House releases note on ‘Biden case’ from Giuliani associate

House releases note on ‘Biden case’ from Giuliani associate”

One handwritten note reads: "get Zalensky to announce that the Biden case will be investigated" - a reference to the ongoing efforts to get Ukraine to announce probes to benefit Mr. Trump politically. Yovanovitch testified in the House impeachment hearings that she was the victim of a "smear campaign".

The late inclusion of Parnas' records, which were only made available to investigators in the last few days, suggested Democrats were trying to further substantiate their case before it heads to the Senate for trial.

Among the documents is a screenshot of a previously undisclosed letter from Giuliani to Ukrainian President Volodymir Zelensky before he took office.

Democrats will vote Wednesday on the resolution that will not only transmit the articles, but also name impeachment managers, allocate trial funds, and send over all the House's evidence.

Committee investigators found an image of a letter from Giuliani to Zelensky dated May 10, 2019, after Zelensky won election but before he was inaugurated.

Giuliani remains one of Trump's personal attorneys, but as of now is not expected to join in his defense on the Senate floor. Parnas and Fruman played a key role in helping Giuliani search for damaging information on former Vice President Joe Biden in Ukraine, which ultimately led to Trump's impeachment.

The montage shows Parnas with Kushner and Ivanka Trump, as well as the president and his two eldest sons, with Sister Sledge's "We Are Family" playing in the background. "Just to be precise, I represent him as a private citizen, not as President of the United States", Giuliani wrote. "Separate representation is usual process". In the letter, Giuliani announces himself as Trump's personal lawyer and requests a meeting with Zelenskiy "as personal counsel to President Trump and with his knowledge and consent". He said he "would be accompanied by my colleague Victoria Toensing, a distinguished American attorney who is very familiar with this matter".

The phone contains the tantalizing prospect of more information around Parnas's associations with Ukrainian oligarchs and the extent to which those links reach Giuliani and, by extension, his client President Trump.

Democrats said the delay allowed new evidence to emerge through government records requests - and now, the material provided by Parnas.

In a follow-up conversation the following day, Giuliani told Parnas: "It's going to work I have no 1 in it".
