Former White House communications director Hope Hicks told the House Intelligence Committee last week that one of her email accounts was hacked, according to people who were present for her testimony in the panel’s Russia probe. According to sources who spoke on the condition of anonymity, Hicks indicated that she could no longer access two accounts: one that she used as a member of President Donald Trump’s campaign team, and a personal account. Hicks told lawmakers that one of the accounts was hacked, according to two sources who were in the room. Hicks’ correspondence has been a subject of interest for Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who is running a probe into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, as well as possible obstruction of justice by Trump associates.
