Rudy Giuliani’s two Ukranian-American pals are both under investigation by federal officials for alleged criminal conspiracy.

One of those associates, Lev Parnas, abruptly turned around last week and agreed to cooperate with the impeachment inquiry.

It now seems he is also willing to spill the beans on other matters as well.

Parnas’s lawyer has now told the Daily Beast he also helped arrange meetings and calls in Europe last year for Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA), the ranking Republican on the House Intelligence Committee. Nunes—a “Trump lap dog” as CNN put it—has been aggressively trying to dismiss the impeachment inquiry.

Congressional records show Nunes traveled to Europe from Nov. 30 to Dec. 3, 2018. Three of his aides—Harvey, Scott Glabe, and George Pappas—traveled with him, per the records. U.S. government funds paid for the group’s four-day trip, which cost just over $63,000.

It had not been known earlier that Lev Parnas had connections to Devin Nunes’ team.

“Nunes aide Derek Harvey participated in the meetings, the lawyer said, which were arranged to help Nunes’ investigative work,” the The Daily Beast reported.

“This isn’t a scandal. It’s a crime syndicate,” as Center for American Progress President tweeted:

The Ukranian-American businessman was arrested with his associate on federal charges of violating campaign-finance laws through a big donation to President Trump’s official super PAC.

They are also accused of raising money for Representative Pete Sessions (R-TX) as part of a scheme to have the U.S. ambassador to Ukraine removed from office.

Devin Nunes’s office did not respond to The Daily Beast for comment.
