MANHATTAN, NEW YORK: Hope Hicks, the former White House communications director is likely to testify for the prosecution in former President Donald Trump's upcoming hush-money criminal trial.

NBC News reported Monday on Hicks' expected testimony, citing a source with direct knowledge that the 35-year-old spoke with prosecutors from Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg's office for several hours last year.



 

Investigators suspect Hicks, as Donald Trump's 2016 campaign press secretary, was engaged in negotiating a $130,000 payment to adult film star Stormy Daniels in order to prevent her from revealing claims of a decade-old affair with the then-Republican nominee.

Who else would probably be testifying at Donald Trump’s criminal trial on April 15?

Hope Hicks, a former aide to Donald Trump, is expected to testify in the former president's New York criminal trial.

Per the New York Post, Hicks' attorney had claimed in 2019 that she had no knowledge of the payment made to Stormy Daniels until the Wall Street Journal reported it in January 2018.

The 77-year-old MAGA strongman has denied having an affair with Daniels.

The charges brought against the presumptive 2024 Republican presidential nominee are based on allegations that he fabricated business records to hide the payment of hush money to his then-personal lawyer, Michael Cohen.

Michael Cohen, who was sentenced to three years in prison for tax evasion and campaign finance violations, is cooperating with DA Bragg's office and is expected to be a key witness in the case against former President Donald Trump.

The former POTUS, who is facing 88 criminal charges across four separate indictments, has denied any wrongdoing and has referred to the prosecution as a "witch hunt" aimed at preventing him from winning a second term later this year.

Stormy Daniels is also anticipated to testify once the trial commences. Donald Trump attempted to prevent Cohen and Daniels from testifying, but the court rejected his efforts last month.

Internet mocks Donald Trump

People on X ridiculed the embattled ex-POTUS as former White House communications director Hope Hicks is reportedly a witness for the prosecution in the hush money criminal trial, set to begin on April 15.

One X user quipped, “Uh oh. Looks like Trump has no Hope."



 

"Whoa, this testimony is going to be something," another user wrote.



 

"Never before in history a presidential candidate has had so many impeachments, felony indictments, and trials as Trump has. Clearly common sense is telling Republicans that Trump is unqualified and unfit," another user said.



 

One user claimed, "You all need to remember. Not one witness was a member of the Democratic Party. These witnesses are all GOP. This needs to drilled into that whole response."



 

Another X user remarked, "Uh oh. Here comes the MAGA storm to start bad talking poor Hope. Good luck."



 

One user tweeted, "Queue the ranting messages of a) never knew her b) she never worked directly for me c) she's lying."
