Hope Hicks To Become Fox Communications Director

Published

on

Hope Hicks, who served by President Donald Trump’s side during the presidential campaign and in the White House, has accepted the job of Fox communications director.

Rumors floated that Hicks might be returning to the White House, but it is now confirmed that she will use her talents for media strategy. Hicks will be tasked with maintaining and expanding Fox News’ dominance of the cable television arena, among other responsibilities.

The New York Times reports:“The reconstituted Fox corporation includes Fox Business, Fox Sports and a national broadcast network. But its central asset is Fox News, the highly profitable cable network with close ties to the Trump administration. The channel’s prime-time stars are relentless boosters of Mr. Trump, and its former co-president, Bill Shine, became Mr. Trump’s deputy chief of staff for communications in July…In the West Wing, Ms. Hicks was seen by many journalists and network executives as a key point of contact, able to channel the thinking of her tempestuous boss and single-handedly wrangle time for interviews with Mr. Trump in the Oval Office.”

In October 2016, Hicks cleared up a prominent national confusion, settling debate on the matter and thus paving the way for a new chapter in the history of independent news websites.

The New York Times reported: “Hope Hicks, a spokeswoman for the Trump campaign, said in an email on Sunday that Mr. Trump had been saying “big league,” not “bigly.” Companies that provide transcripts of the debates have agreed with her, as have many professional linguists, who have been mulling the question for months.”

Appeals Court Refuses to Expunge Joe Arpaio’s Contempt Conviction After Presidential Pardon

A judge isn’t happy about the pardon.

Published

on

A federal appeals court is refusing to expunge former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpario’s contempt of court conviction, after the sheriff was granted a presidential pardon by President Trump.

Such a legal move is rare if not unprecedented for the recipient of a presidential pardon. Usually federal and state court systems dismiss the convictions of people granted presidential pardon.

Arpaio was convicted of contempt of court in 2017 for refusing to change the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Department’s practices after a judge mandated that the agency cease immigration raids.

Three judges of the liberal San Francisco-based 9th Circuit Court upheld a ruling from a lower circuit court refusing to expunge the legal record of Arpaio’s conviction. The move sets new legal precedent for a recipient of a presidential pardon.

Arpaio was a frequent target of Eric Holder and the Obama administration, often coming under intense DOJ scrutiny for the practices of the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Department.

Arpaio ran for the United States Senate in 2018, coming in third in the Republican Primart behind Martha McSally and Kelli Ward. He’s now running for his old position as Maricopa County Sheriff once more at the ripe age of 87.

In any case, presidential pardons have traditionally resulted in dismissal of criminal convictions in federal and state courts. It’s hard to think of the 9th Circuit’s decision to maintain the conviction as anything more than a political slight to President Trump.
