  1. Her family fought against fascism and she’s going to do it now. Good on her 👍🏻

    • @Ed Dursky “According to a recently-released list of the top campaign contributions from organizations by the Center for Responsive Politics, corporations form a sizeable chunk of political donors to the Grand Old Party.” Lie much? Most of the republican support is from corporations. and the Russian financed NRA. Oh, and since 2018 the republican party has been crushed: 40 seats in the house, losses in Kentucky and Alabama. Thanks for the laugh, and your juvenile name calling is noted.

    • This woman has a right to tell HER truth (as she knows it). People who don’t understand this are not really Americans, so I suggest you buy a vowel and get a clue.

    • @Lawrence Smith, very interesting and 100% accurate.

    • @James Madison its sill a circus

  2. Damn, she cold. Batting down the GOP conspiracy theories before they even opened their mouths

    • Tsuka 2104 She states the facts with complete confidence by knowing what she’s talking about. The truth, coming from a confident, competent, person will bat anything foolish down and will command respect. That is Fiona Hill.

    • Giveme TheDaily trump openly stated and admitted he asked a foreign country to investigate the Bidens. Joe Biden is a current political rival. Those are the facts. If you say they are not, then you are calling trump a liar. Which is it?

      And before you go off on me being a liberal and that sh!t, let me establish that I’m a Republican. I voted for trump. But now I see that he wants to bring the CEO company business model into the U.S. Government. He wants to cut through red tape and be the ONE person that can get things done.

      You typed up a comment that implies you appear to be reasonable, so consider the downside of bringing in the CEO company model into a government. While you could argue that it does get things done faster and can bring about radical change in a fraction of the time, my guess is that you like it – but consider this: Is it possible that you like it bc the current agenda fits your world view?

      You have to know that a CEO model in government is the foundation of a Dictatorship.

      And since the agenda is to your liking, you don’t object. In fact, you find ways to justify it in order to keep your guy trump in the driver’s seat. I believe I’m being fair to your position as a fellow Republican.

      But what you fail to see, is that this “hypocrisy” will eventually swing back in the opposite direction. And this is where I’m going to show you some tough love:

      You allowing and encouraging trump’s abuse of power will come back to haunt you. Are you going to argue if Biden gets elected and he brings in Hunter to have top security clearance without having an extensive background check passed to gain access? You won’t say a word bc you’re ok with Ivanka. And Hunter’s girlfriend will have access as well for a time. Don’t say a word Giveme. Not one damn word.

      Are you ok with Biden declaring a National Emergency against the will of the Senate so that he can divert military spending to fund a mandatory release of particular guns from the American people? Not a word giveme.

      And you’ll not object when Biden tells his aides that he’s declaring another national emergency against the Senate’s vote, to redirect money from the military to fund and pay for the rapid construction of many Planned Parenthood facilities – and to just take the land from the citizens that own the land without judicial courts approval – and if you get arrested, I’ll pardon you. You’re ok with this giveme – not a damn word son.

      The next thing Biden or the next President could do is force feed us socialism. I could go on for days listing sh!t trump has done (leaving Northern Syria and redeploying those troops to Saudi – damn – are you seeing this???) and letting the gate swing back the other direction.

      The bottom line is this: If you give the Executive Branch too much leverage to bend and break the rules established by the Constitution, you are changing our government structure and it’s ability to corrupt. It will be the beginning of the end.

      I’d like to see the Republicans take a stand against trump. Have him step down voluntarily and then start promoting Nikki Haley.

      Many will say Haley is just as bad. I disagree. While Haley may have some similar views as trump, Haley respects the Constitution. She will not approach it as if it were a bunch of unnecessary red tape that needs to be subverted.

      I no longer back trump. He doesn’t respect the office of the President and he doesn’t respect the Constitution that brings checks and balances to our government by design.

      Do what you will. But when the Dems swing the gate the other way – don’t you dare say “these liberals are destroying our country!” You FOOL! NO! It’s you and the short sighted people that allowed trump to blow holes in our democracy! The blood of this nation will be on YOUR hands and the fools that allowed it.

