Just to set the record straight, Obama left Ukraine defenseless, and Trump has armed them now. But that doesn’t matter — another day, another lie or two or ten from the Impeachment-Obsessed-Dems. The Democrats, aka Schiff-o-rats, are alleging (per their Whistleblower that has gone into hiding) that Trump withheld aid to the Ukrainians to coerce Zelensky into launching an investigation into the Bidens.
Adam Schiff’s closing witness, former senior director for European and Russian Affairs Fiona Hill, testified Thursday, and her position on Ukraine is now a 180-degree “schifft” compared to when she worked under Obama. Hill is now “convinced” that holding up aid could hamper Ukraine’s ability to defend itself against aggression from Russia, but when she worked under Obama, she worked hard to withhold that same aid. She held a much different opinion in 2015 when she wrote an op-ed for the Washington Post when she argued against arming the Ukrainians, warning that it could entangle the U.S. in conflict with Russian dictator Vladimir Putin.

Regardless of her opinion then or now, the bottom line is that Trump has already provided more aid to Ukraine than Obama or anyone working with Fiona Hill ever did.

Hill insisted that she’s non-partisan because she’s worked for three different Presidents, both Republican and Democrat. Pffft. One might instead use the words RINO and Democrat, but I digress. Why might I go there? Well, at the same time, she had worked for “both parties,” she also worked for Soros, and she’s linked to Christopher Steele and Joseph Mifsud. That’s all one needs to know about Fiona Hill. But for Thursday’s record, she’s “Non-Partisan.”

During her performance on Thursday, questions began popping up left and right about her change in opinion compared to her op-ed in 2015. Watch:

Dems didn’t care about arming Ukraine until Trump came along. Here’s a quick video of Ukraine’s then-President Poroshenko’s speech given to Congress when he asked for more support to fight Russia. “They need more military equipment…Blankets are also important…but one cannot win the war with blankets.”
The bottom line is that Fiona Hill wants Ukrainian aid now because Trump. The Dems have used the narrative of how “Ukraine aid was neglected by Trump” in their reach for life support – but the truth is that Trump gave Ukraine aid and military equipment. Obama provided “blankets.” Sounds familiar – Obama never has provided much.
Hill’s entire testimony, like the others, was based on hearsay and perception. AND it is reported that she was not even working in the White House at the time of the call with the Ukrainian president on July 25th — she resigned before the call. Hill only heard rumors. She had ZERO knowledge of President Trump’s call, but the Dems don’t care. They’re moving to impeach Trump based on rumors and intuitions and feelings. You know, because “hearsay is often the best evidence.”
As to other background on Fiona Hill, she was “the mole” outed as a George Soros operative by Roger Stone in May 2017. Stone had learned of this from Israeli spies. Once InfoWars interviewed Roger Stone, they suggested she might be one of the deep state’s anti-Trump “whistleblowers” involved in the current Ukraine witch hunt, under the supervision of former NSA adviser H.R. McMaster. Roger Stone gave the warning in July 2017 that he thought he’d be “targeted for annihilation” by the FBI for exposing the mole. And as we all know, he was raided by the FBI and arrested in January 2019.
It doesn’t stop there.
Hill has connections to Christopher Steele (who is suspected of being a source for Hill’s Vox article). According to people familiar with their relationship, the two British Russia hands are not exactly friends. But they have known each other for years, beginning when Hill was working on Russia at the National Intelligence Council, and Steele was on MI6’s Russia desk. “She had a high opinion of Steele, and thought he was very smart,” a foreign policy veteran, and one of Hill’s close friends, told POLITICO. Hill spoke to Steele in 2016 and discussed him with friends in 2017 after BuzzFeed published his memos outlining a potential conspiracy between the Trump campaign and Russia to win the election.
Hill also has past connections to Adam Schiff. Fiona Hill was a speaker, for example, at the Aspen Institute Security Forum in July 2017, an event for which Adam Schiff, now taking her testimony in a closed-door hearing, was also a speaker. This is a pattern with Schiff, given his Aspen participation in July 2018 and meeting with Glenn Simpson of Fusion GPS and dossier fame, who was also in attendance.
Hill also has connections to Professor Joseph Mifsud, the Maltese professor at the center of the storm with George Papadopoulos. Hill has attended the conferences of the Russian Valdai Club, like Spygate principal Joseph Mifsud and his Russian contact Ivan Timofeev. She has done this under the auspices of the Brookings Institution, with which she has been affiliated as a senior fellow and program director for many years.
Hill also has deep ties to Clinton crony, Strobe Talbott (who was a recipient of the Cody Shearer dossier that later became a part of the Steele dossier): Her work at Brookings, where she has stood alongside author collaborator Clifford Gaddy as resident Russia expert since 2009, was under the leadership of long-time Clinton intimate Strobe Talbott, who headed the Institution until 2017.
Also interesting: it is highly likely that Hill is connected to Eric Ciaramella. Who? (Insert sarcasm…Schiff has told everyone over and over to not say this name, so I guess Hill forgot it during her testimony…/end sarcasm.) Hill could not remember the name of the Ukraine director when she joined the White House. Odd, primarily since she likely worked with him on Ukrainian policy.
Question for Fiona Hill:
Who was the director for Ukraine working under you at the NSC in the spring/summer of 2017,after you joined the White House in April?
(Answer: Eric Ciaramella)
She couldn't recall his name in her deposition in convenient bout of amnesia
Ask her again

In follow-up to my story about John Solomon Thursday morning, it wouldn’t be a typical November day if the Dems or the media or one of their puppets when discussing Ukraine, did not try to discredit John Solomon and his well-documented timeline of events in Ukraine. During her testimony, Ms. Fiona, shared her false narrative about John Solomon because of course she would and here’s Solomon’s response:
How dare Fiona Hill question my patriotism or suggest I was part of a Russian disinformation campaign without a single fact. My sources were all US officials or Ukrainian officials aligned against Russia. Her accusations must have made Joe McCarthy smile up from hell.
— John Solomon (@jsolomonReports) November 21, 2019
Fiona Hill suggested my Ukraine stories were Russian propaganda. If she’s such an expert she would know my main character Yuriy Lutsenko was a political prisoner of the Russian backed Yanukovych regime and the US pleaded for his release and applauded his appointment as prosecutor

Awesomesauce, kudos to John Solomon.
It is pretty clear to me that Fiona Hill is not a person who can be trusted. What do you think, maybe it’s just me? My instinct says she’s not doing the right thing for America, and for that matter when she held her post for the U.S. Government, neither did she do the right thing for Ukraine. Pelosi needs to reconsider who the “imposters” are. It seems evident there are spies and imposters among us, but Trump isn’t one of them.
To that end, Jim Jordan summed it all up pretty well.
