“Take Her Out”: Donald Trump’s Role in the Ukraine Scheme Is Reportedly Caught on Tape https://t.co/x55ytNbBVG via @NewYorker
— John Cassidy (@JohnCassidy) January 24, 2020
The story says this recording of Trump & Lev Parnas (who he’s repeatedly said he doesn’t know) talking about taking out Yovanovitch was made by Igor Fruman. Unless it was somehow in Parnas’ cache of materials, this could imply Fruman is also cooperating. https://t.co/S0aBxCyrxx

Even setting everything else aside, the idea that a grifting lowlife like Parnas can get this close to the president and use a self-serving lie to get him to take an official action ought to alarm every American. How many other times has this happened? https://t.co/1WmvWekWfg

NEW: The "Take her out" recording reported today was made by Igor Fruman and shared with Lev Parnas "shortly after it was recorded," according to Parnas's attorney Joseph Bondy.

Don't get distracted by Trump's mob-speak about Yovanovich. He's not trying to murder her. Don't miss the actual point: that Parnas has tapes and Trump is caught in the headlights of a *massive* lie on which the pretense of his defense rests. Hammer the GOP Senators with it.

Well, I’m sure this tape of Trump ordering Parnas to take out the ambassador is going to be the last bombshell to come out in all this.
There’s nothing else out there that’s going to make Republicans regret their votes against new witnesses and new evidence.
Nothing at all.

Lev Parnas turned over an HOUR LONG RECORDING of a conversation with Trump.
1) Senate R’s now need to sweat what’s on it
2) You know there must be more tapes https://t.co/CWOwWLSvhH

The President "issued an official order forbidding every single person who works for the Executive Branch of our government from giving testimony to the House as part of an impeachment investigation." – @RepZoeLofgren

Strong case from @gtconway3d that the real missing witness at the Senate trial is Trump himself. There's no way he'd be able to answer these questions without ripping the lid off his bottomless corruption:https://t.co/OSNbNdP7MF

Elsewhere in Trumpworld…
.@NPRKelly gave @SecPompeo the chance to stand up for Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch.
Then she gave him another chance.
Then Pompeo ended the interview.
America’s diplomats still can’t understand why the Secretary won’t support them. https://t.co/fW9aO6tNl7
— House Foreign Affairs Committee (@HouseForeign) January 24, 2020
After the interview, @NPRKelly tells @arishapiro, @SecPompeo "shouted at [her] for about the same amount of time as the interview itself had lasted."
"He asked, 'Do you think Americans care about Ukraine?' He used the F-word in that sentence, and many others." https://t.co/krsUH29kL9 pic.twitter.com/bhNIW4pDNl

That @NPRKelly kept Pompeo on the record is an example of why It’s almost always a mistake to allow senior administration officials to go off the record. It lets them avoid accountability. https://t.co/64CM98V904

Lavrov must read this —SecState is ill-tempered, unconvincing, utterly without narrative — and laugh until he cries.
These are some of best in biz; SecState just insults them b/c there is no defense for his dereliction of duty and pursuit of conspiracy. https://t.co/NG1gdJWZgH

Where's the offer? The government says it's reaching out to Remainers. But where's the evidence?
Every decision goes in the opposite direction. They seek approval of the most hardline Leave opinion and discard even the most moderate of Remain demands. https://t.co/VG15URJ1IN