      Tough love over. Do what you will. It’s a free country….for now.

      @Scurra You understand you continue to push bullshit. More people are LEAVING California than entering California, you pay a premium to rent a UHaul in California. I do not now, nor would I ever want to live there under the current Dems. You want to say its better, I ways its worse, and you and other don’t seem to get your option doesn’t make it a fact. I am giving you examples and reasons, you are giving me Dogma…yes the thing you accuse me of…. “Califiornia is better”, and you get that from what? Economy, is it going up or down. Are taxes going up or Down? Are services getting better or worse, are people leaving or staying, coming or going…. You accuse me of Dogma yet spout it.

      Shoplifting is a tangent, look up “Broken Windows Policy”, they are making a lawless state and you seem to think that is OK? Guy runs in yelling and stealing whatever he can grab, “call the police” someone says, the store owner says “he does that about four times a day, the police don’t care”. Yes, tangent about California NOT being a great place to live. You want to go buy a coke and get a show, nice. Crime is getting better or worse, better because you have now decriminalized an entire section of laws…NOT better.

      Innuendo against the Bidans, YES because there has been no investigation I can find. Plenty of Dogmatic “sources close have said it was debunked”. “Sources in the administration say its has been proven false” But you can tell me its obvious and proven and you KNOW just like that Ambassador. Everyone was in the loop, without anyone telling anyone what the loop was. That is a dogmatic answer providign ONLY innuendo, and if you are honest ,that is all the Trump impeachment has gained.

      Please just go back to your safe space and I will leave your echo chamber.

      ​@Alessandro Alafriz The corrupt “get” was an announcement from Zelensky, which was required before the Ukraine got the aid. That is your point, right?

      The illegal bribe/quid pro quo/etc. (what do you want to call it?) was paid off on September 11, 2019 when they got the aid.

      When Sonland was asked about when the announcement happened, he said “NEVER DID”. So please tell me when the announcement from Zelensky about investigating Burisma occurred, because I can’t find it.

    It’s gotten to the point where it’s soothing listening to people who are rational and dignified, not bloviating Vegas charlatans and oil pigs. This woman is a cornerstone, and we are lucky to have her.

    • David Williams | November 21, 2019 at 1:46 PM | Reply

      And I have gotten to the point where it is soothing listening to Neo-Marxist/Homofascists elevating every LGBTQ “strong” pseudo-female who hates Trump and goes before Congress to express how her feelings were hurt.

    • a very noble lady! and now we been warned big time about the russians, and how deadly they can be for western democracies!

    • She is everything the ‘Deep State’ should and needs to be to keep things afloat while the morons take centre stage.

    • As an Englishman can say it’s a shame we lost her.

  4. This woman ROCKS!

    • @David Williams Little Nancy Williams here thinks older women should be ignored because they don’t look like Taylor Swift. You incels crack me up.

    • russell campbell | November 23, 2019 at 1:07 AM | Reply

      @David Williams Knew someone would bring up her looks to disparage her testimony. How did I know? Because there is still a percentage of idiots who will follow Trump to the detriment of their country. If they are that stupid, then anything is possible.

    • David Williams | November 23, 2019 at 2:16 AM | Reply

      @russell campbell It’s not her looks. There are plenty of unattractive people in the world. It’s the fact that, in all likelihood, her contempt for Trump can be traced to her sexual-deviancy. Not cool.

    • David Williams | November 23, 2019 at 1:44 PM | Reply

      @flor wast Age is not the issue. This woman looked the way she looks when she was 20-years-old. It’s a *birth-defect* . BTW, Taylor Swift is bi-sexual, the Homofascists know it, and have been hammering Taylor to show contempt for those that Homofascists deem a threat to their alphabet. Not cool.

