Rachel Maddow gets the Scoop of the Decade


Rachel Maddow has gotten an exclusive interview with Lev Parnas.  And it’s a bombshell if all of Lev’s corroborating evidence is to be believed.  Here is a sampling …

Giuliani associate Parnas says Trump ‘knew exactly what was going on’

The indicted associate of President Trump’s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani said in an interview that Trump “knew exactly what was going on.”

By Phil Helsel, MSNBC — Jan 15, 2020

Lev Parnas, the indicted associate of Rudy Giuliani who has been implicated in an alleged attempt to pressure the Ukrainian government to dig up dirt on former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, says, “President Trump knew exactly what was going on.”

“He was aware of all my movements. I wouldn’t do anything without the consent of Rudy Giuliani, or the president. I have no intent, I have no reason to speak to any of these officials,” Parnas, who faces campaign finance charges, told MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow in an interview set to air Wednesday night.

Asked whether Trump specifically was aware that he and Giuliani were working on this effort in Ukraine, specifically to hurt Joe Biden, Parnas said yes. Joe Biden is among several candidates seeking the Democratic presidential nomination.

“Yeah, it was all about Joe Biden, Hunter Biden, and also Rudy had a personal thing with the Manafort stuff. The black ledger,” Parnas said, according to a transcript.

Watched the interview, WOW. He pretty much named half of grumplstiltskins administration. Like I’ve said before president Pelosi starting to look like a reality. I doubt that but after Lev put mayonnaise mike in the middle of it, hey you never know. That was so damning ole grumpfy has got to be sharting in his grampers. He really has to have some bigly distraction after that, because that’s what he does. Today should be interesting. Can’t wait for the rest of the interview tonight. Buckle up ladies and gentlemen it’s going to get crazy

Riveting interview. Dr. Maddow was superb. I believed everything Parnas said. He seemed quite honest & sincere. Interview was his insurance policy to get his testimony out there in case someone wanted him silenced. The pieces fit together like a puzzle which is what Rachel Maddow does best. When he said he didn’t believe Hyde was a danger to the Ambassador because he was a drunken fool all of the time I felt a bit better. Don’t like thinking our Government would assassinate our own Ambassador for refusing to be corrupt. I like that Parnas publicly apologized to the Ambassador… Read more »
