    Giuliani Associate Says He Gave Demand for Biden Inquiry to Ukrainians

    Giuliani Associate Says He Gave Demand for Biden Inquiry to Ukrainians - The New York Times

    The claim by the associate, Lev Parnas, is being vigorously disputed.

    Not long before the Ukrainian president was inaugurated in May, an associate of Rudolph W. Giulianiís journeyed to Kiev to deliver a warning to the countryís new leadership, a lawyer for the associate said.

    The associate, Lev Parnas, told a representative of the incoming government that it had to announce an investigation into Mr. Trumpís political rival, Joseph R. Biden Jr., and his son, or else Vice President Mike Pence would not attend the swearing-in of the new president, and the United States would freeze aid, the lawyer said.

    The claim by Mr. Parnas, who is preparing to share his account with impeachment investigators, challenges the narrative of events from Mr. Trump and Ukrainian officials that is at the core of the congressional inquiry. It also directly links Mr. Giuliani, the presidentís personal lawyer, to threats of repercussions made to the Ukrainians, something he has strenuously denied.

    ------------------------------------------------------------
    I think Congress should subpoena Lev Parnas and Rudy Giuliani to appear to give testimony. If this can be substantiated, it would put Mike Pence squarely in the center of Ukraine-gate.

    After hearing all this stuff about Trump, the conclusion is that Trump is a worse president than Andrew Johnson. So why do some people still go for Trump?

    the answer is a color.

    btw, how funny is it that Republicans accused Obama and Hillary of everything from him really being gay to her being a murderer while they actually support real Mafia like corruption and crimes?

    that's the best part. their true selves are bare to the whole world.

    A good Don makes sure that when the coppers close in it's the Consigliere who goes down. But all roads actually lead to the Don, and soon that case will be made in the House.
