Adam Schiff champions anti-Trump would-be witness despite lawsuit, vehement denials
The Washington Times ^ | January 19, 2020 | Rowan Scarborough

Rep. Adam B. Schiff is promoting a new anti-Trump witness whose public allegations have been met with vehement denials and at least one lawsuit.

Lev Parnas and his attorney have been lobbying to become a star Schiff impeachment witness in a Senate trial as part of the congressman’s drive to remove President Trump from office.

Mr. Schiff, California Democrat and chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, injected Mr. Parnas last week into the impeachment record. He and other Democrats released two troves of Parnas downloads from his various electronic devices including texts, emails and photos of himself with Mr. Trump.

Republicans say Mr. Parnas, who stands indicted on charges of making illegal campaign donations and is under house detention in Florida, is angling to cut a deal with federal prosecutors in New York who have looked into other matters involving the president.

The aim of Parnas attorney Joseph Bondy is to show that his client had a front-row seat to a high-stakes campaign by Rudolph W. Giuliani, Mr. Trump’s personal attorney, to persuade Ukraine to announce an investigation into former Vice President Joseph R. Biden and his son Hunter.

“After our trip to D.C., we worked through the night providing a trove of Lev Parnas’ WhatsApp messages, text messages & images … to [the House intelligence committee] detailing interactions with a number of individuals relevant to the impeachment inquiry,” Mr. Bondy tweeted on Jan. 12.

Mr. Parnas appeared on Rachel Maddow’s MSNBC show Wednesday to level a series of fresh and sensational allegations against Mr. Trump, Vice President Mike Pence, Attorney General William Barr and others.

Conservatives on social media say Mr. Parnas is only another questionable Trump critic whom Democrats are promoting.

The seditious and traitorous DIM/Lefties have gone very, very far off the deep end. What a pathetic display.

Even if he were telling the truth the whole Ukraine thing is unworthy of impeachment. Joe and Hunter Biden are not immune from investigation.

He needs to be removed from office, that would solve the problem.

A glaring example why they absolutely should not give the rats their damn witnesses. They are a pack of shameless scumbags devoid of any ethics and Mitt and his little rinos should be ashamed of themselves for pushing to give them what they want.

The man comes closer to a Twilight Zone or Alfred Hitchcock show/movie character, than a Perry Mason.

He’d fit the Barney Fife mold rather than the Sheriff Andy.

Have you noticed how the Dems and MSM have morphed from “investigating” the Bidens to just “announcing an investigation”? It’s amazing to me.

The aim of Parnas attorney Joseph Bondy is to show that his client had a front-row seat to a high-stakes campaign by Rudolph W. Giuliani, Mr. Trump’s personal attorney, to persuade Ukraine to announce an investigation into former Vice President Joseph R. Biden and his son Hunter.

They don’t want to give any credence to President Trump actually wanting a legitimate investigation of FACTS behind Burisma and the 2016 election involvement, but wanting instead to just announce a faux investigation as a SMEAR on his putative presidential campaign opponent candidate Joe Biden. That makes it a cynical political hit on his opponent rather than an actual legitimate law enforcement effort.

Dems are adamant against the Bidens’ testimony because the extent of their corruption would be in direct proportion to Trump’s request for an investigation by the Ukrainians.

That is what power does when you cannot get enough of it.

He has had his 15 minutes of fame and in his eyes, he is a hero and we all know he is a zero.
