If Jim Hoft posted it, it's unlikely to be true. And Adam Schiff is not stupid enough to fall for what Lev is selling in any event. Not until/unless it's heavily vetted.

:yeah:

Sleazebags like Parnas rarely have any kind of documentation to back up their stories. There are reasons people like Trump use people like Parnas, and not only because they are sleazy enough to carry out any lowlife plan.

In Trump's case, besides the lack of choices, he leans to hiring sycophants. His need to be beloved puts types like those first in line.

New York(CNN)Among the many guests who had their pictures taken with President Donald Trump at the White House's annual Hanukkah party last year were two Soviet-born businessmen from Florida, Lev Parnas and Igor  Fruman. 

In the picture, which Parnas posted on social media, he and Fruman are seen smiling alongside Trump, Vice President Mike Pence and Rudy Giuliani, the President's personal lawyer.

At one point during the party that night, Parnas and Fruman slipped out of a large reception room packed with hundreds of Trump donors to have a private meeting with the President and Giuliani, according to two acquaintances in whom Parnas confided right after the meeting.

Prosecutors Subpoena Trump Fund-Raisers Linked to Associates of Giuliani
The authorities are seeking more information about Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman, who worked with Rudy Giuliani in Ukraine and have been charged with campaign finance violations.
By Kenneth P. Vogel, Michael Rothfeld, Ben Protess and William K. Rashbaum
Nov. 20, 2019, 8:01 p.m. ET

WASHINGTON — Federal prosecutors in Manhattan issued subpoenas in recent weeks to several players in President Trump’s fund-raising apparatus as part of an investigation into two associates of Rudolph W. Giuliani who have been charged with violating campaign finance laws, according to people familiar with the investigation.

The subpoenas went to a lobbying firm run by a top fund-raiser for Mr. Trump, Brian Ballard, and to two people who have helped raise money for America First Action, a super PAC created to support the president and allied candidates, the people said.

Mr. Ballard and the America First fund-raisers worked to varying extents with Mr. Giuliani’s associates Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman, American citizens who helped Mr. Giuliani wage a pressure campaign on Ukraine that is now at the center of the impeachment inquiry into Mr. Trump.

The recent activity by prosecutors and F.B.I. agents shows that they have cast a wide net as they collect evidence about Mr. Parnas and Mr. Fruman, who were arrested last month. It also comes as the same prosecutors look into whether Mr. Giuliani, Mr. Trump’s personal lawyer, violated a federal lobbying law in some of his dealings with Ukrainians.

Mr. Giuliani and one of his companies were mentioned by name in one of the subpoenas, which was issued to a businessman who was approached by Mr. Parnas seeking an investment.

Lev Parnas, an indicted associate of Rudy Giuliani, helped arrange meetings and calls in Europe for Rep. Devin Nunes in 2018, Parnas’ lawyer Ed MacMahon told The Daily Beast.

Nunes aide Derek Harvey participated in the meetings, the lawyer said, which were arranged to help Nunes’ investigative work. MacMahon didn’t specify what those investigations entailed.

Giuliani associate willing to inform Congress of meeting between Nunes and former Ukrainian official: report
BY TAL AXELROD - 11/22/19 10:12 PM EST

An indicted associate of Rudy Giuliani, President Trump's personal lawyer, is willing to inform Congress about a meeting between the top Republican on the House Intelligence Committee and a former Ukrainian prosecutor. Joseph A. Bondy, the attorney for Lev Parnas, told CNN that the Ukrainian official told his client about the meeting with Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.), the ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee, in which the GOP lawmaker sought to find dirt on former Vice President Joe Biden. "Mr. Parnas learned from former Ukrainian Prosecutor General Victor Shokin that Nunes had met with Shokin in Vienna last December," Bondy said. Shokin was dismissed from his post in 2016 after a pressure campaign from Western leaders, including Biden, over concerns that he was taking insufficient action to tackle corruption.

