Hill says there was "a different channel" regarding Ukraine
National Security Council expert Fiona Hill testified Thursday that there was a "different channel" at work in the State Department with regard to Ukraine. Republican counsel Stephen Castor asked Hill why she did not think U.S. policy towards Ukraine was headed in the right direction when she left her post. Hill said she was concerned about former Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch's removal and about what she called "a different channel in operation in relation to Ukraine. ... One that was domestic and political in nature, and that was very different from the channel, or loop... that I and my colleagues were in."
