Today Fiona Hill testified before the committee and she blasted apart both the Dem and the GOP talking points about Russia and elections.
She ripped the GOP saying “based on questions and statements I have heard, some of you on this committee appears 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,” she added.
Fiona Hill also had some very harsh words for the Steele Dossier which formed the base of many conspiracy theories about President Trump and Russia by the media and Dem’s.
She made it very clear that Russia is trying to create chaos by playing both sides off each other and the we shouldn’t have fallen for it.
People should not forget that the left put this country through three years of nonsense that can be said was in part fueled by a different Russian disinformation scheme.
The Daily Caller reported that a former White House official who Democrats consider a key witness in their impeachment inquiry told lawmakers in October that she believed Russians likely planted disinformation about President Trump with dossier author Christopher Steele.
Fiona Hill, who served as the White House’s top adviser on Russia affairs until July, told lawmakers she was “shocked” to find out that Steele, a former MI6 officer, was the author of the dossier. That’s in large part because when she had met with Steele in the years leading up to his dossier work, he was “constantly try to drum up business.”
… “Because if you also think about it, the Russians would have an ax to grind against him given the job that he had previously. And if he started going back through his old contacts and asking about, that would be a perfect opportunity for people to feed some kind of misinformation,” she said, who was a scholar at the Brookings Institution until she joined the Trump administration.
Hill also said that she was not aware of the dossier until a colleague showed it to her day before BuzzFeed published it on Jan. 10, 2017.
When she read the report, Hill said she had “misgivings and concern that [Steele] could have been played.”
