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.
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.
The Trump-Ukraine Impeachment Inquiry Report / Report of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, Pursuant to H. Res. 660 in Consultation with the House Committee on Oversight and Reform and the House Committee on Foreign Affairs December 2019.
That stolen election in 2016 continues to cost this nation in blood, sweat and tear$.
Scumbag Junior, Tom Hicks (head of America First), Giuliani’s busted buddies
❝ Two Soviet-born donors to a pro- Trump fundraising committee who helped Rudy Giuliani’s efforts to investigate Democrat Joe Biden were arrested late Wednesday on criminal charges of violating campaign finance rules, including funneling Russian money into President Trump’s campaign.
Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman, two Florida businessmen, have been under investigation by the U.S. attorney’s office in Manhattan, and are expected to appear in federal court in Virginia later on Thursday, the people said. Both men were born in former Soviet republics.
❝ House committees issued subpoenas for documents from the two men on Thursday.
❝ Both men…gave $325,000 to the primary pro-Trump super PAC, America First Action, through an LLC called Global Energy Producers…Fruman made additional campaign donations totaling almost $400,000…That would bring the pair’s contributions to about $1 million.
All illegal. All confirming the sort of foreign electioneering for the Scumbag-in-Chief that the Mueller Report outlined. Meanwhile, every bigot’s favorite fake president continues running from the Constitutional effort to impeach his corrupt reign in the White House. With the aid of willing accomplices in the Republican Party. Of course.
UPDATE: Apparently, these creeps figured out (or were warned) that Giuliani’s water-carriers were in danger. They were busted preparing to get on a flight out of the country. One-way tickets in hand.

The satirical ad, which was spotted on at least one A train Tuesday afternoon, touts the ex-New York mayor-turned-Trump attorney’s “crazy” legal services…”
The ad’s phone number leads to a belligerent voicemail, where a male voice blares, “You have called the law offices of crazy Rudy! We specialize in back channel deals, cable news appearances and will work when drunk!”
Truth in Advertising still prevails in the Big Apple.
The NY TIMES and the Washington POST will be turning up two more whistleblowers. One is from the intelligence community and reportedly has even more and better evidence about corrupt phone calls to Ukraine. Another is from the IRS and has info about Trump and Giuliani getting report(s) on Trumpo’s sleazy taxes stashed in limbo.
Our fake president tries as well as he can to shut down a free press. But, good, bad, or indifferent, he has not succeeded and isn’t likely to.
Tom Bossert briefing White House reporters in 2017
❝ President Donald Trump’s former homeland security adviser slammed the president’s lawyers and associates for continuing to tout debunked conspiracy theories in an effort to insulate the president and boost his political standing.
❝ He specifically took aim at Trump and his longtime lawyer Rudy Giuliani’s repeated echoing of debunked conspiracy theories about the hack of the Democratic National Committee computer servers during the 2016 election campaign in an effort to curry favor for the president…
“It’s not only a conspiracy theory, it is completely debunked,” Bossert said. “I don’t want to be glib about this matter but last year, retired former Senator Judd Gregg wrote in The Hill [“How to Impeach Oneself”] and the third way was to hire Rudy Giuliani.”
Louts rely on crap conspiracy theories simply because a percentage of rote supporters who are too lazy to read up on reality, too hypocritical to confront the truth, love being fed lies they know their fellow nutballs will accept.
