Getting error: "Bummer: Unexpected AST node type passed to processExpressionStatement method: VariableDeclaration"

My code is working in the preview screen. Not sure what the TeamTreeHouse error means.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css" type="text/css" media="screen" title="no title" charset="utf-8">
    <h2>Star Trek Characters</h2>

    <ul class="character-list">
        <li>Captain Jean Luc Picard</li>
        <li>Dr. Crusher</li>

    <div>I am supposed to stay hidden!</div>    

    <script src="app.js"></script>
const $hiddenLinks = $('li:hidden');

I was getting the same error. For some reason the error occurs when you declare a variable to hold the hidden li elements. Try chaining it with the jQuery show method instead and that should work.
