Congress continues to fish for dirt against Trump. Key witness, Lev Parnas, agrees to cooperate with impeachment investigations.
Congress has been trying to impeach Trump for a while now but getting hardcore evidence against him has been difficult. Now, Lev Parnas, a businessman who was indicted in relation to the Ukraine scandal, has agreed to testify against Trump and present evidence against him. Parnas was chosen to testify because of his close ties with Rudy Giuliani, Trump’s personal lawyer.
Parnas to Testify Before Congress
Just before the news about Parnas’ plans to testify was announced, everyone was focused on the revised testimony of Gordon Sondland, the United States’ ambassador to Europe. The document stated that Trump’s administration was trying to secure a “quid pro quo” in Ukraine. In response, the White House denied a quid pro quo with Ukraine insisting that the president didn’t make any such arrangements during his call to Ukraine on the 25th of July.
Meanwhile, Trump is still 100% focused on his reelection campaign. On Monday, he visited Kentucky for his rally. During the rally, he criticized the media, Hunter Biden and said that he could serve up to 21 years in the Oval Office if he is strong enough to keep going.
Congress is trying to wrap up the impeachment process before next year’s election. A jury selection is already on the way for one of Trump’s strongest allies, Roger Stone. Stone was arrested in January and charged with witness tampering, lying to Congress and obstruction of justice. The 67-year-old is one of Trump’s oldest friends who served as his adviser during his campaign in 2016.
Parnas will be made to testify in front of politicians in full cooperation. Rudy Giuliani and Lev Parnas both allegedly tried to uncover scandalous information about Joe Biden, one of the candidates for the 2020 election.
