Ex-Trump Russia expert told lawmakers she's gotten death threats
The Hill ^ | 11 08 2019 | Brett Samuels

A former top Russia analyst for the White House told House lawmakers that she received death threats ahead of her testimony as part of the ongoing impeachment inquiry into President Trump.

Fiona Hill, who served on Trump’s National Security Council before leaving the post voluntarily over the summer, testified in a closed-door hearing that she and other officials were the target of threats and anti-Semitic conspiracy theories, according to a transcript of her Oct. 14 testimony that was released Friday.

"My entire first year of my tenure at the National Security Council was filled with hateful calls, conspiracy theories, which has started again, frankly, as it's been announced that I've been giving this deposition," Hill said.

"I received, I just have to tell you, death threats, calls at my home," she added. Hill described her neighbors hearing someone hammering on her door, as well as someone calling her home to deride her with obscenities.

"Now, I'm not easily intimidated, but that made me mad," Hill testified. "And when I saw this happening to Ambassador Yovanovitch again, I was furious, because this is, again, just this whipping up of what is frankly an anti-Semitic conspiracy theory about George Soros to basically target nonpartisan career officials, and also some political appointees as well, because I just want to say this: This is not indiscriminate in its attacks."

Did you call the police Fiona? If not, then it didn’t happen. End of story.

Liar. Same old lie we hear every time one of these pathetic propaganda stooges show up at one of these hearings.

We watched intimidation in real time during the Kavaugh hearings.

I'm very skeptical of that claim. To my knowledge, she was not in the news at the time, and most people had never heard of her. Why would she be receiving death threats? I don't know if she's Jewish, but her name certainly does not sound Jewish. And that time period was before any of the Ukraine brouhaha had begun.

Moreover, what does any of this have to do with Trump? This is just an attempt to smear Trump via guilt-by-association.

Trump made the same mistake GWBush made. He left too many NSC and State Department staffers in place, wrongly thinking his chiefs would lead and be in charge, while those staffers, part of the deep state, think that they, not the elected officials make (or ought to be making) policy.

I’ve gotten tons of death threats - I always hear: “Ken, I’m gonna’ kill you!”

Most of us Trump supporters like the Jews because we’re Christian.

But who ever heard the name Fiona Hill and who would think she’s Jewish?

Oh, did she make a derogatory comment about the clintoons? Oh, I forgot. THEY don’t threaten. Actions are simply put into play.

Meadow muffins.

Never threaten anyone. Why? You lose the element of surprise.

"I didn’t know Soros was a Jew."

Soros has the worst type of actions against the Jewish people. He couldn't be Jewish.
No police record of the threat or showing the threat.

Obviously fake

That's my point. I don't recall her ever being in the news, and her name is not obviously Jewish, so why would be she receiving death threats and anti-Jewish slurs? I think the vast majority of people had never even heard of her.

As I’ve said before ... If President Trump only put trusted people in those positions, then about 95% of the leadership positions in the executive branch of the U.S. government would be vacant. And most of those that COULD be filled would have a Trump family member in it.

He was born Jewish but turned into the kind of Jew that helped the Nazis confiscate the property of the Jews they were exterminating.
Soros called it the best time of his life.
