White House Fires Back at Parnas' Allegations
White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham pounced after Russian-born businessman and former Rudy Giuliani associate Lev Parnas accused President Trump of being aware of an alleged scheme to unlawfully pressure Ukraine to investigate the Bidens.

Parnas detailed the alleged campaign to MSNBC's Rachel Maddow.

Per The Hill:

In response, press secretary Stephanie Grisham attacked Parnas's credibility, accused him of seeking attention on anti-Trump media outlets and pointed to Trump's denials that he knows the businessman despite the two appearing in photos together.

"This is a man who's under indictment and who's actually out on bail," Grisham said Thursday morning on Fox News. "This is a man who owns a company called Fraud Inc., so I think that's something that people should be thinking about. We're not too concerned about it."

"It's unfortunate that he's now making a media tour with a lot of the outlets that are, you know, against the president," she added. "I think that shows exactly what he's doing."


Parnas, who was indicted in October on charges of violating campaign finance laws, appeared late Wednesday on Rachel Maddow's show on MSNBC, where he alleged Trump "knew exactly what was going on" in Ukraine. He further claimed that Vice President Pence and Attorney General William Barr were likely aware of the scheme.
