Giuliani Associate Willing To Tell Congress Nunes Met With Ex-Ukrainian
Giuliani associate willing to tell Congress Nunes met with ex-Ukrainian official to get dirt on Biden
A lawyer for an indicted associate of Rudy Giuliani tells CNN that his client is willing to tell Congress about meetings the top Republican on the House Intelligence Committee had in Vienna last year with a former Ukrainian prosecutor to discuss digging up dirt on Joe Biden.
The attorney, Joseph A. Bondy, represents Lev Parnas, the recently indicted Soviet-born American who worked with Giuliani to push claims of Democratic corruption in Ukraine. Bondy said that Parnas was told directly by the former Ukrainian official that he met last year in Vienna with Rep. Devin Nunes.
“Mr. Parnas learned from former Ukrainian Prosecutor General Victor Shokin that Nunes had met with Shokin in Vienna last December,” said Bondy.
Shokin was ousted from his position in 2016 after pressure from Western leaders, including then-vice president Biden, over concerns that Shokin was not pursuing corruption cases.
Congressional Republicans are in on it
At the beginning of the impeachment process, some folks were hopeful that the ironclad evidence would leave some congressional Republicans with no choice but to abandon Trump.
But it’s quickly becoming evident that the GOP will not be won over by facts or testimony, no matter how credible or damning. That’s because, in one way or another, Republicans members of Congress are all in on it.
Whether it’s being directly involved – as Nunes was – or making themselves accomplices by ignoring the evidence and pushing Russian propaganda, Republicans are actively aiding and abetting Donald Trump’s high crimes and misdemeanors.
