The series aims at countering the narrative of President Trump attempting to extort Kyiv into announcing politically beneficial investigations, supported by testimony from dozens of witnesses at impeachment hearings conducted by House Intelligence Committee Chair Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA).
It's unclear what legitimate objective the president's personal lawyer would have to speak at length with the White House Office of Management and Budget.
He also was revealed to have phoned the Office of Management and Budget, the entity dealing with purse strings issues like stalled Ukraine security funding. You'd have to ask him.
In the clip, one can hear a reporter, who is out of the frame, ask the president if he had any idea as to why Giuliani would need to make the calls recorded in the call log. But you'd have to ask him.
The 300-page House report forms the basis for the House Judiciary Committee's efforts beginning Wednesday to formally move forward on drafting articles of impeachment against Trump.
"It'll be boring. Not many people will be watching today, ' Trump predicted".
The Intelligence Committee's report, released Tuesday, included the phone records and texts - disclosing only that they were obtained by "document production" from AT&T Inc. and Verizon Communications Inc., not whether they were obtained by subpoena or whose records might specifically had been sought.
President Trump's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani has coffee with Ukrainian-American businessman Lev Parnas at the Trump International Hotel in Washington, U.S. September 20, 2019. Parnas, who is an associated with Rudolph Giuliani, has been indicted on conspiracy, false statements and falsification of records.
The records of Giuliani's phone calls, as reported by the New York Times, show that through the spring and summer he was in contact with the White House as well as a number of officials and associates-including Nunes and Hannity.
'Phone records also show contacts on April 10 between Mr. Guiliani and Rep. Nunes, consisting of three short calls in rapid succession, followed by a text message, and ending with a almost three minute call, ' the report continued. Nunes also said that he did not communicate with Parnas last December.
