Giuliani Associate's Ukraine Insider Thought Russia Was Protecting Fired US Ambassador: Texts

‘I can’t believe Trump hasn’t fired this bitch…’

House Democrats on Tuesday released a cache of notes and text messages from former Rudy Giuliani associate Lev Parnas, shedding significant light on key aspects of ‘Ukrainegate‘ at the heart of impeachment proceedings against President Trump. This includes efforts to get the former US Ambassador to Ukraine recalled, as well as Rudy Giuliani laying out his mission and the situation in Ukraine at the time.

The first segment of the 38-page release contains several pages of undated, unverified, hand-written notes from the Ritz-Carlton Vienna, ostensibly penned by Parnas – which state “get zelensky to announce that the Biden case will be investigated,” and “Put together package,” followed by “Go to D.C. with package,” and “Do my ‘magic’ and cut deal.”

The second segment details January, 2019 efforts by Parnas to have Rudy Giuliani secure a visa for Viktor Shokin – the former Ukrainian prosecutor who instead testified via a January, 2019 phone call that he was fired at the request of then-VP Joe Biden for investigating Burisma – a Ukrainian gas company which hired Biden’s son hunter for more than $50,000 per month to sit on its board.

Btw they declined his visa today,” Parnas wrote Giuliani, referring to Shokin, to which Giuliani responds “I can revive it.”

Despite Giuliani involving “no 1” on it (possibly Trump), he was ultimately unable to secure the visa, leading to Shokin’s testimony via telephone.

The third segment of the release involves discussions from March, 2019 between Parnas and an associate surrounding the effort to get former US ambassador Marie Yovanovitch fired. The associate, Congressional House GOP candidate Robert F. Hyde of Connecticut, appears to have ties within the incoming Zelensky administration – which wanted Yovanovitch fired.

Fuck that bitch” Hyde texts Parnas – referring to fired US ambassador Marie Yovanovich, who ran the US embassy in Kiev at the time. “Wow. Can’t believe Trumo [sic] hasn’t fired this bitch. I’ll get right in that.”

Without instruction from Parnas, Hyde then texts Parnas to let him know that his associates on the ‘inside’ say she is “under heavy protection outside Kiev,” to which Parnas replies “I know crazy shit.”

Then, Hyde says ‘his guy’ (within the Zelensky administration) thinks Russia’s FSB may be protecting Yovanovitch.

Here is the entire exchange between Parnas and Hyde (emphasis ours,  via /u/ihategelatine) – which is currently being used to suggest nefarious intentions against Yovanovitch.

‘His guy’ in Ukraine thinks it’s the FSB? If Kiev’s water pressure falls off, they say ‘It’s the FSB’. Hyde sounds like he just fell off a turnip truck on his way to the Soprano’s club house for biscotti and espresso.

F_k that clueless nutjob, I say. Short of that, sell him a bridge over the Potomac. He’ll buy it.

His guy is probably Parubiy or one of his thousands of brown-shirt clones.

The Key word to all this is “I Thought.” In other words he is voicing his Option with know direct evidence. ” Undated, unverified, hand-written notes from the Ritz-Carlton Vienna.”
