    This Rachel Maddow interview with Parnas is like listening to the Nixon tapes. And just like the Nixon tapes, it's worse than we ever imagined.

    So Hyde was drunk while reporting Lev the movements of Yovanovitch…for a WEEK! I admit that I called an ex being drunk ONE NIGHT! Yet this guy is either a PARTY ANIMAL EXTRAORDINAIRE or just a mere stalker! Time for the FBI to bring some beers to this guy's house and let's get the PARTY STARTED!

    This must be inaccurate. They were tracking that poor woman, probably at the behest of Trump in order to murder her or intimidate her. Who believes Trump had Epstein whacked? 🙋🏻‍♀️

    So, he's trying to cover hyde? (No pun intended)….he's covering for the other guy, robert hyde? …and himself [parnas]? There were "threats and tracking" done against Ms. Yovanovitch?! Now, the question is, also: ❔Who all were going to be involved in such criminal activity towards Ms. Yovanovitch? Because there's some covering up being done by parnas, who thinks that an occasional giggle, shrug and denial, concludes a matter about robert hyde. If anything, robert hyde's indulgence of frequent alcohol beverages, could've made him follow-through with his own threats. Their lying and denying, is no break from the norm.

    EDIT: corrected the spelling of Yovanovitch's name.

    It doesn't matter that Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch wasn't in danger. This wannabe co-conspirator Mr. Hyde wanted people to believe that she was. If that doesn't warrant a lengthy prison term then I don't know what would..By the way in the book Mr. Hyde was also always drunk. Coincidence. I think not..

    Parnas is reaching with this 'drunk all the time business', trying to distance himself as far as he can from the situation with Hyde. I'm pretty sure he knew all too well what was going on and is using a man's alleged tendencies to drink as a cover up.

    He contradicted himself. He said the texts were concerning enough for him to make phone calls inquiring about Hyde. Then he says he didn’t believe the content of the texts. Still, he cut all contact with Hyde. Why would you be concerned if you believed the texts were the imaginary ramblings of a drunkard?

    Now GOP Senators really do have a choice, stay on board with Trumpy and be stained for ALL time as traitors to the country and constitution or be patriots and defend the country and constitution, possibly retain some respect.
    Even if GOP Senators dismiss or find Trump not guilty the stench of corruption is not going to go away and the US will be regarded by the rest of the world as toxic.
