Donald Trump’s long-time friend Rudy Giuliani often worked as a lawyer for the former president. He wasn’t very effective at his job. In fact, it seemed that Giuliani often made trouble for Trump rather than preventing it.Take Ukraine for example. Giuliani’s actions in the European country led to Trump’s first impeachment trial. It also led to the arrest of Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman.
While Parnas was a former ally to Giuliani, he has come out strongly against the lawyer since his arrest. And on Tuesday, the Ukrainian told Brianna Keilar that justice is finally coming for the former New York City mayor.
The host asked, “You finally heard this audio from this July 2019 call between Rudy Giuliani, Kurt Volker, who is a U.S. diplomat, and Andriy Yermak, top adviser to Ukraine’s president. What is your reaction, hearing that audio?”
“It doesn’t surprise me,” said Parnas. “I heard him lie so many times over the year and a half that Rudy was on, or maybe even a little longer. That’s all that we heard and that’s all we wanted, is to get an announcement from the Zelensky administration. And even that — prior to that, even the Poroshenko administration, to announce some sort of investigation into the then-candidate Joe Biden.”
Parnas later continued, “So it’s vindication, it’s validation, and really makes me feel good that now the truth is finally coming out, because there’s a lot more to the story than just this tape.”
