Federal prosecutors will not block indicted Giuliani associate from testifying to Congress: report

Published

on

On Monday, the Washington Post reported that federal prosecutors will not stand in the way of indicted Rudy Giuliani associate Lev Parnas from testifying to Congress in impeachment proceedings.

The decision clears the way for Parnas to offer evidence — although he will still be bound by a court order that prohibits him from revealing details of his own criminal proceedings.

Parnas’ lawyer told a federal judge earlier on Monday that he potentially has evidence pertinent to the investigation on several of his personal devices, including five iPhones, two iPads, two Samsung devices, and an iMac, which had been confiscated by federal investigators.

Parnas, along with fellow Giuliani associate Igor Fruman, have been indicted on campaign finance charges related to the apparent scheme to extort Ukraine with military aid to make this provide dirt on former Vice President Joe Biden’s son. Giuliani, who was heavily involved in that scheme, is reportedly also under criminal investigation.

Everybody sort of knows Roger. And what happened to him is unbelievable. They say he lied. But other people lied, too. Just to mention [James] Comey lied. [Andrew] McCabe lied. Lisa Paige lied. Her lover Strzok, Peter Strzok, lied. You don't know who these people are? Trust me. They all lied."

Trump’s praise for Dana Rohrabacher comes back to haunt him after ex-congressman confirms offering pardon deal to Julian Assange

Published

on

Former Republican Rep. Dana Rohrabacher of California confirmed a shocking revelation to Yahoo News on Thursday — that he had offered a pardon to WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange in 2017 if he publicly disputed the notion that Russia had hacked the Democratic National Committee.

The offer was first reported on Wednesday when Assange’s lawyers revealed the exchange in a British court.

But while Rohrabacher confirmed that he presented Assange with the idea, he said President Donald Trump was not aware of the possible pardon. Instead, Rohrabacher said that he discussed the pardon with then-White House Chief of Staff John Kelly after the Assange meeting. But while Kelly was “courteous,” Rohrabacher said, they never broached the topic again, and there’s no indication Trump was even made aware of it.
