    “Who is Dmytro Firtash? The man linked to $1 million loan to Giuliani ally has a shadowy past : In September, one month before Lev Parnas was indicted on campaign finance charges, his wife received wire transfers from a bank account in Russia.” https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/who-is-dmytro-firtash-the-man-linked-to-dollar1-million-loan-to-giuliani-ally-has-a-shadowy-past/ar-BBZjZIi
    According to Parnas and a senior U.S. official, Firtash’s lawyers, Giuliani associates Joe diGenova and Victoria Toensing, were unable to convince Attorney General William Barr to intervene in the Firtash case.
    The alleged scheme, one former U.S. official told NBC News, was stunning in its audacity.
    “Think of it this way,” said the official, who has deep knowledge of Ukraine’s politics and Firtash’s history. “You have the president’s personal lawyer trying to get the president’s official lawyer, the attorney general, to get the Justice Department to drop charges against an oligarch supported by Russia. That’s what was happening.”

    A nearly 90-minute recording released Saturday of President Donald Trump at a 2018 donor dinner at the Trump Hotel in Washington D.C. that included indicted businessmen he has claimed he doesn’t know features Trump speaking animatedly about removing the US ambassador to Ukraine — at one point stating, “Get rid of her!” https://www.cnn.com/2020/01/25/politics/recording-trump-lev-parnas-igor-fruman-ukraine-ambassador/index.html
    The tape was shared publicly by an attorney for Lev Parnas, the Soviet-born businessman who subsequently worked with Rudy Giuliani to push for ousting the ambassador, Marie Yovanovitch. She was ultimately removed from her post in April 2019.
    About 42 minutes into the hour-long video the President says “Get her out tomorrow. I don’t care,” “Get her out tomorrow. Take her out. OK? Do it.” https://www.pbs.org/newshour/nation/watch-full-video-of-trump-appearing-to-say-ukraine-ambassador-should-be-removed
    Audio 1:23:16 https://cdn.cnn.com/cnn/2020/images/01/25/2349587192-trump-dinner-parnas-audio.mp3
    Asked for comment, White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham said: “Every President in our history has had the right to place people who support his agenda and his policies within his Administration.”

      While the most notable moments in the recording show Trump appearing to speak directly to Parnas and his urging to “get rid” of then-U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch, Trump also managed to cover several other strange topics. https://www.huffpost.com/entry/wild-things-said-trump-dinner-recording_n_5e2cecefc5b6d6767fd5ad88
      In addition to Trump asking how long Ukraine would “last in a fight with Russia” (a year before he illegally withheld congressionally approved U.S. aid to Ukraine), Parnas and his indicted business colleague Igor Fruman told the president about a Jewish numerology calculation a rabbi in Ukraine conducted for Donald Trump’s name. They informed Trump that the numbers that correspond to the letters in his name add up to 424, which they informed the president has the same values as the words “Messiah, Son of David.”
      “It’s like a miracle,” said Fruman. “It’s exactly the number.” Parnas noted: “Messiah is the person that comes to save the whole world. It’s like you’re the savior.”
      Trump seemed confused. “What is that?” he asked. “What other numbers you got?”
      Parnas tells Trump to ask his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, about the numerological gift. “He’ll explain it to you,” Parnas says.
      Kushner is the grandson of Holocaust survivors and reportedly practices Orthodox Judaism, as does his wife, Trump’s elder daughter, Ivanka.
      Trump, however, appears uninterested in the gift and quickly changes the subject to boast about how he supposedly built a new United States embassy in Jerusalem, Israel, for only $150,000. In fact, according to a CNN report, in June 2018 — just two months after the secretly recorded dinner — the State Department awarded a $21.2 million contract to a Maryland firm, for upgrades to the building in Jerusalem. https://www.inquisitr.com/5855784/recording-lev-parnas-donald-trump-messiah/
