Fiona Hill, formerly President Trump’s top Russia adviser on the National Security Council, testified that British ex-spy Christopher Steele’s dossier was a “rabbit hole” that “very likely” contained Russian disinformation and that Steele “could have been played” by the Russians.

Hill’s closed-door congressional testimony during Ukraine whistleblower impeachment proceedings from Oct. 14, 2019, was released on Friday, and the 448 pages show that she was upset by much of what she’d seen this year, including efforts by Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani and others to pressure Ukraine to investigate Joe and Hunter Biden and what she saw as conspiracy theories being peddled within the Trump administration, such as those related to CrowdStrike and alleged Ukrainian election interference in 2016.

The article goes on to state the following:

“I’m really worried about these conspiracy theories, and I’m worried that all of you are going to go down a rabbit hole, you know, looking for things that are not going to be at all helpful to the American people or to our future election in 2020,” Hill said. She added that “the Russians thrive on misinformation and disinformation.”

However, the report notes that Hill said President Trump was also the victim of an attack, as she explained that the “dossier” compiled by Christopher Steele was packed with misinformation from the Russians and was meant to harm and discredit Trump.

The report further states: “But Hill also told congressional investigators she was shocked to learn about Steele’s role in the 2016 election and was concerned that the Kremlin inserted falsehoods into the salacious and unverified dossier used by the DOJ and the FBI in Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act warrants to target Trump campaign associate Carter Page. She told Republican Rep. Jim Jordan of Ohio she believed Steele’s dossier was “a rabbit hole,” too.”
