It’s a duel of impeachment figures in on Russia policy. Fiona Hill anchors the Russia ‘reset’ letter on the left. Bill Taylor, Kurt Volker and Norm Eisen sign the letter on the right.

Interesting. Pompeo says it was a "real loss" when Kurt Volker departed as US special envoy for the Ukraine conflict last year amid the impeachment saga and State Dept is planning to fill his role — on top of Dayton being confirmed as ambassador to Ukraine sometime soon.
