President Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani says he was “misled” by Lev Parnas in an interview with Laura Ingraham on Fox News. Giuliani also accused Parnas of lying and
Per FoxNews, “Obviously, I was misled by him,” he said, after host Laura Ingraham played a portion of Parnas’ interview with MSNBC host Rachel Maddow. “I still feel sorry for him.”
Parnas told Maddow that while he was in contact with officials in Ukraine, he would “not do anything without the consent of Rudy Giuliani or [President Trump].”
“I have no intent, I have no reason to speak to any of these officials. It’s all about Joe Biden, Hunter Biden — also Rudy had a personal thing with the [Paul] Manafort stuff.”
On “The Ingraham Angle,” Giuliani said Parnas committed several “misrepresentations” during his lengthy MSNBC interview. He said that he did not want to go into too much detail, but would earnestly welcome the opportunity to testify before Congress on the matter.
“I wouldn’t mind being called as a witness for a lot of reasons, including being able to reveal the unbelievable amount of corruption that went on between the Democratic Party and Ukraine all throughout the Obama Administration. I think people will be astounded to know the hundreds of millions of dollars that illegally passed hands between Americans and Ukrainians.” the former mayor said.
“I will tell you — that [Parnas], in very large part, did not tell the truth,” Giuliani continued.
“Four people in that meeting — myself, [Parnas’] former partner Igor Fruman, and two others say that’s absolutely untrue — and the meeting never took place.”
Ingraham said that, if true, it would likely show that Parnas was not being directed by-proxy through Giuliani.
“It indicates he lied, misrepresented,” the ex-mayor responded. “Like Michael Cohen did.”
