Lev Parnas, the indicted associate of Rudy Giuliani, HAS met Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner, according to a new pic released by his lawyer who specializes in this cases, here you can find all the information you need.
Joseph Bondy tweeted the pic as part of a photo montage of Parnas posing with Trump family members. The montage shows Parnas with Kushner and Ivanka, as well as Eric & Don Jr, with Sister Sledge‘s We Are Family as a soundtrack.
Not subtle, message received.
Bondy has previously posted photos of Parnas with Giuliani, Vice President Mike Pence, House Republican Whip Steve Scalise, and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, some in a video montage with M.C. Hammer‘s U Can’t Touch This in the background
All of this in an attempt to show Parnas’ proximity to the Trumps after POTUS said,
“I don’t know him.”
Which by now we know always means.
“I don’t want you to know I know him…”
A White House official told The Daily Beast, who first published the photo, that the image was not proof that Parnas had a relationship with the couple.
“Jared and Ivanka don’t know Mr. Parnas. This was taken at an event in a photo line and is one of tens of thousands of pictures they take every year.”
Um, yeah, OK… what about the personal snap shots with Don Jr and Eric?
It remains unclear if Democrats want to interview Parnas, since he was not included on the list of witnesses called for by Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer. But the prospect was revived this week when CBS News reported that at least four Republicans are expected to join Dems in voting to allow witnesses at Trump’s impeachment trial.
But The Wall Street Journal reported Monday that the documents turned over by Parnas have caught the eye of impeachment investigators.
“Among the messages Mr. Parnas’ lawyer has turned over to the committee are exchanges he had with Mr. Giuliani, former Texas Rep. Pete Sessions, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and former Hill columnist John Solomon.”
“We are fam-i-ly… I got all my sistas with me…”
After our trip to DC, we worked through the night providing a trove of Lev Parnas’ WhatsApp messages, text messages & images—not under protective order—to #HPSCI, detailing interactions with a number of individuals relevant to the impeachment inquiry. #LetLevSpeak #LevRemembers pic.twitter.com/HdHaCyZXIm— Joseph A.
