A former Trump spokesman is expected to tell Robert Mueller about a conference call that he says led him to believe that Hope Hicks "could be contemplating obstructing justice".
According to the New York Times, Mark Corallo, the former spokesman for President Donald Trump's legal team, will reportedly tell Robert Mueller that White House communications director Hope Hicks said that Donald Trump Jr.'s emails regarding the June 2016 Trump Tower meeting with Russians "will never get out" because only a few people had access to them.
Corallo told the New York Times he was concerned that Hicks "could be contemplating obstructing justice" despite the fact that the emails had already been released. Hick's attorney, Robert P. Trout, told the Times Hick's "never said that." The emails in question were written by Trump Jr. and didn't exactly line up with his original story.
In actuality, the emails seem to show Trump Jr. accepted the meeting after he was promised dirt on Hillary Clinton despite his original statement saying the meeting was centered around Russian adoptions. The whole situation amounts to high school gossip and the "he said, she said" drama doesn't seem to amount to any crime.

One Twitter user simplified the situation outlined in a New York Times article saying the narrative is a last-ditch effort to discredit Trump before the FISA memo is released.
