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.

Could Pelosi not have scheduled the votes that are taking place now until an hour later? Of course. More of Shiffheads skewing the proceedings. I hate that man with a passion.
Sorry, but you have it all wrong. Colorful and theatrical hold an audience. Erudite but colorless and boring do not.
I think it's also strange that Holmes would even ask what was said. Was he being nosy, or was he already clued into the idea that a trap was being set to catch Trump in some sort of trap set up by Vindman, and others?
This whole plot may be more organized than first thought.
That's an excellent point. I hope our guys and Elise are all over this.
Something to ponder about Fiona Hill. She was against Ukraine getting arms:
Fiona Hill Wrote Washington Post Op-ed Against Giving Ukraine Weapons in 2015
Giuliani, the president’s personal attorney, spoke to Beck on his program Wednesday about the claims being made against him by Democrats in their ongoing impeachment inquiry.
“The anti-corruption bureau is a contradiction,” said Giuliani about the bureau set up in Ukraine to root out corruption.
“They took all the corruption cases away from the prosecutor general, they gave it to the anti-corruption bureau, and they got rid of all the cases that offended Soros, and they included all the cases against Soros’ enemies,” he explained.
“One of the first cases they dismissed was a case in which his NGO, AntAC, was supposed to have embezzled a lot of money, but not only that, collected dirty information on Republicans to be transmitted, gotten by Ukrainians, to be transmitted to this woman Alexandra Chalupa and other people who worked for the Democratic National Committee,” Giuliani continued.
“The first case that [former prosecutor Yuri] Lutsenko tanked was that case at the request of the ambassador,” he added.
Elsewhere in the interview, Giuliani described his reaction when he discovered the Ukrainian collusion that undermined the accusations of the Democrats made against the president.
“Hallelujah! I now have what a defense lawyer always wants: I can go prove somebody else committed this crime!” Giuliani said.
Giuliani explained to Beck that he had gone to Ukraine seeking exculpatory evidence, that which would exonerate his client, the president, in the special counsel Robert Mueller investigation.
When Giuliani was asked directly about the identity of the whistleblower, he said that he could not speak about the matter publicly, and could not indicate if he knew the identity or not.
He also claimed that there were several prosecutors in Ukraine currently who were willing to testify about the collusion, but they were being blocked by the U.S. State Department. When prompted by Beck, he said he would provide for him the names of those individuals off air.
“The case is a massive pay-for-play multimillion-dollar scheme, and it is an absolute travesty of justice,” Giuliani said.

“Sorry, but you have it all wrong. Colorful and theatrical hold an audience.”
TEMPERED color and theatrics hold an audience. Excessive and exaggerated color and theatrics do not; rather, they turn off an audience.
They sure did, and Hill also agreed that it had been debunked.
You can bet she is neck deep in that.
Elise? Call me Madam Senator General. (Old Barbara Boxer Reference just for humor)
Lol, denying all this stuff over and over just makes it more onerous when it eventually comes out.
What’s obvious is the Council on Foreign Relations, The State Dept., these self serving ambassadors and their minions are all corrupt as #=))!!! They appear as part of the ‘resistance’. Whom ever recruited and coordinated all these characters into the traitorous coup didn’t do a very good job training them.
When the Democrat counsel was questioning Hill, he ask her if that prosecutor was corrupt. She answered yes,
Then he ask her if the prosecutor was investigating Burisma. She answered no.
Just that short and precise. And, of course, no follow up questioning. I hope the Republicans bring those points back up.
Yes, Fiona Hill has a lot to answer for. I do hope the GOP members of the committee confront her with that.
Maybe Glenn needs to do a replay of his old Spooky Dude ($oros) series....to educate the younger generation.
I am still leery of Beck. After his NeverTrump meltdown, and financial problems, I wondered if $oros had bailed him out. Old Man Potter style.
They are voting.
Sondland kept saying they wouldnt give him access to his records. In the afternoon session when Sondlands testimony was over the Republicans read a just released statement (they said it came out during the break) from the State Department that Sondland has not been denied access to his emails or any documents.
I am not sure what was going on with that.
Don’t forget the Atlantic Council which IS Crowdstrike.
