Donald Trump's former communications chief Hope Hicks is taking on a similar role at a new Fox company, meaning she'll supervise messaging at her former boss's favourite television network. In her testimony, Hicks admitted telling occasional "white lies" for Trump but said she hadn't lied about anything related to the investigation. Bill Shine, the current White House communications director, replaced Hicks after he left his former role as Fox News Channel senior vice president.

The new Fox will include Fox News, Fox Sports, the Fox network and TV stations.
