The Hill reports:
Hope Hicks, a longtime aide to President Trump, will become the new White House communications director, NBC News reported on air early Tuesday. Hicks, who is Trump’s director of strategic communications, had been appointed last month to serve as interim White House communications director after the firing of Anthony Scaramucci. Unlike other Trump aides, Hicks does not appear on cable news representing the president.
Last week it was reported that Hicks has lawyered up in the Russia probe.
