President Donald Trump’s former top Russia aide testified on Monday before House impeachment investigators, as Democrats accelerate efforts to unearth the facts of Rudy Giuliani’s shadow diplomacy with top Ukrainian officials.

Democrats viewed Fiona Hill’s closed-door testimony before the House Intelligence, Foreign Affairs and Oversight committees as critical to their understanding of the extent to which Giuliani, the president’s personal attorney, bypassed official U.S. government channels by pressuring Ukrainian officials to dig up dirt on former Vice President Joe Biden, Trump’s possible opponent in the 2020 presidential election.

Details of Hill’s testimony were closely guarded, as Democrats vehemently defended the secrecy of the evidence-gathering process. Republicans, meanwhile, renewed their attacks over the impeachment procedures, accusing Democrats of keeping witness transcripts under lock and key and depriving the public of an opportunity to hear the evidence.
