Special Counsel Robert Mueller plans to interview Mark Corallo, a former spokesman for Trump’s legal team. Corallo is expected to testify that Hope Hicks may have been planning to obstruct justice.
Hicks is the current White House communications director and Trump’s rumored girlfriend.
Hicks had no political experience or interest in politics before joining the Trump administration. However, she is said to be the highest paid. Trump has nicknames for her such as ‘hopie’ and ‘hopester.’ Trump also paid for her apartment during the campaign. These and other circumstances caused many to speculate that she is Trump’s mistress.

Corallo resigned from his position last summer and is expected to tell Mueller about an undisclosed phone call between Trump and Hicks. The phone call had taken place after Trump Jr. met with the Russian lawyer at Trump Tower in 2016.
He plans to bring up the fact that Hicks claimed the emails about Trump Jr’s meeting with the Russian lawyer “will never get out.”
It is reported Corallo was concerned by her comments and thought she was either being naive or indicating that the emails could be kept secret from Mueller’s team.
Hicks’ lawyer denied that she ever made those comments alleged by Corallo.
Robert Trout, Hicks’ lawyer, stated, “As most reporters know, it’s not my practice to comment in response to questions from the media. But this warrants a response. She never said that. And the idea that Hope Hicks ever suggested that emails or other documents would be concealed or destroyed is completely false.”
The White House has yet to comment.
