Trump claims he didn't know about Giuliani letter to Zelensky

Lev Parnas resigns after a court hearing before the Manhattan Federal Court in NY on December 17, 2019. "In any other Department of Justice, Rudy Giuliani would be the target in this situation, not Lev Parnas".

Giuliani was allegedly involved in a push to pressure Ukraine into launching investigations into Trump's political rivals, working to dig up dirt on former Vice President Joe Biden and pushing out former Ukrainian Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch, who was reportedly viewed as an obstacle in obtaining the promise of investigations.

"President Trump knew exactly what was going on", Parnas said in an interview with MSNBC's Rachel Maddow.

According to his electronic calendar, Parnas had a breakfast meeting scheduled with President Trump in September, just days before Parnas was arrested."I don't know what that matters, what they're planning on doing with it", Bondi said when asked about how apparent evidence of the president's relationship with Parnas might figure into Democrats' strategy at the trial.

Parnas accused Attorney General William Barr of being aware of Giuliani's and Trump's actions but Barr denied that he had any knowledge of such dealings. "He showed up at events pretty much everywhere where Republicans were."The Judiciary Committee's release also included information obtained by the Federal Bureau of Investigation when they searched Parnas' electronic devices".

The Ukrainian businessman was indicted in October on campaign-finance charges, and is accused of disguising donations to Republican candidates to advance his personal interests and those of other Ukrainian politicians.

"The Senate should speedily reject these articles of impeachment and acquit the President", reads a trial brief released by the team. "All the House Democrats have done is prove that the President has done absolutely nothing wrong". The two prosecutors also spoke to Giuliani in his efforts to unearth the filth from former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter. He is a veteran of the Israeli armed forces and a trained violist.
