Giuliani’s buddy, Lev Parnas, flips under pressure from NY Attorney's office...

Parnas has also provided investigators with documents, recordings, photos, text messages on What's App, an encrypted messaging platform, and materials from a Samsung phone, according to Bondy. Material from two other devices, an iPad and another iPhone, are also expected to be shared with them.

Bondy declined to comment on what was included in the materials he gave to investigators.

The bid to get an audience with lawmakers comes as Parnas is increasingly under pressure by federal prosecutors who have said they are likely to file additional criminal charges against him. It's also a gamble by Bondy to establish Parnas' value as a witness, which -- if successful -- could win him an audience with prosecutors and possibly leniency...

Prosecutors with the US attorney's office for the Southern District of New York seized over a dozen electronic devices, including cell phones, laptop computers and a hard drive from Parnas and his home when he was arrested on October 9 at Dulles International airport.

Parnas, his business partner Igor Fruman, and two others were charged with funneling foreign money into US elections and using a straw donor to obscure the true source of political donations. They have all pleaded not guilty to the charges.

Parnas has been itching to cooperate since the beginning, IMO. I think he realizes he was sucked into some serious @#$%&...uh, stuff by nefarious folks who remain unnamed, and now knows he's waaay over his head.

Dunno what will come of it, but it's certainly interesting.

I've not seen anything that leads me to believe that Parnas was in over his head - from everything I've read, this guy trafficks in under-the-table dirty deals and back-room intrigue.

I think he's trying to get himself out of trouble, and he doesn't owe anyone involved enough to stay quiet and go to prison. He's not going to get a pardon, so he might as well try to get a plea deal.
