Democrats unhappy with Hope Hicks’ limited testimony to House committee

Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-Wash.) called the meeting a “farce,” and several committee members said Hicks wouldn’t answer questions as simple as where she sat in the White House.

“She made clear she wouldn’t answer a single question about her time unless the White House counsel told her it was okay,” Rep. Ted Deutch (D-Fla.) said.

A public transcript of the testimony is expected to be released within 48 hours.
