Rudy Giuliani's Ukraine connection is reportedly willing to comply with House impeachment investigators

Someone's having second thoughts.

Lev Parnas, a Ukrainian-American businessman who became mixed up in President Trump's impeachment inquiry, is reversing course and is now prepared to comply with congressional impeachment investigators' requests for records and testimony, Reuters reports.

Parnas is best known for allegedly helping Trump's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani dig up dirt on former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden, who once served on the board of a gas company in Ukraine that was being investigated for corruption. Parnas has said himself that he helped connect Giuliani to Ukrainian officials during Giuliani's Biden investigation.

Parnas first said he wouldn't cooperate with the House inquiry, but his lawyer, Joseph Bondy, told Reuters on Monday that "we will honor and not avoid the committee's requests to the extent they are legally proper."

Parnas was recently indicted on charges of using a shell company to donate money to a pro-Trump election committee. Read more at Reuters.
