Dear Commons Community,
President Donald Trump was captured on tape (listen above) at an April 2018 dinner with Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman demanding the firing of Marie Yovanovitch, who was then the US Ambassador to Ukraine. It is significant for a number of reasons especially since the Trump has said that he doesn’t know Lev Parnas who was arrested on campaign finance charges. Parnas is a close associate of Rudy Giulani both of whom are at the center of the Ukraine impeachment scandal. The audio of the tape above was aired on CNN’s Don Lemon show last night and includes commentary by Lemon and his guests.
