Fiona Hill is one tough chick. I want her on my team. In fact, she is on my team (and our team) because she’s on the team protecting the interests of the United States of America in Eastern Europe.

The Republicans on the House committee and their President tried to stand toe-to-toe with her and to the other similarly impressive Ukraine experts from the Defense and State Departments who testified. Their mistake.
