Have watched. Much schmoozing. Maybe the main theme is fossil fuel interests continually feeding Trump information that benefits their own businesses. Specifically, "compressed natural gas (CNG)" (omg so sophisticated, literally a Hank Hill propane tank).
You should listen to all of it. Headphones. It's at once extraordinarily ordinary, but also completely out of line with how the president of the U.S. should regulate the information he assimilates into his decision making processes. What's interesting is that after this recording, Lev Parnas, Giuliani, Rick Perry, and a few other stable geniuses made attempts to break into the Ukrainian natural gas market over the course of the next year. Truthfully, I'm all for having an American company mitigate Ukrainian energy dependence on Russia, but it sounds like this was all a setup to compromise the entire GOP, with POTUS as the focal pressure point. Consciously or not, the GOP have aligned themselves with mutually beneficial Russian messaging (slash election tampering), because they know that their voter base is a dwindling minority, and they'll do anything to stay in office. And I know how insane this all sounds, but it's genuinely how I think history will judge this moment.
Oh, and this is reportedly a video taken by Igor Fruman, not Parnas. Why it was on Parnas's iCloud is an interesting question. How Parnas could "forget" about this video, and then "find" it the same day that it's first reported on is another interesting question.
There is a massive intelligence war being fought right now. I'm so confused, mk. Mr. Mackey, mk, and drugs are bad, mk.
