This is pretty great way for Hope Hicks to start to testify before Congress: Hope Hicks Acknowledges She Sometimes Tells White Lies for Trump
“Hope Hicks, the White House communications director, told House investigators on Tuesday that her work for President Trump, who has a reputation for exaggerations and outright falsehoods, had occasionally required her to tell white lies. But after extended consultation with her lawyers, she insisted that she had not lied about matters material to the investigations into Russia’s interference in the 2016 presidential election and possible links to Trump associates, according to three people familiar with her testimony.”
Hope, a white lie would be telling Elmira Gantry Huckabee-Sanders that her tablecloth/shower curtain ensemble looks good on her. We don’t know what those white lies are yet, but I suspect we will someday, probably soon.
The other big dealio is that Hicks didn’t answer Congress’ questions (which we hope were about the banging-good time she had with Rob Porter and Corey Lewandowski). Like the good German, Hicks said she was only following orders.
And of course no one knows if Prznint Stupid ordered her to invoke executive privilege, which I think he must do for her to makevalid a claim of Executive Privilege (something that does not exist in the user’s guide, er, the Constitution). In theory, Congress can hold Hicks in contempt of Congress, but that requires Zombie-eyed Granny-starver Paul Ryan to sign off, and that just made me giggle. Ryan holds contempt for We the People, not for Congress.
