Trump moves to name Fiona Hill as top Russia adviser
US President Donald Trump is moving to name Fiona Hill, a former intelligence officer, as his top Russia adviser, according to a person familiar with the matter, Bloomberg reported.
Hill, a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution who worked at the National Intelligence Council from 2006 to 2009, is in line to become White House senior director for Europe and Russia, said the person, who asked not to be identified because the appointment hasn’t been made official.
Hill declined to comment on her selection, which was reported earlier by Foreign Policy magazine, when reached by text message on Thursday. Hill was a national intelligence officer for Russia and Eurasia at the National Intelligence Council.
