Mueller Zeroes In On Trump Tower Coverup [VIDEO]

The Daily Beast reports:

Mark Corallo, the former spokesman for President Donald Trump’s legal team, will reportedly tell special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigators that White House Communications Director Hope Hicks said Donald Trump Jr.’s emails about the June 2016 Trump Tower meeting with Russians “will never get out.”

According to The New York Times, Corallo was concerned that Hicks “could be contemplating obstructing justice.” Those emails, written by Trump Jr., appeared to show that his initial explanation for why he took the meeting with Russians was false.

The emails showed that Trump Jr. accepted the meeting after being promised dirt on Hillary Clinton, even though the White House statement said the meeting centered around Russian adoptions.

    This is what happens when you put the average 27 y/o in charge of communications for a presidential campaign. “The best people,” riiight. She’s pretty and loyal to him, though.

    • And undoubtedly swallows.

      • Joe in PA

        Do not malign “swallowers”. Ahem.

  • Ragnar Lothbrok

    Anyone else think she has some psychotic crush on DT ?

    • Gil

      daddy issues…

    • The_Wretched

      Eastern European re-education.

    • Lori

      I assume she’s the subject of Wolf’s story, which he says isn’t in “Fire & Fury” only because he couldn’t get ironclad proof, that Trump is having an affair with someone in his administration.

      • Ragnar Lothbrok

        My belief too.

        Especially since she was reported to run out of the room in tears after Donald said she was the prob the ” best piece of ass ” that Lewindoski ( Cory ) has ever had.

      • Chuck in NYC

        I thought it was far more likely to be her than Nikki Haley, that’s for sure.

        • Lori

          Haley is both too old and not white enough for the Donald. I would be shocked if it was her.

  • crewman

    I think people have sympathy for Hope Hicks because she is young and pretty, and it’s easy to imagine her as a victim. I have no pity for her. She chose to invest her life’s time in that bed of vipers. If she was truly naive, as sympathizers say, she should have run shocked from the job when she realized what it was. Instead, we now learn, she was an active, willful participant in the crimes.

    • Gerry Fisher

      No pity, here. She was old enough to recognize racism, sexism, and a leering old man.

      • Proud MOFO Beaner (bkb)

        Maybe I can find pity when her head is in the noose along with the rest of these criminals

    • Gustav2

      She started doing PR work for the Trumps while at Hiltzik Strategies in 2012. She then joined the Trump organization in 2014.

      Ms Hicks knew what she was getting into.

      • Chucktech

        I’m not entirely sure she did. Tough shit for her.

    • another_steve

      I heard a political commentator say last night that of all of Trump’s appointees, she’s perhaps the most inexperienced and unqualified.

      As if you choose a person on the streets, randomly, and give that person a White House job.

      • Butch

        Perhaps the most inexperienced and unqualified, and unfortunately you’re starting out with a very low bar.

        • David Walker

          I think 45 is the truly “inexperienced and unqualified.”

      • Chucktech

        But Donnie thinks she’s at least a 9, so there ya go.

      • Hank

        Perhaps being a NY Wedding Planer gives one MORE experience for a job!

    • Todd20036

      You missed the elephant in the room.
      Hope is white. Not brown, not black, but white. and pretty. and white.
      Did I mention she was white?

    • BearEyes

      I expect there is some of that.
      Years ago, my manager and I were doing a project for a local university. He got all hot and bothered by one secretary. I tried to explain to him she was not really competent. Finally, I had to say. Al, think with your other head. He looked at me funny for a bit and the lightbulb clicked on. He said I was right since I’m gay and not distracted by her looks.
      We still keep in touch.

  • Chris

    24? the stress of the job is clearly taking a toll

    • Gil

      How sexist and unkind !! She could easily pass for a 35ish mother of two….

  • Gil

    Poor naive lamb is in deep doodoo and will run up legal bills which will haunt her for a long time…Unless daddy Trump pays them …..Or her daddy….

    • kareemachan

      drumpster never pays anything. Bummer, hope.

