Impeachment Hearings: Day 4

Fiona Hill to criticize Republicans for pushing ‘fictional narrative’ on Ukraine.

President Donald Trump’s former top Russia aide plans to go after Republican lawmakers on Thursday for pushing what she dubs a “fictional narrative” 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 Russia’s malign global influence at the behest of its president, Vladimir Putin.
