BUSTED: Trump met indicted Giuliani associate years earlier than previously reported

Published

on

President Donald Trump met an indicted associate of former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani years earlier than has previously been reported.

“A photograph of President Donald Trump posing with a recently indicted associate of Rudy Giuliani was posted online in April 2014, two years prior to what had been their first known interaction,” Politico reported Saturday. “In the photo, Trump and Lev Parnas stand shoulder to shoulder, smiling at the camera at what appears to be an outdoor nighttime event. Trump wears a white, Trump-branded cap and white shirt under a jacket. Parnas wears a royal blue collared shirt.”

The photo was posted to Facebook on April 2, 2014 by Shawn Jaros, also known as Shawn Jarosovich.

Weeks preceeding the meeting, Jaros posted that he was looking forward to meeting “the donald soon”:

“Trump has sought to distance himself from Parnas, the Florida businessman at the center of a ballooning scandal over illicit foreign influence in his administration and, more broadly, the American political system. But the photograph and post provide further evidence that the two men are more closely tied than Trump has let on,” Politico reported.

The Daily Herald reports that Hubbard last week told an audience at Hinsdale Central High School that she brought a gun in with her to make a point about how unsafe schools are.

Hay bales in the town of Ferndale, Washington, that were covered with a tarp featuring the slogan "TRUMP 2020" were burned to the ground by vandals this Sunday, Q13Fox reports.

Police say deputies arrived on the scene to find the bales on fire, which amounted to around $500 in damage. According to Sheriff Bill Elfo, political vandalism is on the rise in the area.

This incident also resulted in the use of Fire District, Sheriff’s Office and Ferndale Police assets that were unavailable for the duration of the response to respond to other emergencies."
