Parnas attorney asks William Barr to recuse himself from investigation

"The attorney general in on whatever was going on there in the Ukraine I have never spoken to attorney general bar. You're about this investigation ever. I have been circumspect. Careful exceedingly careful. Not only that Parnasse knows that. I told a several times that I would make sure I would never go to the attorney general with it so I wouldn't compromise it. That's really on Fox News tonight making his own case while his has indicted one time. Buddy is doing the same Lev Parnassus attorney today requested that. Attorney General William Bar recused himself take himself out of the federal campaign finance case against Parnis. He's also calling for the appointment of a special prosecutor. Claiming prosecutors have refused to meet with him and receive receive information on the president. Giuliani and the other significant players here is a reminder of what parnes told Rachel Matto about the role all that Bill Barr played. Do you know if Mr Giuliani was ever in contact with Mr Bar specifically about the fact that he was trying to get Ukraine to announce these investigation into Joe Biden. Absolutely Mr Bar knew about that. Mr Bar known everything. The difference between white trump so powerful now. He wasn't as powerful in sixteen seventeen. He became the powerful when he got William Bar. That gets your attention as they say and with us for more tonight Maya wildly former assistant. US Attorney for the Southern District of New York now with the new school here in New York. And Rick Wilson Longtime Republican strategists co-founder of the Lincoln Project A SUPERPAC created created by conservatives with the aim of defeating trump and trump ISM. His new book goes a long way toward that very ideal running against the devil. A plot to save America got from trump and Democrats from themselves. We welcome you both tonight. Maya Wiley in normal times would love to have a lock accenture. Deal with the Fed's New York. Would there be an investigation. Launched as in. Do you hear what this guy is saying about people at the highest levels of of our government. That's a hard question to answer quite honestly Brian. And here's what I mean by that. I don't think there's any question that William Bar has earned earned himself and impeachment inquiry. So that's clear and that starts from his misrepresenting the muller pro report before. It's it's released knowing that Robert Mueller have some issues with the way he's handling it that goes to the fact that he himself has personally flown around the globe helping helping to kind of try to stir up some of the dirt that Donald Trump wants all kinds of reasons that we could list about. Why William Barr himself deserves some scrutiny? In some oversight that's very different from saying in in different world where Donald Trump was not president accident love. parnassus would be would have some kind of cooperation agreement. Or where William Sorry was not attorney general and that's because we just don't know enough about all all the evidence that the US Attorney's office has if your in the US Attorney's office and someone just doesn't have anything to offer you if they cooperate great. Meaning you don't believe they're telling the truth or you have so much evidence that you don't believe they can add to the evidence that you have or both you would have a legitimate reason not to enter into a cooperation agreement with someone and left Parnasse. We should remember eleventh. PARNIS is has some of his assertions and the Rachel maddow interview have documents. Those are documents the. US Attorney's office had and enabled him to share their other allegations allegations that he makes that. He says he believes but he doesn't necessarily offer any directed specific knowledge to suggest just that he could offer anything more substantive so. I think we have to separate out whether there's huge issues of public trust with William Bar and there's it's a question about whether I think the. US Attorney for the Southern District. Berman should cues with regard to Rudy Giuliani because he is the one who recommended Rudy Giuliani for US attorney spot with Donald Trump and appearance of conflict or appearance of impropriety. It is enough to recuse because we have to have the public believing in the institutions. But I don't want to go so far as to say that just by definition because left Parnassus is saying. He should have a cooperation agreement. He should have a cooperation agreement. Rick Wilson at a more basic societal level. When you think about it ah in the last seven to ten days we have come to know a landscaper from Connecticut? Who pardoned the double negative left? Parnis said he has never never seen him not drunk and now the European guy in the Maga- hat with a Belgian ip address. How is it that we we come to meet these characters? Surrounding in the orbit of the President of the United States there are some mystical gravitational force surrounding Donald Trump that attracts the worst griff tres scales scumbags roadside hobos incipient serial killers weirdos. These guys are attracted to him. Because they're like the d the D and E and F level operatives in this world and for whatever reason they feel empowered and it's pretty easy you show up at the trump hotel if you can afford the twenty two dollar cocktails. You're in the club. And so that's why we see guys like hide showing up and that's why you see all these all these other sort of oddball characters always surrounding trump and and and it's also because you know most of the people that that are in this rudy PARNIS orbit in particular. You know they come out of this eastern European whatever version of of of Hustle. Oh they're running is always inflected with whatever the sort of post-soviet corruption vibe and it seems to be very much definitional additional trump's orbit rick starting with you I want you and my answer the same question and I hate that. It's an a negative vein about the impeachment in trial. What are you girding for or resigned to girding for Mitch McConnell to choke this thing out as quickly as he can? There's no other option for McConnell right now if the dam breaks on any vote and the reason he didn't go for an immediate dismissal. Vote obviously as everyone else's covered was that he knows was if he loses one. It shakes the idea that he can control this process completely. So he's going to be very careful. He's going to move as quickly as he possibly can. He's going to try to make this as Dulles he can. Which I think is why as as clean with chain you earlier? He thought he thought he's GonNa win. By moving into the night. I think there's enormous public interest in this but on the optimistic side there will always be more information coming and these senators are not blind to the fact that trump lies to them all the time and that every time. They think they've gotten to the bottom of something with trump. There's worse things below it so I think you're going to see some skepticism building especially as the outside outside coverage continues to roll on in terms of both the story and the other revelations about Ukraine situation I can offer you my upwards of thirty seconds before I have to take our first break. I agree with

Andrew Yang is revealing something tonight. She kept secret for years something that she didn't even tell her husband about for months. It is a CNN exclusive exclusive interview. Let's go out front and good evening. I'm Erin Burnett out front tonight. The breaking news the fate of trump's presidency in saint now in the hands of the Senate all persons are commanded to keep silent on pain of imprisonment while the House of Representatives it was exhibiting to the Senate of the United States articles of impeachment against Donald John Trump president of the United States and with that proclamation Chen by the sergeant at arms the historic impeachment trial of president trump is now underway. The Chief Justice John Roberts and ninety nine senators swearing in this afternoon. We'll all senators. Now stand remain. Standing and raise their right hand do you solemnly solemnly swear that in all things appertaining to the trial of the impeachment of Donald John Trump president of the United States now pending you will do impartial justice according to the Constitution and laws. So help you God. And so they swore and then each senator under signed an oath book vowing to be impartial. Already though a new twist the president now in that high stakes back and forth with one of Rudy Giuliani's associates about his actions regarding Ukraine was lost foreigners. Who says your efforts in your brain? We're all about twenty twenty you just wanted corners. You'll find out I don't know parts well there's going to be an answer whether that's true or not trump says he doesn't know him parnis point point blank calling trump Aligarh. He's lying he's lying. Well someone's lying and it is the Senate job to get to the bottom of Parnassus damning claims which is why Democrats continue to pound the table demanding to hear from witnesses. Montage begins our coverage tonight on Capitol Hill. What more are you learning about what happens here now? The trial has formerly begun. What happens now? We'll lot of unpredictable. Twists and turns are GONNA come in this historic store trial. That could take a couple of weeks potentially could go longer. It really depends about how votes come down on the Senate floor and those votes could begin as soon as Tuesday whose day that's on the Senate will reconvene. At that point they will take up. An organizing resolution set the terms of the trial that organized resolution has been drafted by Senate majority leader. Mitch McConnell All Democrats have objected to that resolution because it does not guarantee upfront witnesses and documents and Democrats tonight signaling that they could start to force votes on the Senate floor as soon as Tuesday to put the Senate on record but Republicans are pushing back and could some who have said that it'd be open to witnesses. Susan Collins of Maine Republican for one so that she would not be open to having those witnesses agree to upfront. She says he wants to consider that later. On in the trial after the opening arguments happened after the senators have their opportunities Sunnis to ask questions so those are the big questions in the days ahead whether or not there will be four Republicans who would break ranks or more with the forty seven Democrats Force Cetera. Ah anyone to come forward witnesses. Also if the Democrats will agree to any Republican witnesses. Those negotiations will happen on the side. So Erin right now. They're going to be side side of put together their briefs argues that are GonNa make next week and then those big votes will take place in just a matter of days. All right. Thank you very much Mono these days of course coarser now upon us and tonight another ran now at the center of the Ukraine scandal is speaking out and Alex Marquardt is out front with the details. The indicted associate of Rudy Giuliani. Turning on his old boss and the man they were working so hard for in Ukraine president trump idolize them. I mean and I thought he was the savior left. Parnes says everyone knew what was going on. In Ukraine president. Trump know exactly what was going on. He was aware of all movements. Including trump during a media blitz. That helped show prosecutors. He's willing to cooperate. Parnes revealing how significant the pressure was in the quid pro quo with Ukraine. Investigate the Biden's or else if day than make the announcement basically there would be no relationship. Parnasse who was born in Ukraine but race in America says he told officials in Kiev there would be no military aid or a White House meeting for the new president and less they announced the Biden investigation knowing England we cared about we were we were. The team was to get his Alinsky or Shaneco or somebody to make on the press. Release the nounce men into the Biden investigation. Also in the balance Parnasse said what the attendance of Vice President. Mike Pence at Dolinsky inauguration no announcement no pence pence would and be at the inauguration and they would be no visit to the White House there would be basically you have no communication. There was no biden announcement and pants cancelled his trip in terms of who knew about what you were doing in Ukraine vice president pence. No of course pence's office responded. That parnasse will say anything to stay out of prison. Parnassus said that when he was just sixteen years old he worked at a New York Real Estate Company. Selling trump organization apartments apartments loved them. I mean he I mean I when when the FBI came to my house Tori my wife embarrassed because they said a shrine Brian to him by May I have pictures. Lower trump has denied knowing parnis despite numerous photos showing the two together every time. He says they'll show them another picture. He's lying he's lying. The administration is also accusing me of lying in these new interviews nobody on TV like that under oath and he obviously is desperate to get attention. Claiming his credibility is in question since he's been charged with four counts of campaign finance violations. I thought they were GonNa shut me up. Make me look like the scapegoat. Go and try. Blame me for stuff that I wasn't done in the end. Parnis insists that everything he did was under Giuliani's instruction and for the President's political game though is the most important thing for him to stay on for another four years and keep the fight going. I mean there was no other reason for doing now with. Hey those major campaign. Finance charges hanging over Parnassus had there is very good reason to question his credibility but pretty much Aaron everything he is saying when it comes to the president Holding up that military aid for Ukraine and that White House meeting in exchange for investigations that lines up with what multiple other witnesses have already testified a two under oath in front of Congress. Aaron all right Alex. Thank you very much and out front tonight. Democratic Senator Debbie Stabbing Michigan who is chair of the Democratic Policy and communications and Committee and I appreciate your time Senator Of course lead partners You know is being charged with Violating the law go to jail for that But presumably thinks he says on other topics if untrue could be Could be used against him when it comes to things like sentencing Do you trust the new information that we're hearing from life partners right that that everything was was about getting the announcement of this investigation into Joe Biden. And that he was doing this at the behest of Rudy Giuliani and the president of the United States. Well Aaron it's good to be with you and I think first of all the most important thing is that this is not the first time we've heard this. That house had witnesses come forward. People have testified a case has been made aid and in fact what he's saying in plain language That In Very I don't know him certainly but he's certainly someone that we should listen to in terms of verifying the other people that have come forward. I also want to mention that you know the president surrounded by people that have been indicted or imprison and in fact today the General Accounting Office also said he broke the law when he did what he has done. which is withhold withhold the aid without congressional approval? So the President I states according adding to an unbiased gun accounting source has now said that he broke the law as well. And we're going to much more on that. In a moment I do want to ask you though Senator Senator. The president said again today that he does not know love. Parnis doesn't know anything about the letter that aren't delivered to Zielinski Presidents Alinsky from Giuliani. Right the letter Guiliani said he had a very specific crafts and he wanted to meet and just a couple of days he only needed thirty minutes of time and he was doing all that with the quote knowledge and consent of the President President of the United States. That is what the allegation is. That's what the letter from Giuliani says. Here's what president trump said about Today breath I don't know I don't know anything about the letter. Do you think this trial will prove the president trump is a liar. Well I or something say that. This whole process is a very sobering wanting to take it very seriously but what you just showed really is laughable able in the sense that we have seen over and over again proved that that what the president said is not accurate it and so in my mind I mean we. It's our responsibility to listen. All the evidence here witnesses by the way witnesses and documents that is is the big question right now and if the president wants to put forward his own case. This is his opportunity to do that. So it's GonNa be at this point I think important and all of us are going to have to decide when we're voting on witnesses versus documents. Do we want to hear the truth or do we want to. Hi The truth and I think that's the big question and it is. It is a huge question. And you and your colleagues took a very important oath today and the quote do impartial Justice Brian by the chief justice of this nation. But like to be honest. Let me just show you hear senator. What some of your colleagues on? Both sides of the Aisle Senators Senators have said. I'm not going to be easy. Impeachment proceeding is definitely about Donald Trump. Who Pretty clearly has broken.