    • @David Williams You seem like a stupid person who thinks, as long as he doesn’t bleat anything substantial, no one will find out…

  5. Mad respect to you Fiona Hills for standing up for what is right and the American people.

    Mrs Hills thank you for Standing up to PUITN LAPDOG

      You are of course aware that Putin told the world press, during Trumps visit last year, that Russia had donated 300,000,000 to Hillary’s campaign and he added not likely declared.
      The media should have been all over this…
      So, they attempted to swing the election in Trumps favor?
      Crowdstrike is the company that the democrats and clinton hired and paid to monitor their servers.
      It is Crowdstrike that claimed the Russians had hacked the DNC server.
      James Comey testified that he had requested the FBI to inspect the server hacked.
      Crowdstrike refused?
      They told the FBI to go away, take our word for it….
      The FBI never even confirmed anything….
      When does the left question anything, except Trump?

    • @Tristan Barron FYI, the Brownshirts were right wing Nazi fascist sympathizers. The “establishment” that is the problem are the top 0.1% corporate rich freeloaders like tRump and his ilk. And look at whose kids are working in the administration right now and that’s OK?

    • Are you talking about Obama and Hillary?

    • Get back in the kitchen, ho.

    • @s b This woman is part of the establishment in the swamp, aka. Washington D.C you imbecile.

    Those damn immigrants, eh! Bravo Dr. Hill.

  8. She does not mess around.

  9. Nunes is about to have a second cow over all the testimony implicating Trump.

  10. America is more an ideal and less a birthright. There are many birth Americans who are un-American and many immigrant Americans who are very American…

    • @David Williams couple things 1. The vast majority of illegal immigrants do not “walk across the border” 2. I would never incite lawlessness nor have I done so in my statement. Just as Rome was an ideal and an idea so too is America. If the Yellowstone supervolcano was to become active and render the continent uninhabitable these “american” ideals could be transplanted anywhere else. How is it that you can conclude that my comment under a video featuring a legal immigrant is inviting illegal immigrants…Jesus Christ you people are thick.

      @mayalman _The vast majority of illegal immigrants do not “walk across the border_ A person who overstays his/her visa via car is no more here legally than someone who sneaks through a fence on foot. Yes, Rome was an ideal empire then, as America is a (relatively) ideal country now. But a person becomes American, from a rights and privilege perspective, by law, not because s/he “feels” Americans. Simple question:

      Is it possible for an illegal alien to be American as defined by USA law?

    • David Williams | November 22, 2019 at 9:46 AM | Reply

      @TheRenegadeStarr That’s your opinion, which is why *America* , the country, have these pesky things called laws, one of which being that you are not American, unless you are an American, by law. One of the laws is that you are allow to _feel_ how you like. But it is not true that a person born in the USA is not American.

    • TheRenegadeStarr | November 22, 2019 at 1:02 PM | Reply

      David Williams what you said has nothing to do with my point or an “opinion.” There is no opinion.

  11. Sorry USA but we in the UK want her back.

  12. She is fantastic. Well done. Clearly a person of character, intelligence and insight.

    • Alex she didn’t come to America until she was in her 20s. Harvard was just a finishing school. She upbringing and schooling was in England and you can tell because she is much more intelligent than the usual American political figure

    • ​@Delboy0 Well, she’s an American citizen so we can still take partial credit amirite? 😋

    • Jell O not for education or intelligence or personality type. She sounds and acts very Northern English with her no nonsense honestly. Think Ned Stark. That is how northerners really are.

  13. Never Trumper, eh? Clearly this woman is a seasoned professional. GOP, what the hell is wrong with you?

  14. To Republicans saying that Trump is telling the truth, you’re saying that all of these witnesses lied….under oath

  15. Ramon Punsalang | November 21, 2019 at 5:25 PM | Reply

    America is fortunate to have professionals like her in it’s service. Very impressive.

  16. Fiona just called out Nunes as a Russian operative.

  17. Dr. Hill will be reinstated to her position or promoted by the next administration. She is a champion.

  18. She’s a good example to the Republicans they should learn from her!

  19. She basically told the GOP that Russia is creating lies and feeding it to them like they’re toddlers eating baby food.

    • Fake News will publish any lie about TRUMP or Republicans. They don’t care WHERE it comes from: re. Steele Dossier.

    This is what it sounds like – competence, intelligence, professionalism.
