Parnas. See, this is what I'm talking about. The House can make this stuff go on forever.

Agree, there's every reason to keep the inquiry rolling. Today, we had:

1. This Parnas-Nunes testimony thing. I suspect it may be that Parnas's illegal RNC/GOP re-election slush fund donations were used to fund Nunes's frivolous "defamation" lawsuits (moo moo!). Now that's hearsay, just my theory.

EDIT: the biggest bombshell in weeks just went off. According to Parnas, in 2018, Nunes was involved, with Parnas, in secret attempts to persuade Ukraine to open investigations into the Bidens. omfg. This isn't proven, yet, but... wow. Just wow.

2. The NYTimes article I posted earlier today, revealing that the intelligence community briefed the Senate (presumably the Senate Intelligence Committee?) that Trump's Ukrainian conspiracy theories originate from a GRU (Putin) disinformation operation.

3. An early leak of the Dec. 9 DOJ IG report, which Trump supporters and even Trump himself have said will put Obama, Brennan, Clapper, Comey, Hillary, etc. behind bars, revealed a clerical error made by a lower-level lawyer on some paperwork, and no improper conduct surrounding the origins of the Trump-Russia investigation. Still, we should wait for the entire report.

I hope Parnas has documentation and corroborating testimony from others. It's not going to be easy for me to trust him. He's either a Russian operative, or has been led around by Russian operatives for a very, very long time.

Lev Parnas seems like the kind of guy who leaves a paper trail.

Dude I just watched that video again and Lev Parnas' instagram feed consists of (A) a dog (B-ZZ) Compramat on Rudi Giuliani and Donald Trump. It is completely fucking empty of everything else.

"Tell me more about that dog, though. We need to investigate the dog."
