White House communications director Hope Hicks, one of six White House aides special counsel Robert Mueller is expected to interview as part of his probe into the ongoing Russia investigation, has hired a private attorney.

Robert Trout, founder of the firm Trout, Cacheris & Janis, will represent Hicks, 28, multiple sources familiar with the hire reported to Politico on Friday. Trout is a former U.S. attorney from Baltimore and a Justice Department veteran.

On Friday, The Washington Post named Hicks as one of the aides Mueller expects to interview, as his team believes the aides may have witnessed activities being examined in the Russia investigation.

Hicks has been with President Donald Trump since before he officially launched his presidential campaign, but was only recently promoted to the position of communications director.

According to White House sources, Hicks knows that her role in the 2016 campaign and her status as confidante of Trump and his family make her a potential key witness.
