See the new evidence from the Trump impeachment investigation

Friday, 17 Jan, 2020

Donald Trump was impeached in the US House of Representatives last month and is accused of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.

"The House committees that led Trump's impeachment released telephone records and other new material from Lev Parnas, an associate of Rudy Giuliani, Trump's lawyer and a former mayor of NY". 'The impeachment managers represent the patriotism, pluralism and vibrancy of America'.

Trump and his cronies viewed Yovanovich as an obstacle to their blackmail plot (and their efforts to exculpate Russian Federation from interfering in the 2016 election), and Trump eventually fired her past year. "What the heck, OK?" said Sen.

A leak of stolen data could potentially affect the impeachment process and the 2020 USA presidential election in November. "So let's focus on the record".

According to Wilson, "distractions in any way should be considered just that, distractions, and though other issues will come up, they need to be evaluated fairly and swiftly given their potential impact relative to the importance of the impeachment and election".
"Let's take a look at what they had".

The ambassador's firing last spring was at the center of the inquiry launched by House Democrats that led to the president's impeachment.

"There seems to be documentation that would validate what Parnas is saying", she added, "but that all has to be subjected to scrutiny".

Rachel Maddow has landed an interview with Lev Parnas, the former associate of Rudy Giuliani who provided information to the House Intelligence Committee investigating President Donald Trump's efforts to pressure Ukraine to investigate the Bidens.

Ms Yovanovitch is calling for an investigation into the messages.

Parnas received messages from a man who appeared to describe detailed surveillance of Yovanovitch while she was in Ukraine.

Parnas told Maddow that "Trump knew exactly what was going on". The nature of any possible threat was not specified at the time and remains unclear although the Parnas documents suggest the surveillance was a prelude to some kind of action.

Mr. Parnas and Mr. Fruman donated money and pledged to raise additional funds in 2018 - some violating legal limits - for a congressman who was then enlisted in the campaign to oust her, court papers showed.

Speaking in the Oval Office, Trump said he didn't know anything about Parnas, with whom he's posed in photographs.

A lawyer for Mr. Parnas, Joseph Bondy, denied that his client was involved in any scheme to follow or harm the US ambassador, and said that the emails reflected Mr. Hyde's "dubious mental state". "You don't have to know him", Cuomo replied.

"In fact, I would predict that Nancy Pelosi and Adam Schiff throughout the Senate trial will continue to leak oftentimes fabricated information, which I believe is what some of what Lev Parnas put out this weekend all in an effort to clean up the shoddy work they did in the House, the rushed, partisan hatchet job of this impeachment to try to dictate procedures to the Senate". "I thought he was a honorable man". And I hope that the senators do not become part of the president's henchmen'. Parnas said that he never spoke with Barr but that "I was involved with lots of conversations" that Giuliani and another person had with Barr in front of him. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.). He called the GAO report's conclusion "pretty serious, pretty strong".

These other companies included the media production company of President Volodymyr Zelenskiy, he said.

Artem Shevchenko, a spokesman for Avakov, declined to comment on the texts.

And Trump's allies scoffed at the new revelations.

"There's one thing that's been clear from the beginning", Braun said.
