Lev Parnas, turned over documents on Trump, Giuliani, Ukraine. Now he’s talking to Rachel Maddow.

Here are direct links to topics in Part 1 of the Lev Parnas interview. Part 2 will roll on MSNBC tomorrow night. I ain’t about to miss it. I hoped you don’t either.

Devin Nunes’ role in Ukraine

Attorney General Barr was “on the team”

The Fake President knew exactly what was going on

Now, what we originally planned to post for folks to digest about this conspiracy.

The House Intelligence Committee quietly released a new batch of impeachment inquiry evidence Tuesday evening: documents provided by Rudy Giuliani’s fixer for Ukraine, Lev Parnas…

The documents, which include Parnas’s handwritten notes, copies of text messages, and other correspondence, reveal some new information — including that Giuliani claimed to be acting with President Trump’s “knowledge and consent” in his communications with the Ukrainian government.

Quite literally, I happened to be online (this is Wednesday evening, the 15th) Direct-Messaging inside TWITTER with engineers and CSRs from SlingTV over a technical problem I was having with a channel unrelated to MSNBC. I was doing an A-B comparison with MSNBC when Rachel’s Show came on and she dropped the bombshell about her interview with Lev Parnas – accompanied by his attorney. Frankly, my technical problems dropped to second place and I spent more time, a lot more time, watching the recordings from her interview.

It will take the most mind-numbed Trumplicans to deny the criminality of his efforts to slander the Bidens, threaten foreign officials, and in general behave like an asshat gangster. Yes, I realize that also means most of the Trump True Believers will bobblehead their obedience.

And, anyone with a brain and concern for the direction of this rudderless nation – will continue to listen, learn, and support removing this schmuck from office. Either by impeachment or the ballot box.

BTW, the crew at Sling sorted out my problem in about 5 minutes. While all of this was going on.

    “A Republican congressional candidate and former Marine who suggested last year that he was tracking a U.S. ambassador who had fallen out of favor with President Trump was once involuntarily committed to a psychiatric hospital after an incident at one of the president’s resorts and is the subject of a restraining order obtained by a political consultant, police and court records show.” https://www.washingtonpost.com/investigations/gop-figure-who-said-he-tracked-us-ambassador-was-previously-involuntarily-committed-records-show/2020/01/15/5fcd8b08-37c1-11ea-9541-9107303481a4_story.html

    “A week before Germany, France and Britain formally accused Iran of breaching the 2015 nuclear deal, the Trump administration issued a private threat to the Europeans that shocked officials in all three countries.
    If they refused to call out Tehran and initiate an arcane dispute mechanism in the deal, the United States would impose a 25 percent tariff on European automobiles, the Trump officials warned, according to European officials familiar with the conversations.
    Within days, the three countries would formally accuse Iran of violating the deal, triggering a recourse provision that could reimpose United Nations sanctions on Iran and unravel the last remaining vestiges of the Obama-era agreement.” https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/national-security/days-before-europeans-warned-iran-of-nuclear-deal-violations-trump-secretly-threatened-to-impose-25percent-tariff-on-european-autos-if-they-didnt/2020/01/15/0a3ea8ce-37a9-11ea-a01d-b7cc8ec1a85d_story.html

    Lev Parnas Attorney Shares Video of Mike Pence With Indicted Giuliani Associate After VP Denies Knowing Him https://www.newsweek.com/pence-lev-parnas-video-twitter-ukraine-impeachment-1483149

    President Trump on Wednesday vehemently denounced Lev Parnas, the former associate of his personal attorney Rudy Giuliani, saying he didn’t know Parnas and that the businessman was “sort of like a groupie” who shows up at fundraisers. https://thehill.com/homenews/administration/479317-trump-again-denies-knowing-lev-parnas-hes-a-conman
    Trump made the comments during a press conference from Davos, Switzerland, as he attended the annual World Economic Forum. Asked about allegations by Parnas that the president knew of all his and Giuliani’s dealings in Ukraine, Trump immediately shot back, calling Parnas a “con man.”
    “I don’t know him, other than he’s sort of like a groupie,” Trump said of Parnas, who is facing a federal indictment for alleged campaign finance violations.
    “He shows up at fundraisers. I don’t know anything about him,” Trump added.

  5. Update says:

    Federal agents raided Rudy Giuliani’s Manhattan home and office on Wednesday, seizing computers and cellphones in a major escalation of the Justice Department’s investigation into the business dealings of former President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer.
    Giuliani, the 76-year-old former New York City mayor once celebrated for his leadership in the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks, has been under federal scrutiny for several years over his ties to Ukraine. The dual searches sent the strongest signal yet that he could eventually face federal charges. https://apnews.com/article/rudy-giuliani-trump-investigation-warrant-7a413e1bbb819cb52cd402d64a982185

  6. Update says:

    “The FBI warned Rudolph W. Giuliani in late 2019 that he was the target of a Russian influence operation aimed at circulating falsehoods intended to damage President Biden politically ahead of last year’s election, according to people familiar with the matter.
    The warning was part of an extensive effort by the bureau to alert members of Congress and at least one conservative media outlet, One America News, that they faced a risk of being used to further Russia’s attempt to influence the election’s outcome, said several current and former U.S. officials. All spoke on the condition of anonymity because the matter remains highly sensitive.” https://www.washingtonpost.com/national-security/rudy-giuliani-fbi-warning-russia/2021/04/29/5db90f96-a84e-11eb-bca5-048b2759a489_story.html
    “A Wednesday raid by federal agents of an apartment and office belonging to former New York City mayor and one-time Donald Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani has left allies of the former President feeling uneasy about what could come next, according to sources close to Trump.
    “This was a show of force that sent a strong message to a lot of people in Trump’s world that other things may be coming down the pipeline,” one Trump adviser told CNN.” https://www.cnn.com/2021/04/30/politics/giuliani-raid-donald-trump-inner-circle/index.html
