Mike Pence 'couldn't have not known' about Ukraine pressure campaign, Lev Parnas claims

Published by Yahoo on Thu, 16 Jan 2020

Lev Parnas told MSNBC's Rachel Maddow on Wednesday that he is "100 percent" certain Vice President Mike Pence canceled his trip to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky's inauguration last spring because Ukraine refused to announce it was investigating former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter.Parnas, an associate of Rudy Giuliani, was indicted last year on campaign finance violations.
