Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Sunday, September 10, 2017

White House communications director Hope Hicks has retained a personal attorney, as the special counsel's investigation into the Trump campaign's ties to Russia is expected to heat up this fall. Hicks, 28, has hired Robert Trout, a highly regarded attorney and founder of the firm Trout Cacheris & Janis, according to multiple sources familiar with the hire. Trout is a veteran of the Justice Department. He is also a former assistant U.S. attorney in Baltimore. The Washington Post on Friday reported that Hicks is one of six White House aides that special counsel Robert Mueller is expected to interview -- aides who his team believes were potentially witnesses to relevant moments in the ongoing Russia investigation. Hicks, who was recently elevated to the position of communications director, has been at President Donald Trump's side since before the official launch of his campaign.

Will it be German to ask Hicks if she sleeps with Trump?

President Trump's former chief of staff Reince Priebus and White House counsel Don McGahn have reportedly both hired a lawyer amid the investigation into Russian election meddling.

The two hired William Burck, a partner at Quinn Emanuel Urquhart & Sullivan LLP, Law360 reported.

Burck will advise Priebus and McGahn in the special counsel investigation into the Russian election meddling.

President Trump's former chief of staff Reince Priebus and White House counsel Don McGahn have reportedly both hired a lawyer amid the investigation into Russian election meddling.

The two hired William Burck, a partner at Quinn Emanuel Urquhart & Sullivan LLP, Law360 reported.

Burck will advise Priebus and McGahn in the special counsel investigation into the Russian election meddling.

The news comes after a recent report that special counsel Robert Mueller told the White House his team will seek to interview six senior and former aides to Trump as part of the federal investigation into the Russian election meddling and possible Trump campaign involvement.

Those aides include Priebus and McGahn, in addition to former White House press secretary Sean Spicer and Trump's adviser and interim communications director Hope Hicks.

McGahn will reportedly be questioned about Trump's firing earlier this year of FBI Director James Comey, according to Law360.

Priebus will be asked about any details he knows surrounding Donald Trump Jr.'s meeting last June with a Russian lawyer, according to the publication.

In the past, President Trump and his aides have repeatedly denied collusion and the president has dismissed the Russia investigation as a witch hunt.


As Churchill might've said, "Some witch...some hunt."

She's kinda hot! Yes, someone can be hot and be stupid or be a criminal at the same time.

I'm just saying she is smokin'. She'll be a big hit at the women's prison.

I thought sucking the president's **** was political; not criminal. Why does she need a lawyer? Is it because she's an employee and not an intern?
