    Probably deserves his own thread.

    I don't watch Maddow but he's on it tonight. He's talking and has lots of documents.

    All these attorneys that claim they have stuff on Trump like Avenatti and Cohen all end up in jail.

    What are the odds this one does too?

    Just a quick reminder that one of the things that put Cohen in jail was one count of making an excessive campaign contribution at the request of a candidate (Trump) for the "principal purpose of influencing [the] election".

    Parnas is the kind of source that I’d want corroborating evidence of its accuracy.

    Looks legit. The timing with the impeachment trial in the Senate is I'm sure just serendipitous.

    People he's thrown under the bus: Trump, Nunes, Barr, Pence, Giuliani.

    Funny how all the sudden Nunes now seems to remember him.

    lmao, last month Nunes threatened to sue fellow congressman Ted Lieu for saying Nunes and Parnas conspired together, this was before all this info came out.

    It as an impressively terrible 8 or 9 days for Trump on the Ukraine situation:

    Parnas comes out and through documents and interview reveals he was working with Giuliani who was working as the personal attorney for Trump. He was hatching an agreement with the Ukraine to get dirt on Joe Biden if the ambassador was removed (which Trump did). And Trump was well aware of everything.

    In the irony of ironies Ukraine has opened an investigation in the Trump crew illegally spying on the ambassador.

    The GAO found that Trump's withholding of Ukraine aid was illegal.

    And finally it's getting hot for some of his defenders (i.e. Nunes).

    @Hawker-2001 Hawker, I'm curious about your take on the GAO finding. You've stated repeatedly that unless a law is broken, the president shouldn't be impeached. And while there are potentially numerous laws Trump broke, we now have the GAO specifically stating his withholding of Ukraine funds violated federal law. So do you think he should be impeached over that?

    If a lie is told often enough idiots like you will eventually believe it.

    This is a perfect example of the right wing, so thank you cornstalk.

    "They aren't overtly partisan in my favor? I won't listen to them."

    They say they are non-partisan because that's their role. Do a few google searches on the GAO.

    So if you think everything is partisan, wouldn’t this agency skew right when the administration is Republican?

    No, CNN, MSNBC, George Stephonopolis and Chuck Todd are the first ones that come to mind for most well informed and objective people as the media sources most prone to lying.

    And what evidence from the 2 seconds of research you did proved they are partisan?

    That's because that's the crowd Trump runs with. He's a crook just like them.

    Idiots like you believed every false mainstream media story that’s come along for three years now. You have no credibility.

    Fred Trump is trending on Twitter and from what I can gather, it appears it just came out that Parnas worked for Fred Trump since he was 16.

    Am I wrong in saying that Trump said he didn't know him or know him that well? I haven't been following too closely.

    I know Nunes tried to say that until he got caught lying.

    Just being honest. You can handle the truth can’t you?

    Or are you a TDR snowflake who gets their feelings hurt?

    That’s a rhetorical question. You have perpetual sand in your vag.

    Oh. I know the truth is nowhere near anything Trump says or does. The fact that you believe everything that lying, sociopathic Narcissist has to say speaks volumes.

    Honestly @Hawker-2001, does the fact the GAO said Trump broke the law change your position on the impeachment? That was one of - if not the - main critique you had of the proceedings.

    You are either the densest poster on this board, or you are trolling because the differences have been explained to you 1000 times.

    Just because New York Times says JOE PRO QUO did not break the law does not mean nothing , I am going to tell you again they need to bring it up if they have witnesses in the impeachment hearing, I bet if Trump kids did the same thing it would be all different
