Hope Hicks: "The president cannot and does not have a conflict" at tonight's Mar-a-Lago bash

Mar-a-Lago sold tickets to New Year’s Eve party with Trump
The private club owned by the president-elect sold hundreds of tickets to the party the Trump family will attend.
By MADELINE CONWAY and KENNETH P. VOGEL 12/30/16 03:46 PM EST Updated 12/30/16 06:14 PM EST

Spicer, on a Friday morning conference call with reporters, said the party is already “sold out” with more than 800 people scheduled to attend, including actor Sylvester Stallone and music producer Quincy Jones, in addition to Trump, his wife, incoming first lady Melania Trump, and their son Barron Trump.

A person who travels in Palm Beach society circles said that tickets to the party were being sold for $525 each for members and $575 each for guests.

Incoming White House Director of Strategic Communications Hope Hicks rejected criticisms that Mar-a-Lago was selling access to the president-elect.

“The transition is not concerned about the appearance of a conflict,” she said. “This is an annual celebratory event at the private club, like others that have continued to occur since the election. Additionally, the president cannot and does not have a conflict.”

1. Hicks statement reminds me of Nixon's statement to David Frost

"If the president does it, it's not illegal."

4. Technically, she is correct

The President does not have a conflict of interest.

The President-Elect is one big bag of conflicts.