"The show weeknights at nine eastern on. MSNBC tonight we will present part two of my interview with left Parnis. Now as I said before the first part of the interview last night and I want to reiterate now Mr Partners is under federal indictment. He was one of four defendants charged in early October. With multiple felonies related to an alleged scheme to funnel four and otherwise illegal donations to various Republican publican candidates and campaigns including more than three hundred thousand dollars in allegedly illegal donation to the main super pacs. Supporting the president's reelection. Mr Parnell is under indictment. He says he would like to cooperate with the impeachment investigators. He says he would also like to cooperate. Operate with the federal prosecutors who have charged him in the southern district of New York but he is right now out on bond awaiting trial and I will just mention at the outset that I am cognizant of the fact that we are presenting the second part of this interview tonight rather than just diving right right into some of the other momentous and historic news of today including the start today of the Senate trial of President Trump today marks only the third third time in US history that an American president has faced an impeachment trial in the Senate and it was a solemn beginning today the administering of the oath to the chief the justice of the Supreme Court the administering the oath to all senators all of the senators individually signing their names to the oath one by one in alphabetical order. Solemn thing it's a sobering thing this is a big deal and it is worse worth you know. Massive headlines is that it's getting all over the country it is absolutely worth marking this day in history. It is also worth noting that the nonpartisan Government Accountability Office today today issued a ruling that it was illegal for president trump to withhold aid to Ukraine as part of this scheme that what he did there was against the law all for that to be arriving today that ruling from the Government Accountability Office on the day that the Senate impeachment trial starts and this is all a big deal but it's also becoming clear that what happens next in the impeachment of president trump in this senate trial may depend in part on the additional evidence and witnesses who are still coming forward as the Ukraine scheme is coming more fully to light and so onward. Here's part two all right. One of the main questions. A lot of different people have asked I myself. uh-huh have have asked and have wondered main question asked about Mr Parnassus decision to give this first. Public interview is why why he would speak out publicly while he's out on bond awaiting trial right. That is atypical behavior to say. The least for a federal criminal defendant particularly particularly one who has a sentient lawyer. I mean the common wisdom is that public remarks and remarks to the media could really only disadvantage a defendant in his or her dealings with federal prosecutors. Right if you speak out publicly if you speak to the media it's GonNa hurt your criminal case that is the common wisdom for all federal defendants and all kinds of criminal mental trials. So why Mr Parnasse doing well. In this case Mr says that he has a significant in fear of the Justice Department and specifically he has significant fear of attorney. General William Bar for him. That is not reason to be quiet. That is part of the reason why he's making his case now to the public. My understanding spending a longtime with Mr Parnasse. Doing this interview view is that he believes he's safer putting this stuff out in the public sphere. Then he is keeping his mouth shut while the Justice Department knows what he was involved in and they know what he knows and they have his fate in their hands. My only objective is there. Get the truth out. Because I'd never thought I did. I was doing anything wrong. I still you know I. I regret certain things that I did. Because like you know hurting passenger and you know 'cause that was not something uptick but it was part of. It's like when you're in a war. You think like casualties and stuff like that. It's it's it's bad to say but it was it was I keep saying it was like you know being being in the call I mean and when they say organized Kinda I don't think trump was like org. I think he's like a cult leader the braid now the scary part. And that's what I keep mentioning and people don't understand Stand there's there's a lot of Republicans that would go against him. The only reason if you take a look and you know very well because you've been following the difference between white trump is so a powerful now and he wasn't as powerful and sixteen and seventeen. He became the powerful when he got William Bar. People are scared and my scare. Yes because I think more scared of our Justice Department than of these criminals right now because the scariest part is getting locked than some room and get treated as an animal. When did nothing wrong or or when you're not you know and that's the tool? They're using I mean I mean just because they're trying to scare into not talking and doing what God's help with my my moyer next to me that I know we'll go back for me no matter what would the truth and I'm taking the chance. My wife is scared my kids in there. He says they're trying to scare me into not talking. King Mr Par is referencing. Something specific. Actually that I asked him about in more detail and different part of the interview that I'm GonNa show you just a moment But what Mr describes there as a sort of what he says is is a cultish environment him saying getting out of that cultish environment around the president resident now makes him regret some of his actions that thing that he saying about it being like a cult that he regrets his behavior there that applies as well to the central claim at the heart of the impeachment scandal. which was this concerted effort? That Mister Peres was involved in to accuse former vice president Joe Biden of wrongdoing doing and to get Ukraine to announce investigations of Vice President Biden in terms of the information. The allegations against Vice President Biden. Mr Shokhin mix allegations against Mr Biden. Mr Lukashenko also makes allegations against Mr Biden. Do you believe that those allegations were true. When we were dealing with? When I was in the middle of the thick of things I think I was kind of in? I keep saying it's like a cultish environment of being around president trump because like I've been in DC for two years. I've never left the trump hotel type of situation so I truly believed seeing in different information that was handed to us at that time. That Joe Biden was doing something illegal Not so much hunter Biden but more Joe Biden but after are analyzing all the evidence and sitting back and release. What's a call understanding what's going on? I don't think I don't think vice-president buying anything wrong. I think he he was protecting our country and getting rid of probably a crooked. The Attorney General and people use this to their advantage. A lot of rich people in Ukraine have their agenda and they use US here for their own political stuff so I think this is was a big one in terms of material that was handed over to intelligence on March Twenty Second Mr Lutsenko texts shoe in Russia and and there's a translation Asian that's provided by the committee. Says it's just that if you don't make a decision about Madam you are bringing into question all my allegations including about be. So when he says Madam is he talking about Besser investor group and when he says all allegations including about be about reach Mumbai Buy Yes okay. And it's very small or Biden. I guess it could be either. It was always buy them. Barista was just I mean nobody cares about Berea. S'mores Jeff Ski. It was The concern was biting them. Hunter by in that text message to you is Mr Sankoh saying in effect. Listen if you want me to make these despite allegations you're going to have to get rid of this ambassador. Absolutely was he threatening that. If you didn't get rid of the ambassador. He might withdraw his allegations. He actually drew. He withdrew within several times. He wanted ambassador IANOVICH ousted for his own career reasons. He had clashed with her in her anticorruption efforts. That head butted up against it's ten. Let's Cinco and Shokhin both had an interest in getting rid of US ambassador. Maria von Vich. And it's funny because they both don't like each other the Sean Can Hayslett go. And even though I used to be his underling but They say listen. It's it's a different environment over there in. Its unless you live unless you do business there unless you on the visit there and understand that Bribery and it's just a way of life. I mean regular people at the store do it. They'll bribe the butcher together. Better meet piece of meat and it's normal or get better seats at the concert. So it's like away of life over there so the way the structures up and that's why everybody's hoping Zilenski changes it but I don't know how much he could change with one. Says like there's already embedded Bennett. This was Where once you become in America? It's like you become a politician to serve your country not to make money because you can make money in Ukraine. It's the opposite view. Some of these people pay millions of dollars to get a seat as a politician so once they get there. So it's all about the money and it's all about about the power left Parnis a key fixer and figure in the effort to fit up Vice President Joe Biden with accusations of wrongdoing in Ukraine to force the government to announce investigations into Mr Biden to force out to the US ambassador. Marie Ivanovich who was in the way of that effort. Mr Mr Parnasse now apologizing to that. US Ambassador Ambassador Yvonna Vich we dot last night and as I just showed you Mr Parnasse also says he now now does not believe that Vice President Biden did anything wrong in Ukraine and that Vice Presidents Vice President Biden's actions there which Mr Parnasse helped try to turn into do a scandal in his words. Now he says Mr Biden's actions were taken to protect our country and get rid of a crooked attorney. General by confirming firming the nature of his own communications with that official he refers to as a crooked attorney general. Mr Partners also makes clear that the removal of ambassador avant was a demand from the key. Accusers that he and Mr Giuliani and the president and others have been using to make this this false case against Biden the accusers including boatload Cinco Shokhin Wanted Ivanovich Gone Looks Sankoh explicitly demanded to pardon us that the ambassador be removed or his allegations against Biden might be a risk shokhin and Lutsenko wanted Ambassador Ivanovich removed and left parties telling because they were corrupt and she was a force against corruption in Ukraine. And they wanted her out of their way to think about the collateral damage that was caused not only in our own country but around the world and in Ukraine by this scheme to aid the president's reelection effort McAfee pretty clear sense sense of what that might be in Ukraine when it comes to anti-corruption president trump alleged personal role in trying to remove ambassador. IANOVICH before she was ultimately recalled old. We're going to have more on that coming up this hour as well but we started four we get to that. There's there's one other piece of this that I want to foreground here. That isn't specifically weekly about President Trump. It's about another senior. Member of the trump administration who love says stepped in to play a role in the Ukraine scheme at a very key moment the new president of Ukraine elected on this anti-corruption platform right engaged in ongoing war with Russia he's inaugurated in May as the new leader of Ukraine. Heat somewhat desperately needs a show of support strong show of support from the United States government. That's key to the US. Ah the Ukraine in terms of its fight with Russia among other things on the eve of Zelenskaja's inauguration Mr Parthenis told me and the portion of the interview. We played yesterday okay that he was directed by Rudy Giuliani with spoken to president trump about it. He was directed to really turn up the pressure on Ukraine to demand to the Ukrainian government. That's unless they announced Abidin investigation the Ukrainian government would lose not only all US military aid lose all the US aid and vice. President Pence would not come to the inauguration of the new president. Vice President Pence has plans to attend the inauguration. At that point were in full swing..

