    New text messages between Parnas and aide put Devin Nunes on the hot seat

    New documents show a Nunes aide repeatedly in contact with Parnas, leading to even more questions about what Nunes knew and when.

    H/T: Washington Post

    Here comes another hit on Nunes. WaPo is reporting that text messages between Lev Parnas, and Derek Harvey, an aide to Devin Nunes, show that Nunes was aware of the “extortion plot” at the center of the Trump impeachment efforts and was seeking to use the information from Parnas.

    Not only does the article accept as fact that Trump was attempting to extort Ukraine (neither article of impeachment addresses this), it also implies that somehow it's illegal for Nunes to conduct his own investigation into US-Ukrainian corruption.

    Also in the newly released documents are references to possible Clinton Foundation collusion with Ukraine involving kickbacks from an increase in US aid money. One text message from Derek Harvey to Lev Parnas states:

    Sources at State say that there was this push to spend US donor aid in Ukraine. It's appears the US foreign aid to Ukraine nearly doubled from FY 15 to FY 16 (around $280mm to over $500 million). Their hunch was that the $ would get grafted by URK officials, in exchange for $ then given to the Clinton Foundation...

    If the increase in aid is correct, then there's a thread to pull; look at [temporary duty] records to Kiev; cables from DC to post, et al; audit donor aid to UKR.

    Nothing to see here folks.

    Read the documents below.
