Two associates of Rudolph W. Giuliani pressed the then-president of Ukraine in February to announce investigations into former vice president Joe Biden's son and purported Ukrainian interference in the 2016 election in exchange for a state visit, and a lawyer for one of the associates said Friday that they were doing so because Giuliani -- acting on President Trump's behalf -- asked them to.

The Giuliani associates, Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman, met with then-Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko in Kyiv, said Edward B. MacMahon Jr., a lawyer for Parnas. He said they were working on behalf of Giuliani, Trump's personal lawyer, who was operating on orders from Trump.

"There isn't anything that Parnas did in the Ukraine relative to the Bidens or the 2016 election that he wasn't asked to do by Giuliani, who was acting on the direction of the president," MacMahon said.

The February meeting " first reported by the Wall Street Journal " shows how Trump's lawyer and those working for him were attempting to spur investigations that would help Trump politically months before the president pressed his Ukrainian counterpart in a controversial phone call to conduct such probes.

In normal times two obvious bagmen with dual citizenship ties - purporting to represent the POTUS through the blessing of his personal attorney - actually meeting with a foreign leader as it regards anything approaching the supposed interests of this nation would have been an unquestioned scandal.

Today, it will just be chalked up as yet another incident unrelated to all the other incidents, none of them proof of wrongdoing over even the intent of wrongdoing to those bereft of perspective. No one has to go looking for Trump's transgressions against this nation's laws and strictures, they all come and find us as the bunglers, innocents, and fools end up telling what they've seen and experienced when everything is exposed.

Of course they did it before..., and they'll do it again unless and until someone stands up and stops them.

So much of this story is wrapped around Parnas and Fruman. When it is all laid bare, a lot more Republicans are going to be implicated.

This is a mob link directly to Roody Caloody and Benedict Donald. Popcorn now!

In other words, everyone knows Biden did wrong. But the only way to get the media to actually publish it is to implicate a Con so it becomes a hot topic. A hate-filled Con could say Trump did what he did just to get the story out. A balanced person with hope in their heart would hope that both Trump and Biden are investigated to the same degree. Unfortunately, that will never happen. Dims will continue to try to make every Con POTUS the worst person who has ever lived and Cons will continue to make sure the world knows just how dim the Dims are.
