Fiona Hill, a former National Security Council official, gave an opening statement today that was a virtual primer for the Deep State on how to gaslight the American public.
“The Russian government’s goal is to weaken our country [and] to diminish America’s global role,” she said.
Huh? I thought that was the Democrats’ goal.
Hill suggested that Ukraine could and would do no wrong to America’s interests. She dismissed President Trump’s concerns about Ukrainian interference in US elections, and suggested that Republicans were making up the substantial evidence that Ukrainians had played a role in 2016.
She concluded by saying this:
“When we are consumed by partisan rancor, we cannot combat these external forces as they seek to divide us against each other, degrade our institutions and destroy the faith of the American people in our democracy.”
She was talking about the horrible Russians, of course.
I don’t know about you, but I have never experienced any instance of the Russians doing anything to me, nor could they ever “destroy [my] faith … in our democracy.” It is the Democrats who are doing that, and have been doing it for three years, as they first tried to destroy my candidate Donald Trump, and then tried to smear him as a Russian agent for the next two years after he took office.
Moreover, the audacity of Hill in pretending that Republicans are playing patsy with the Russians is insulting. Trump has been as hard on Russia as anyone. Unlike Obama, he didn’t promise Vladimir Putin “more flexibility.” I have never heard a Republican say the Russians did not try to interfere in the 2016 election. They did, just as they always have.
But Russian interference was a mere blip compared to the interference waged by the US intelligence agencies, with their fake FISA warrants, their phony claims of Russian allegiance, and their FBI sting called “Crossfire Hurricane.”
Moreover, the claim of Hill that there was no Ukrainian interference in the 2016 election flies in the face of the facts! I can’t wait for the Republicans to question her. They had better make her face facts, because she is a danger to herself and others as long as she isn’t in touch with reality. Yes, Fiona, there really is a Deep State conspiracy to undermine our president, and you are either a witting or unwitting accomplice to it.
