*Tweet* *Tweet* goes the canary! Lev Parnas will comply




Breaking via Reuters: Lev Parnas, the indicted Ukrainian-American businessman who has ties to Rudy Giuliani, is now prepared to comply with requests for records and testimony from congressional impeachment investigators, his lawyer told Reuters. https://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-trump-impeachment-parnas-exclusiv/exclusive-giuliani-associate-now-willing-to-comply-with-trump-impeachment-inquiry-lawyer-idUSKBN1XE297


WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Lev Parnas, an indicted Ukrainian-American businessman who has ties to President Donald Trumpís personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, is now prepared to comply with requests for records and testimony from congressional impeachment investigators, his lawyer told Reuters on Monday.

Parnas, who helped Giuliani look for dirt on Trumpís political rival, former Vice President Joe Biden, is a key figure in the impeachment inquiry that is examining whether Trump abused his office for personal political gain.

His apparent decision to now work with the congressional committees represents a change of heart. Parnas rebuffed a request from three House of Representatives committees last month to provide documents and testimony.

ďWe will honor and not avoid the committeeís requests to the extent they are legally proper, while scrupulously protecting Mr Parnasí privileges including that of the Fifth Amendment
,Ē said the lawyer, Joseph Bondy, referring to his clientís constitutional right to avoid self-incrimination.

27. Butina was Putin's hand maiden

Trump wouldn't do anything to her, and really didn't, just gave her a month of talks, then let her go home......
She more than accomplished her job.........

Parnas will come back, fall under the Trump cloak of protection. Besides, what will the Dems be able to accomplish?
Make him testify and then turn him free like the rest???????

I don't know law, but who arrests and prosecutes? The DOJ? good luck with that. Trump owns the DOJ if that isn't evident by now.......

30. Trump doesn't own the DOJ. The DOJ, and the rest of the

members of the long running right wing coup own Trump.

Barr is a high ranking member in that crew.

After investigators have the goods on you, they don't need your cooperation unless you have some really good evidence to peddle.

They all know this, they have been behaving this way since they got their first taste of $$$$$$$, I suspect a shit ton of people who suddenly "care" about this fucking situation will be wanting to "help."

Let the show begin!

Are the prison guards taking No-Dose?

Is someone testing his soup with Geiger counters?

He may try to pull a Manafort-he could be trying to find out what the investigators know so that that information can be leaked back to Trump.

13. exactly. watch for diversion, deflection, deception

He could tell any tale.

Corroboration is needed, but then, we have Adam Schiff and lots of people who are used to dealing with criminals.

that he doesn't know him. He thought they were friends?

34. takes a special kind of self-delusion to think Dirty Donnie is a friend

Maybe Parnas will tell everything he knows, if he now understands he was just a tool to the Con.

16. Check for incoming polonium or novichok

Falling from sealed windows 6 stories up.
Strangulation while all cameras are inoperable.

I'm sure trumputin would love to have this recorded so he could tweet how Parnas died, just like another dog.
(dump seems fixated on dogs. his father?)

22. To "jump out," he has to be accelerated to window break-thru velocity,

and that usually requires being propelled by two Russian gorillas.

31. Fifth Amendment Privileges Cited

In the opening remarks - very telling. Talk about having dirt. Rudy is about to be buried in the stuff. Bye, bye Rudy. Maybe the SDNY is listening and maybe thinking about immunity for him.
