This will likely be on the menu today:
Three hours into her scheduled testimony before the House Intelligence Committee, White House Communications Director Hope Hicks appears to be answering some of the committee’s questions, according to multiple members, though Democrats and Republicans on the committee differed on how useful those answers were.
Asked how the interview with Hicks was proceeding, Rep. Frank LoBiondo, R-New Jersey, said, “pretty boring.” Rep. Chris Stewart, R-Utah, quipped to reporters that he needed some “NoDoz,” a type of caffeine capsule.
Rep. Denny Heck, D-Washington, had a different take. Emerging from the committee’s secure spaces, and, asked whether the interview was productive, he replied, “We got Bannoned” – strongly suggesting that Hicks’ testimony had been limited by the White House, as was the case with former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon.
