Hope Hicks Testifies Michael Cohen Often Frustrated Trump Campaign Staff, Called Himself ‘Mr. Fix It’

During the 11th day of the criminal trial in the case N.Y. v. Trump, former Trump campaign and White House communications director Hope Hicks took the stand, offering insight into the dynamics between the campaign staff and Trump’s ex-lawyer Michael Cohen. Hicks testified that Cohen, a central figure in the case who is expected to be a key witness for the prosecution, would often frustrate campaign staff and do things that were not helpful.

On the witness stand, Hicks delivered a scathing assessment of Cohen’s behavior, stating, “He used to like to call himself Mr. Fix It, but it was only because he first broke it.” This statement underscores the tension that existed between Cohen and the campaign staff, suggesting that Cohen’s actions often created problems that he would then attempt to resolve.

Cohen’s role in the case revolves around his involvement in arranging a $130,000 payment to adult film actress Stormy Daniels, allegedly to prevent her from speaking publicly about an affair she claims to have had with Trump in the early 2000s.

The prosecution argues that this payment, which Trump later reimbursed to Cohen, was falsely recorded as legal expenses to conceal its true purpose of influencing the 2016 presidential election.

As the trial continues, Cohen’s testimony is expected to be a focal point, with the prosecution aiming to use his insider knowledge to build their case against the former president. Hicks’ testimony, meanwhile, provides a glimpse into the complex relationships and dynamics that existed within Trump’s inner circle during the 2016 campaign.
