Giuliani associate Parnas will comply with Trump impeachment inquiry - lawyer
[www.reuters.com]

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Lev Parnas, an indicted Ukrainian-American businessman who has ties to President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, is now prepared to comply with requests for records and testimony from congressional impeachment investigators, his lawyer told Reuters on Monday.

Parnas, who helped Giuliani look for dirt on Trump’s political rival, former Vice President Joe Biden, is a key figure in the impeachment inquiry that is examining whether Trump abused his office for personal political gain.

His apparent decision to work with the congressional committees represents a change of heart. Parnas rebuffed a request from three House of Representatives committees last month to provide documents and testimony.

“We will honor and not avoid the committee’s requests to the extent they are legally proper, while scrupulously protecting Mr. Parnas’ privileges including that of the Fifth Amendment,” said the lawyer, Joseph Bondy, referring to his client’s constitutional right to avoid self-incrimination.

Parnas would be a crucial witness if he were to cooperate. He has said he played a key role in connecting Giuliani to Ukrainian officials during Giuliani’s investigation into Biden and his son Hunter.

I heard that Parnas changed his mind and agreed to cooperate after he saw Trumpo on TV denying knowing him.

I doubt if Congress can overcome his Fifth Amendment rights because they can’t grant him immunity. That would have to come from Barr’s DOJ so we know that will never happen.

A public hearing full of fifth amendment invocations might not be the worst thing for the impeachment inquiry right now. No matter how you spin it, that always looks guilty as hell.
