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.

Was season six the last of it?
Except for one scene the movie is fantastic.
Yes, I also read about BCG operating in Ukraine.
She’s from up near Newcastle-upon-Tyne. Their accent is VERY heavy and almost Scottish. She’s definitely self conscious about it and worked hard to rid herself of her accent, but it doesn’t sound soft like natural Londoner English.
she is praising Perry which is interesting
the way I see it, a house censure of the president would get the house their 'put down' of the President, and would avoid the outing of biden, pelosi, schiff, kerry cash laundering, and all the other recepients of ukraine cash that we do not know about yet, that articles of impeachment would bring about.
Hill is hard to pin down. She’s tough!
Censure and not impeachment will give Trump alot of fodder to use against them
Hill worked in the research department at the John F. Kennedy School of Government from 1991 to 1999, and at the National Intelligence Council as a national intelligence analyst for Russia and Eurasia from 2006 to 2009. In 2017, she took a leave of absence from the Brookings Institution, where she was director for the Center on the United States and Europe, while serving on the National Security Council. Hill is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations and the board of trustees of the Eurasia Foundation.
The striking connection is Hills stint with the Eurasia Foundation between 1999 and 2005. The Eurasia Foundation is a U.S. government supported NGO (receiving funding from U.S. AID) which was established under congressional auspices in 1992 by retired Congressman Bill Frenzel and cofounder Sarah Carey, an attorney. Its purpose was to foster civil society, political, and economic development in the former Soviet republics.
Other than the U.S. government, which has always supplied the lions share of the funding, a major sponsor is the Open Society Foundations. The timing of the Eurasia Foundations establishment coincided with George Soross initiation of similar institutional efforts in the Baltic Republics, and shortly thereafter in other nations of Eastern Europe.
Hills Brookings Institution biography gives her dates as a program director with the Eurasia Foundation as 1999-2000. However, her downloadable c.v. (link at left on the bio page) also indicates she served as an Advisor to the President of the Eurasia Foundation from October 2000 to December 2005. The foundations president throughout that period was Charles William Maynes, previously the editor of Foreign Policy magazine and a State Department appointee under Jimmy Carter.
During that period, Hill was also a member of the Central Eurasia Project Advisory Board of the Open Society Institute, with the dates given as 2000-2006.
Why doesn’t he mention their lawyers firm works for Burisma?
