Trump says he doesn't know why Giuliani spoke with OMB

Nunes Launches $435 Million Lawsuit Against CNN Over Ukraine Story

To illustrate extensive contact between Giuliani and the White House, the report, for instance, disclosed that Giuliani had three phone calls on April 24 with a number associated with the Office of Management and Budget, and eight calls with a White House number.

"It's a call log", Jarrett emphasized.

The House Intelligence Committee's impeachment report - which was made public Tuesday - says the committee's top Repubican, Rep. Devin Nunes of California, was linked to that effort. Nunes said that Bondy's claim was false.

"But", Nunes went on, "I haven't gone through all my phone records". "I don't really recall that name".

"Well we just don't know because we don't know the details. And we don't know the import of it", he said. "He's a guy that he vilifies every chance he gets, why is he on the phone with him?" He then proceeded to impugn the credibility of House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff-who, along with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, spearheaded the beginning of the impeachment proceedings against the president. Nunes is the Republican's ranking member of the committee, and actively defended President Donald Trump during the hearings with a number of current and former government officials active in the United States' foreign policy with Ukraine. "Does that mean that Devin Nunes was actually on the call or somebody else?"

In court documents posted in the Times, it was said that "Devin Nunes did not communicate with Parnas in December 2018".

According to the November 22 story, the attorney for Lev Parnas, Joseph A. Bondy, claimed that his client was willing to testify to Congress that Nunes was in Vienna previous year to discuss "digging up dirt" on Joe Biden with a former Ukranian prosecutor. Lutsenko is under investigation by Ukraine's National Anti-Corruption Bureau for allegations of abuse of power. Parnas worked with Giuliani and Shokin to push false allegations against Biden and the false narrative that Ukraine interfered in the 2016 election to help Hillary Clinton. It will feature Giuliani and others recounting debunked theories about supposed Ukrainian interference in the 2016 elections and investigations around Hunter Biden's work on the board of a Ukrainian gas company.

Nunes said in an interview with Fox News' Sean Hannity that "it's possible" he spoke to Parnas.