Nunes is one of the White House’s chief allies on Capitol Hill and emerged as one of the most vocal defenders of President Trump during the impeachment hearing, which he dubbed a “circus.” Nunes’s office did not immediately respond to a request for comment from The Hill. Bondy told CNN that Parnas put Nunes in touch with Ukrainians to help Nunes get damaging information on Biden, one of the president’s chief political rivals.Giuliani has previously discussed his conversations with Shokin and Parnas as part of his work on behalf of the president. However, Bondy’s discussions with CNN mark the first time Nunes has been implicated in the effort to dig up dirt on Biden.

His stupid lawyer will likely sue in state court in Virginia. I doubt it will get to the discovery stage. Ted Boutrous is about to kick his ass in the Twitter suit. Suing CNN and the Daily Beast will satisfy his appeal to the Deplorables, but CNN will have an army of lawyers and the stupid lawyer will not get very far.

Now that Virginia has a Democratic legislature and Governor, they need to pass some strong anti-SLAPP legislation so the likes of Nunes will be stopped from wasting Virginia's precious court resources.

House Armed Services Committee Chairman: Ethics investigation into Nunes 'likely'

House Armed Services Committee Chairman Adam Smith (D-Wash.) said Saturday that top House Intelligence Committee Republican Devin Nunes (Calif.) should face an ethics probe due to accusations that he met with a former Ukrainian prosecutor who is central to the impeachment inquiry.

Asked in an MSNBC interview whether Nunes should be investigated, Smith said, “Quite likely, without question."

An attorney for Lev Parnas, an indicted associate of Rudy Giuliani, told CNN a Ukrainian official informed his client that Nunes met with former Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin last December in an attempt to find dirt on former Vice President Joe Biden.
.............
"I understand a lot of this is about Joe Biden, but the bigger thing is about what President Trump and the Russians and all these people have been doing," Smith said, calling it "a systematic problem that is a threat to the country because of what Russia is doing to democracy."

The intrepid Kendra has posted this already, but for the record:
The House Intelligence Committee is in possession of audio and video recordings and photographs provided to the committee by Lev Parnas, an associate of President Donald Trump’s personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani, who reportedly played a key role in assisting him in his efforts to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and Ukraine, multiple sources familiar with the matter tell ABC News.

The material submitted to the committee includes audio, video and photos that include Giuliani and Trump. It was unclear what the content depicts and the committees only began accessing the material last week.
I found this bit from further into the article interesting:
Sources tell ABC News the tapes were provided as part of that congressional subpoena issued to Parnas, and the former Giuliani ally also provided a number of documents both in English and Ukrainian to the committee in two separate productions, sources told ABC News.

However, some of the material sought by congressional investigators is already in possession of federal investigators within the Southern District of New York and thus held up from being turned over, according to sources familiar with the matter.


Parnas' associate, Fruman, has not cooperated with the committee.
https://abcnews.go.com/Politics/house-i ... l_hero_hed

Recall that when Lev and Igor were taken into custody at Dulles, they were represented by Manafort's lawyer, Kevin Dowling. (How weird was that? Anyone think Paulie and his Russian handlers weren't in the thick of all of this?) But shortly thereafter, Lev ditched Downing for Joseph Bondy. That raised my eyebrows as an indication that Lev and Igor maybe had divergent interests here.

Chuck Rosenberg (who I still haven't forgiven for his assurances that Bill Barr was an "institutionalist") said that he knows Bondy (presumably from Rosenberg's stint as a US attorney) and that he was a "good lawyer." Bondy's website touts him as a criminal defense and cannabis attorney.

Rosenberg has also said that the normal way to handle this is for Lev to get a plea deal with SDNY first, then co-operate with Congress. It doesn't appear to me that has occurred.

Absent further details, this is no particular surprise.

The major media outlets are also in possession of audio and video recordings and photographs that Lev had. This article would be of more interest if they provided some detail to indicate whether these various items are different or more interesting than what we've all seen already.
Thanks pal.
