Hope Hicks returning to White House

Former Trump aide Hicks to return to White House administration official

Hicks will be working for Trump's senior adviser and son-in-law, Jared Kushner, according to one source.

Hope Hicks, formerly President Donald Trump's most trusted and longest serving aide, is expected to return to the administration in the coming weeks, sources familiar with the matter tell ABC News. Earlier in her career, she worked at PR firms Hiltzik Strategies and Zeno Group.

Following her White House departure, Hicks spent several months living in New York City, where she kept a low profile.

In her roles as communications director and director of strategic communications during the first year of the Trump administration, she oversaw the administration's communications strategy and led a team responsible for creating and coordinating key messages relating to economic issues, domestic policies and global affairs. Her testimony continued to dog her after she left the White House. Her official title will be counselor to the president.

"She was a key executive team member at the inception of Fox Corporation and throughout this important first year", Klein said in a statement obtained by TPM.

She was also called back into Washington in 2019 for House investigative hearings of the president.

The White House also blocked Hicks from turning over documents subpoenaed by the committee.

Politico's Nancy Cook suggested that Hicks was returning to the White House because the impeachment proceedings and other investigations into Trump's conduct had finally come to a close.
