Who is sarah hicks dating
"He is a friend, a confidante, and a trusted professional.
I am proud to serve alongside him." After the story was published, Kelly's statement raised eyebrows for its full-throated support of a man accused of physically and emotionally abusing two former wives. Hope Hicks, the White House communications director, helped draft the statement, people familiar with the matter told CNN.
As the Daily Mail was preparing to publish an article on Tuesday detailing allegations of domestic abuse against Rob Porter, the White House staff secretary, John Kelly gave the British news outlet an odd statement singing Porter's praises.
"Rob Porter is a man of true integrity and honor, and I can't say enough good things about him," said the statement from Kelly, the White House chief of staff.
Hicks had come under fire recently regarding the Russia investigation and the White House's expressing support for a staff member accused of spousal abuse.
The Times reported last month that Mark Corallo, a former spokesman for the president's legal team, planned to tell Robert Mueller, the special counsel investigating Russia's election interference, about a previously undisclosed phone call involving Trump and Hicks.
Ms Hicks was caught up in a controversy surrounding former White House staff secretary Rob Porter, whom she had been dating.
She worked to defend him when charges of domestic abuse against his two former wives emerged.
White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said the timeline for Ms Hicks' departure was unclear and that it was not related to her testimony to a congressional committee on Tuesday (local time) about a probe into 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 Russia investigation.
She said in a statement: "There are no words to adequately express my gratitude to President Trump.Tags: Adult Dating, affair dating, sex dating
