WATCH: Republicans and Russia are promoting unfounded Ukraine narratives, Holmes and Hill say

David Holmes, a top staffer at the U.S. Embassy in Ukraine, and Fiona Hill, the White House’s former top Russia adviser, explained during a Trump impeachment hearing, how unfounded theories about Ukraine influencing the 2016 U.S. presidential election are being promoted by both Republicans and the Russians. In response to questions from Democratic counsel Daniel Goldman, Holmes said Russia is trying to “deflect” from the fact that it interfered in the elections and is trying to “drive a wedge” between the U.S. and Ukraine. Hill said she believes the idea that Ukraine meddled in U.S. elections has gotten traction “separately” in both Russia and the U.S. but the ideas have begun to “fuse together” over time.
