JUST IN: Former Trump Aide Hope Hicks to Testify in Hush Money Trial

Hope Hicks, who was once a devoted member of former President Donald Trump’s staff, is expected to testify for the prosecution in Trump’s hush money case coming up this month, NBC News reported on Monday. Hicks was interviewed last year

Hope Hicks, who used to be a loyal member of former President Donald Trump’s team, is expected to give evidence for the prosecution in Trump’s hush money case happening this month, according to NBC News reported on Monday.

Hicks was questioned last year by the Manhattan district attorney’s office during their investigation into the case that claims Trump altered business records to hide a $130,000 hush money payment to Stormy Daniels. Hicks also gave incriminating testimony against her former boss for the January 6 Committee, during which it was revealed that she did not believe the former president’s lies about the 2020 election being stolen. She left Trump’s administration after the January 6 insurrection.

MSNBC had the breaking news coverage on Monday about Hicks’ upcoming testimony, referencing “a source with direct knowledge of the situation.” NBC News’ Vaughn Hillyard provided some context:

Hope Hicks, she would, per a federal court records, dating back to Michael Cohen when he pleaded guilty, he contended at the time that there is a phone call in which she latched not only Michael Cohen, but with Donald Trump together. And so there’s questions about on October 8, 2016, the day that Stormy Daniels came forward to the National Enquirer and said that she was ready to share her story, but could potentially all but be paid off. That there were conversations that Hope Hicks was allegedly a part of. And then we also know she was on another phone call later that month, on the actual day that Michael Cohen agreed to pay that $130,000 to American Media. So the question is, does Hope Hicks have testimony to provide about the extent to which Donald Trump was signing off, specifically on those payments?
