As the Democrat U.S. House of Representatives wrap up its impeachment hearings against President Donald Trump, critics questioning the impartiality and credibility of officials testifying against the president have learned that ex-National Security Council member Fiona Hill previously worked for far-left financier George Soros.
Hearings were underway over Trumps request to the Ukrainian government that it help investigate foreign interference in the 2016 presidential election, and look into whether former Vice President Joe Biden pressured the Ukrainian government to fire a prosecutor because he had been investigating his son Hunters business dealings in the country. Democrats claim Trump tried to illicitly withhold military aid in exchange for damaging information on a potential political opponent; the presidents defenders argue he engaged in routine negotiating in pursuit of valid questions.
Hill, who was a White House advisor on Russia policy, testified this week that she considered Trumps efforts to get the Ukrainians to investigate the Bidens amounted to a domestic political errand to the detriment of sound foreign policy. She also dismissed suspicions of Ukrainian election interference as a fictional narrative.
In response, the White House has characterized her testimony as indicating no direct knowledge of any damning revelations (she left her post prior to the phone call between Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky), and critics have called her impartiality into question by noting that she has reversed her position on Ukrainian military aid since the Obama years.
On Thursday, conservative pundit and former federal prosecutor Andy McCarthy responded to Hills dismissal of Ukrainian election interference. A Ukrainian court, in late 2018, concluded that two Ukrainian officials meddled in the election, he writes. And in 2018 House testimony, Nellie Ohr who worked for Fusion GPS, the Clinton campaign opposition research firm that produced the lurid and discredited Steele dossier conceded that a pro-Clinton Ukrainian legislator was a Fusion informant.
Hill is too smart not to have grasped the effect of her testimony, McCarthy wrote. This is exactly the kind of cynicism that fuels concerns about the unaccountable deep state.
Further raising questions about Hills impartiality is her resume, which reveals that from 2000 to 2006 she was a member of the Central Eurasia Project Advisory Board of George Soros Open Society Institute. Hill has assailed invocations of the connection as an anti-Semitic conspiracy theory akin to the Protocols of the Elders of Zion.
Yet it is undisputed that Soros is an avowed progressive, foe of Republicans generally and Trump specifically, and a prolific financier of left-wing causes throughout the United States and around the world, raising questions about the political leanings of those who work for his organizations.
Additionally, Soros identifies as an atheist, and his nominally-Jewish roots are not a factor in mainstream conservative commentary about him, with one exception: noting that as a teen in Nazi-occupied Hungary, Soros assisted a Hungarian official on trips to inventory the confiscated possessions of Jewish families. Soros said in 1998 he feels no guilt at all for his participation, because somebody else would be doing it if he hadnt.
Soros seems to have unlimited free passes.
Soros is an avowed progressive
Yes, he is indeed a filthy old crook.
I am not surprised. I keep hearing that this whole mess was started by Obama. And who backed Obama!?!?!?!?
I’m pretty certain my definition of “progressive” doesn’t apply to Soros.
Did nobody have the info that she had/maybe still does work for Soros when she testified? Why not?
What???? Et tu, Life Site News? President Trump made no such requests.
You know everyone knows a lot of the RATS and RINOS got money from him and everyone does not want to say it or report it!
Still waiting for the karma train to wreck these mofos....many, many mofos.
You know between Hill, and the rest of the Fake News, out right lying about the well document Ukrainian role in the 2016 election interference, her desperation to distract from Soros role in all this and her pathetic attempts to blame the Russian for every issue, I beginning to think the corruption in the Ukraine runs far far far deeper then we have yet found
Remember we spent billions in the Ukraine after the collapse of the Soviet Union buying up their weapons and transitioning them to Democracy under the 1st Bush and the Clintons.
Just how much US Taxpayer loot have the Democrat siphoned off from the Ukraine the last 30 years
And an unconvicted Nazi collaborator who should be in prison
Speaking of fictional narratives, the “George Soros” narrative is soon to be of the fictional variety.
Soros was a Jewish teen that turned Nazi collaborator against his own people. How could he not become inhuman?
Yeah, and his last one is more than 88% expired.
So many things I want to say about what I would like to see happen to Soros and sons.
Soros bump for later.....
Yes, and it is important to remember his sons are being groomed. We cant completely celebrate whe daddy retires, the sons will just take his place.
