Read opening statements of Fiona Hill and David Holmes for Trump impeachment hearing

Hill warned of "fictional narrative" that Ukraine meddled in the 2016 election.

She was joined by David Holmes, the counsel for political affairs at the U.S. embassy in Ukraine, who on Friday, behind closed doors and under subpoena, described a phone conversation he said he overheard between President Donald Trump and EU Amb. Gordon Sondland about "the investigations."
