Fiona Hill made global headlines when she testified during the impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump in 2019. Now the former senior director for European and Russian affairs on Trump’s National Security Council, has published a new memoir tracing her journey from a hardscrabble childhood in northeastern England to the White House. She joins Greg and Jonathan to describe what her experiences, including in the Trump administration, reflect about the most pressing questions facing liberal democracy today.