Shady Deals at Trump Properties

"President surrounds himself with criminals? His campaign chair. His deputy campaign chair is former national. Security Adviser you. You get the picture and as a rule if you're a politician that kind of thing isn't generally a great move but it does offer one surprising benefit when one of those folks turns turns on you you can point to their own shading dealings and say what anyone trust this person and as the president has defenders go after Parnasse repeating the same. You can't trust him line or I don't even know him remember. We have seen this all before with the last bag. Man Who talked about President Michel Com for about a decade Cohn was the Executive Vice President Trump Organization and Donald Trump's special counsel in September of two thousand seventeen profile of him appeared in Vanity Fair entitled. Michael Cohen would take a bullet for Donald Trump. The piece points out cones extreme loyalty to the president quote cone has been described as the sixth trump child. Or as Tom Hagen in this twisted version of the Godfather and sometimes as both Michael Cohen was the president's fixer but that relationship started to fall apart in early early twenty eighteen as news leaked out of illegal hush money payments made to women ahead of presidential election by April the FBI had redid. Cohen's office and hotel room in Hatton seizing recordings electronic devices. Initially the president was supportive of his longtime attorney. Michael lawyer who. I've always liked him respected. Most most people will flip if the government lets out of trouble sorry. I don't see Michael doing that. Despite the horrible which hunt and the dishonest media but on the day after Cohen pleaded guilty to do eight federal crimes including campaign finance violations. Implicating the president directly as an unindicted co-conspirator individual one the president trashed him quote. If anyone is looking for a good lawyer I would strongly suggest that you don't retain the services of Michael Cohen burn months later. Cohen found himself before Congress delivering a warning. I did the same thing that you're doing now. For Ten years I protected Mr Trump on for ten years and I can only warn people the more people that follow. Mr Trump as I did blindly are going to suffer the same consequences suances that I'm suffering. Michael Cohen pulled back. The curtain. On trump world in two thousand eighteen and live parnasse did that last night telling us what an absolute cesspool of conflicts flicks of interest corruption and shady characters around the President United States. We'll talk about that next today. The the FBI showed up at the home of Robert F. Hide just days after the house. Intelligence Committee released text messages. Provided by indicted Giuliani associate partners in which hide appears to be representing sending himself as actively surveilling then. US Ambassador Ukraine revanche high was told NBC News. He was drunk and unserious when he sent those tax. The question you have to ask ask yourself is how did someone like Robert. Hi gain access to the United States and the answer to that was laid out by himself told Rachel maddow how easy it is to get. Close the presents inner circle just show up at the trump international hotel in Washington DC. That's how Parnasse himself met Robert. Hi You met him where I met him at the I think the trump hotel yes trump hotel. He was a regular at the bar because it was like a breeding ground that trump hotel so it every event would be there so everybody would hang out there afterwards. Everybody all the meetings would be there. So it's basically you would see the same people every day or the same congressman that supported the president would be there and nobody else so he was a fixture on site he was always there and but he was always drunk. What you got in the stands where the trump hotel it's like one a big Cesspool and there's really hard to keep any secrets for more on that Cesspool joined by independent journalists sack efforts in the last two years staking out the trump hotel and writing up what he saw in the eleven hundred Pennsylvania newsletter and an article for Vanity Fair titled Power Tripping the swamp how trump's DC hotel swallowed Washington Zach. This is your beep deep probably more than it is anyone's beaten. I'm curious how is description. Squared with what you've been reporting over the last two years it's spot on. I mean Robert Hyde was on my radar Ariza early as April e. You look at his instagram. And they were pictures of him with the president pictures of him with the vice president all sorts of important people and for him it actually transcended ended the trump hotel. I think he was at six different trump properties. But if you want to project important you can just go hang out at the hotel and take some pictures one of the things that has struck me about about this where we are right now. The impeachment is usually it is very hard to get to the present United States and and and that's for that can be really maddening for people when you're trying to if you're working in the in the staff of the White House and you want to get the president something on his agenda. It's hard to get to him This president seems remarkably easy to get to buy all kinds of people with all kinds of agendas and it seems like his properties are the nexus of this this kind of soft corruption absolutely. I spoke to the president at the trump trump hotel. I was staying there researching one of my articles in for the cost of a nice steak dinner I was able to chat with the president which mix for really good social media posts there so if you you just you know hanging out there take your pictures with your Kevin McCarthy user Mike Pence's as they go back and forth now they're usually not upfront in the bar they're usually going back and forth from the entrance way way to private rooms but see them coming and going you can collect enough pictures and you look like you're really important and then what do you do with that really important the look like you're really important. Well well I think with Robert Heidi. He's using it to run for Congress and there are certainly some other people who are running for Congress typically Republican challengers who seem to be collecting pictures of themselves to the trump hotel. But I've seen some people move from the lobby where the lesser swamp. Thing's hang out to the back rooms and I. I don't know exactly what they're doing to get back there. But looking on social media it almost looks like that they are puffing up their importance with a lot of pictures and then all of a sudden they kind of get to be important That's interesting what. What do you mean by backrooms described it because at one point apartments talking about a private dinner with the president which I think happens there in the hotel room? What is what's the sort of distinction between the the the lobby bar in the backrooms actual important power players are so there's really two tiers if you go out in the lobby? That's where you're gonNA find you not even Fox News host but like Fox News guests are going to be hanging out there. People who really wanted to be seen in need to be seen to kind of project some sort of importance but they may not actually be that important example. Corey Lewandowski is somebody. You'll see it there rudy. Giuliani was the exception to that. But it's the back rooms. It's the trump townhouse which is where if died with dined with the president. And it's the Franklin study in the Lincoln Library where they had those private events. And that's where you'll see the mingling with special interest groups that have flown in lobbyists. Anybody can see them coming back and forth though to the main entrance which is where some of these other interactions come from and is that final question here like do like my understanding from the reporting we haven't from the disclosures that special interest groups if you're trying to get a rag changed if you're trying to get a piece of legislation like they we know that's the place to go and that's where those back room meetings happen. It can't hurt. There's absolutely no downside to booking the trump hotel now. I spoke to lobbyist obvious really early on when it was clear that hotel was going to stick around. said they're going to go there to try to influence them in response was of course they are. Why wouldn't they yeah? Search efforts in who's been covering this beaten his newsletter. Thanks a

"Know. It's possible but I haven't gone through all my phone records. I don't really recall that name. What what did you discuss with parts? Well I don't even know because I don't I've never met par us. Somebody concocted this story. Try to get this Parnasse guy who I've never met and so you know it's a great question because many people WanNa know including myself. It seems very very unlikely that I would be taking calls from random people. I got a call from from a number. That was his wife in a working phone conversation with him. We we have not been able to confirm that yet. Adam Schiff is the guy working with us. Yeah Adam Schiff is not working with a left Parnasse okay The only person that's our last part pretending to not know his name is just hilarious. I don't even know how to use a phone. Do you believe me a yet. Good so I want to include a you know.

Barloon of Steve Carell. Well Geez I. By the way I saw comment that I have to read this from a collective miscellaneous and he says Parnasse must be the cool stylish version of PARNIS. This just like hell was the cool. Stylish version of Urkel on family matters all right. Well we leave you on that high note When we come back from the break we'll talk about other news Including Back God. I really want to move on to other things. But there's one more story related to the interviews and it has to do with a congressional candidates threatening the life of a Ukrainian ambassador. We'll be right back to. It is all about challenging and disrupting the status quo and so is aspiration. Aspiration is not invest your money to the fossil fuel businesses that harm our planet just pipelines and oil drilling.

"There's been a lot of news this week about Ukraine. One of the threads love Parnassus and associate of Rudy. Giuliani is speaking out this week. Among other claims mm sea says he pressed for investigations and Ukraine that would benefit president trump and Ukraine has announced an investigation into whether former US ambassador to Ukraine Mariya. Rejuvenate Mitch was being surveilled joining me now to break. All this down is Wall Street Journal reporter Shelby Holiday Shelby. We're hearing a lot more from one of the central figures. Here's here and that is left. He's an associate of Rudy Giuliani's and he's been making the media rounds this week telling his side of the story. What new information did we hear from him? Well well he's not only talking. He actually handed over documents to the House Intelligence Committee so some of what he is saying is corroborated by text messages and letters and evidence that he's providing but what he is doing is he is out there. Essentially playing into Democrats hands corroborating. What Democrats have accused? The president of in that is coercing the Ukrainian government into announcing an investigation into Joe Biden president trump's democratic rival. So he's out there saying publicly. The president is a liar that president trump knew exactly what was going on with with respect to his actions and Rudy Giuliani's actions. He has been saying that he's with Rudy. Giuliani four or five days out of the week and he would overhear your phone conversations between Giuliani and president trump and some of that even backed up by photos at the Wall Street Journal has published because we do know that Rudy Giuliani and love. Parnis spent quite a bit of time together and we're with each other very important events throughout the past year. What he's also doing is accusing other administration officials of being in the loop so far? Some of those claims have not been corroborated. But he's implicating for example Vice President Mike Pence Attorney General William Bar the to have pushed back on what parnes is saying and remember Parnassus. Credibility is being called into question. Because he's somebody who is indicted in the southern district of New York and he's also accused of lying to authorities with respect to that matter. Shelby what are we hearing from. The trump administration in response to what Arneses saying well from. I'm back in the fall when was arrested president. Trump said he didn't even know love Parnasse he said. I don't know these men. I don't know what they're doing. So the White House not surprisingly Singley is still maintaining their distance and saying left. Parnasse isn't credible. What he's saying isn't true but Kellyanne conway was pressed pretty hard on on Fox News show about whether or not furnaces lying and she didn't give a flat out no? Let's pick up another piece of this. Ukraine has said it's now looking into whether the former US ambassador to Ukraine. Marie Ivanovich was under surveillance prior to being removed from her job. Just reminder ianovich testified during the house impeachment inquiry that she was the target of a smear your campaign shelby. What can you tell us about Ukraine's investigation here so in the documents love partners handed over to Congress where these text messages Many people said there are very troubling. They come from Robert Hide. He's a Republican congressional candidate. Who was texting in touch with Parnassus and some of the things? He was saying alluded to the fact. There was this surveillance team in Ukraine following and tracking Yvonna Vich movements and his text messages said things like if you want her out they need to make contact with security he forces. Obviously this raised a lot of eyebrows. Not only did Ukraine launch an investigation but also the FBI visited hides home and office. According to a person familiar with the matter. Now love parts is saying that he never took seriously he didn't really engage with him With respect to these messages but clearly authorities are taking it seriously early in the fact that they're looking at home looking at his office and launching an investigation and Ukraine. So a couple of threads here to full on and as the impeachment trial begins in the Senate. How might these various threats that we've just discussed play into the trial? The trial is starting to take shape and senators will be voting on whether or not they should hear witnesses. So we're we're not sure whether or not this would be a witness. Some people say he's not credible he shouldn't be up there but now other Democrats are saying together with the documents he handed over. We should hear from him. Another thing furnace has been saying. That's very interesting is that John. Bolton has a lot to say. The Ambassador Bolton was the national security adviser and he he has said he's willing to testify. Democrats want him to testify. It's just a matter of whether or not a few Republicans will vote to hear from him. But I think love Arneses recent statements. I will actually bolster the case that John John Bolton's should be a witness and we have new documents. We're not sure if the Senate will take those into consideration. But there's a lot of the air and there's a lot they have to decide Wall Street Journal reporter Shelby Holiday joining me here in our studio.

