Parnas Says Ex-Trump Attorney Told Him To ‘Be A Good Boy’ And Sacrifice Himself For President Trump

Published

The plot continues to thicken in the impeachment proceedings against President Trump as an associate of the president’s lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, is now claiming that an attorney visited him in jail and asked him to sacrifice himself to protect Trump.

Lev Parnas, who has been charged with violating campaign finance laws, recently recounted a conversation that took place between himself and Trump lawyer John Dowd in an interview he did with MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow on Thursday.

“I started seeing in the process of the bail stuff, the way things were going on, they were more concentrating on — I didn’t feel that they were trying to get me out,” Parnas, 47, said. “John Dowd, instead of comforting me, trying to calm me down, telling me, ’It’s going to be OK, don’t worry,’ basically started talking to be like a drill sergeant, giving me orders, like, ‘Be a good boy.’”

Parnas clarified that he was not quoting Dowd verbatim, but that’s how he interpreted Dowd’s message. He said he fired Dowd during that heated conversation.

“Were they telling you to sacrifice yourself in order to protect the president?” Maddow asked.

“That’s what I felt,” Parnas said. “They tried to keep me quiet.”

Parnas allegedly aided Giuliani in a campaign to pressure Ukraine to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and his involvement in a potential abuse of power to protect his son, Hunter, from an investigation into some rather shady business dealings.

Parnas has also handed over some documents and messages to the House Intelligence Committee that includes more detailed information about the “pressure campaign” which also includes a letter Giuliani sent to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. The letter seems to indicate that Giuliani was acting at the direction of the president.

The president commented on this by denying he knew anything about the letter and claimed not to know Parnas.

White House Announces Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal

This could be a big boon for a number of American industries as well.

Regardless of what you think of Joe Biden touting this latest infrastructure deal as a “win”, it sure is nice to see that our government isn’t completely and utterly broken in the 21st century. It took months of bickering and infighting, and more than a few moments of political pettiness, but it appears as though we may just have an infrastructure deal after all. President Biden announced on Thursday that the White House and a group of bipartisan senators had reached a deal on a $579 billion infrastructure plan. “It’s been a very long time since the last time our country was able to strike a major bipartisan deal on American infrastructure,” Biden said at the White House. Biden said he and congressional Democrats had to concede some on what’s known as “human infrastructure,” such as investments for childcare and spending on climate change. Democrats will instead look to pass additional spending in a separate bill through a Senate budgetary process called reconciliation, which requires only a simple majority to pass legislation. And, despite no one having seen the bill yet, Biden is confident that Congress will send it to his desk to sign in the coming days. The radical left will likely be the most disappointed in the bill, after having previously suggested a goal of a $10 trillion investment in climate change initiatives.

Miami Building Collapsed After Years of Sinking into the Earth

Scientists has determined the issue years ago.

Just north of Miami, in the nearby town of Surfside, there is a massive rescue effort underway as nearly 100 people remain unaccounted for in the wake of a residential high-rise’s collapse. That number was nearly double the early estimate, having risen dramatically on Thursday afternoon as more information became available to those leading the effort. The late-night collapse, which was captured on video by a nearby surveillance camera, appeared to be a sudden, freak accident, but new information seems to indicate that there might be more to this story. A Florida high rise that collapsed early Thursday was determined to be unstable a year ago, according to a researcher at Florida International University. The building, which was constructed in 1981, has been sinking at an alarming rate since the 1990s, according to a 2020 study conducted by Shimon Wdowinski, a professor in the Department of Earth and Environment. When Wdowinski saw the news that the Champlain Towers South condominium in Surfside had collapsed, he instantly remembered it from the study, he said. “I looked at it this morning and said, ‘Oh my god.’ We did detect that,” he said. But not everyone agreed with the assessment. Wdowinski said his research is not meant to suggest certainty about what caused the collapse. The building was sinking at a rate of about 2 millimeters a year in the 1990s, and could have slowed or accelerated in the time since, he said. In his experience, even the level of sinking observed in the 1990s typically results in impacts to buildings and their structures, Wdowinski said. He believes that very well could have been the case for the Champlain building in the 1990s, based on his findings. “It was a byproduct of analyzing the data. We saw this building had some kind of unusual…
