Giuliani associate Lev Parnas willing to testify Devin Nunes met with former Ukrainian official to get dirt on Joe Biden

Published

on

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) has been tied to yet another questionable encounter with Rudy Giuliani’s indicted associate.

It was revealed this week that Lev Parnas helped Nunes set up meetings in Europe in efforts to discredit the Russia investigation. It obviously failed, but Nunes closed his Intelligence Committee investigation nearly one year before Robert Mueller finalized his. Nunes missed several international connections, incidents of international donors funneling campaign cash into the U.S. and more.

Parnas already indicated he was willing to tell-all to federal authorities, particularly when it came to Trump and Nunes.

CNN.com reported Friday evening that Parnas intends to out Nunes for joining the team of people desperately searching for dirt on former Vice President Joe Biden.

“Mr. Parnas learned from former Ukrainian Prosecutor General Victor Shokin that Nunes had met with Shokin in Vienna last December,” said Parnas’ attorney Joseph Bondy.

Parnas has been indicted by federal authorities, and his information is likely to go to the trial, but it is unclear if Parnas is of interest to the Intelligence and Judiciary Committees.

“Nunes had told Shokin of the urgent need to launch investigations into Burisma, Joe and Hunter Biden, and any purported Ukrainian interference in the 2016 election,” Bondy continued.

The Trump administration has alleged any manner of impropriety for the Biden family, however, they weren’t concerned enough to launch an investigation at any point in the over three years they’ve been in office. Indeed, even this week, only Congress has launched an investigation into Hunter Biden, which is outside the scope of their authority, as the younger Biden is not an elected or appointed official and a private citizen.

Nunes told Parnas that he was working on his own investigation into the Bidens, and has been coordinating on propaganda pieces published by John Solomon, a writer for “The Hill.”

According to the report, Parnas could also talk about meetings he took at the Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C. about Ukraine. He explained that he was part of a “team” of people, who met several times a week in a private room in the Trump Hotel. It would be something that could be confirmed by security footage. Parnas’ lawyer said that the group consisted of Rudy Giuliani, Parnas, Solomon, and attorneys Joe diGenova and Victoria Toensing.

Parnas’ attorney explained to CNN that the Republican legislator planned the trip to Vienna, Austria after the GOP lost the mid-term elections in 2018 so he could hide it from colleagues.

“Mr. Parnas learned through Nunes’ investigator, Derek Harvey, that the Congressman had sequenced this trip to occur after the mid-term elections yet before Congress’ return to session, so that Nunes would not have to disclose the trip details to his Democrat colleagues in Congress,” said Bondy.

The Congressman was outed live during Thursday’s hearings by Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA).

Nunes refused to confirm or deny the accounts in the report. He also has never explained why he didn’t investigate the Bidens while he was in control of the House Intelligence Committee during the Obama administration or during the Trump administration.

Trump’s attack on Sotomayor and Ginsburg backfires as people point out conservative justices’ conflicts of interest

Published

on

This Monday, President Trump attacked liberal Supreme Court Justices Sonia Sotomayor and Justice Ruth Bader and demanded that they recuse themselves from any cases that involve him.

“‘Sotomayor accuses GOP appointed Justices of being biased in favor of Trump,’” Trump tweeted while citing Laura Ingraham of Fox News. “This is a terrible thing to say. Trying to ‘shame’ some into voting her way? She never criticized Justice Ginsberg when she called me a ‘faker’. Both should recuse themselves on all Trump, or Trump related, matters!”

If Bloomberg is so rich, why does he steal workers’ wages?

Published

on

Michael Bloomberg has been pummeled over the treatment of women at his media and data company. Yet that is not the only blemish on the employment record of Bloomberg L.P. The company also has a serious problem with wage theft.

Violation Tracker lists a total of $70 million in penalties paid by Bloomberg for wage and hour violations, putting it in 32nd place among large corporations. Yet many of the companies higher on the list – such as Walmart, FedEx, and United Parcel Service – employ far more people than the roughly 20,000 at Bloomberg.

Tennessee Christians are replacing health insurance with ‘sharing ministries’ that require people to live Godly lives: report

Published

christian evangelicals raising hands in praise prayer

On Tuesday, Brett Kelman of The Tennessean wrote about a spike in the uninsured rate in Tennessee — driven in part by 31,000 Christians in the state foregoing health insurance in favor of church-backed "sharing ministries."

These ministries are pitched as alternatives to medical coverage, but they are not health insurance at all — rather, they are better described as religious crowdfunding ventures where fellow congregants may cover your medical bills. But the key word is may. According to Kelman, "these groups don't actually guarantee any payment, and if you break their rules by smoking pot or having unmarried sex, you are on your own."