"And I've really tried to understand 'cause you know in late in the game for show prep really trying to understand. Exactly what is it issue. Apparently there's a new character This Floyd Floyd guy get worked for For Giuliani well. The No. That's the live. Parnasse guy key works for Julian. Lloyd is well. It's important because floyd is one of these guys who shows up at a lot of trump events dance much like many people because he donates a lot of money. I think he's donated fifty five thousand dollars to the America first Super Pac Jack. which is where this live? Parnasse guy he donated three hundred fifty thousand but he did it through a Shell company which is why he's indicted and rightfully so because you can't have foreign money coming in don't even though we know how it's done usually credit cards in everyone's doing it the right way so parnasse. Parnasse has a WHATSAPP messages. That have been released. I'm not quite sure if they went through how they have been released. Or if it's part of the grand jury I don't know what it is but Rachel Maddow hasn't and there. It's very clear that he's texting with this. Floyd character and the floyd character is saying stuff like okay man yeah. Well we've got the ambassador in our purview. We see what he's doing. We've got her under civilians okay. She's now on her phone. She's turned off her computer so she and her house. She's not online this. This kind of message is going back and forth. This was tied back to part of the transcript if I understand it correctly from the call with the trump and the The president of Ukraine. Where says I'm paraphrasing? Well she's going to go also a lot of trouble herself referring to the ambassador And that was in conspiratorial circles. Goals Taken as Oh my God. He was talking about taking a hit out on her. Then there's this floyd guy who surveilling her and knows apparently went her when her phone is on or winter computers on. They were trying to take her out. They were trying to killer and if you remember she was called back to the United States because they were there was a fear for her security purity so now all of a sudden we have escalated. this this corruption by trump as alleged into a hit job by trump and so and then the guy who's under indictment by four election campaign contribution Shen fraud key all of a sudden decides. Well I'm going to be a good guy I'm GonNa go talk to Rachel maddow about everything and I had to get because she published everything anything this morning Or maybe late last night online and this floyd character is a guy that apparently the trump hotel and this makes total percents in DC. It's kind of like the the the bar from Star Wars is a whole bunch of unsavory characters characters. Everyone's hanging around in the bar in the lobby and you know. DC is very much like this. Anyway it's no no different from Hollywood people hanging out at the Four Seasons Hotel Bar you are And the Oh as Bobby Nero over there you know and so you can talk about you. Might you might bump into might say this is where most of the business is done on. It's where all the lobbyists are and of course. The trump hotel in DC has got to be an unbelievable seething pit of Republicans and hangers on mainly. That's that's that's the that's the thing. So this floyd guy you know. He's he's got money he's handing it out so you get invited to stuff when he's talking to people and apparently U. T. now had the through his contacts and Ukraine had the ambassador under surveillance and he's texting back and forth with left Parnasse. And here's Rachel's interview with him specifically talking about this frightening individual what. Why did those exchanges happen? What was he trying to tell you? I don't believe it's true. Yeah I think he was either drunk or he's trying to make himself bigger than it was so I didn't take it seriously and I was trying to see I didn't even response and most of the time time and if I did it was like something like Lowell or okay or great or you know something like that just to because I wouldn't respond for a long time and then I didn't want him to get rowdy the if I saw them next time and say well. Why didn't you type response? I would just amuse him until eventually as you can see. I cut him off but the texts where he was supposedly reporting on the whereabouts of the ambassador that are went on for a week. I mean it wasn't like one drunk night correspondent for seven days couldn't have been drunk the whole time the whole time he wakes up open He starts at six. I mean I've never seen this by. The way is not what Rachel wanted to hear. She did not want to hear the guys at total lunatic. He's drunk at six in the morning until late at night but it will continue drunk so you thought that this was him making it up. You didn't believe he actually had the ambassador under surveillance absolutely. I asked Mr Parnell several times over the course of our interview if those text messages from Robert Hyde indicated a real threat to ambassador. You'RE GONNA Vich. I asked him about it as many different angles. I could come up with. I was insistent and asking. He was adamant response. This is Rachel covering for herself. Because what's really bad with. What she doesn't want is twitter? Exploding and saying you didn't ask hard enough. You didn't push gosh. You didn't look no further questions. You Cook something like that. It was totally her covering her ass and honestly down of course of sad. It's sad that she did that. She should have just not aired it all very good at what she does and this was not in the studio. This was At I think the guys lawyer's office she was a little bit out of her element. But that's how important the story was to her that she would. Because I can't believe I thought we're GONNA kill her. We're going to kill her but under surveillance now the guys just drunk lunatic all. Let's see that again. Money differed word to perturb Mr Parnell several times times over the course of our interview if those text messages from Robert Hyde indicated a real threat to ambassador Yvonna Vich I asked him about otherwise at Floyd. But it's hide so. I made a mistake a bit as many different angles I could come up with. I was insistent in asking. He was adamant in his response. So it's clear that you didn't take take Mr Hyde seriously in terms of the factual claims that he was making. But are you clear on whether or not there was ever an actual physical threat or a threat of personal intimidation against ambassador. Von which over for my side or anybody. I know you didn't worry that she was actually in physical danger number. Because because you didn't believe Mr Hyde believe this okay. So that was kind of a bummer. But the guy did say something which I think rings true through and is very plausible and so after certain instances trump was supposed to mean president. Trump was supposed to meet Alinsky in Poland himself but then He used the excuse of the hurricane. But it wasn't because of the hurricane that was because he was angry. That's alinsky style. Didn't make any attempt or effort to make the announcement before he was going to meet him and he was. That was an excuse. And that wasn't the real reason because I spoke to talk to me too. I mean we spoke about this every day. I I mean everything that was going on was discussed to Victoria Rudy. I mean the team President President trump is supposed to go he decides not to Vice President. Pence administered STA and basically he was supposed to go there and get it straight out. That was supposed to make another announcement and that didn't happen. And and that's on both secretary. Voting went over there. I think he has a lot to say. I'm not GonNa talk on his by think he's a key witness to his conversation with Alinsky when he came back and why he left or got fired. However you want to look at that? Let me make sure I understand what you're saying. When Vice President Pence went over there on September first and president trump said you believe you have reason to believe the vice president pence was tasked at that meeting with getting being presidents Alinsky to announce investigations of Joe Biden specifically? and to tell him that they wouldn't get their eight until they. I don't know exactly what he was the it was all its. It's obviously like I said the aid is off was something that I think the president decided to do. What's it called but it was? I think think of reaction to that. There was no announcement being made after so many times in so many promises still holding the was the president sort of innovation to to to add to the leverage. The pressure that people like you are the vice president and Mr Giuliani. Everybody involved in this effort was putting on the Ukrainian government so Rachel leading the witness at the end but the first part I that rings true to me I think it was Pence's job to go and get an announcement. I don't think he messed it up. And for that reason alone. Maybe he will not be on the ticket. I'm predicting right now. He will resign someone else's going to be on A on the vice presidential ticket for for trump. I think I think he screwed up royally there especially because it's now coming out well after those clips I should re read it right the ban on Rachel maddow clips unexciting pouring. Yeah but this and we do have a place to take a look at that one issue this guy has this guy ever talk to the president know as the guy ever met the president doubtful foil. Two guys have Rudy Giuliani. Fix Her and works for Giuliani This seems like it could be just all lot of thin air air to me. I am not convinced about any of it. There's there's no not not a bag man. No I think he is a bag man. I think he's the perfect bag man because he doesn't doesn't look or act like one I think he is a bag man and I think he screwed this up and and write it down in the book. He won't be on the ticket. He will not be on the ticket. You have the book or you're writing down the book you got a book read book. Is it in the book..

