Joe Scarborough said former White House Communications Director Hope Hicks should prepare to go to trial and be ready to face special counsel Bob Mueller, Thursday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”
Scarborough continued to defend the Mueller investigation and said the Russia probe was finally starting to pick up.
“I think more importantly it also comes at a time when the Mueller investigation is really starting to pick up,” Scarborough said. “We had two reporters yesterday come on our show saying their sources inside the Mueller investigation say things are starting to move at a very rapid pace.”
“Bob Mueller is not nibbling around the edges anymore,” he added. “He’s going straight in and asking the questions. Did Donald Trump know about the Russian hacking of the DNC. Did he plan things out?”
Scarborough said things are about to get “ugly” inside the White House and thinks Hicks should be prepared to go to court, despite reports that she was already planning to leave her job.
According to the New York Time story by Maggie Haberman, Hicks had been “considering leaving the White House for several months.”
“Things are about to get ugly inside the White House,” Scarborough concluded. “There’s not much good news for a lot of people and Hope Hicks also of course involved in that Air Force One meeting. The drafting of the memo. She was sort of a courier but at the same time she’s got to get ready for Mueller. She’s got to get ready for a trial. I mean, things could get ugly.”
