Impeachment hearing: Fiona Hill, Russia’s director of the National Security Council until August, said on Thursday that it was a “fictitious narrative” that Russian services themselves had scattered. Addressing the Republicans, she added, some MPs apparently believed in speculation about the Ukrainian vote. But these are “politically motivated untruths” that served Russian interests. The truth is that Russia is the foreign power that “systematically attacked our democratic institutions in 2016”.

“The impact of this successful 2016 Russia campaign is visible today,” she lamented. “Our nation is split. The truth is in doubt. Russians have already prepared to repeat their interference in the 2020 presidential election. “We are running out of time to stop them”.

Impeachment hearing

“Russians have already prepared to repeat their interference in the 2020 presidential election” – Fiona Hill

There has long been a conspiracy theory in conservative circles and among republicans, according to which Ukraine was behind foreign influence attempts on the 2016 presidential election, not Russia. According to a server of the Democratic National Committee was hidden in Ukraine. On this alleged material for the Democratic Party was found to have incriminating evidence. There is no evidence for this theory.

Even Trump himself has expressed this suspicion. In a telephone conversation with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky on July 25, which is at the center of the Ukraine affair, Trump mentioned this theory and asked his counterpart to initiate an investigation. In addition, he encouraged Zelensky in that conversation to investigations that could have hurt his political rival Joe Biden of the Democrats.

“Trump had ordered the reluctance of military aid to Ukraine either to express his displeasure that Kiev had not yet launched the investigation, or as a lever to urge Ukraine to do so” – David Holmes

During impeachment hearing, an employee of the American Embassy in Kiev, David Holmes, also spoke in the House of Representatives on Thursday. He said his clear impression was that Trump had ordered the reluctance of military aid to Ukraine either to express his displeasure that Kiev had not yet launched the investigation, or as a lever to urge Ukraine to do so.

Meanwhile, Republican Senator Lindsey Graham announced an in-depth investigation. For December 11, he has invited the Inspector General of the Ministry of Justice to the Legal Affairs Committee. He has written a report on how it came in 2016 to the shadowing of members of the election campaign team Trump, who were suspected of conspiracy with Moscow.
