An Addendum: Hope Hicks

Ms. Hicks’ departure has made me reflect on her in a way that I hadn’t when I posted the last piece.  Given her continuous close physical proximity to the President from the beginning of the campaign through now, and her obvious great affection for him (and his for her), any evidence she would present regarding his activities would seemingly have great weight with a jury.  Since Ms. Hicks is younger than my youngest child, it would be my advice to her not only as a lawyer but also as a father:  You’re 29.  You’ll likely live 50 years after the President dies.  Don’t let this ruin your life as Monica Lewinsky’s life has been irreparably harmed.  Tell Mueller’s people everything you know.  You certainly seem likely to be characterized as a witness to, rather than an actor in, whatever went on, so if you play it straight, you will probably walk away from this with no legal ramifications and plenty of opportunities.  If you don’t, there’s a better than even chance you’ll end up bitterly regretting it for the rest of your life …
