Public hearings in the impeachment inquiry into President Trump continued Thursday, with Fiona Hill, the former top official for Russia affairs on the National Security Council, and David Holmes, a State Department official, testifying on Capitol Hill in an open session.
Hill told Republicans to stop advancing a “fictional narrative” that Ukraine interfered in the 2016 presidential election rather than Russia. She also said President Trump assigned numerous diplomats to carry out a “domestic political errand” in Ukraine, which diverged from national security concerns. In his testimony, Holmes detailed a phone conversation between Trump and Gordon Sondland during which he overheard the president asking the U.S. ambassador to the European Union for an update on the “investigation.”
