New Evidence Shows Ex-Trump Aide Lied To Mueller About Infamous Trump Tower Meeting


New Evidence Shows Ex-Trump Aide Lied To Mueller About Infamous Trump Tower Meeting

Mark Corallo, a GOP communications consultant that briefly served as Donald Trump’s legal spokesperson in the early days of his presidential administration, spoke with ABC News this week and revealed that former White House aide Hope Hicks lied to special counsel Robert Mueller about the infamous Trump Tower meeting that took place in 2016 for the purpose of obtaining dirt on then-candidate Hillary Clinton.

Corallo told the news outlet that not only did Hicks lie in her public statement about the infamous meeting — but also that she lied to Mueller’s investigators when they interviewed her.

“We have learned from both our own investigation and public reports that the participants in the meeting misrepresented who they were and who they worked for,” Corallo told Circa in 2017. “Specifically, we have learned that the person who sought the meeting is associated with Fusion GPS, a firm which according to public reports, was retained by Democratic operatives to develop opposition research on the President and which commissioned the phony Steele dossier.”

“[M]y phone rings and it’s Hope Hicks,” the ex-spokesman said in the 2019 ABC News interview. “So, she just started laying into me. And, then she admitted that yes, they had crafted this statement on Air Force One and that they’d handled it.”

“She said, ‘I had the New York Times handled’ and I’m going – you did? You work in the White House,” he added. “This is a private matter. This is not the president’s conduct of his office. This is matters to do with him as a private citizen, really, not even him. This has to do with his son, son-in-law, and former campaign director.”
