Hope Hicks, a longtime confidante to President Trump, is returning to the White House roughly two years after leaving. Hicks, who had no political experience before joining Trump’s 2016 campaign, served as a top communications aide before moving on to take a job at Fox Corporation. Hicks enjoyed working her new job but is rejoining the White House out of a sense of duty, CBS News reported, citing a source close to Hicks. She will be working with Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser, Jared Kushner, and political director Brian Jack, not back in the communications department. Hicks testified to Congress during former Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation and said she told some “white lies” to defend Trump. [CBS News]
