“I just screwed it up,” Nadler, a New York Democrat, told CNN in the Capitol on Friday.
Nadler said he was running through a series of questions with Hicks, including about former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski. He said that he had “two different counsels” who were “whispering in my ear” while he was seeking to question her and erroneously called her “Ms. Lewandowski.”
Nadler said that he was also “thinking about” all the objections raised by White House lawyers to his questions about her time while serving at the White House.
“That’s what I was thinking about, and I screwed it up,” Nadler said. “I meant nothing by it.”
