Oh I totally understand why she didn't before. But now that it's out throw those motherfuckers under the bus.
And this is why everything trump has done in the last 4 years needs to be undone, especially if he was conspiring to assassinate an american ambassador.
You know, I've been unsure why Parnas is trying to bargain with the House and not the prosecutors that indicted him, but I think I've underrated the possibility Parnas actually has legit goods, wants to make a deal, but worries that Trump's DOJ will simply bury all his information and throw him under the bus.

Then what, kidnapping? I don't really see any other explanation.
And remember that these are all WhatsApp discussions, which people largely (erroneously) believe to be locked down tight, and I doubt most people think the scumbag they've always worked with will suddenly be the guy to turn himself in like this.
Part of it might be that he's genuinely pissed off and offended about Trump claiming to not know him. Parnas obviously loved being seen to be connected and that's part of what he sells to people. Being publicly thrown under the bus and dismissed as a nobody might sting to such a guy.
