The bottomless pit that is the Ukraine scandal continues to grow. According to a report from ABC News on Sunday, the House Intelligence Committee is now in possession of audio and video recordings as well as photographs that include both President Donald Trump and Rudy Giuliani. The materials were handed over as part of a congressional subpoena by Giuliani associate Lev Parnas.
ABC News reported it is unknown what is said on the recordings, and the attorney for Parnas, Joseph A. Bondy, would not comment on the matter. Instead, Bondy directed ABC News to an earlier statement from Sunday that read in part, “Mr. Parnas has vociferously and publicly asserted his wish to comply with his previously issued subpoena and to provide the House Intelligence Committee with truthful and important information that is in furtherance of justice, not to obstruct it.”

The statement continued, “His evidence and potential testimony is non-partisan, and not intended to be part of a battle between the left and the right, but rather an aid in the determination by our government of what is in the best interests of our nation.”
ABC News also reported that some of the information the House Intel Committee wants is in possession of the Southern District of New York which has not yet been turned over. Giuliani is also under investigation by the Southern District of New York over his alleged involvement in a plot to remove then-ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch, who testified to the impeachment inquiry last week.
