[WATCH] Fiona Hill Says ‘Democracy is Done’ if Trump Were to Be Re-Elected

Most Americans became aware of Fiona Hill thanks to her compelling testimony during Donald Trump’s first impeachment trial. Composed and unwilling to suffer any Republican fools, the former National Security Council official delivered her answers in a straightforward manner that made people sit up and pay attention, mainly due to her Northeastern England working-class accent.

Hill’s testimony made her a target for the right-wing, but she remained steadfast while being questioned. Now Hill has captured that time in a new book, There Is Nothing for You Here: Finding Opportunity in the 21st Century

Hill testified about Trump’s effort to pressure Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky into helping the effort to dig up dirt about then-candidate Joe Biden. Trump called Hill’s testimony at his impeachment trial “a total con job.” even though he conceded she sat in on top-level meetings in the Oval Office.

While Hill spends very little time on her White House experience in her memoir, she does share a few anecdotes, such as when the former president mistook her for a secretary and then-chief of staff Reince Priebus referred to her as “the Russia bitch.” In response to the book, Trump emailed an angry statement to supporters this week calling her “a Deep State stiff with a nice accent.” Trump of course framed Hill with his typical misogynist language, saying he “hardly knew” the British-born Hill and accused the one-time star impeachment witness of being “terrible at her job.”

Hill writes that she remains “deeply concerned” about American democracy after seeing firsthand how Trump sought to bend institutions to his will. But she doesn’t believe he has ever been a Russian agent, saying Trump is “too self-centered” to let himself be anyone’s puppet.
