Hope Hicks, the now former White House communications director, informed the House Intelligence Committee that at least one of her email accounts was hacked.
An intelligence source told Fox News that one of Hick's old email accounts that she had since her college days had been hacked, but it was not one of her Trump or White House email addresses. Rep. Jim Himes, D-Conn. drilled Hicks in regard to her correspondence and she indicated she no longer had access to two past email accounts.
It is standard practice for officials to ask witnesses about phone numbers and email accounts. When Hicks reportedly told the panel she no longer has access to two past accounts, she informed them that one of them was an email account she used during the Trump campaign and another was a personal account.
Hicks has been one of President Trump's longest and most loyal advisers and worked as the White House communications director until announcing her resignation last week. Her announcement came just one day after she spoke to a House Intelligence panel.
According to White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders, Hick's resignation had nothing to do with her testimony before the House Intelligence panel. The revelation of a hack draws questions about why and what information could have been compromised.
The Special Counsel assigned to rooting out ties between Russia and the Trump administration also closely examined Hicks over her involvement in drafting a statement regarding a meeting between a Russian Lawyer and Donald Trump Jr., Trump's oldest son.
According to a Fox News intelligence source, Hicks reportedly told the panel that she occasionally told "white lies" for Trump but never lied about anything related to the Russian investigation.
