Fiona Hill, former National Security Council senior director for Europe and Russia, will testify before the House Intelligence Committee on Thursday, Nov. 21, in the impeachment probe into President Donald Trump. Hill told lawmakers in closed-door testimony last month that then-national security adviser John Bolton expressed concerns that the Trump administration was trying to pressure Ukrainian officials. The focus of the impeachment inquiry is a July 25 phone call in which Trump asked Ukraine's president to investigate 2020 presidential candidate Joe Biden.

“...I would step outside or move to a less noisy area....”
Yes, this has been bugging me since I first heard it. Surely there are security protocols for when an ambassador speaks to a president. I’m pretty sure they wold NOT include using a cell phone in a public area.
“Non-partisan”. They never vote.
Holy crap, this “short statement” is already like 10 minutes long.
I mute until rep. cross exam
In what way? From the little I've seen, Rudy might be Trump's only friend in Washington.
She could have save a lot of words and just shortened this to... “Muh Russia!”
IG report to be released Dec 9th says Linda
Nothing of substance but a lot of opinionated jib-jab.
Holmes opened up the possibility of interesting question lines..
Holmes is a disgrace. He sounds like a member of Stasi. Holmes shouldnt be disclosing what went on in a conversation between Sondland and the President. Trump had no knowledge that someone was listening in on his conversation with the Ambassador. To divulge the contents during an impeachment hearing as well as to his colleagues in Sweden is reprehensible.
Holmes is doing a disservice to the Foreign Service. It will have a chilling effect on the Presidents political appointees to engage in candid conversations with other governments or others. The FS cant be trusted. Imagine if the Secret Service followed Holmes example.
He even provides them the buzzword of the day
Yesterday, the word was “explosive”
Laura Ingraham played a clip with about a dozen talking heads using that word
I started out watching all of this. I saw what you did, fake witness being exposed, Schiffty and dims lying and being exposed, the media having Trump on Marine One waving goodbye Nixon style.
Then I started only watching Nunes and the republicans eviscerating the witness/dim videos.
Now I’m to the point having no interst in watching. It doesn’t matter, who really cares? I can’t stay off FR though, so thanks, I’ll rely on Freepers to give me the Cliff Note version of what happened.
Up now, Fiona Hill, better known as “seagull lips” with a horrible haircut.
Hill just told Nunes That it was Russia and only Russia interfering based on the agencies findings.
She just indirectly said I dont care about that report you referenced that was ignored.
Also I seem to recall she may be a leaker based on another FR thread
Anyone else remember what that was
I would like to punch the smirking gay guy.
Listened to almost an hour of praising of more deep state bureaucrats in addition to a great description of this hearing by Rep Nunes.
This Fiona Hill looks like Joseph Goebbles with long hair.
She took a jab at republicans on the committee. She’s denying Ukraine interfered in 2016
Same for us.... the self serving nature of their leading commentary or questions is sickening.
