Cornyn Says Giuliani 'Not Relevant' To Senate Trial, Calls Parnas A 'Grifter'

Despite how President Trump’s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani played a central role in the Ukraine pressure campaign, Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) said he believes he’s “not relevant” to the Senate impeachment trial during an interview on CBS’ “Face the Nation” Sunday morning.

On Friday, the House Intelligence Committee released text messages that show an aide to Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) — the top Republican on the committee — in frequent contact with now-indicted Giuliani associate Lev Parnas, which further exposes Nunes’ ties to Trump’s Ukraine pressure campaign to dig up false allegations against former Vice President Joe Biden.

“That’s a relationship that causes many of us to sort of scratch our heads,” Cornyn said, when asked whether he has any questions for Giuliani in light of the Nunes-Parnas text messages. “I’d say [Giuliani is] not relevant to the articles and what the Senate is going to be asked to do, impeaching a president for the third time in American history for a non-crime over events that never occurred.”

When asked earlier in the interview about the text messages between Nunes’ aide and Parnas, Cornyn appeared to characterize the indicted Giuliani associate — who claimed last week that Trump “knew exactly what was going on” — as a “grifter.”


It only took 20 seconds to listen to the video before I was listening to a "grifter"........................who has been in the senate basically saying fuck you to the Constitution, ever since Gorsuch has appointed to sit on the bench, with the help of his #Moscow Mitch buddy and he now whines......................yet again....................what a fucking disgrace........................

November 3, 2020 cannot get here fast enough.......................I mean really not fast enough................

1. Ugh, such lame non-logic he's using. Is doing a disservice to his constituents in Texas

Clearly, he only cares about fox viewers’ opinions in the state. He’s all talking points. The interviewer does a pretty good job trying to hold him to reality, but he just keeps going with his quiet smugness to cover for the willful ignorance required to dismiss giuliani, Parnas, and the seriousness of the impeachment charges/evidence.

cornyn is apparently fine with committing a fraud against the American people. I hope he changes course, but I’m not holding my breath. He deserves to be voted out of office.

2. Nune's contacts with Lev aren't relevant to the impeachment

of Dumpy but having Hunter Biden as a witness is!????????????? Man, relevance has sure changed since I went to law school those many years ago.
