  • "Never asked to tell big lies." The questions Hicks answered mostly involved the Trump campaign. She told lawmakers she had "never been asked to lie about matters of substance or consequence," and the only lies she told on behalf of Trump were "white lies" about matters like availability, CNN reports.
  • Foreign assistance. After the hearing, Nadler said Hicks "made clear that she understood the president to be serious when he said that he would accept foreign interference in our elections," reports Reuters. "She also made clear that even she knew that such foreign assistance should be rejected and reported to the FBI," he added.
  • A waste of time? After a day of questioning, lawmakers had learned little that was new about the Trump campaign or other matters, the AP reports. The committee "took eight hours to find out what really most of us knew at the beginning," Rep. Doug Collins, the top Republican on the panel, said afterward.
(Soon after the hearing began, Democrats called Hicks' stonewalling "ridiculous.")