  • another_steve

    All eyes now on Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein of the Justice Department. The pundits agree that if Trump fires him, it’ll be a prelude to Mueller’s firing.

    Popcorn please.

    • Sam_Handwich

      i keep thinking something big will go down around 7:00 sunday during the stupid bowl

      • another_steve

        Hubby and I are in a Superbowl pool.

        He watches the game every year, but I’m a fairy and don’t.

        • Sam_Handwich

          my hubs watches too. i just hate football

          sometimes we get roped into a attending party. people yelling at the TV, “buffalo chicken dip”, etc

          • another_steve

            The hunks wear too much uniform in football.

            Boring.

          • 2guysnamedjoe

            I don’t like those costumes, either.

          • another_steve
          • Joe in PA

            “buffalo chicken dip”? Go big or go home I guess, eh?

            We’re going with champagne popsicles this year.

          • another_steve

            Ooh… champagne popsicles. Yum.

            I hope and trust you won’t be sharing them with any heterosexuals.

          • Joe in PA

            Gasp!

          • easygoingmister

            I’ve never made just champagne popsicles, but I do have a recipe for French 75 pops:

            12 oz. of champagne
            4 oz. of gin
            4 oz. of simple syrup
            3 oz. of fresh lemon juice

            My fav in the summer is watermelon mint tequila pops.

          • Gil

            It’s a religion…I would be just as resentful if someone dragged me to some church service….

        • skyweaver

          Even when I stopped watching it years ago it was just hours and hours and hours of not-football followed by some football

        • JCF

          I watch Puppy Bowl! <3<3 [I do watch some of the halftime shows, like last year's w/ Gaga.] I want to say I'm over the NFL—but I know there's a chance if the Forty-Niners are ever good again, I could slip…

    • 2guysnamedjoe

      Millions in the streets, please. Shut down the drümpf machine.

    This is why amateurs should never engage in criminal activity, they fold when the heat is on.

  • Proud MOFO Beaner (bkb)

    Lots of hand wringing about Hope Hicks on Twitter. “Poor young woman who made a mistake and caught up.” This woman is almost 30. When I was that age I had been a practicing lawyer for three years. She had agency and continues to. She can understand concepts such as “obstruction of justice” and the “rule of law.” She is not a victim of this conspiracy but complicit in it.

    • kareemachan

      Well, *maybe* playing the “po, po, pitiful me” card will work for her.

      As an actual mature woman, I hope not. I hate that shit.

      • Galvestonian

        Waaaal, now jest wait a minnit …little ‘ol Ms Hicks maybee jest getting boinked by the Hair Furor so that’s a git outta jail free card … of course that’s jest a ruumer.

    • Gustav2

      She has worked in PR since she left modeling. So she is a paid liar.

      • Chucktech

        Thank you. And as I was going to point out, she’s yet another of Trump’s circle who is so far out of her league she doesn’t whether to shit of wind her watch. Trump liked her because, of course, she’s attractive.

    • olandp

      You can’t blame a young innocent 30 year old woman, she is basically a child. I mean it isn’t like she is some 14 year old Alabama Jezebel out seducing wealthy powerful men. /s

      • JCF

        Or some 3 year old Mexican, who should know BLOODY WELL not to let her CRIMINAL parents drag her across the U.S. border! /s

    • 2patricius2

      “How can a women who is under 30 possibly be seen as anything other than a naif?” It’s an infantilization of women, as though women of that age are clueless, immature, and little more than girls who are not expected to be intelligent, mature, and competent. The fact is that a lot of women that age are much more mature than men of that age.

    • dknyc

      she wore a “$798 pair of boots” to Davos. I would say flaunted. she’s definitely not hurting for selling her soul.

      How is it that someone can “star” in a commercial when they don’t have any lines, but other actors do?

    • JCF

      Dayum, I thought I remembered all the Aflac ads—not this one!

  • Rex

    It was about Russian adoption – adopting Russia’s help to collude to win the election.

