McConnell releases proposed Senate impeachment trial rules

Both Parnas and Fruman were deeply involved in helping Giuliani, Trump's personal lawyer and former New York City mayor, try to persuade Ukrainian officials to launch an investigation of the business dealings of Joe Biden's son.

Giuliani said he was "heartbroken" by Parnas and still feels "compassionate for him".

Here is the guy "I don't know him at all, I don't know what he's talking about, I don't know where he's from, I don't know anything about him", w Lev Parnas & Roman Nasirov, former chief of service Ukrainian tax, at Mar-a-Lago 12/16.

"They're asking for Hunter Biden is just more of a smear of Hunter Biden that the President is trying to get the Ukraine to do", Nadler added.

"I'm saying that Hunter Biden has no knowledge of the accusations against the president", he said after being questioned by host Margaret Brennan.

Lawyers for Parnas - who is accused of injecting foreign influence into USA campaigns - go on to write that Barr must step aside due to his proximity to the impeachment inquiry into President Trump. The charge hung over his head.

"I submit that this is an even more important question than how you vote on guilt or innocence because whether we have a fair trial will determine whether you have a basis to render a fair and impartial verdict", he continued. The initial vote doesn't preclude calling witnesses later in the process, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) has said.

Giuliani then countered some of Parnas' specific "misrepresentations", including the fact that a White House meeting he claimed never took place and that senior member of the House Intelligence Committee, Devin Nunes (R., CA), the former Ukrainian prosecutor Viktor had never met Shokin in Austria in 2018.

The House's top impeachment prosecutor said this week that calling in Hunter Biden to testify as a witness during the Senate's impeachment trial would constitute "an illegitimate abuse" of the process.

Parnas also told Maddow that Attorney General William Barr was up to date on his activities.

'I will tell you that he, in very large part, did not tell the truth, ' Giuliani told Ingraham after watching the clip.

Schiff and the six other impeachment managers spoke to reporters on the House side of the Capitol, a few hours before the Senate was set to begin proceedings.
