Dr. Fiona Hill Gives Chairman  Schiff What He Wanted; Anti-Trump Innuendo

December 5, 2019 --

The New York Times, in its lead editorial November 22 quoted from Dr. Hill's testimony before the House impeachment inquiry, November 21.   

She was  said to have warned that the goal of Russia "'is to weaken our country.'"  She was further quoted as saying that attention should be paid "' [i]f the president, or anybody else, impedes or subverts the national security of the United States in order to further domestic political or personal interests...."    Finally, the editorial quoted Dr. Hill  as telling the inquiry, "I believe that those who have information that the Congress deems relevant have a legal and a moral obligation to provide it....'"  ( But relevant testimony from the anonymous "whistleblower" was not allowed.)

Dr. Hill's two-year service on the National Security Council ended this past  July.  She left government a week before the July 25 phone call between President Trump and Ukraine President Zelensky.   

Her testimony, therefore, could not relevant to the facts and allegations arising from  that phone call.    

LPR concludes that Rep. Adam Schiff, chairman of the impeachment committee, called Dr. Hill  to provide innuendo that President Trump was betraying the nation, as part of the Democrats' strategy to undermine the Trump administration.
