As we reported earlier, President Donald Trump’s former chief adviser on Russia and Europe, Fiona Hill, called the theory of Ukraine's interference in the U.S. election "fictitious". She said this during an open hearing at the House Intelligence Committee on Thursday, The New York Times informed.

“This is a fictional narrative that has been perpetrated and propagated by the Russian security services themselves,” said Hill, who served until July as the director for European and Russian affairs at the White House National Security Council.

“In the course of this investigation, I would ask that you please not promote politically driven falsehoods that so clearly advance Russian interests. These fictions are harmful, even if used solely for domestic political purposes,” Trump's ex-adviser stressed.
