Greenwich's Hope Hicks Focus Of Trump-Russia Probe

Hope Hick's unflinching loyalty and silence have secured her a prominent place in Donald Trump’s ever-changing orbit.

But that access to the president — the Oval Office is one door down from hers — could come at a prohibitive legal cost for the 29-year-old White House communication director from Greenwich.

Hicks, Trump’s gatekeeper during the campaign -- whom some call his "real daughter" --- is now at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave., and the focus of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election, the New York Times reported here on Wednesday.

Hicks assured Trump during a conference call that potentially damaging emails written by Donald Trump Jr. about a Trump Tower meeting with the Russians “will never get out,” the Times reported.

Before joining Trump's 2016 campaign, Hicks had no political experience. She was born in Greenwich, a town of 60,000 on the southwest tip of Connecticut that's a favorite spot for hedge-fund headquarters. She was a model, actress, and lacrosse player as a child, before getting her English degree at Southern Methodist University.

Hicks didn't intend on playing such a large role in a presidential campaign, instead falling into the gig through a job at the Trump Organization. Now, she's the youngest White House communications director in history.
