“I don’t know him at all,” Donald Trump says of Lev Parnas

Donald Trump, when asked by reporters today about his association with Lev Parnes, said repeatedly that he had no idea who this man doing his bidding in Ukraine alongside Rudy Giuliani was. “I don’t know him at all, don’t know what he’s about, don’t know where he comes from, know nothing about him,” the President said.

Lev Parnas’s criminal defense attorney, Joseph Bondy, responded to this claim of Tump’s by sharing a video of his client and Roman Nasirov, the former head of the Ukrainian Fiscal Service, hanging out with Trump at Mar-a-Lago in December 2016.

What’s more, Lev Parnas today said that he was actually with Donald Trump, at a private dinner this past spring, when the President gave word to White House aide John DeStefano that Ukrainian Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch needed to be fired. According to Parnes, Trump said to DeStefano, “Fire her. Get rid of her.

Oh, and, for what it’s worth, it’s already been well established that Trump knew who Parnes was. It’s documented in an email from Trump attorney Jay Sekulow that the President signed-off on the idea that his legal advisor, John Dowd, would be representing Lev Parnas.

So, yeah, Donald Trump is lying. Again.

    We’ve all come to accept that the first thing the president does in any situation is lie. It’s a brave new world.

    God wouldn’t put a liar in charge of America, which is the country that he loves best. Except for when he allows Democrats to be President. So I completely believe Donald Trump when he says that he doesn’t even know what the letters LEV PARNAS spell. He would not lie. He’s incapable of it.

    According to the White House, Donald Trump also didn’t know either Karen McDougal or Stormy Daniels.

    The President has known Parnas for decades. Parnas started working for Trump’s father Fred as a teenager. There are pictures of Parnas with Trump in the ’80s.

    Lev “got his start in real estate, at one point selling Trump condos for Donald Trump’s father, Fred.”
