Impeachment Hearings: Day 4

Fiona Hill to criticize Republicans for pushing โ€˜fictional narrativeโ€™ on Ukraine.

President Donald Trumpโ€™s former top Russia aide plans to go after Republican lawmakers on Thursday for pushing what she dubs a โ€œfictional narrativeโ€ about Ukrainian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

In her opening statement before House impeachment investigators, obtained by POLITICO, Fiona Hill plans to say that such claims embolden Moscow and are being weaponized to distract from Russiaโ€™s malign global influence at the behest of its president, Vladimir Putin.
