Here’s a handwritten note from Lev Parnas. “Get Zelensky to announce that the Biden case will be investigated”

I'm about 20 pages in and it's almost 100% raw intel. Like notes on hotel napkins, text message and email convos with no context given, stuff in untranslated Ukrainian, etc.

Edit: Pg 9 passport for Viktor Shokin?
Pg 10 starts text messages with Rudy
Pg28 letter from Rudy directly to Zelensky requesting 30 min of his time right after his election. cc's Victoria Toensing and Arsen Avakov

Pg 38 is the kicker: Letter from Jay Sekulow to John Dowd on October 2nd, stating Trump will ALLOW Dowd to represent Fruman and Parnas. Trump infamously stated he didn't know either man about 1 month later.

Mr. Hyde wrote “Wow. Can’t believe Trumo [sic] hasn’t fired this bitch. I’ll get right in that.” Mr. Hyde then sent a series of text messages suggesting that he had Ambassador Yovanovitch under physical surveillance in Kyiv and that “They are willing to help if we/you would like a price.”
Just a lazy suggestion of assassinating an ambassador.

Seems like kind of a big deal.

So yeah will Parnas go on record and say that they were talking about fucking KILLING the ambassador? Because I'd love to see Republicans back that shit.

I hesitate to make this accusation, but from these texts? It sure LOOKS like they were seriously floating putting out a hit on one of our own ambassadors.
Oh I wouldn't make the accusation either if it wasn't without basis. Those texts are scary as hell, it's undeniable what was being suggested.

This is arguably the most damning evidence to date and completely changes the landscape of impeachment. Giuliani could be looking at a very long time behind bars along with a bunch of cohorts.

Come on guys, stay civil. it's okay that americans are plotting assassinations of other american citizens because they don't fit the trump narrative.

Seriously though, people need to be locked up for good long ass time. Preferably until they die. Erase them from public existence.

Somehow the more we learn the uglier and worse it is. And these people continue to look stupider and stupider thinking nothing would ever come to light.

Was Schiff sitting on this to release it strategically? Or was it really brand new info?

Because it forces media talking points while the GoP tries to bury it all. Good timing if you think about it. Everyone was expecting a L for the Dems on the handover to the GoP, but this forces them into another corner. Not that top brass care, but still. It's a bad look for the GoP to just keep shoveling dirt on it while it's still alive and kicking.

They've been trying to get stuff like this for months. Judge finally let it happen for Lev.
Republicans were hoping they could say "no witnesses" and rush a sham trial without any thru.

I think it's new info. Parnas and his lawyer showed up in D.C. a few days ago to, as they said, deliver this to House Intel.

Not sure if planned, but this was always going to happen. Hell, the Mueller stuff alone that the Judiciary is still focused on is still just the tip of the iceberg in terms of information that could and will be released.
It's the courts holding most of the exciting developments up, but the stalling was always going to end sometime this year. Only question is if it would happen before, during, or after impeachment. For the courts, it's after. But that never precluded more witnesses coming forward with information and testimony.

I hope in the coming months we also hear from Rick Gates and other Mueller grand jury witnesses even if it's not within another official impeachment hearing. Lots and lots of juicy information that most people, including me, still have no clue about.

Rudy letter and Hyde message chain is starting to get picked up by mainstream news and online personalities.



I'm thinking this might blow up overnight.

You know what they say about jumping to conclusions and all, but damn do those texts need an explanation. Preferably from someone who knows EXACTLY what they were talking about and is willing to sell Trump and his cronies under the bus.

Like the recipient of the texts, and the person who submitted them to Congress, who is willing and ready to testify, Lev Parnas? I agree!
