Giuliani - Prime Enabler

Witness after witness has described Rudy Giuliani as the prime enabler behind impeachable offenses committed by Trump.

It was August 2018 when he went into business with two Soviet-born émigrés. News footage from an Oct 20, 2018, midterm election rally in Nevada shows indicted Rudy Giuliani associate Lev Parnas standing behind President Donald Trump. Parnas and Igor Fruman illegally funded donations from foreign nations to Republican political campaigns to buy influence.

Giuliani has admitting receiving at least $500k for his services.
The video of the rally is the latest example of how the pair wielded their proximity to Giuliani and used political donations to gain access to the president, foreign policy, and GOP campaigns. Parnas and Fruman were arrested in October as they were attempting to leave the country. They were indicted on four counts, including conspiracy.

Trump has repeatedly denied knowing Parnas. He appeared to have a VIP badge for Trump's event. The Trump rally wasn't the only one in the final weeks heading up the November 2018 midterm elections. In photos posted on Twitter, the duo can be seen with Giuliani at events in Michigan, New Hampshire, Florida, Indiana and again in Nevada.

Last year Lev Parnas received a windfall of money from prominent Ukrainian oligarch Dmytro Firtash who is fighting extradition to the United States and is well known for having ties to the Russian mob. This summer, Parnas told business associates that his company was receiving payments from Firtash. Parnas also said he met with Firtash several times over the summer in Vienna.

In June he brought up Firtash's plight in a face-to-face meeting with Attorney General William Barr.

Lev Parnas has broken ranks, opening a dialogue with impeachment investigators. He is said to be hurt by multiple Trump denials of their relationship. His new lawyers contacted the investigators last week. Parnas was central to Giuliani’s scheme to dig up dirt on the Bidens, and could offer an insider's view about the efforts in Ukraine. The turnabout occurred after Trump repeatedly denied knowing Parnas. Parnas has maintained that he has had extensive dealings with POTUS.

Fruman, Parnas, and Giuliani traveled repeatedly to Ukraine and pushed for the ouster of US ambassador to Ukraine, Marie L. Yovanovitch.
