READ: House docs on Giuliani associate Lev Parnas’s texts, notes

House Democrats on Tuesday released new evidence as part of their impeachment inquiry into President Trump, saying the documents would be included as part of the official record it will send to the Senate before it begins impeachment proceedings next week.

Included in the documents are phone records, documents and other materials from Lev Parnas, an associate of Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani. Parnas was among several figures involved in efforts to get Ukraine to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden, one of Trump’s top political rivals.

The documents also include text messages between Giuliani and Parnas about former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch as well as a letter from Giuliani to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky requesting a meeting in May 2019, before Giuliani scrapped a trip to Ukraine.

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) wrote in a letter to House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) on Tuesday that there were additional documents beyond the ones released that contain “call records with sensitive personal information that should be protected from public disclosure.”
