Lev Parnas Blasts President Trump During Wild Rachel Maddow Interview

Parnas is facing a fairly serious sentence in his own case, and that could very well have prompted this recent outburst.

The impeachment trial in the Senate is set to get underway come Tuesday, signaling a path to closure for the President and his Republican Party.  But that doesn’t mean that there won’t be any surprises along this last stretch of road.

Case in point:  An indicted acquaintance of Rudy Giuliani, Lev Parnas, is now singing like a canary to everyone and anyone, quite publicly.

From his recent appearance on The Rachel Maddow Show on MSNBC:

“He was aware of all my movements. I wouldn’t do anything without the consent of Rudy Giuliani or the president. I have no intent, I have no reason to speak to any of these officials,” Parnas, who faces campaign finance charges, told MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow in an interview that aired Wednesday night.

“I mean, they have no reason to speak to me. Why would President Zelenskiy’s inner circle or Minister Avakov or all these people or President Poroshenko meet with me? Who am I? They were told to meet with me. And that’s the secret that they’re trying to keep. I was on the ground doing their work,” Parnas said.

This statement flies in direct contradiction to the defense employed by the White House, in which the President was wholly unaware of the specifics of the Rudy Giuliani-led foreign relations junket.

Parnas continued…

Asked whether Trump specifically was aware that he and Giuliani were working on the effort in Ukraine specifically to hurt Joe Biden, Parnas said yes. Biden is among several candidates seeking the Democratic presidential nomination.

“Yeah, it was all about Joe Biden, Hunter Biden, and also Rudy had a personal thing with the Manafort stuff. The black ledger,” Parnas said.

The timing of these allegations is profound to say the least.

Parnas is already indicted and awaiting a heap of legal trouble, and ratting out the President’s men may seem like a surefire way for him to lighten the litigious load.
