Why is Hope Hicks Resigning? Trump Communications Director Stepping Down After Russia Investigation Interview

Hope Hicks, one of US President Donald Trump's longest-serving aides, is resigning from her job as White House communications director.

The 29-year-old Hicks made the sudden announcement a day after she testified before a House Intelligence Committee investigating Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election.

During the nine-hour interview, Ms Hicks acknowledged that she had occasionally told "white lies" for Mr Trump, but she said she had not lied about anything relevant to the Russian Federation investigation.

Hicks, a longtime aide to President Trump, has been considering leaving the White House for months, according to The New York Times, which broke the story.

Trump lauded Hicks for her performance, saying she has done "great work" during her time at the White House.

Strong winds, rain, flooding expected to hit Boston Friday
The heaviest snow will fall in western NY into northern Pennsylvania and into western MA , where some areas could see 1 to 2 feet. According to FlightAware , there were 995 delays within, into, and out of the United States by 11:00 a.m. on Friday morning.

"She may come back in, she may not", he said, adding it will not matter in terms of Trump's re-election messaging. "I will miss having her by my side". "We are not aware of any campaign representatives that were in touch with any foreign entities before yesterday, when Mr. Trump spoke with many world leaders", Hicks said to the Times then.

But Ms Hicks has kept a remarkably low profile in the job.

One Hollywood insider told us landing Hicks would be a "huge asset" because of her recent experience dealing with huge public relations issues on a global stage.

Hicks was a constant presence at Trump's side, and was there for moments that are reportedly a source of interest in special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 campaign and possible collusion with the Trump campaign. Porter was forced to resign after his Federal Bureau of Investigation background check revealed domestic abuse allegations by two ex-wives.

But she was brutally thrust into the spotlight in early February when another top Trump aide with whom she had become romantically involved was accused of domestic abuse by an ex-wife.

Press secretary Sean Spicer partially filled the role of communications director before quitting in July, 2017 with Anthony Scaramucci on his way in. It's likely an interim communications director will be selected in the meantime.

Hope Hicks, right, stands with Kellyanne Conway during a meeting in the Oval Office. "This is a breathtakingly broad claim a privilege that I don't think any court would sustain, and I think the White House knows that".

Hicks was dating Porter at the time.

"Her departure is to be determined but it will be sometime in the next few weeks", it said. Porter was ultimately forced to resign.

Press Secretary Sarah Sanders tweeted that Hicks was "in a league of her own" and no one could fill her shoes.

It's unclear at this point who will be the next communications director. Her family was friends with the Trumps, and she was once a model for Ralph Lauren.
