Trump impeachment hearings
The Democrats' House Intelligence Committee impeachment report is out and a familiar face makes an appearance among its contents.
In one of the report's only examples of brand new information, call logs showed Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.), the top ranking Republican on the committee, made contact with President Trump's personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, and his now-indicted associate, Lev Parnas back in April. Those calls occurred amid Giuliani's quest to dig up dirt on Trump's domestic political rivals in Ukraine, specifically around the time he led a smear campaign against former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch.
Nunes has decried the impeachment proceedings as a hoax, but this — along with the fact Parnas' lawyer said his client helped put Nunes in touch with Ukrainian officials while the congressman was investigating the origins of the Mueller report — indicates there might be something at stake for him, as well.
