WATCH: ‘I am an American by choice,’ Fiona Hill says | Trump impeachment hearings

2 min read

Fiona Hill, the White House’s former top Russia adviser, told House lawmakers on
Nov. 21 that though she was born in the UK, she and her family have “deep ties” to the United States. Speaking during the fifth day of public hearings in the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump, Hill took the time to provide a bit of her background, saying, “I am an American by choice, having become a citizen in 2002.” Hill said several of her family members fought along American soldiers in wars against fascism during World War II. Hill also noted her father’s dream of coming to America from England, but ultimately wasn’t able to make the move. “While his dream of emigrating to America was thwarted, my father loved America, its culture, its history and its role as a beacon of hope in the world. He always wanted someone in the family to make it to the United States,” Hill said. Hill added that she was able to make her way to the U.S. thanks to a graduate student scholarship, saying, “I can say with confidence that this country has offered for me opportunities I never would have had in England.”
