On Tuesday, National Security Council official Fiona Hill testified that the right-wing narrative Ukraine colluded with Democrats to interfere in the 2016 election — rather than Russia working to help Donald Trump — is a "fictional narrative" and a piece of propaganda promoted by Russia.
One person was enraged at this testimony — John Solomon, the notorious right-wing reporter who covered Ukraine's supposed interference in the 2016 election extensively. He fired off multiple angry tweets attacking Fiona Hill:

Solomon has been a mainstay of the right-wing media sphere, appearing on Fox News and Circa, the former digital arm of Sinclair Broadcast Group, and most recently wrote for the centrist paper The Hill — all the while promoting pro-Trump narratives about everything from Ukraine to the Uranium One hoax. His reporting on Ukraine has been a point of contention in the impeachment hearings, and recently The Hill announced it was opening a review into his work.
