House Intel Committee Has Obtained Audio Tapes Of Giuliani’s Associate Lev Parnas: Report
The House Intelligence Committee has obtained audio recordings of Rudy Giuliani’s associate Lev Parnas, ABC News reported Sunday afternoon.
“We have subpoenaed Mr. Parnas and Mr. [Igor] Fruman for their records. We would like them to fully comply with those subpoenas,” House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) told CNN Sunday.
Parnas revealed this week that he has extensive evidence of President Donald Trump and his lawyer Rudy Giuliani involved in the Ukraine scandal.
After Parna’s arrest, Trump attempted to distance himself from the Ukraine scandal by saying that he didn’t know Parnas and Fruman. It was a move that reportedly got Parnas “very upset.”
“Mr. Parnas was very upset by President Trump’s plainly false statement that he did not know him,” Parna’s attorney Joseph Bondy told The New York Times.
It turns out, however, Parnas evidently had recordings as well as documents that he turned over to Congress.
“His evidence and potential testimony is non-partisan, and not intended to be part of a battle between the left and the right, but rather an aid in the determination by our government of what is in the best interests of our nation,” said Parnas’ attorney Joseph Bondy.
Parna’s associate Igor Fruman has not cooperated with the committee yet.
