    Parnas pressure grows on Senate GOP

    Parnas pressure grows on Senate GOP | TheHill

    Pressure is growing on Senate Republicans to call Lev Parnas, an associate of President Trumpís personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani, to testify in the impeachment trial.

    Democrats are opening the door to hearing from Parnas as a witness at the impeachment trial after an explosive round of media interviews and new evidence released by House Democrats, which details Parnasís role in trying to convince the Ukrainian government to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden.
    ================================================== =
    Having seen a good deal of his interview by Rachel Maddow the other nights, he paints a picture of a vast Trump-led conspiracy between Trump. Barr, Giuliani, himself & others in the Administration. Leave him & others with inside knowledge of this mess out as witnesses makes a sham out of the Constitution.

    The democrats knew about Parnas months ago.
    You have to wonder why the democrats did not call him during their top notch investigation.
    Can we say huge credibility problems.

    What do you mean, “the Democrats knew about Parnas months ago”? What did they know about him?

    Whomever hosts Maddow should pay to air that interview - or the best bits - as advertisement on Fox News, between segments, particularly Hannity, Fox & Friends, and ****er Carlson

    How about Giuliani? He can't use lawyer-client privilege to keep him from being forced to testify about the things he did as Trump's bag man in Ukraine. Nothing legal involved in being part of a conspiracy.

    Wasn't Parnas allegedly told not to testify to congress by Dowd and the Whitehouse? In fact asked to sacrifice himself for the president before he was thrown under the bus? Aren't there texts to show this?
    The people who hid Anne Frank were breaking the law. The people who killed her were following it.

    Problem is this whole mess seems to be making him more popular amongst his under-educated followers. Dems have to take the gloves off.

    I still say a sham trial where Trump is acquitted could be a gift to the dems in the fall. A minority of voters voted for him in 2016 along with the help of the electoral college. Many who voted for him knew him as an unknown quality votes essentially anything but Clinton. That is not the case this time. There is abundant dirty laundry on him now and Clinton is not running.

    I can hear him now claiming he was 'exonerated', not acquitted. Big difference but most non-lawyers can't tell the difference. As Mr Person. I believe he was in a bar once.
