Lev Parnas: "President Trump knew exactly what was going on."

quote [ Lev Parnas, an associate of Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani, talks with Rachel Maddow in an exclusive interview about the extent of Donald Trump's knowledge of the work he was doing to manipulate the president of Ukraine to help Trump smear political rival Joe Biden. ]

The jig is up. Parnas says Trump, Giuliani, Barr, Pence and Nunes were all in on it, and it had nothing to do with fighting corruption. He has texts, notes, and tons of other documentation, which is now in the hands of the House Democrats.

(feel like I'm channelling bbqkink, but Maddow has the scoop of the decade here)

I have a sinking feeling no facts will matter. Clear evidence of anything, be it anti-vax, politics, etc. seems to matter little these days. I can't tell if its just me getting old with a "kids these days" attitude, or if basic trust in facts and science are objectively worse.

It's not you getting old. Authoritarian assholes all over the world are actively and aggressively doing everything they can to destroy any faith in the concept of factual reality. The strategy has been around since at least the time of Goebbels, it's been refined and weaponized over the past few decades, and there are far too many bootlickers eagerly slurping it up now.

The impeachment hearing is basically going to be: "Republicans, its up to you to determine the punishment for the wrongdoing of the president. Oh, by the way, whatever you decide will also happen to you."

They might hem and haw about Christian values and morality and righteousness but it'll all go out the window if it means giving up an ounce of influence.

You have to remember that “kids these days” literally grew up with Fox News being considered a legitimate news source with people literally considering CNN on the “other end” of that spectrum. 🤷🏻‍♀️

I've always said that about HRC. At least two generations have been seeing her investigated and told she's corrupt by RW media, as well as in the news all over MSM in a negative light.

Republicans accuse the left of playing identity politics (which they invented and actually engage in - because if the right accuses the left of something, you can be guaranteed they are already engaging in such behavior), but have been playing generational politics for decades. They've successfully changed public discourse into russian style media. Lies, lies, gaslighting and more lies.

This Lev Parnas person is awaiting sentencing on charges that will send him to prison for a very long time. he will say ANYTHING to lessen that time.

Except Parnas has the receipts: emails, text messages, documents, lots of them. So it's possible to fact-check a lot of his claims, and lying to prosecutors is a good way to extend prison time. And there's more evidence coming out almost daily, like the video that just came out confirming his story about meeting with Trump about Yovanovich, or the excerpts from Bolton's book where he confirms the quid pro quo of the extortion scheme.

You know who else is potentially looking at prison for a very long time? That piece of shit in the Oval Office - you know the one, your tongue is deeply buried up his ass.
