SCOOP: After a private White House meeting with Trump in Dec 2018, Giuliani associate Lev Parnas said Trump tasked he and Fruman with a "a secret mission" to pressure the Ukrainian government to investigate Joe and Hunter Biden.

@VickyPJWard Parnas understood that Giuliani would issue Trump's directives and he and Fruman would dig up dirt in Ukraine.

Parnas' lawyer: "Parnas at all times believed he was acting only on behalf of [Trump], as directed by his personal attorney, Giuliani."
@VickyPJWard In the days following the meeting, Parnas insinuated to two people that he clearly believed he’d been given a special assignment by the President—like some sort of “James Bond mission,” according to one of the people.
@VickyPJWard In the weeks since his arrest, Parnas has become disenchanted with Trump – after Trump publicly denied knowing he and Fruman, a move that was enormously upsetting to Parnas.

He's even signaled that he's willing to cooperate with the impeachment inquiry.
