There is joy in the Oval Office today over The Return of Hope Hicks, former White House comms director, and if you look at her track record, you can understand why. Trump trusts her because she observes the code of omerta:

Here's what Eric Swallwell said after Hope Hicks testified before the House Intelligence committee:

"Congressman Swalwell, did she say anything about that part and the questioning about contacts and activities during the campaign and did she say anything that was different from what she appeared to say in the Mueller report?" O'Donnell asked.

"I will characterize it this way. She knew what she was not supposed to say. Her memory would be foggy or she would refuse to answer. She wouldn't really go into the Mueller report, citing it as a time she was at the White House. What this shows me is how guilty this gang is," Swalwell said.

Madeline Dean:

I asked her about communications with Russians or Russian officials. She tried to say that there were no communications whatsoever. When i asked more specifically, she said probably an e-mail or more. She didn't think they were relevant. I tried to impress upon the witness it was not up to her to decide what was relevant. We wanted the facts and the truth before the American people. I had stonewalling there.

So we know why Trump loves her. We also know that returning as an advisor reporting to Jared Kushner means they're hoping Our Hopey will be able to keep Trump from setting off nukes before the election, thus assuring the Trump Family can continue to grift unimpeded.
