Fiona Hill considered 'faking' a medical emergency to disrupt Trump/Putin meeting in Helsinki [View all]

Fiona Hill said she considered 'faking' a medical emergency 'with a loud blood curdling scream' to disrupt Trump's disastrous Helsinki summit with Putin

*Fiona Hill said she considered faking a medical emergency to disrupt the Trump-Putin Helsinki summit.

*"My initial thought was just 'How can I end this?'" Hill told the BBC.

*Trump appeared to side with Putin over the US intelligence community during the summit.

Fiona Hill told BBC News that she considered "faking" a medical emergency to derail then-President Donald Trump's infamous July 2018 Helsinki meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

During a press conference at the summit, Trump appeared to side with Putin over the US intelligence community on the subject of Russian election interference.

Recounting the moment in comments to the BBC for a new TV series on Trump's chaotic approach to global affairs, Hill said, "My initial thought was just 'How can I end this?' I literally did have in my mind the idea of faking some kind of medical emergency and throwing myself backwards with a loud blood-curdling scream into the media."

Trump faced widespread, bipartisan criticism in Washington over his comments in Helsinki, which he later attempted to walk back.
