President Trump’s lawyers “have urged him not to discuss details of the unfolding Russia investigation with people outside his legal team, warning of a conversational ‘bright line’ that could place aides and associates in legal jeopardy,” Politico reports.
“But Trump often ignores that legal advice in the presence of senior aides — including his departing confidante and White House communications director, Hicks.”
Said a senior administration official: “I think the president has put her in a very precarious position.”
“Hicks is not alone. Current and former Trump aides describe a president who often fails to observe boundaries about the Russia probe and who calls staffers into his office and raises the subject without warning.”Save to Favorites
