Some of the most damning calls in the impeachment investigation were coming from inside the House.
On Tuesday, and after weeks of impeachment hearings, the House Intelligence Committee released its report on President Trump’s dealings with Ukraine. It unearthed the fact that Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani made calls back and forth between Ukrainian operatives and the White House, and even that one of the committee’s top members engaged with one of the Ukrainians Giuliani had tasked with digging up damaging information on Democrats.
Call records obtained by the committee show Intelligence Committee Ranking Member Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) spoke multiple times with Lev Parnas, one of the two indicted operatives Giuliani sent to Ukraine to research about the Bidens. Parnas’ lawyer spoke out after this revelation was released by condemning Nunes for not recusing himself from the impeachment investigation.
Nunes’ Democratic counterpart House Intelligence Committee Chair Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) also had some harsh words after debuting the report.