He's drunk at six in the morning until late at night but it will continue drunk so you thought that this was him making it up. You didn't believe he actually had the ambassador under surveillance absolutely. I asked Mr Parnell several times over the course of our interview if those text messages from Robert Hyde indicated a real threat to ambassador. You'RE GONNA Vich. I asked him about it as many different angles. I could come up with. I was insistent and asking. He was adamant response. This is Rachel covering for herself. Because what's really bad with. What she doesn't want is twitter? Exploding and saying you didn't ask hard enough. You didn't push wash questions. You Cook something like that. It was totally her covering her ass and honestly down of course of sad. It's sad that she did that. She should have just not aired it all very good at what she does and this was not in the studio. This was At I think the guys lawyer's office she was a little bit out of her element. But that's how important the story was to her that she would. Because I can't believe I thought we're GONNA kill her. We're going to kill her but under surveillance now the guys just drunk lunatic all. Let's see that again. Money differed words turn Mr Parnell several times times over the course of our interview if those text messages from Robert Hyde indicated a real threat to ambassador Yvonna Vich I asked him about otherwise at Floyd. But it's hide so. I made a mistake but as many different angles I could come up with. I was insistent in asking. He was adamant in his response. So it's clear that you didn't take take Mr Hyde seriously in terms of the factual claims that he was making. But are you clear on whether or not there was ever an actual physical threat or a threat of personal intimidation against ambassador. Von which over for my side or anybody. I know you didn't worry that she was actually in physical danger number. Because because you didn't believe Mr Hyde believe this okay. So that was kind of a bummer. But the guy did say something which I think rings true true and it's very plausible and so after certain instances trump were supposed to mean president. Trump was supposed to meet Alinsky in Poland himself but then He used the excuse of the hurricane. But it wasn't because of the hurricane that was because he was angry. That's alinsky style. Didn't make any attempt or effort to make the announcement before he was going to meet him and he was. That was an excuse. And that wasn't the real reason because I spoke to talk to me too. I mean we spoke about this every day. I I mean everything that was going on was discussed to Victoria Rudy. I mean the team President President trump is supposed to go he decides not to Vice President. Pence administered STA and basically he was supposed to go there and get it straight out. That was supposed to make another announcement and that didn't happen. And and that's on both secretary. Voting went over there. I think he has a lot to say. I'm not GonNa talk on his by think he's a key witness to his conversation with Alinsky when he came back and why he left or got fired over. You WanNa look at that. Let me make sure I understand what you're saying. When Vice President Pence went over there on September first and president trump said you believe you have reason to believe the vice president pence was tasked at that meeting with getting being presidents Alinsky to announce investigations of Joe Biden specifically? and to tell him that they wouldn't get their eight until they. I don't know exactly what he was. The it was all its. It's obviously the like. I said the aid is off was something that I think the president decided to do. What's it called but it was? I think think of reaction to that. There was no announcement being made after so many times in so many promises still holding the was the president sort of innovation to to to add to the leverage. The pressure that people like you are the vice president and Mr Giuliani. Everybody involved in this effort was putting on the Ukrainian government so Rachel leading the witness at the end but the first part I that rings true to me I think it was Pence's job to go and get an announcement I don't I think he messed it up and for that reason alone maybe he will not be on the ticket. I'm predicting right now. He will resign someone else's going to be on A on the vice presidential ticket for for trump. I think I think he screwed up royally there especially because it's now coming out well after those clips I should re read it right the ban on Rachel maddow clips unexciting pouring. Yeah but this and we do have a place to take a look at that one issue this guy has this guy ever talk to the president know as the guy ever met the president doubtful foil. Two guys have Rudy Giuliani. Fix Her and works for Giuliani This seems like it could be just all lot of thin air. I am not convinced about any of it. There's there's no not not a bag man. No I think he is a bag man. I think he's the perfect bag man because he doesn't doesn't look or act like one I think he is a bag man and I think he screwed this up and and write it down in the book. He won't be on the ticket. He will not be on the ticket. You have the book or you're writing down the book you got a book read book. Is it in the book..

"And I've really tried to understand 'cause you know in late in the game for show prep really trying to understand. Exactly what is it issue. Apparently there's a new character This Floyd Floyd guy get worked for for Giuliani. Well the no. That's the live Parnasse guy key works for Julian. Lloyd is well. It's important because floyd is one of these guys who shows up at a lot of trump events dance much like many people because he donates a lot of money. I think he's donated fifty five thousand dollars to the America first SUPERPAC Jack which is where this live. Parnasse guy he donated three hundred fifty thousand but he did it through a Shell company which is why he's indicted and rightfully so because you can't have foreign money coming in don't even though we know how it's done usually credit cards in everyone's doing it the right way so parnasse. Parnasse has a WHATSAPP messages. That have been released. I'm not quite sure if they went through how they have been released. Or if it's part of a grand jury and I don't know what it is but Rachel Maddow hasn't and there. It's very clear that he's texting with this. Floyd character and the floyd character is saying stuff like okay man yeah. Well we've got the ambassador in our purview. We see what she's doing. We've got her under civilians okay. She's now on her phone. She's turned off her computer so she and her house. She's not online this. This kind of message is going back and forth. This was tied back to part of the transcript if I understand it correctly from the call with the trump and the The president of Ukraine where trump says. I'm paraphrasing. Well she's going to go also a lot of trouble herself referring to the ambassador And that was in conspiratorial circles. Goals Taken as Oh my God. He was talking about taking a hit out on her. Then there's this floyd guy who surveilling her and knows apparently went her when her phone is on or winter computers on. They were trying to take her out. They were trying to killer and if you remember she was called back to the United States because they were there was a fear for her security purity so now all of a sudden we have escalated. this this corruption by trump as alleged into a hit job by trump and so and then the guy who's under indictment by four election campaign contribution Shen fraud key all of a sudden decides. Well I'm going to be a good guy I'm GonNa go talk to Rachel maddow about everything and I had to get because she published everything anything this morning Or maybe late last night online and this floyd character is a guy that apparently the trump hotel and this makes total percents in DC. It's kind of like the the the bar from Star Wars is a whole bunch of unsavory characters characters. Everyone's hanging around in the bar in the lobby and you know. DC is very much like this. Anyway it's no no different from Hollywood people hanging out at the Four Seasons Hotel Bar you are And the Oh as bobby near over there you know and so you can talk about you. Might you might bump into might say this is where most of the business is done on. It's where all the lobbyists are and of course. The trump hotel in DC has got to be an unbelievable seething pit of Republicans and hangers on mainly. That's that's that's the that's the thing. So this floyd guy you know. He's he's got money he's handing it out so you get invited to stuff when he's talking to people and apparently U. T. now had the through his contacts and Ukraine had the ambassador under surveillance and he's texting back and forth with left Parnasse. And here's Rachel's interview with him specifically talking about this frightening individual what. Why did those exchanges happen? What was he trying to tell you? I don't believe it's true. Yeah I think he was either drunk or he's trying to make himself bigger than it was so I didn't take it seriously and I was trying to see I didn't even response and most of the time time and if I did it was like something like Lowell or okay or great or you know something like that just to because I wouldn't respond for a long time and then I didn't want him to get rowdy the if I saw them next time and say well. Why didn't you type response? I would just amuse him until eventually as you can see. I cut him off but the texts where he was supposedly reporting on the whereabouts of the ambassador that are went on for a week. I mean it wasn't like one drunk night correspondent for seven days couldn't have been drunk the whole time the whole time he wakes up open He starts at six. I mean I've never seen this by.

I'm not GonNa talk on his by think he's a key witness to his conversation with Alinsky when he came back and why he left or got fired over. You WanNa look at that. Let me make sure I understand what you're saying. When Vice President Pence went over there on September first and president trump said you believe you have reason to believe the vice president pence was tasked at that meeting with getting being presidents Alinsky to announce investigations of Joe Biden specifically? and to tell him that they wouldn't get their eight until they. I don't know exactly what he was. The it was all its. It's obviously the like. I said the aid is off was something that I think the president decided to do. What's it called but it was? I think think of reaction to that. There was no announcement being made after so many times in so many promises still holding the was the president sort of innovation to to to add to the leverage. The pressure that people like you are the vice president and Mr Giuliani. Everybody involved in this effort was putting on the Ukrainian government so Rachel leading the witness at the end but the first part I that rings true to me I think it was Pence's job to go and get an announcement. I don't think he messed it up. And for that reason alone. Maybe he will not be on the ticket. I'm predicting right now. He will resign someone else's going to be on A on the vice presidential ticket for for trump. I think I think he screwed up royally there especially because it's now coming out well after those clips I should re read it right the ban on Rachel maddow clips unexciting pouring. Yeah but this and we do have a place to take a look at that one issue this guy has this guy ever talk to the president know as the guy ever met the president. Doubtful foil to guys have Rudy Giuliani. Fix Her and works for. Giuliani This seems like it could be just all lot of thin air air to me. I am not convinced about any of it. There's there's no not not a bag man. No I think he is a bag man. I think he's the perfect bag man because he doesn't doesn't look or act like one I think he is a bag man and I think he screwed this up and and write it down in the book. He won't be on the ticket. He will not be on the ticket. You have the book or you're writing down the book you got a book read book. Is it in the book..

