House impeachment report accuses Trump of misconduct and obstruction

Christianné Allen, Rudy Giuliani’s assistant, issued a statement today regarding a series of phone records detailed in the House Intelligence Committee’s report on the impeachment inquiry.“As the personal attorney to the President, Mr. Giuliani’s conversations with the White House are privileged; he was involved in gathering evidence to defend the President against false Democrat-manufactured claims of Russian collusion. Including corruption that Democrats are covering up in Ukraine. The media has supported their propaganda, but their biased coverup will soon be exposed in light of new evidence and testimony soon to be unveiled,” she said.More on this: The phone records, which are labeled in the report’s endnotes as coming from AT&T, show a web of communications between conservative journalist John Solomon, Giuliani, Ukrainian American businessman Lev Parnas, Rep. Devin Nunes of California and the White House’s budget office. CNN is owned by AT&T.Many of these calls occurred in April, according to the Democratic report, the same time Solomon pumped out columns in The Hill. The stories were filled with discredited conspiracy theories about then-US Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch and former Vice President Joe Biden, whose son was on the board of a prominent Ukrainian energy company.The Democratic report identifies at least four phone calls or attempted calls between Parnas and Nunes, including one call on April 12 that lasted longer than eight minutes. Within an hour of that call, Parnas also spoke with Giuliani, who later connected with Trump’s attorney Jay Sekulow and a “White House phone number,” according to the phone records.The call logs show the extent the Democratic investigators went to get hands on any evidence it could get, even as the administration blocked access to records. The records were not discussed publicly before the release of the report.Let’s block ads! (Why?)