  • IAMBOWLINGGREEN
  • Butch

    At point in Fire and Fury Trump refers to Hicks – TO HER FACE – as a “piece of tail.” That she puts up with it says something about her, and it ain’t good.

    • It tells me she has little self esteem, and believes she isn’t as worthy of respect as others.

  • Michael

    I’ve never seen a woman wear 10 pounds of make-up like she does….

    • Joe in PA

      That’s 10 lbs less than the others in the WH.

      She learned from the best…..Ivanka….

      “Trump makes GWB sound like Aristotle”. JemW

  • Natty Enquirer
  • The_Wretched

    “Russian adoptions” is code for Magnitsky Act which has financial implications for rich Russians and Putin personally.

      Which (obstruction of trumprussia) is literally the #1 issue for DJT since he took office.

    • Joe in PA

      Keep talking big guy, keep talking.

      • JCF

        THIS.

    • Gustav2

      He is getting ahead of the BS game having his friends “leak” this.

      You know, when my “friends” leak info about me and it becomes general knowledge…those friends are at the very least off the Christmas Card list.

    • 2guysnamedjoe

      The committee Democrats prepared their own memo, right? What’s to keep them from making it public?

  • Rebecca Gardner
    • prixator

      Try saying that headline a few times (after a couple of drinks).

      Hope Hinks Shits Stinks it came down to.

  • Silver Badger

    Mueller needs to fish or cut bait. I was going to say shit or get off the pot, but that’s tacky.

    • Boreal

      Agreed. The longer he waits, the more likely trump will derail the investigation.

      • skyweaver

        I get the sense he’s working pretty hard. And if you rush it even Trump’s seemingly-inept lawyers will find a loophole

  • Gigi

    Knowing full well what Trump is like, Hicks willingly went to work for him. She can pound salt for all I care.

    • Gil

      you play, you pay….

  • Nic Peterson

    Hurry, Bobby Three Sticks!

  • HKDaniel

    The one that definitely has those emails is, of course, Putin, as he was the addressee. Now he has a gift-wrapped piece of leverage with no piss-play video required.

    Way to go, Donnie.

    • 2guysnamedjoe

      “But that’s impossible!” cried little Donny Brylcreem. “I bcc-ed Putin so that no one would ever know!”

  • Paula

    I’d really like to see Hope Hicks convicted of something. The girls in prison would really like her a lot. When she gets out she can tell the grandkids about her time of being Gay for the stay.

    • ECarpenter

      Rape jokes? Really? You think rape is funny, Paula?

      • Bride of Trump

        Is it snowing, snowflake?

      • Paula

        It is not a rape joke. This is a women’s prison. I’ve read that many of the inmates form pairs in prison. I believe the rapes happen in men’s prisons more often.

        • yes b’y

          You can do what I do Paula and just tell ECarpenter to fuck off.

          • Paula

            😀👍

    We all know Ho Hope is fucking cheeto benito

    • MatthewMidbury

      You are my hope.

  • ECarpenter

    There’s really no justification for being happy about this, Pence is waiting in the wings to take over, and he’s as evil as Trump.

    • M Jackson

      One at a time until you get to the end.

    • Chuck in NYC

      If the polls this summer are indicating a wipeout of GOP candidates, the Republican leaders may finally try to force Trump out to get Pence installed by September or October to stanch the bleeding. I don’t really see them acting any time sooner, at least as of today.

  • There was a time when you really could destroy evidence. A handwritten letter could be burned. Poof. Gone forever. But an email? LOL If I send Joe an email, it’s still on my email account’s server as well as his even if both of us delete the email. It’s not gone. This has come up countless times in cases where someone deleted an email they later needed to prove a history of say sexual harassment. The IT department didn’t delete it and even if they had it might not be fully deleted. There are people who are experts at retrieving data. The Trump people are not smart enough to have removed every digital trace of Jr’s emails. I’m not sure anyone is except for a few experts in that field.

      Could she possibly be that desperate or determined?

    Whatever may befall her, I have no sympathy. She joined the ranks of the dirtbag’s campaign.
