Nunes aide Derek Harvey participated in the meetings, the lawyer said, which were arranged to help Nunes’ investigative work. MacMahon didn’t specify what those investigations entailed.

Nunes is the top Republican on the House committee handling the impeachment hearings—hearings where Parnas’s name has repeatedly come up.

Giuliani associate willing to testify Nunes met with ex-Ukrainian official, attorney says

  Giuliani associate willing to testify Nunes met with ex-Ukrainian official, attorney says Nunes has been one of the president's most ardent supporters as he faces impeachment proceedings. NBC News reached out to Nunes and to House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-California, but neither responded immediately.In a statement to Breitbart News on Friday night, Nunes called the CNN and Daily Beast reports "demonstrably false and scandalous."Parnas was indicted last month for allegedly making illegal campaign contributions. He pleaded not guilty while expressing willingness to cooperate with impeachment investigators.

Devin Nunes in 2018, Parnas ' lawyer Ed MacMahon told The Daily Beast. Nunes aide Derek Harvey participated in the meetings, the lawyer said, which were arranged to help Nunes ' investigative work. MacMahon didn't specify what those investigations entailed.

Congressional records show Nunes traveled to Europe from Nov. 30 to Dec. 3, 2018. Three of his aides—Harvey, Scott Glabe, and George Pappas—traveled with him, per the records. U.S. government funds paid for the group’s four-day trip, which cost just over $63,000.

The travel came as Nunes, in his role on the House Intelligence Committee, was working to investigate the origins of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into Russian election meddling.

Parnas’ assistance to Nunes’ team has not been previously reported. A spokesperson for Nunes did not respond to requests for comment.

Nunes has been helming the GOP’s involvement in the impeachment inquiry. He has spent much of his time criticizing the probe and the media’s coverage of it. “In their mania to attack the President, no conspiracy theory is too outlandish for the Democrats,” he said on Wednesday morning before Ambassador Gordon Sondland’s testimony. Later in the day, Nunes accused Democrats of harboring “Watergate fantasies.”

Top Dem says ethics investigation into Devin Nunes likely

  Top Dem says ethics investigation into Devin Nunes likely It follows a report that an associate of Rudy Giuliani has information on meetings the Republican allegedly had with the former Ukrainian prosecutor general.“Quite likely, without question,” House Armed Services Committee chairman Rep. Adam Smith (D-Wash) said when asked by MSNBC’s Joy Reid whether Nunes (R-Calif.), the House Intelligence Committee’s top Republican and a longtime Trump ally, could be investigated.

Rep . Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) traveled to Europe with three aides from Nov. 3, 2018, on a ,000 taxpayer-funded investigative trip, and Lev Parnas , an associate of Rudy Giuliani arrested Nunes was visiting Europe as part of his investigation into the origins of former Special Counsel Robert

His name is Lev Parnas and according to reporting from The Daily Beast, Parnas helped arrange meetings for Rep . Nunes ’s investigative work—likely into the Mueller probe—in Europe in 2018. Also, I desperately need everyone reading this to know that Parnas ’s lawyer is named Ed MacMahon.

“I guess they fantasize about this at night,” he said.

Giuliani has been a subject of much discussion at the impeachment hearings. To a lesser extent, so have Parnas and his associate, Igor Fruman, who worked with Giuliani as he attempted to find damaging information on Joe and Hunter Biden from Ukrainian sources.

Nunes has been at the center of the broader story about foreign influence in President Donald Trump’s Washington. When Congressional investigators began probing Russian interference in the 2016 campaign, Nunes made a late-night visit to the White House and announced the next day he’d found evidence of egregious wrongdoing by Intelligence Community officials. The move appeared to be an effort to corroborate a presidential tweet claiming that Obama wiretapped Trump tower. Nunes then stepped back from the committee’s work scrutinizing Russian efforts. Instead, he ran a parallel probe looking at the origins of Mueller’s Russia probe. The undertaking made him a hero to the president and Sean Hannity, and a bête noire of Democrats and Intelligence Community officials. That work was still underway when he traveled to Europe in 2018.

Himes: Nunes pushed "fantastical conspiracy theories" at hearings

  Himes: Nunes pushed The No. 2 Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee said Nunes is promoting conspiracy theories to defend President Trump and cast doubt on Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election."If you watched Devin Nunes for five minutes in these hearings, you know that he has given over to the, utterly, to the defense of the president and more importantly, to the propagation of fantastical conspiracy theories," Himes said on "Face the Nation" Sunday.

Last month, federal prosecutors in the Southern District of New York charged Parnas and Fruman with illegally moving money from foreign donors to American political campaigns. Both men maintain their innocence.

“Contrary to many aspersions in the press to date, Lev Parnas is a proud United States citizen, who has lived here since he was four years old,” said Joseph Bondy, an attorney on his legal team.

“Raised in Brooklyn, and now living in Florida, Mr. Parnas is happily married with six children—five living at home—and a zeal for America and its democratic values. At all times throughout, he has believed that what he was doing was furtherance of the President’s and thus our national interests. President Trump’s recent and regrettable disavowal of Mr. Parnas has caused him to rethink his involvement and the true reasons for his having been recruited to participate in the President’s activities. Mr. Parnas is prepared to testify completely and accurately about his involvement in the President and Rudy Giuliani’s quid pro quo demands of Ukraine.”

Nunes accuses CNN of 'criminal activity' for reporting he tried to get Biden dirt from ex-Ukrainian prosecutor

  Nunes accuses CNN of 'criminal activity' for reporting he tried to get Biden dirt from ex-Ukrainian prosecutor Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo put Rep. Devin Nunes in the hot seat amid reports that he met with former Ukrainian prosecutor Victor Shokin in an effort to dig up dirt on former Vice President Joe Biden. CNN reported on Friday that Rudy Giuliani associate Lev Parnas is willing to tell Congress that Nunes met with Shokin in Vienna last year, hoping to obtain political dirt on Biden. Nunes, however, responded to the allegation by claiming the report was false and vowing to sue the network.

When Nunes traveled to Europe in 2018, Giuliani—who is Trump’s personal attorney—was working to oust Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch from her post in Kyiv. The Justice Department indictment of Parnas and Fruman alleges they illegally moved money into American elections to “advance the political interests of... a Ukrainian government official who sought the dismissal of the U.S. ambassador to the Ukraine.”

Allegations against Yovanovitch blew up in American conservative media, including at The Hill and on Sean Hannity’s Fox News show. Donald Trump Jr. even joined the chorus of voices calling for Yovanovitch to be recalled. And on May 20, she was.

Numerous U.S. officials, however, have testified to the impeachment inquiry that the claims against her were baseless. Yovanovitch herself testified to investigators last week. As with all the other impeachment hearings, Nunes led Republicans’ questioning of her.
