"We found out just about an hour ago that, that Chairman Schiff subpoenaed Dr. Hill. She was going to come. She'd agreed to come. She was going to come voluntarily, but he's going to subpoena her, I believe, so he can ask certain questions, and again, keep those secret except for certain things that he wants to leak, the cherry-picked information he wants to leak to the American people."

"Whether it was the Richard Nixon impeachment, or it was the Bill Clinton impeachment, had rights for the minority, rights for the president. And what should happen here is that there should be a vote. If the House Democrats want to pursue impeachment, they should put their money where their mouth is and have a vote."
Fiona Hill, a former top National Security Council expert on Russia, has been testifying to Congress behind closed doors Monday, the latest former Trump administration official to be subpoenaed as part of the House impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump.
Hill wouldn't comment as she arrived on Capitol Hill, but her attorney said she had received a congressional subpoena and would "comply and answer questions" from lawmakers. She resigned from the White House National Security Council over the summer.
She is the first White House official to appear as part of the House impeachment inquiry.
Her appearance comes despite a White House vow to halt any and all cooperation with what it termed the "illegitimate" impeachment probe. The White House did not immediately respond to questions about whether they had sought to limit Hill's testimony.
Republicans called on Rep. Adam Schiff, the chairman of the House intelligence committee, to release transcripts of the depositions to the public
Rep. Jim Jordan, the top Republican on the House oversight committee, said he learned Monday morning that Schiff had subpoenaed Hill.
"She was going to come, she'd agreed to come, she was going to come voluntarily but he's going to subpoena her, I believe, so he could ask certain questions and again keep those secret except for the certain things he wants to leak," Jordan said.
"Whether it was the Richard Nixon impeachment, or it was the Bill Clinton impeachment, had rights for the minority, rights, for the president. And what should happen here is that there should be a vote. said Rep. Lee Zeldin of New York.
"If the House Democrats want to pursue impeachment, they should put their money where their mouth is and have a vote," he said.
Later this week, the committees will hear from a U.S. ambassador that his text message reassuring another envoy that there was no quid pro quo in their interactions with Ukraine was based solely on what Trump told him.
That's according to a person familiar with his coming testimony in the impeachment probe.
Gordon Sondland, Trump's hand-picked ambassador to the European Union, is among administration officials being subpoenaed to appear on Capitol Hill this week against the wishes of the White House.
