         Opening Statement of Dr. Fiona Hill
           to the House of Representatives
     Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence

                 November 21, 2019

Mr. Chairman, Ranking Member Nunes, and members of
the Committee. Thank you for inviting me to testify
before you today. I have a short opening statement.

I appreciate the importance of the Congress's
impeachment inquiry.

I am appearing today as a fact witness, as I did during my
deposition on October 14th, in order to answer your
questions about what I saw, what I did, what I knew, and
what I know with regard to the subjects of your inquiry. I
believe that those who have information that the Congress
deems relevant have a legal and moral obligation to
provide it.

I take great pride in the fact that I am a nonpartisan
foreign policy expert, who has served under three
different Republican and Democratic presidents. I have no
interest in advancing the outcome of your inquiry in any
particular direction, except toward the truth.
