Here are the 6 Republicans Lev Parnas says are part of the Ukraine conspiracy — and he has the evidence

Published

on

Former Rudy Giuliani associate Lev Parnas sent a letter through his attorney to Mitch McConnell, saying that he is not only is he prepared to testify but he has pertinent evidence that could specifically confirm the guilt of six major Republicans.

President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence were both implicated for being well aware of what Rudy Giuliani was doing in Ukraine and any moves that could achieve their end goal.

As Energy Secretary, Rick Perry was involved with several Ukraine energy company executives or investors. He, too, was well acquainted with the scheme being cooked up, according to Parnas.

Parnas indicated during the interview, he and his attorney Joseph Bondy did with MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow, that Attorney General Bill Barr was part of the “team” of people who knew what was going on. However, Barr also was traveling the world trying to cook up an investigation into former Secretary Hillary Clinton. He ultimately failed to find anything.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was well aware of what was happening because he was complaining about Giuliani being a cog in the corrupt machine.

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) has become a dear ally of the president’s in the wake of the death of his friend Sen. John McCain (R-AZ). As the chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Graham was in a strong position to make decisions that could have hurt the president during the impeachment. Graham was present with Trump on the golf course at the same time Guiliani was at the clubs meeting with Parnas and others. It’s unclear what he knows about the plot.

There’s no respite from Trump’s vindictiveness and foolishness

Published

on

As we know, even in the midst of a national emergency, Donald Trump could find time and bandwidth to continue his retribution campaign.

He dismissed Michael Atkinson, the inspector general for the intelligence agencies, for doing “a terrible job,” satisfying his own thirst for vengeance for anyone who actually adhered to law and practice over blind loyalty to Trump himself. Indeed, asked about it the next day, Trump underscored his action by saying, Atkinson “was no Trump supporter, that I can tell you.”

It was an act that we once would have labeled corruption, by Democrats and Republicans – that is using the office for personal purposes – if Congress and too many Americans had not since become inured by so many like instances.

This is how Taiwan and South Korea bucked the global lockdown trend

Published

on

As the coronavirus pandemic sparks global lockdowns, life has continued comparatively unhindered in places like Taiwan, South Korea and Hong Kong after their governments and citizens took decisive early action against the unfolding crisis.

At first glance Taiwan looks like an ideal candidate for the coronavirus. The island of 23 million lies just 180 kilometres (110 miles) off mainland China.

Yet nearly 100 days in, Taiwan has just 376 confirmed cases and five fatalities while restaurants, bars, schools, universities and offices remain open.

The government of President Tsai Ing-wen, whose deputy is an epidemiologist, made tough decisions while the crisis was nascent to stave off the kind of pain now convulsing much of the rest of the world.

Republican ex-lawmaker with coronavirus scolds Wisconsin GOP for forcing voters to risk their health

Published

on

On CNN Tuesday, former Rep. Charlie Dent (R-PA), who is himself dealing with a bout of COVID-19, chastised the Wisconsin GOP for doing everything in their power to block the state elections from being moved — and forcing many voters to stand in line and risk exposure to the virus to cast their ballot.

"I have to tell you, here in Pennsylvania we have a Democratic governor and Republican legislature," Dent told host Don Lemon. "They postponed the election here from April 28 until June 2. Without any controversy. Everybody agreed it was the right thing to do and they moved on. I'm surprised Wisconsin took this risk, knowing they don't have to."
