Lev Parnas torched his bridges Wednesday. He told The New York Times he's eager to cooperate with federal prosecutors investigating his former associate Rudy Giuliani, and on MSNBC he implicated President Trump, Vice President Mike Pence, Attorney General William Barr, and Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) in the Giuliani-led effort to dig up dirt on Joe Biden in Ukraine. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and former Energy Secretary Rick Perry are apparently on the menu in the upcoming second part of Parnas' interview with MSNBC's Rachel Maddow.

But Parnas also released a trove of documents through the House Intelligence Committee, and Donald Trump Jr. made a small appearance in a text message exchange between Parnas and Joseph Ahearn, a GOP fundraiser then affiliated with the pro-Trump super PAC America First Action.
