Even CNN anchor Jake Tapper is warning Democrats that they are about to give President Trump the upper hand. Tapper attacked Democrats for their rush to trust Lev Parnas who was an associate of Giuliani.
For the first time since this whole Ukrainian mess occurred Parnas has now decided to speak out and leveled heavy charges against the President. He is accusing President Trump of having direct involvement in withholding aid to Ukraine until the Ukrainian government announced an investigation into the Biden’s.
The Leader of the House Intelligence Committee Rep. Adam Schiff has even provided a white sheet of paper with handwriting on it and is calling it evidence.
Here’s a handwritten note from Lev Parnas.

“We can’t ignore — Parnas has a serious credibility problem,” Tapper told a panel on Thursday. “He’s under indictment for campaign finance charges. The foreign minister of Ukraine told CNN’s Christiane Amanpour that he doesn’t trust a word Parnas is saying. And yet, I see people out there on social media — Democrats — acting as if this guy is the second coming of Theodore Roosevelt or something.”
President Trump has denied knowing Parnas with the exception of a few interactions at campaign fundraisers. As Democrat lawmakers have gone teenage fangirl crazy over Parnas Tapper is worried because he will say anything to stay out of jail, which could blow up in the Democrats face.
Even Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) mocked Rep. Adam Schiff over his “evidence.” Paul wrote a handwritten note trolling Schiff and then posted it on twitter.

Perhaps this is the most honest thing Tapper has ever said, “It’s just the specific references to ‘Pence knew, Barr knew, Trump knew.’ How would he know?”
Parnas is not part of the President’s inner circle there is no way he could know who knew what, Parnas is desperate and is trying to cut a deal to stay out of jail.
