Lawfare's Quinta Jurecic on what's next for the January 6th Committee and the steps Congress can take to safeguard American democracy.
Americans were introduced to Russia expert Fiona Hill during President Trump’s first impeachment inquiry. The foreign policy veteran memorably answered question after question before the House Intelligence Committee about what she called “the political errand” Trump appointees were running in Ukraine.
During that testimony she also spoke of her background – a coal miner’s daughter from northeast England, she came to the U.S. on a scholarship to attend Harvard, became one of the country’s foremost experts on Russia and worked on national security issues under three presidents.
In a new memoir, “There is Nothing for You Here,” Hill connects her own life story to this political moment. She argues that declining opportunity in the U.S. has contributed to a slide toward autocracy.
- Fiona Hill Senior fellow, Center on the United States and Europe in the Foreign Policy program at Brookings; former deputy assistant to the president and senior director for European and Russian affairs on the National Security Council; author of "There Is Nothing for You Here"
