(CNN)Donald Trump Jr. told House investigators that did not communicate directly with his father when confronted with news reports about his June 2016 Trump Tower meeting, according to multiple sources with knowledge of his testimony.

Instead, Trump Jr. said he was speaking to White House aide Hope Hicks about how to respond to the reports. He said President Donald Trump, according to the sources, was debating between a longer and a shorter statement while President Trump and Hicks were aboard Air Force One.

Hicks was aboard Air Force One and was speaking with Trump while the statement was being crafted.

Separately, sources said, Trump Jr. said he could not recall some key details about the White House response.

4. I hope Hope packs "the machine" (AKA hand steamer)when she goes to prison.

She can use it to press wrinkles out of her orange jumpsuit now and not the orange moron's pants like she has been.

5. Hope Hicks will regret the decision to get close to the Trumps. She will soon be working

for Mueller and associates.

12. Isn't is remarkable...

...that some people have viewed Trump all these years and think he represents something attractive?

I've never understood it. He's ugly through and through. His taste is abysmal. He's profoundly ignorant. He's gross. He's always been a liar. He's always been a cheat. He's obnoxious. And his bigotry and nastiness know no bounds.

Far too many Americans-- and, frankly, people from other countries-- find him appealing.

I just don't get it.

18. NYers tried to warn everyone

There is very good reason he only got 15% of the vote in NYC. Those he hasn't disgusted are few and far between.

19. I, too, am a New Yorker

I've lived here since the mid 1970s and unfortunately have had to live through the Age of Trump.

He's despicable.

7. If Hicks tells the truth, she will get a good deal from Mueller

Not even worth it for her to lie. She will make plenty of money off the book and movie.

14. She has no incentive to lie to save the Trumps

Unless of course she's really in love with Donald (pausing while I retch). She's young, attractive, and has many years ahead of her. This may be the push she needs to break free. If she doesn't, she'll be yet another victim of that crime family.

telling her is like telling Dad.

10. I now just assume whenever ANYONE associated with Trump speaks, it's either a lie or coverup.

They are a most unscrupulous gang of misfits.

15. Sorry, Hope...

"Sorry, Hope. It's been nice 'knowing' you ( ::wink wink nudge nudge:: ), but family is family. Since I'm stuck with #3 because of this darn Presidency gig, it'll be a couple years before I can go for #4. And by then, well... let's just say you wouldn't be my first choice. You understand. Oh, and be a good girl and get the machine? I need some wrinkles steamed."

16. according to Lewandowski

http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/trump-corey-lewandowski-suggested-hope-hicks-looks-compensated-for-lack-of-political-savvy-during-campaign-book/article/2642681

Lewandowski wrote the book, released on Tuesday, with former deputy campaign manager David Bossie.

While the authors praised the youngest White House communications director in modern political history for being "smart" and having "nearly a photographic memory," they wrote that most of their staff "didn’t know the difference between a caucus and a cactus” before joining the trail.


so ... she better not try the "I don't remember" crapola