"And I've really tried to understand 'cause you know in late in the game for show prep really trying to understand. Exactly what is it issue. Apparently there's a new character This Floyd Floyd guy get worked for For Giuliani well. The No. That's the live. Parnasse guy key works for Julian. Lloyd is well. It's important because floyd is one of these guys who shows up at a lot of trump events dance much like many people because he donates a lot of money. I think he's donated fifty five thousand dollars to the America first Super Pac Jack. which is where this live? Parnasse guy he donated three hundred fifty thousand but he did it through a Shell company which is why he's indicted and rightfully so because you can't have foreign money coming in don't even though we know how it's done usually credit cards in everyone's doing it the right way so parnasse. Parnasse has a WHATSAPP messages. That have been released. I'm not quite sure if they went through how they have been released. Or if it's part of the grand jury I don't know what it is but Rachel Maddow hasn't and there. It's very clear that he's texting with this. Floyd character and the floyd character is saying stuff like okay man yeah. Well we've got the ambassador in our purview. We see what he's doing. We've got her under civilians okay. She's now on her phone. She's turned off her computer so she and her house. She's not online this. This kind of message is going back and forth. This was tied back to part of the transcript if I understand it correctly from the call with the trump and the The president of Ukraine. Where says I'm paraphrasing? Well she's going to go also a lot of trouble herself referring to the ambassador And that was in conspiratorial circles. Goals Taken as Oh my God. He was talking about taking a hit out on her. Then there's this floyd guy who surveilling her and knows apparently went her when her phone is on or winter computers on. They were trying to take her out. They were trying to killer and if you remember she was called back to the United States because they were there was a fear for her security purity so now all of a sudden we have escalated. this this corruption by trump as alleged into a hit job by trump and so and then the guy who's under indictment by four election campaign contribution Shen fraud key all of a sudden decides. Well I'm going to be a good guy I'm GonNa go talk to Rachel maddow about everything and I had to get because she published everything anything this morning Or maybe late last night online and this floyd character is a guy that apparently the trump hotel and this makes total percents in DC. It's kind of like the the the bar from Star Wars is a whole bunch of unsavory characters characters. Everyone's hanging around in the bar in the lobby and you know. DC is very much like this. Anyway it's no no different from Hollywood people hanging out at the Four Seasons Hotel Bar you are And the Oh as Bobby Nero over there you know and so you can talk about you. Might you might bump into might say this is where most of the business is done on. It's where all the lobbyists are and of course. The trump hotel in DC has got to be an unbelievable seething pit of Republicans and hangers on mainly. That's that's that's the that's the thing. So this floyd guy you know. He's he's got money he's handing it out so you get invited to stuff when he's talking to people and apparently U. T. now had the through his contacts and Ukraine had the ambassador under surveillance and he's texting back and forth with left Parnasse. And here's Rachel's interview with him specifically talking about this frightening individual what. Why did those exchanges happen? What was he trying to tell you? I don't believe it's true. Yeah I think he was either drunk or he's trying to make himself bigger than it was so I didn't take it seriously and I was trying to see I didn't even response and most of the time time and if I did it was like something like Lowell or okay or great or you know something like that just to because I wouldn't respond for a long time and then I didn't want him to get rowdy the if I saw them next time and say well. Why didn't you type response? I would just amuse him until eventually as you can see. I cut him off but the texts where he was supposedly reporting on the whereabouts of the ambassador that are went on for a week. I mean it wasn't like one drunk night correspondent for seven days couldn't have been drunk the whole time the whole time he wakes up open He starts at six. I mean I've never seen this by. The way is not what Rachel wanted to hear. She did not want to hear the guys at total lunatic. He's drunk at six in the morning until late at night but it will continue drunk so you thought that this was him making it up. You didn't believe he actually had the ambassador under surveillance absolutely. I asked Mr Parnell several times over the course of our interview if those text messages from Robert Hyde indicated a real threat to ambassador. You'RE GONNA Vich. I asked him about it as many different angles. I could come up with. I was insistent and asking. He was adamant response. This is Rachel covering for herself. Because what's really bad with. What she doesn't want is twitter? Exploding and saying you didn't ask hard enough. You didn't push gosh. You didn't look no further questions. You Cook something like that. It was totally her covering her ass and honestly down of course of sad. It's sad that she did that. She should have just not aired it all very good at what she does and this was not in the studio. This was At I think the guys lawyer's office she was a little bit out of her element. But that's how important the story was to her that she would. Because I can't believe I thought we're GONNA kill her. We're going to kill her but under surveillance now the guys just drunk lunatic all. Let's see that again. Money differed word to perturb Mr Parnell several times times over the course of our interview if those text messages from Robert Hyde indicated a real threat to ambassador Yvonna Vich I asked him about otherwise at Floyd. But it's hide so. I made a mistake a bit as many different angles I could come up with. I was insistent in asking. He was adamant in his response. So it's clear that you didn't take take Mr Hyde seriously in terms of the factual claims that he was making. But are you clear on whether or not there was ever an actual physical threat or a threat of personal intimidation against ambassador. Von which over for my side or anybody. I know you didn't worry that she was actually in physical danger number. Because because you didn't believe Mr Hyde believe this okay. So that was kind of a bummer. But the guy did say something which I think rings true through and is very plausible and so after certain instances trump was supposed to mean president. Trump was supposed to meet Alinsky in Poland himself but then He used the excuse of the hurricane. But it wasn't because of the hurricane that was because he was angry. That's alinsky style. Didn't make any attempt or effort to make the announcement before he was going to meet him and he was. That was an excuse. And that wasn't the real reason because I spoke to talk to me too. I mean we spoke about this every day. I I mean everything that was going on was discussed to Victoria Rudy. I mean the team President President trump is supposed to go he decides not to Vice President. Pence administered STA and basically he was supposed to go there and get it straight out. That was supposed to make another announcement and that didn't happen. And and that's on both secretary. Voting went over there. I think he has a lot to say. I'm not GonNa talk on his by think he's a key witness to his conversation with Alinsky when he came back and why he left or got fired. However you want to look at that? Let me make sure I understand what you're saying. When Vice President Pence went over there on September first and president trump said you believe you have reason to believe the vice president pence was tasked at that meeting with getting being presidents Alinsky to announce investigations of Joe Biden specifically? and to tell him that they wouldn't get their eight until they.

Yeah but this and we do have a place to take a look at that one issue this guy has this guy ever talk to the president know as the guy ever met the president doubtful foil. Two guys have Rudy Giuliani. Fix Her and works for Giuliani This seems like it could be just all lot of thin air air to me. I am not convinced about any of it. There's there's no not not a bag man. No I think he is a bag man. I think he's the perfect bag man because he doesn't doesn't look or act like one I think he is a bag man and I think he screwed this up and and write it down in the book.

It's important because floyd is one of these guys who shows up at a lot of trump events dance much like many people because he donates a lot of money. I think he's donated fifty five thousand dollars to the America first Super Pac Jack. which is where this live? Parnasse guy he donated three hundred fifty thousand but he did it through a Shell company which is why he's indicted and rightfully so because you can't have foreign money coming in don't even though we know how it's done usually credit cards in everyone's doing it the right way. So parnasse has a WHATSAPP messages that have been released. I'm not quite sure if they went through how they have been released. Or if it's part of the grand jury I don't know what it is but Rachel Maddow hasn't and there. It's very clear that he's texting with this. Floyd character and the floyd character is saying stuff like okay man yeah. Well we've got the ambassador in our purview. We see what she's doing. We've got her under civilians okay. She's now on her phone. She's turned off her computer so she and her house. She's not online this. This kind of message is going back and forth. This was tied back to part of the transcript if I understand it correctly from the call with the trump and the The president of Ukraine where trump says. I'm paraphrasing. Well she's going to go also a lot of trouble herself referring to the ambassador And that was in conspiratorial circles. Goals Taken as Oh my God. He was talking about taking a hit out on her. Then there's this floyd guy who surveilling her and knows apparently went her when her phone is on or winter computers on. They were trying to take her out. They were trying to killer and if you remember she was called back to the United States because they were there was a fear for her security purity so now all of a sudden we have escalated. this this corruption by trump as alleged into a hit job by trump and so and then the guy who's under indictment by four election campaign contribution Shen fraud key all of a sudden decides. Well I'm going to be a good guy I'm GonNa go talk to Rachel maddow about everything and I had to get because she published everything anything this morning Or maybe late last night online and this floyd character is a guy that apparently the trump hotel and this makes total percents in DC. It's kind of like the the the bar from Star Wars is a whole bunch of unsavory characters characters. Everyone's hanging around in the bar in the lobby and you know. DC is very much like this. Anyway it's no no different from Hollywood people hanging out at the Four Seasons Hotel Bar you are And the Oh as bobby near over there you know and so you can talk about you. Might you might bump into might say this is where most of the business is done on. It's where all the lobbyists are and of course. The trump hotel in DC has got to be an unbelievable seething pit of Republicans and hangers on mainly. That's that's that's the that's the thing. So this floyd guy you know. He's he's got money he's handing it out so you get invited to stuff when he's talking to people and apparently U. T. now had the through his contacts and Ukraine had the ambassador under surveillance and he's texting back and forth with left Parnasse. And here's Rachel's interview with him specifically talking about this frightening individual what. Why did those exchanges happen? What was he trying to tell you? I don't believe it's true. Yeah I think he was either drunk or he's trying to make himself bigger than it was so I didn't take it seriously and I was trying to see I didn't even response and most of the time time and if I did it was like something like Lowell or okay or great or you know something like that just to because I wouldn't respond for a long time and then I didn't want him to get rowdy the if I saw them next time and say well. Why didn't you type response? I would just amuse him until eventually as you can see. I cut him off but the texts where he was supposedly reporting on the whereabouts of the ambassador that are went on for a week. I mean it wasn't like one drunk night correspondent for seven days couldn't have been drunk the whole time the whole time he wakes up open He starts at six. I mean I've never seen this by. The way is not what Rachel wanted to hear. She did not want to hear the guys at total lunatic. He's drunk at six in the morning until late at night but it will continue drunk so you thought that this was him making it up. You didn't believe he actually had the ambassador under surveillance absolutely. I asked Mr Parnell several times over the course of our interview if those text messages from Robert Hyde indicated a real threat to ambassador. You'RE GONNA Vich. I asked him about it as many different angles. I could come up with. I was insistent and asking. He was adamant response. This is Rachel covering for herself. Because what's really bad with. What she doesn't want is twitter? Exploding and saying you didn't ask hard enough. You didn't push wash questions. You Cook something like that. It was totally her covering her ass and honestly down of course of sad. It's sad that she did that. She should have just not aired it all very good at what she does and this was not in the studio. This was At I think the guys lawyer's office she was a little bit out of her element. But that's how important the story was to her that she would. Because I can't believe I thought we're GONNA kill her. We're going to kill her but under surveillance now the guys just drunk lunatic all. Let's see that again. Money differed words turn Mr Parnell several times times over the course of our interview if those text messages from Robert Hyde indicated a real threat to ambassador Yvonna Vich I asked him about otherwise at Floyd. But it's hide so. I made a mistake but as many different angles I could come up with. I was insistent in asking. He was adamant in his response. So it's clear that you didn't take take Mr Hyde seriously in terms of the factual claims that he was making. But are you clear on whether or not there was ever an actual physical threat or a threat of personal intimidation against ambassador. Von which over for my side or anybody. I know you didn't worry that she was actually in physical danger number. Because because you didn't believe Mr Hyde believe this okay. So that was kind of a bummer. But the guy did say something which I think rings true true and it's very plausible and so after certain instances trump were supposed to mean president. Trump was supposed to meet Alinsky in Poland himself but then He used the excuse of the hurricane. But it wasn't because of the hurricane that was because he was angry. That's alinsky style. Didn't make any attempt or effort to make the announcement before he was going to meet him and he was. That was an excuse. And that wasn't the real reason because I spoke to talk to me too. I mean we spoke about this every day. I I mean everything that was going on was discussed to Victoria Rudy. I mean the team President President trump is supposed to go he decides not to Vice President. Pence administered STA and basically he was supposed to go there and get it straight out. That was supposed to make another announcement and that didn't happen. And and that's on both secretary. Voting went over there. I think he has a lot to say. I'm not GonNa talk on his by think he's a key witness to his conversation with Alinsky when he came back and why he left or got fired over. You WanNa look at that. Let me make sure I understand what you're saying. When Vice President Pence went over there on September first and president trump said you believe you have reason to believe the vice president pence was tasked at that meeting with getting being presidents Alinsky to announce investigations of Joe Biden specifically? and to tell him that they wouldn't get their eight until they. I don't know exactly what he was. The it was all its. It's obviously the like. I said the aid is off was something that I think the president decided to do. What's it called but it was? I think think of reaction to that. There was no announcement being made after so many times in so many promises still holding the was the president sort of innovation to to to add to the leverage. The pressure that people like you are the vice president and Mr Giuliani. Everybody involved in this effort was putting on the Ukrainian government so Rachel leading the witness at the end but the first part I that rings true to me I think it was Pence's job to go and get an announcement I don't I think he messed it up and for that reason alone maybe he will not be on the ticket. I'm predicting right now. He will resign someone else's going to be on A on the vice presidential ticket for for trump. I think I think he screwed up royally there especially because it's now coming out well after those clips I should re read it right the ban on Rachel maddow clips unexciting pouring. Yeah but this and we do have a place to take a look at that one issue this guy has this guy ever talk to the president know as the guy ever met the president doubtful foil. Two guys have Rudy Giuliani. Fix Her and works for Giuliani This seems like it could be just all lot of thin air. I am not convinced about any of it. There's there's no not not a bag man. No I think he is a bag man. I think he's the perfect bag man because he doesn't doesn't look or act like one I think he is a bag man and I think he screwed this up and and write it down in the book. He won't be on the ticket. He will not be on the ticket. You have the book or you're writing down the book you got a book read book. Is it in the book..

