WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Donald Trump's former Russia adviser Fiona Hill urged lawmakers in the House of Representatives impeachment inquiry on Thursday not to promote "politically driven falsehoods" that cast doubt on Russia's interference in the 2016 U.S. election.
In her prepared testimony, Hill said some members of the House Intelligence Committee, based on their questions and statements, appear to believe that Russia and its security services did not conduct a campaign against the United States during the 2016 presidential race and that perhaps Ukraine did.
Hill appeared to be referring to some of President Donald Trump's Republican allies and defenders on the committee in the impeachment inquiry focusing on his actions toward Ukraine.
"This is a fictional narrative that has been perpetrated and propagated by the Russian security services themselves," said Hill, who until July served as the director for European and Russian affairs at the White House National Security Council.
"In the course of this investigation, I would ask that you please not promote politically driven falsehoods that so clearly advance Russian interests," she said.
Some Republican members of the committee have advanced a discredited conspiracy theory, embraced by Trump and some of his allies in Congress and the conservative media, that Ukraine, not Russia, interfered in the last presidential election.
Thursday's hearing marks the fifth and last scheduled day of public hearings by the Democratic-led House Intelligence Committee. The inquiry is focused on Trump's June 25 telephone request that Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy investigate former Vice President Joe Biden, a leading contender in the field of Democrats seeking to challenge Trump in the 2020 election. Trump also asked Zelenskiy to investigate the debunked conspiracy theory that Ukraine interfered in the 2016 election.

And it's we Republican voters that put them there!
And a Neoconservative is just a Democrat who hates Russia. That's it, nothing more, nothing less.
GHW Bush brought a few with him to the Reagan admin. After that their numbers exploded in both Democrat and Republican administrations.
They are your enemy. They are enemies of the American people.
Have we circled back to the narrative that Trump is just Putin’s stooge?
The Russians have been using propaganda to influence our politics for 75 years.
The RNC/GOPe Only allow uniparty candidates in the primaries backing them with $$$$. Rarely does a constitutionalist/tea party type ever win a primary, and when/if they do get elected, they are read the “real agenda”. Thats how we got to where we are at. On the democrat side, its the “free shit” that gets them elected. Together they represent the Uniparty, and Not their constituents.
As has every nation in world with the ability to write English.
The entire world has a stake in US elections and they do what they can to protect their interests.
+100 they are traitors just the same worthy of prison or death.
And it’s we Republican voters that put them there!
That statement is broadly applicable to Republican voters in general. We keep sending squishy politicians to Washington (i.e., we put them there) and then excuse their duplicity because they are not Democrats. We need to start voting strictly on the basis of RESULTS instead of empty rhetoric, false promises and their general refusal to shrink the size of government. If we don’t do this its our fault.
Kinda like the fictional impeachment "crime" narrative perpetuated and propagated by the Dems and the media?
Fake news. Same people who peddled the Russian hoax are calling Ukraine s interference in the 2016 election to defeat Trump a conspiracy theory.
You cant make this stuff up.
I heard a minute or so of her testimony on the radio and I laughed out loud twice on the ludicrous things she said.
What is the source of that image and caption?
The Brits actively worked against Isolationist politicians before WWII.
Ask Ms. Hill one question. Was Alexandra Chalupa working for Ukraine, or Russia, or both?
Well said and succinctly put.
As the cartoon character Pogo famously said: “We have met the enemy and he is us.” Republican voters need to DEMAND results and accountability from their elected representatives instead of accepting what the RNC wants. Unfortunately we are not making the effort to do that.
I bet Jordan will ask this one of her.
Hill recycling the same old game of the Democrat Fascist Party.
Rule 101 of Democrat Fascist party politics, if cannot defend your actions accuse the other side of something to deflect and distract off your crimes.
Basically Hill is saying
“If you mean old Republican try to look at our corrupt behavior in the Ukraine, you are just tools for the Russians”
“Have we circled back to the narrative that Trump is just Putins stooge?”
That’s why he’s out to get Ukraine./s
So Ms Hill, are you lying now or were the NY Times and Politco lying in 2017?
Ukrainian efforts to sabotage Trump backfire
Kiev officials are scrambling to make amends with the president-elect after quietly working to boost Clinton.

That is EXACTLY where the entire narrative is headed.
