Priebus, McGahn Hire Quinn Emanuel In Mueller Probe

Priebus, McGahn Hire Quinn Emanuel In Mueller Probe”

Hicks was among several close aides to President Donald Trump who were under closer scrutiny amid special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation of the Trump campaign's ties to Russian Federation during the 2016 election.

The two hired William Burck, a partner at Quinn Emanuel Urquhart & Sullivan LLP, Law360 reported.

Those aides include Priebus and McGahn, in addition to former White House press secretary Sean Spicer and Trump's adviser and interim communications director Hope Hicks.

Special counsel Robert Mueller's team is planning to interview up to a dozen White House aides in the coming weeks, according to people familiar with the investigation, but no request has yet been made to question President Donald Trump.

According to Law 360, Mueller wants to talk to McGahn about the May 9 firing of FBI Director James Comey.

Mueller is probing the White House's involvement in a statement that Donald Trump Jr issued after revelations that he met with a Russian lawyer shopping damaging information on Hillary Clinton during his father's presidential campaign.

Hicks is also expected to be asked about what she knows of the Trump Tower meeting and the White House's response to a New York Times report about the meeting in July. The White House expects Mueller will seek to interview other aides, and the staffers will have to obtain their own legal counsel, the person said.

Trout, the lawyer for Hicks, is a former USA assistant attorney in Baltimore.