Parnas presented to Ukrainians as speaking on Trump's behalf

"You're really at the time was the general. The first thing I did this to introduce myself and tell them I'm here on behalf of really Giuliani beyond the president of the United States. And I'd like to put you on speakerphone for you. Know to confirm which we did we put you on. The phone rudy relate to him basically that we were there on behalf of the president of the United States. And you were there to speak on president. Trump's behalf exhibited those exact words. Mr Parnasse says that when he was taking meetings to advance this scheme taking meetings with various government officials in Ukraine he says it was a regular occurrence. It was the way those meetings started. He would put rudy. Giuliani on phone on the speakerphone in the room and he would say explicitly. Mr Giuliani would say explicitly that as the president's personal attorney he could affirm that left Parnis. was there air at that meeting. In Ukraine to speak on behalf of the President of the United States Donald Trump in May of last year may twenty nineteen. Mr Giuliani started speaking with reporters about his plans to travel himself to Ukraine to try to enlist the Ukrainian government's assistance to help hoped his client president trump. Basically in his re-election effort he said he was going to Ukraine to try to get them to announce investigations into Vice President Biden because that would be very very helpful to his client in the resulting firestorm of criticism. Mr Giuliani's trip was called off in May when he called off the trip. Mr Giuliani Johny made public statements. Criticizing the new government of Ukraine saying that Ukraine's new president was surrounded by enemies of the United States and for Ukraine that it was a really big deal right Ukraine. A country at war with Russia is a country very much dependent on both the reality and the perception of their having strong support from the United States government. And so when Mr Giuliani as the president's personal attorneys started making public claims the new Ukrainian president was surrounded by enemies of the United States of America. That's why he wasn't going to Ukraine at that point. The Ukrainian government kind of freaked out that kind of criticism from the new administration for their new new president in Ukraine. And that's a potential death sentence for their country so at the time that happened left part was in Ukraine in Kiev. At the time all of that happened and he told me today that he was tasked by Rudy Giuliani in that moment to crank up the pressure on the government of Ukraine to make even more insistent and obvious is an even more onerous this threat and this demand that Ukraine must announce investigations into Joe Biden. Or else it. Did you meet with Ukrainian official name. Sergei Schaefer Circuit Schaefer is a very senior aide to presidents Alinsky. It has been reported as far as we understand from public reporting that you conveyed to Mr Schaffer. The exact quid pro bowl that you wanted Celeski Alinsky to announce investigations into Joe Biden or military aid would not be released to Ukraine. Is that accurate. It was a little bit more than that Aw Basically The message that that was supposed to die gave Sergei Schaefer was a very harsh message that was told to be to give it to him in a very harsh way. A not in a pleasant way to give it to harshly mayor Guiliani Rudy told me After a meeting the president the White House he called me. His message was wasn't just military. It was all eight. Basically the relationships would be sour. You would stop giving him any kind of aid that unless that there was an announcement made several several demands at that point a the most important one is the announcement of the bite. Ministration did you also convey convey to him that the US government would stop showing support for mistress Alinsky. They wouldn't attend the inauguration those that was the biggest thing. Actually that was the that was the main Wasn't because at that time you have to understand the way you create now is for presents alinsky winning on that platform being a young president and not really having any experience the number one end being at war with Russia at the time the number one thing for them was not even eight and I know it sounds crazy but it was more of a support for the president resident by having a White House. Visit by having a big inauguration by having all the dignitaries there that was the key and at that time There were already aware because of their Conversations with the I guess what the embassy that President Vice President Pence was supposed to come to the inauguration was already discussed and they were replanning and now they were just working on days. That would be good for him at our meeting. I was very very heated. Conversation from our part to him. Basically telling What needs to be done? I mean basically me and at the at the at in the conversation. I told him that if he doesn't the announcement it was the key at that time because of the nation the pence would not show up. Nobody would show up to his inauguration unless he announced an investigation into Joe Biden No. US officials Dell's particularly vice president. Mike Pence would not come to do so the day after that meeting that you had on the twelfth. Aw I believe it was the following day that in fact vice-president pence is a visit to the inauguration was cancelled after my phone. Call the conversation conversation that I laid out to. Mr Schaffer was basically what I was told to do. By Giuliani of the president. And then afterwards I relate back to them saying that he's going to get back to me later tonight and we're supposed to meet then around eight o'clock or nine o'clock at night. I texted back against saying any word. What's the situation and at that point Because because

Trump Denies Giuliani Acted on His Behalf in Ukraine: 'Rudy Has Other Clients'

"I WANNA play a clip of an interview with Donald Trump and his and his old buddy man who used have a cable show until he was fired because of so many accusations of sexual arrangement this is donald trump talking about rudy. Giuliani whose intimated he has insurance against the president and won't run the bus over him and this is what Donald Trump is now saying about him. Take a listen. So what was Rudy Giuliani. Doing in Ukraine on your behalf. Where you have to ask that to rudy but Rudy I? I don't even know I. I know he was going to go to Ukraine and I think he cancelled a trip But you know Rudy has other clients other than me. I'm one direct him to go there on your behalf. You didn't know but you have to understand. Rudy is a great corruption fighter. I mean there's so much that's fascinating about this betsy but the first thing that sticks Out To me is you'RE GONNA have to ask is literally what he said about. Michael Kohn back in April eighteen. When he was I asked about the animals? He said you're going to have to ask Michael and look where Michael ended up right did not have a happy ending for for Mr Cohen Trump. Telling people to talk to rudy kind of ironically also matches. What what he was telling? Some of his senior administration officials called him with questions about Ukraine. He said go talk to Rudy. The reality is rudy. Unquestionably was one of the trump himself. Senior on voice too key while this entire process was playing out and everybody knew it that Ukrainians new at the Americans knew trump trump nuit rudy. New at there was no mystery to this and remember part of the reason that there's such a robust conversation about whether or not to expand the number of witnesses. This is testifying before the impeachment inquiry is that we haven't actually heard from people who were really really in the weeds with Rudy himself. On the work he was doing for the president resident. Love Parnassus a person who would potentially be able to provide that testimony Andrea earmark. who was an aide to the president of Ukraine who met with Rudy shortly after after the trump as Alinsky phone call year? Mock told me on the record that led Parnasse was at the table when he and Rudy had a conversation that has now proven to the incredibly faithful Peres hasn't yet testified. So there's a lot of information out there that congressional Democrats still don't have a great point as for Rudy Swim. I mean debates. He's he's point he literally tells Linski on the phone call to talk to rudy. He tells them you talk to people. Will you borrow Rudy. He I mean he will try because he tries to do this. All this things things and just sort of like Ben Reality News will but there is just no question. He's directing people to get in contact with Rudy. No absolutely and look like as betsy was mentioning earlier about how India Open and how public this was and it wasn't actually a secret at best. It was an open secret. That Giuliani was acting on president. Trump's behalf unrest is he was telling reporters on the record for months in in a very loquacious manner in the months leading up to the scandal before the long before the impeachment inquiry was even lauch. And when when he would talk about it to reporters at various outlets including at the daily beast he would repeatedly say how he was. Keeping President. Trump abreast yes leafed on all of his progress progress so if president trump wants turn around now and talk about how oh he was doing his own thing well. There were numerous opportunities from to tell his lawyer to knock get the hell off if he actually wanted US win. Su- sang and Betsy Woodruff Swan. Thank you both your time

Giuliani associate Lev Parnas agrees to cooperate with House impeachment probe

"Day. One Thousand Nineteen eighteen of the trump administration and as the president takes his fight against impeachment as he did tonight to Lexington Kentucky Democrats feel they are gaining and building ending their case against him. Just tonight Lev Parnasse. One of those two Rudy Giuliani associates and the effort to have Ukraine help trump investigators. Rivals also has agreed to give documents and testimony to Congress Arnesen was picked up while apparently trying to flee. The country has already been indicted on campaign finance charges and and refuse to comply with investigators. Initially last month. He and the other Guy Ebor fruman were also involved in the effort to oust one time. US US ambassador to Ukraine Maria Villanova who trump recalled back in May and that brings a big move from the house. Democrats to the four today today this morning. They went public with the impeachment inquiry releasing the first transcripts from witnesses who Baha behind closed doors gave depositions. Opposition's remember these other depositions that were being taken in private the same proceedings the Republicans wanted to disrupt a week ago. Oh demanding transparency. Well we got some of that transparency today nearly five hundred pages of testimony from the former former ambassador and a top aide to the secretary of state. Mike pompeo former ambassador Michael McKinley. They are now no longer secret. House Intelligence Committee Committee Chair Adam. Schiff described the essence of what the witnesses said. The apparatus of the State Department itself was being used to seek political information for a political purpose by the President United States and others. It's actually gripping reading as our former ambassador. Yeah Oven ovatch test to find. She learned of plans to get rid of her from quote people in the Ukrainian in government. WHO said the former prosecutor general was in communication with Mayor Giuliani and they had plans and that they were they were going to? Do you know do things things including to me she added. They told me I was. I really needed to watch my back. She also testified that when she asked former trump trump donor turned. EU Ambassador. Gordon Sunlen for advice on how to handle the attacks against her from Giuliani and trump allies. He quote said you know you need to go bigger go home you need to. You know tweet out there that you support. The President says a former foreign service official eventually called her at one in the morning to warn her quote. There was a lot of concern for me that I needed to be on the next plane home to Washington. She said I don't know. But this is about your security. You need to come home immediately late today. The president was asked what he knew about former ambassador. Graf Center which was the target of a smear campaign by the transcript descript. The president of Ukraine was not a fan of hers. Either I mean he did not exactly say slowing things. I'm sure she's a very fine woman I I just don't know much about her. Sorry for the multiple pronunciations yet on that July. Twenty fifth phone call with Ukraine's president trump said about the John Bassett or quote the former ambassador from the United States. The woman was bad news today. Four witnesses subpoenaed by House Democrats kratz including John Eisenberg. He's the lawyer to whom several White House officials reported their concerns about that Ukraine phone call all skipped their closed-door depositions sessions didn't show up. NBC News has learned that most of the witnesses scheduled to testify.

