Giuliani associate Parnas willing to testify in impeachment proceedings with ‘hard evidence’

An attorney for Lev Parnas, one of the two indicted Rudy Giuliani associates, has said that his client is willing to testify to Congress with “hard evidence.” Parnas’s attorney Joseph A. Bondy told CNN that Parnas connected Rep. Devin Nunes to ex-Ukranian official who could dig up dirt on Biden, and that he had proof.

Bondy said that they were willing with the subpoena to testify. He had also told the New York Times that Parnas was upset that President Trump had falsely claimed he had no idea who he was. This, despite being pictured with him.

Bondy reportedly told CNN, “Mr. Parnas learned from former Ukrainian Prosecutor General Victor Shokin that Nunes had met with Shokin in Vienna last December.” Nunes has denied this claim.

What’s Shokin’s connect to Biden? In 2016, he was removed from his post from leaders in the West (including the then vice president Biden) over Shokin neglecting corruption cases.

The willingness to testify comes after The Daily Beast reported, linking Parnas, Nunes and the Ukrainian official that was once forced out by Biden. Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) also referred to this particular news story in the impeachment proceedings on Thursday.

This puts Nunes in a tough spot seeing as he is one of President Trump’s key supporters, standing up for Trump and going as far as calling the entire impeachment inquiry a “circus.”

So, as Bondy says, #LetLevSpeak.
