And now for a little Lev-ity

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Lev Parnas, an indicted Ukrainian-American businessman who has ties to President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, is now prepared to comply with requests for records and testimony from congressional impeachment investigators, his lawyer told Reuters on Monday.

Ruh roh! Maybe ol’ Lev might want to lay low. His old buddy Rudy could give him some pointers on disguises.

Parnas, who helped Giuliani look for dirt on Trump’s political rival, former Vice President Joe Biden, is a key figure in the impeachment inquiry that is examining whether Trump abused his office for personal political gain.

His apparent decision to work with the congressional committees represents a change of heart. Parnas rebuffed a request from three House of Representatives committees last month to provide documents and testimony.

Giuliani did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

His previous lawyer, John Dowd, wrote to the committees in early October complaining that their requests for documents were “overly broad and unduly burdensome.”

Parnas pleaded not guilty in Manhattan federal court last month to being part of a scheme that used a shell company to donate money to a pro-Trump election committee and illegally raise money for a former congressman as part of an effort to have the president remove the U.S. ambassador to Ukraine.

The indictment does not address the issues involved in the impeachment inquiry.

Parnas would be a crucial witness if he were to cooperate. He has said he played a key role in connecting Giuliani to Ukrainian officials during Giuliani’s investigation into Biden and his son Hunter.

  1. If he disguises himself to look like that, he’ll be safe. It’s too disturbing to approach.

    Can’t Trump get better hatchet men than these bumblers?

    • It’s the gang that couldn’t shoot straight. With a consigliere like Rudy and cartoon characters like Roger Stone and Lev and Igor, what can you expect. It’s like a Leslie Nielson-type parody of The Godfather. Instead of “Speak Softly, Love” as the theme song, they should just use “Yakety Sax” from the Benny Hill Show.

  2. Hooo boy. The intrigue just keeps getting better. I wonder how many more shell companies there are/were that gave money to Twittler’s campaign. I haven’t seen any new “speeches/ comments given to Mr. G. in a few weeks but maybe I missed him since I disconnected from cable TV. The news was making me sick so I just shut the dang TV off. I read the news on Internet. It is probably now the best way, but oh well. I also read the papers and thankfully my hometown paper has more of a liberal slant.
