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.

Beck’s question led to a long discussion about Giuliani’s activity in Ukraine: “What was your mandate? What did the president ask you to do in Ukraine? What were you doing?”
RUDY GIULIANI: And after I did them I went to John Solomon and John had been working on it before me. I said to John, I think you should take the lead and we should put this all in the newspapers because if I go to the Justice Department now, they’re going to say Trump is forcing the Justice Department to do it. Let’s put the darn thing out, and let’s see if any of these crooked media people will follow up on a proven case of bribery. And of course what we prove is, the double standard is so bad that they are faced with absolute proof that Biden paid a bribe.
Atlantic counsel is bad news all around.....I researched them when Obama was in office....they and those linked to them are part of the Global Cabal for want of a better term
Sigh. For the umpteenth time: I think Rudy has come off as a loose cannon ON TV!!!!!!!!!!!! I did NOT say he comes off as a loose cannon with his investigations. (The preceding is not necessarily directed towards you; rather, it is more aptly directed towards others on this thread who took umbrage over my comments about some of Rudy’s TV appearances.)
But, I agree with you re: the bureaucrats, and their thinly-disguised high dudgeon about someone outside their sphere doing some of the heavy lifting. And you are so right about the evil cabal you named getting the vapors, as their honeypot may get cracked.
Hill was born in Bishop Auckland, County Durham, in northern England
Hill became a U.S. citizen in 2002
Fiona Hill and Kenneth Keen met on the campus of Harvard University.
Kenneth Keen and Fiona Hill shared an interest in the Soviet Union. Like his wife, Keen focused on Russian Studies as the subject of his masters degree at Harvard.
Kenneth Keen focused on Russian Studies as a student, but it does not appear he ever pursued the topic as a career. After earning his MBA, Keen went to work for the Boston Consulting Group in 2000. His title on the company website is listed as Managing Director & Senior Partner.
Keens bio explains that he has worked extensively with leading health-care and consumer companies, primarily in areas related to marketing and sales and organization. The bio adds that Keen is the head of the firms office in Washington, D.C.
Many of the witnesses have links to the Council. Vindman in particular. The owner of Crowdstrike is very high up in the Council leadership. I waste a lot of time trying to connect the dots.
“Atlantic counsel is bad news all around.....I researched them when Obama was in office....they and those linked to them are part of the Global Cabal for want of a better term”
Yes they are, and they are very bipartisan. there are no loyalties to either blue or red, only green as in cash.
Hell, Id go with Alan Dershowitz over Rudy
Alan Dershowitz is a scholar but not a fighter like Rudy. Id pick Dershowitz as a judge - I think hes a principled defender of civil liberties and the constitution.
But Trump is in a political fight - the Democrats are pretending its about high crimes and misdemeanors - but thats a crock and everyone knows it. This is pure politics.
Guiliani knowing the law comes in handy but thats really not the role hes serving. Hes serving a role of fighting - he investigates, he gets dirt on them, he finds out what dirt they think they have on Trump, he goes out and blows smoke or he discredits them on TV. He bluffs and he calls their bluff.
Yes, being a lawyer is essential but thats not the role hes in. Besides being a prosecutor, hes also experienced in gutter politics.
I heard him say on Laura Ingraham - something to the effect of Please, let them come after me - I really hope they do - I cant wait. I have so much on them - I have filing cabinets full. That was a warning and I have no doubt President Trump put him up to it.
There are already signs that the Democrats may pull the plug on impeachment and ask for a censure, rather than risk the embarrassment of a 100% partisan impeachment being thrown out by a bipartisan Senate.
If they do back down, there is reason to believe it is largely because they fear what Giuliani can do to them if this goes to Senate trial. Giuliani can prove to be a very strong part of President Trumps arsenal if push comes to shove.
“I highly doubt it.”
So, facts and evidence be damned? You sound like a Democrat.
Beck does excellent series work.
Giuliani has been providing so much info...to no avail.
Hearing to resume soon.
Nancy is holding a series of votes in the House but can’t remember what they are voting on.
Not sure I ever heard.
Witnesses coming in now. So back on soon.
She should change her name to Phoney Hill.
Sorry I didn’t intend to imply you thught he was a loose cannon....
It is unfortunate that TV, twitter and other social media has to be used in order to get the truth out there as the media is operating as an arm of the Demorat Party....
Witnesses?? Or, hearsay interpreters?
Very true. Two of the pubbies on the intel committee have ties. Will Hurd and Wentraub(?). Watch their questioning for clues.
Thanks! Wonder if Kenneth Keen is any relation to presstitute Judy Keen....
Not much info available on Kenneth, is there....
Well we thought so... but now they are leaving because the committee has not returned yet. False start. lol
Too many corrupt politicians in Soros’ pocket.
