Lev Parnas Says He Has a ‘Treasure Trove’ of Damaging Evidence on Attorney General Bill Barr

The indicted former business associate of Rudy Giuliani gave an interview Friday night claiming he has a “treasure trove” of information implicating Attorney General Bill Barr in the Trump-Ukraine scandal.

Lev Parnas followed up on a letter his attorney, Joseph Bondy, sent to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) earlier that day stating that his client would provide substantial evidence if subpoenaed.

The Senate on Friday shot down the possibility that it would hear from any witnesses, clearing the way for Trump’s acquittal next week, despite reporting from The New York Times that former National Security Advisor John Bolton wrote in a forthcoming book that Trump told him the hold in military aid to Ukraine last summer was dependent on investigations into the Bidens.

“I can’t wait until more of the book comes out, about what Bolton spoke to Barr about,” Parnas told MSNBC’s Ari Melber. “Because Barr knew exactly what Giuliani and we were doing there.”

“You think there is more to come that will prove that about Bill Barr?” Melber asked.

“Absolutely,” Parnas replied. “I think there is a treasure trove.”
