Fiona Hill Calls Out Republicans For Pushing 'False Narrative' From Russia

We all wish the camera would turn to Devin Nunes as Fiona Hill flattens the lies he's been telling about Ukraine.

Whoa, Fiona Hill did NOT come to play today.

In her opening statement, she called out Republicans, if not by name, certainly by behavior:

DR. FIONA HILL: Based on questions and statements I have heard, some of you on this committee appear to believe that Russia and its security services did not conduct a campaign against our country—and that perhaps, somehow, for some reason, Ukraine did.

This is a fictional narrative that has been perpetrated and propagated by the Russian Security services themselves. The unfortunate truth is that Russia was the foreign power that systematically attacked our democratic institutions in 2016. This is the public conclusion of our intelligence agencies, confirmed in bipartisan Congressional reports. It is beyond dispute, even if some of the underlying details must remain classified.

Right now, Russia’s security services and their proxies have geared up to repeat their interference in the 2020 election. We are running out of time to stop them. In the course of this investigation, I would ask that you please not promote
politically driven falsehoods that so clearly advance Russian interests.
