The transcript of Fiona Hill's closed-door testimony has been released today to the public, and it contains chilling testimony about harassment she received throughout her tenure as a top-level National Security Officer in Trump's administration. She was present during the contentious July meeting between Trump and John Bolton, and long before that had expressed concern about Rudy Giuliani's likely illegal facilitation of Trump's attempts to extort and bribe Ukraine's new president, Volodymyr Zelensky.

Is it any wonder dear leader is screaming about these officials testifying in public? THAT is terrifying for cowardly, fragile, weak-minded thugs like the squatter in the Oval Office.
