Giuliani Associate Wants Judge to Let Him Turn Over New Evidence to House Democrats

With the articles of impeachment headed to the Senate…someday, the impeachment trial will soon follow. But even still, there are many answers we're all still waiting for.

Now a new bomb has dropped…potentially anyway. Lev Parnas, who was an associate of Rudy Giuliani is now seeking permission to turn over the contents of his phone and various other documents to the House of Representatives to use in the impeachment process.

The potential new document dump comes as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi deliberates on when to send the House’s articles of impeachment to the Senate. The House voted largely along party lines to pass two articles of impeachment on President Donald Trump earlier this month. The next step, which Pelosi has not yet taken, is to send the articles to the upper chamber for trial.

According to Reuters,

Lev Parnas, an indicted associate of U.S. President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani, has asked a court for permission to turn over the contents of Parnas’ phone and other documents to a House of Representatives panel for use in the Trump impeachment inquiry, his lawyer said on Monday.

Lawyer Joseph Bondy said in a tweet that the Justice Department on Tuesday would be producing the documents and the contents of the phone seized from Parnas when he was arrested in October.

The government “does not object” to Parnas handing over the documents to the House Intelligence Committee, subject to approval by the court, Bondy wrote in a letter to U.S. District Judge Paul Oetken in New York.

Parnas, a Ukraine-born U.S. citizen, was charged alongside another Florida businessman, Belarus-born Igor Fruman, with illegally funneling money to a pro-Trump election committee and other politicians. Both have pleaded not guilty.

I highly doubt that anything is going to come of this evidence from his phone or the documents because Giuliani is very careful about what he says and does. He's been one of the top prosecutors in the country and knows the law very well. So even IF Giuliana had done wrong, there wouldn't be any evidence of it on Parnas' phone.
