WASHINGTON (WFLA) – The House Intelligence Committee is set to resume public impeachment hearings again on Thursday morning. Current and former officials have been testifying this week in the impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump.
Here are the latest updates from Washington (Latest updates will appear at top, all times ET):
8:30 a.m. – Fiona Hill’s opening statement has been released online.
According to a document obtained by NBC News and CNN, Hill is expected to confront the House Intelligence Committee about what she’s calling a conspiracy.
“Based on questions and statements I have heard, some of you on this committee appear to believe that Russia and its security services did not conduct a campaign against our country – and that perhaps, somehow, for some reason, Ukraine did,” the statement says. “This is a fictional narrative that has been perpetrated and propagated by the Russian security services themselves.”
Host J.B. Biunno and political reporter Evan Donovan will break down this week’s hearings beginning at 8:30 a.m. ET Thursday. They will be joined by political analysts to provide in-depth analysis of the proceedings.
Fiona Hill, a former White House Russia expert and Mr. David Holmes, Political Counselor, U.S. Embassy in Kyiv, Ukraine will testify beginning at 9 a.m. ET.
