two of his ex-wives publicly accused
him of domestic abuse.

Following her departure, she worked as the chief communications officer
at Fox Corporation, the parent company of Fox News.
She was once the recipient of Trump's repeated phone calls, the witness
to his angriest moments, and according to other campaign aides, the
person who steamed wrinkles out of his pants. Hicks was also one of the
few trusted aides who was often spotted in the White House residence.

But her relationship with Trump shifted dramatically after she left the
White House.

While testifying last June, Hicks told lawmakers she has only spoken to
Trump between five and 10 times since she left the White House.

However, Hicks remained in close contact with Kushner and other top
White House aides.

A onetime model, Hicks joined the Trump Organization working in public
relations with Ivanka Trump and moved to Trump's presidential campaign
early in the race. She remained one of the few aides to follow him from
his political beginnings to the White House.

Hicks maintained a close relationship not just with the President --
who called her "Hopey" -- but with members of his family, including
Ivanka Trump and Kushner.

At the White House, Hicks carried out her previous communications role
barely uttering a single word in public -- no television interviews and
only a few scattered appearances at microphones alongside Trump.

Trump's fresh attempts at finding loyalists for key White House
positions has also extended to his longtime personal aide John McEntee,
who has been tapped to head up the presidential personnel office at the
White House, according to an administration official.

McEntee recently rejoined the White House more than a year after he was
forced out over a security clearance issue by then-White House chief of
staff John Kelly.

In the new role, McEntee will be responsible for vetting and hiring
candidates to work in the White House and in top roles throughout the
administration.

The move is part of an effort by the President to reinstate longtime
loyalists to key positions in his administration.

Trump lashed out at Kelly on Twitter on Thursday, claiming his onetime
top aide was "way over his head" in the role after Kelly publicly
rebuked some of Trump's positions.

Ivanka gets a White House office because
she is an "advisor".

Jered Kushner gets a White House office
because he is an "advisor".

Don Jr gets a White House office because
he is an "advisor"

All to a president who brags that he
doesn't need advice.

Sheesh.................

Sheesh.................
Hope Hicks..."advisor" or Presidential Poon-Tang?

...scratch out the words "need advice" and replace with "take advice".

The impeached grafter listens to no one...the only way to understand Trump is to
use the same 'Captain Midnight Decoder Ring' he uses!
