The audience for “The View” gasped in disbelief after watching video of indicted Rudy Giuliani associate Lev Parnas dish out devastating allegations against President Donald Trump and his top officials.
The daily talk show opened with a segment on the political feud between Sen. Elizabeth Warren and Sen. Bernie Sanders, but then moved on to a pair of interviews Parnas gave to MSNBC and CNN.
The Ukraine-born Parnas told MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow and CNN’s Anderson Cooper about his efforts to pressure his home country’s government to announce an investigation of Joe Biden — and he insisted every move he made was sanctioned by Trump and known by Vice President Mike Pence.
“We would speak every day,” Parnas said. “I knew everything that was going on. After Rudy would speak with the president or come from the White House, I was the first person he briefed.”
The studio audience reacted in shock at that last statement, and host Whoopi Goldberg joked that everyone involved in the scheme was in big trouble.
“My plan is to send pearls to everybody who’s involved so they have something to clutch,” she said. “That’s a lot of pearls.”
Alabama Republican: ‘I want to see more people’ get coronavirus
On Thursday, Alabama Senate President Pro Tempore Del Marsh suggested that he wanted more people to get coronavirus — because he thinks America would develop "herd immunity" and reduce the spread enough to protect more vulnerable populations.
"I'm not as concerned so much as the number of cases. In fact, quite honestly, I want to see more people, because we start reaching an immunity the more people have it and get through it," said Marsh. "I don't want any deaths, as few as possible, say, I get it, but those people who are susceptible to the disease, especially more serious pre-existing conditions, elderly population, those folks, we need to, you know, do all we can to protect them. But I'm not concerned, I want to make sure that everybody can receive care."
The Secretary of Defense was briefed on Russian bounty on American soldiers — proving it isn’t the hoax Trump said it was
Last week, President Donald Trump finally heard the news that the Russian government was giving cash to Afghanistan's Taliban forces to murder American soldiers.
Initially, he began with Step one in the Trump list of processing a scandal: denial.
"Nobody briefed or told me, @VP Pence, or Chief of Staff @MarkMeadows about the so-called attacks on our troops in Afghanistan by Russians, as reported through an "anonymous source" by the Fake News @nytimes. Everybody is denying it & there have not been many attacks on us. Nobody's been tougher on Russia than the Trump Administration. With Corrupt Joe Biden & Obama, Russia had a field day, taking over important parts of Ukraine - Where's Hunter? Probably just another phony Times hit job, just like their failed Russia Hoax. Who is their 'source'?" tweeted Trump on June 28.
Here’s why Trump contradicted his own White House on the Supreme Court rulings
Following the Supreme Court's pair of 7-2 decisions rejecting President Donald Trump's claim to have absolute immunity from subpoenas, he blasted the ruling on Twitter, claiming he being unfairly targeted and the victim of "prosecutorial misconduct." However, White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany released a statement saying that "President Trump is gratified by today’s decision."
