(CNN)Hope Hicks has occasionally told fibs on behalf of her boss, but they only amounted to white lies, according to what little we've heard spill out after her closed-door testimony Tuesday with congressional investigators.
Little white lies could be a very big problem for Hope Hicks
She did not answer questions about her time at the White House, joining former President Donald Trump aide Steve Bannon in claiming those communications are privileged. And she was reticent at first to discuss the transition period. It's not exactly clear when the white lies may have occurred.
Hicks argued she hasn't had to lie about substantive issues for Trump, according to the source with knowledge of her Tuesday comments that spoke to CNN's Manu Raju and Jeremy Herb.
That the White House communications director should have to lie on behalf of her boss, who is a serial boaster, stretcher of the truth and documented outright fibber, should not be surprising.
