Appearing on Rachel Maddow last night, former Giuliani associate Lev Parnas claimed Rudy Giuliani had told him to deliver a “harsh message” in a “harsh way” to Ukraine that more than military aid was at stake, but “all aid” unless they announced an investigation into the Bidens.
It was a little more than that. Basically, the message that I was supposed to.. that I gave Sergey Schafer was that a harsh message that was told to give it to him in a very harsh way, not in a pleasant way.
Who told you to give it to him in a harsh way?
Mayor Giuliani. Rudy Giuliani told me after meeting at the Presidential White House. His message was, it wasn’t just military aid. It was all aid. Basically the relationships would be sour. That we would stop giving him any kind of aid.
Lev Parnas, associate of @rudygiuliani, said that, on behalf of Rudy and @realDonaldTrump, he gave "a very harsh message" that "all aid" would be withheld if there was no Biden investigation. pic.twitter.com/7xaqIyYeDG
