“It was all about 2020, to make sure [Trump] had another four years….There was no other reason.”

So said Lev Parnas, indicted associate of Trump lawyer RudyGiuliani, in a stunning interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper.

Parnas scornfully dismissed any claim by Republicanpoliticians that Trump’s concern with “corruption” motivated their Ukrainemaneuvers. “They all know,” he chuckled. “The only thing we cared about was toget [Ukraine presidents] Zelensky or Poroshenko to make a press release announcingan investigation into the Bidens.”

Under that election system, students’ parents would have the right to appoint principals.
