The House Intelligence Committee is releasing new documents that were given to them from Rudy Giuliani’s associate Lev Parnas, who indicted late last year.
One note, scribbled on Ritz-Carlton paper appears to be reminders for how to proceed on the conspiracy involving President Donald Trump’s bribe to Ukraine.
One page of the notes specifically reminds to “do my magic,” which was among the many things questioned by those reading the news about it.
“If you have to write a note to self saying “do my magic,” maybe you need to rethink things,” said Bloomberg reporter Ryan Beckwith.

The removal of Yovanovitch was always a sign this was a real conspiracy in pursuit of an illicit end, not a case of mere haphazard, fitfully-expressed wishes of Trump. Yovanovitch stood in the way of effectuating the conspiracy. And she was removed at the direction of Trump. https://t.co/UnQKDFGjBJ

Incidentally, if you think it is improbable people in a criminal conspiracy would write something like that down, let me introduce you to a little group of people I like to call "clients"
