Public testimony in the House impeachment may have wrapped, at least for now, but the House Intelligence Committee is still reviewing new material related to the case. ABC News is reporting that the committee is reviewing audio, video, and pictures provided by Lev Parnas. The Rudy Giuliani associate is currently under arrest for campaign finance charges. He has been subpoenaed for records relating to “efforts to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and Ukraine, multiple sources familiar with the matter tell ABC News.”
The material submitted to the committee includes audio, video and photos that include Giuliani and Trump. It was unclear what the content depicts and the committees only began accessing the material last week.
However, some of the Parnas material sought by congressional investigators leading Trump impeachment probe is in possession of federal investigators within the Southern District of New York & thus held up from being turned over, according to sources familiar with the matter. https://t.co/NJSRMuA9gr— John Santucci (@Santucci) November 25, 2019
An attorney for Parnas released a statement saying:
“Mr. Parnas has vociferously and publicly asserted his wish to comply with his previously issued subpoena and to provide the House Intelligence Committee with truthful and important information that is in furtherance of justice, not to obstruct it.
His evidence and potential testimony is non-partisan, and not intended to be part of a battle between the left and the right, but rather an aid in the determination by our government of what is in the best interests of our nation.”
