“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. As Parnas commenceda media tour that includes appearances with Rachel Maddow on MSNBC (he’s stillwaiting for an invitation from Fox News), he described the covert campaign thathe and Giuliani engineered in Ukraine against the Bidens.
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.”
Parnas has a lot to say about Mike Pence, John Bolton, MickMulvaney and all the other characters in the impeachment drama. As for Trump,he offered a simple and familiar declarative: “He’s lying.”
