Sean Davis, co-founder of the Federalist pointed out a glaring issue with the new impeachment evidence Democrats have obtained from Lev Parnas.
According to Town Hall:
As House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced the Democratic impeachment managers this morning, new “explosive” evidence dropped last night in yet another attempt by Democrats to convince the public that their impeachment push isn’t a partisan circus. It’s also meant to add pressure on Senate Republicans to allow witnesses. Everyone has heard enough about Trump, Russia, and collusion. It’s over. Done. The only areas still believing this myth are portions of the country where the most deranged anti-Trump voters reside. No one cares, especially in the swing states. But let’s give this new evidence a look. Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), chair of the House Intelligence Committee and part of the impeachment team passed on some note from an associate of Rudy Giuliani dealing with the Trump-Ukraine allegation that started the Democrats’ impeachment push. To recap, in July, Trump supposedly threatened to withhold aid from Ukraine unless they investigated Hunter Biden’s board position at Burisma, an energy company (via Axios):
House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) sent a letter to House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.) on Tuesday notifying him of two flash drives containing additional evidence related to the impeachment inquiry, which was obtained from indicted Giuliani associate Lev Parnas.
Why it matters: As Axios’ Alayna Treene reported earlier today, a public release of some or all of these materials could give Democrats new ammunition to argue that the White House must turn over more information and allow new testimony from witnesses.
The big picture: The Soviet-born Parnas helped connect Rudy Giuliani to Ukrainian officials while the pair were engaged in a campaign to pressure Ukraine to investigate President Trump’s political opponents.
The Democrats have relied on loose evidence throughout the whole process so this comes as no surprise to anyone who has been watching.
