The star witness in Democrats’ impeachment effort is given preferential treatment behind closed doors, but is cross-examined by the press. Reports on Monday detailed how Fiona Hill is being used in chairman Adam Schiff’s campaign against the president.

The former adviser wasn’t even working at the White House during the infamous July 25th phone call with the Ukrainian president. Not only did she not have first-hand knowledge of the call, but her resume shows she worked for the George Soros-funded Open Society Institute for six years.

While speaking outside of Hill’s closed-door testimony last week, Representative Jim Jordan raised concerns about the secrecy of the process.

The secrecy of the hearing is problematic for Republicans, largely because of Hill’s conflicts. She has questionable publications for the left-leaning outlet Vox as well as ties to figures such as Joseph Mifsud, Christopher Steele, Bruce and Nellie Ohr.
