@MatthewLeeICP @sdnylive @businessinsider @KTVZ @dcexaminer @newsobserver @nakednews @PDXBIZJournal @WashTimes Howard Srebnick: When parties are negotiating settlement of claims, the lawyers can negotiate either a specific release or a general release, right?

#FunTimes to compile arguments:

1- The Bidens... were not/are not under investigation.
2- The Bidens are corrupt.
Go ahead and investigate. Officially. Legally. Get your gov. to deal with Ukraine gov. and launch an investigation.
That's why you have all those branches.
3-But the Bidens...
Non-affiliate gov. person has NO authority to launch investigations on behalf of the US. I.e #Parnas, #Giuliani, #Fruman, etc.
4-Trump was rooting out corruption.
Is that why no FORMAL investigation was launched and everything was a #BackRoomDeal???
5-The Ukraine is corrupt.
So why was aid not withheld by Trump in previous years under more corrupt administrations?
It was.
Show me...
6-He had every right to pause the aid.
No. He didn't. That is exactly the shit he is getting impeached for.

“When you’ve got the president saying it, you’ve got his attorneys saying it, you’ve got all these congressmen saying it, you’ve got all these senators saying it... everybody would talk about it: ‘This #Soros guy.’ That’s why I look at it as a #cult.” 🙄😒…
"#Parnas said he was in the meeting, and that #Giuliani used it to try to get material from the oligarch that would bolster his attacks on Special Counsel Robert #Mueller’s probe of #Trump."…
“During the situation that was going on with the #Firtash case, Victoria [#Toensing] called Ric #Grenell because he was the ambassador to #Germany and #Vienna was in the same orbit there,” #Parnas said."…

|Thread| 1. Is the FBI is investigating a possible conspiracy to commit murder? A plot to #assassinate the #ambassador needs to be reliably tied to Trump’s goon squad, but even the idea of one raises the stakes. @NarativLive

2. #Giuliani and #Parnas pal Robert #Hyde has a lot for which to answer especially with these texts, Parnas proffering and Ukrainian and US authorities investigating. @NarativLive
3. Now let’s talk about this photo. It looks like #RudyGiuliani is calling the shots. @NarativLive

When listening #Parnas interview on @maddow - keep wondering how many of what seem to be not secure cell phone calls were intercepted by foreign intel services or even U.S. NSA? Giuliani’s phone would appear to be a non-stop kompromat feed for a U.S. adversary
With #Parnas traveling all over, crossing borders, openly posting on social media his encounters with Giuliani, talking with Trump associates. Have to think Putin & company knew everything going on, same inside Ukraine gov and likely other nations with advanced SIGINT
Think about the contrast - USG, official State Dep following protocols, securing communications, spending millions to protect secrets, then #Parnas & team just running around everywhere texting, overseas calls, posting on Instagram talking about unofficial official business

🔥#Parnas just corroborated David Holmes’ #impeachment testimony, saying #Trump talked so loudly, Parnas could hear him on calls w/ Rudy #Giuliani. Parnas tells #Maddow he was present “lots of times” when Rudy spoke by phone w/Trump—who “knew everything” about their #Ukraine work
#Parnas says #Pence had to know of #Ukraine pressure campaign. He says Trump sent Pence to meet Zelensky in Poland, using a hurricane as an excuse not to go himself, mad that Zelensky still hadn’t given in to his pressure. So Trump bailed on WW2 ceremony to further the pressure‼️
#Parnas tells #Maddow that Attorney General #BARR was "basically on the team" with #Giuliani and Victoria #Toensing & Joe #DiGenova (lawyers for #Firtash, indicted Ukrainian oligarch linked to #Russian organized crime).

Looks like there's more to look into. 😏

Ya know when ya read through the whole sordid story about #Parnas and #Fruman, Campaign Finance charges are just the tip of the iceberg.
"As part of the probe, federal prosecutors are examining a raft of other potential crimes, including foreign lobbying registration violations, destruction or alteration of documents, aiding and abetting federal crimes, and foreign contributions to U.S. candidates,..

It is exhausting keeping up with these clowns. Who is Rudy Giuliani's friend "Charles"? [Charles Gucciardo] An accidental text may have outed his identity #GiulianiCyberInsecurity #GucciLaw #FraudGuarantee #Parnas…
Homeschooled kid goes to event at Stanford for HS kids, hooks up w/the lawyer (Gucciardo) that “loaned” Lev #Parnas $500K? Then she ends up doing comms for Rudy Giuliani, is a TPUSA Ambassador, Daily Caller contributor, & is part of Trump Victory Finance. Do I have that right? 🤦🏽‍♀️

"The New York Times reported in 5/18 that Ukraine had “halted cooperation” with Mueller’s investigation. The paper quoted Volodymyr Ariev, a parliament ally of Poroshenko, explaining: “In every possible way, we will avoid irritating the top American officials.”
"Why was Marie Yovanovitch , the U.S. ambassador to Kyiv, fired in May? Trump, Giuliani and their allies had been attacking her since *early 2018*, but for what reason? Lutsenko, the Ukrainian prosecutor, told the Hill in March that she had given him a “do not prosecute” order,"
"Yovanovitch said during her Oct. 11 testimony to House investigators: “Individuals who have been named in the press as contacts of Mr. Giuliani may well have believed that their personal financial ambitions were stymied by our anti-corruption policy in Ukraine.”

"The documents in dozens of transfers totaling more than $3 Million into accounts belonging to #Parnas last year as he and his business partner #Fruman jetted into Ukraine and other countries in search of damaging information on Biden."…
"The demand for the documents comes after at least one US bank raised concerns about a series of suspicious transactions in Parnas’s accounts, which had hallmark signs of money laundering and fraud, according to two senior law enforcement officers."
"Among the suspicious transactions is one for more than $250,000 — money that arrived, late last year, as the two business partners were setting the groundwork for the plan in Ukraine and launching a marijuana venture, according to court records and the law enforcement officers."