House releases transcripts from key witnesses in Trump impeachment inquiry

"We are now starting to see the actual testimony from the depositions in the impeachment inquiry so far the transcripts and they are as damning as expected for the president and and his allies now Republicans wine for weeks and weeks of the fact that depositions were being held behind closed doors despite the fact that many of them were actually attending those very same hearing the president tried to get out ahead of the release of the word for word transcripts today by saying they would be faked and Republicans should release their own indicating indicating that he was clearly not happy with what was about to come out well today we got the first two transcripts from forward top State Department official Michael Mckinley and crucially former US ambassador bastard Ukraine Marie Ivanovich we already know a lot about what McKinley testified about including that he said he resigned his post in part because of quote the failure of the State Department urban to offer support to foreign service employees caught up impeachment inquiry McKinley who was senior advisor Secretary State Mike Pompeo also testified again under growth in this deposition that he told not pompeii about his concerns multiple times before he resigned which makes what pump said last month so much more interesting listen listen to the way the pompeo gives himself absolutely no wiggle room on this question Mike McKinley third me well for a year and a half I chose him my head people tell me he was a great foreign service officer in fact he served America wonderfully for thirty seven years he had in fact had the office that was just just behind mine had a door that he could walk in any time and say whatever he wanted you know from the time that embassador yvonna bitch departed Ukraine until the time that he came to tell me that he was departing harding I never heard him say a single thing about his concerns with respect to the decision you never ask not once not once George did ambassador McKinley say something it to me during that entire time period that's interesting so maybe set it outside that time period or maybe McKinley is lying or maybe pompeo's lying the story though that has has told these depositions of of someone who was in the way of the corrupt quid pro quo abuse of office the President Rudy Giuliani were running to try and squeeze Ukraine to manufacture a dirt the president's political rival particularly in that of the ousted US ambassador Devante vish Ukraine whose career was a casualty of that scheme she testified that she learned from and Ukrainian officials that Rudy Giuliani plan to target her Ivanovich was asked what she thought President trump meant when he said on the phone call with Ukrainian president that she was quote going wing to go through some things Ivanovich said I didn't know what it meant I was very concerned I still am. She testified that a concern senior Ukrainian official told Oldie quote told me I really needed to watch my back former ambassador also told Congress the same Ukrainian official wonder about quote to individuals from Florida Mr Parnasse and Mr Freeman who were working with Mayor Giuliani they were interested in having a different ambassador to the post because they wanted to have business dealings in Ukraine or additional additional business dealings I didn't understand that because nobody the embassy had ever met these two individuals now the president gets to appoint ambassadors and he gets to recall them but in the case of Ambassador Basser Uganda Bitch let's remember her position and removal are also at the center of a criminal case that's currently being brought by the US attorney in the Southern District of New York doc against two men who are associates the president's personal were John Juliani reportedly paid Guiliani at least half a million dollars who hung out Yankee Games among other places with with Rudy who got prime seats at a twenty thousand trump rally and who represented themselves to Congress in an official letter as members of the president's legal team and and let's remember that part of the charges against these two men love Parnasse and eager fruman is that they were giving donations to a member of Congress as part of this sprawling effort to get rid of ambassador of rich so that they could corruptly install from the associates to promote their business interests in Ukraine Ivanovich was standing being in the way of making Ukraine more corrupt on behalf of president trump and Rudy Giuliani and I should tell you we just learned tonight that one of these guys parnasse seems to be ready to cooperate with congressional investigators Reuters reports Parnasse is prepared to comply with requests for records and testimony from congressional impeachment investigators PARNASSUS lawyer has confirmed that that me see news joining me now from Warren What we learned today so he told me legal reporter for Buzzfeed News and Tasha Berkshire National Security correspondent political NS NBC contributor. Natasha let me start with you on the Parnasse news his old lawyer had been the president's old lawyer John Dowd who'd written a letter being like he's part of the team and he's not going to show up and do anything he's now jumped don't John Doubt and now he's GonNa cooperate is that what's happening. Yeah Chris I mean it certainly seems seems like Parnasse is angry he's angry that the president has said that he doesn't know who he is he feels like the president has completely mischaracterized their relationship and you have to be inclined to believe a bit because there are so many photos of them together over the last two or so years a political events at gallows at fundraisers Parnis and firmin were everywhere and they surrounded the president at many pivotal moments so what we're seeing now is they've opened the door to cooperation with the congressional committees that doesn't necessarily Sara Lee mean of course that it's going to happen because a lot of the documents at the Congressional committees want are in the hands of the FBI which of course rated partisan ferments belongings as part of their indictment it also is remains to be seen whether or not their lawyers are even going to his learned this case has even going to let him testify because he's in the middle of a criminal probe but this does indicate at least a shift for now in how he perceives the president and trump really hasn't learned this lesson that you know when these people are are under scrutiny and he continues to criticize them his former allies and says I don't know them well they usually have receipts Zoe what did we learn today in the Ivanovich Ivanovic testimony in terms of the nexus between this sort of strange plot that was hatched by nuts room in for variety of reasons perhaps APPs personal business reasons as well as Ingraham themselves the president and the president and Rudy Giuliani's attempt to squeeze Ukraine government for for dirt on their political what we saw was perspective from yet another witness in the impeachment inquiry sort of explaining how they learned that there was this other her channel between the White House and Ukraine that was unofficial not sanctioned involved a cohort of non-government officials in this case Rudy Rudy Giuliani left parnasse eager freeman who for months had been traveling around trying to set up connections and Ukraine in an effort to dig up dirt on Joe Biden trying to discredit the Mueller investigation but all while making entrees into very official circles in Ukraine to the dismay dismay of the career civil servants who you know whose job it was to establish those formal channels between the administration and these foreign government entities and what we heard what we saw in the transcript was the former ambassador Marie Ivanovich saying you know learning about this back channel and being perplexed and concerned -cerned by it but not really seeing away out and being told that if she wanted to keep her job she needed to ingratiate herself with the president and not make waves about this both the one in one point she testified she was told to tweet US support for the president. I mean what what's fascinating here and attach you had these sort of comparative means of of of conducting yourself Marie Ivanovich the lifelong foreign service officer who's there who's trying to like steer American policy and then the Parnassus Fruman and Giuliani's of the world old who are wheeling and dealing and taking meetings and doing God knows what God knows who's behest and those are the people president is listening to and who had the imprimature of the entire hire American state behind them exactly Chris and Marie Ivanovich testified that this wasn't something that the State Department could just ignore they felt really hamstrung owned by the fact that this dual foreign policy track was taking place and at one point she said the Ukrainians didn't know who to talk to didn't know whether we represented US policy whether they should be listening to Giuliani and Parnasse Freeman and the rug really felt like it was being pulled out from beneath us we have to remember also that this is a very sensitive moment what what has been a very sensitive moment in Ukraine for the last five years since the Russians invaded eastern Ukraine and at this moment there trying to negotiate peace in the east with the russian-backed separatists separatist so for the aid to be withheld at this sensitive time was extremely troubling to the Crohn's and on top of that they didn't even know who the interlocutors were are there was supposed to be communicating with fast forward to mushy Ivanovich getting removed recalled from Ukraine someone that they really trusted now they have no choice really okay but to try to negotiate with the president and the best way that they can which is Zilenski you saw on that phone call kind of saying to the President Yes we'll investigate ah yes we'll do what you want essentially to try to appease him because again Ukraine faces an existential threat to its east and they are trying to navigate that right now the best way they can we're also getting a lot more back story on the origins of this I think deranged saying conspiracy theories about Ukrainian involvement in the two thousand sixteen election the idea that actually the DNC hack was a Ukrainian op that they conspired to frame Russia for it doesn't actually make sense when you sort of square it up but this this article near that Manafort was actually spreading that back in twenty sixteen it's been germinating and sold to the president time and time again what do we know about uh-huh so over the weekend buzz feed at CNN received a new cash of documents from the Justice Department then it was as hundreds of pages of records of notes that were taken during the investigation and in one seer set of notes from Rick Gates who had been the deputy campaign manager Paul Manafort's right hand man Rick Gates told investigators that basically as soon as news broke in two thousand sixteen the DNC had been hacked that wikileaks had these messages and they were going to release them. Paul Manafort was immediately saying it wasn't Russia it was Ukraine and Michael Flynn who was at the time a senior advisor to the campaign later became trump's short-lived first national security adviser also was immediately saying adamantly it wasn't Russia it wasn't Russia look at Ukraine so we had at the time three years ago to senior officials in the trump campaign trying to you direct the narrative away from Russia towards Ukraine it raises all sorts of questions of who they were talking to us who's ear they had and it's the theory that it has really persisted notwithstanding the findings of the US intelligence community that it was Russia that orchestrated the hack of the DNC that was

"Relying too much technology can have its risks multiple people, for example, have driven their cars into lakes because they were relying on GPS. There's a version of that for accountants these days accountants use software programs to do your taxes. It makes things faster and allows them to file online with the IRS well into tax season. Though software programs still haven't fully caught up with the new tax law. Marketplace's Mariel Sagarra reports the other day Andrea Parnasse SEPA in Brooklyn was working on a tax return. I was ready to cry. She'd been trying to figure out whether her client a business owner would qualify for a twenty percent tax deduction created under the new tax law. She done the numbers with paper and a calculator. And then I looked at the version on the computer and the software came up with something completely different. She found a friend to actually both CPA's. And they both said, you're I think you're right. I think the software is wrong. Parnasse didn't want to say which tax off where she uses, but she says it's been wrong. Several times this year. I've been hearing that a lot Jeff LeVine is the CPA in New York. We've put all our businesses on extension because we just are not confident that the software's handle everything correctly the tax overhaul became law at the end of two thousand seventeen but for the companies that make professional tax software tax act into it. Wolters Kluwer Thomson. Reuters there is a lot of information. They still needed. Mark Yeager a director at tax act says the IRS had to come out with new forms and rules than states have to figure out what they're doing. Do. We conform had to do. We follow the changes that happened at the federal level. Or do we start doing our own thing? Every time they change the guidance. We need to go ahead. And update the software Swazi Dorota is with Thomson Reuters. She says a lot of these changes have come down to the wire. Doors updates from local torch. These are coming in even today that means software companies have been in constant update mode, which means accountants have been in constant wait a minute mode because those updates could apply to their clients and worse all those updates can lead to glitches in the software like the one Andrea Parnasse, the CPA in Brooklyn noticed tax act Thompson, Reuters the two software companies we spoke to win say how many more glitches they've had this year. Parnasse says the scary thing is if she hadn't known the law. Well, she might not have noticed the error. What about the people that aren't going to seminars and really up on what the laws on what the answer should be. What about people who were just relying on their software to come up with the right answer? She says especially in a year like this accountants have to remember that the software is just a tool, and they can't let it do all the work for them. I'm Mary Barra for marketplace.
