How did they get the physical devices? Was Levin still hanging out in this country?

Bondy has argued that Parnas is a victim of selective prosecution by the Trump DOJ, and named a list of people who he believed would appear in evidence gathered from the warrants.

Those include, beyond Giuliani and Victoria Toensing, “the former President, former Attorney General William P. Barr, high-level members of the Justice Department, Presidential impeachment attorneys Jay Sekulow, Jane Raskin and others, Senator Lindsey Graham, Congressman Devin Nunes and others.”

My schaden is freuding.

I’d like to see a few more accidents when it comes to Rudy. Falling Piano, Meteor Strike, Hair Dye Overdose, etc.

Time for a refresher course on Redactions for Dummies.

Unless this was an intentional mistake. Then - especially, as @ncsteve said - prepare for the reaming.

That’s one hell of a list, they better hope they have their stories straight.

Most people lose their job from such an amateur mistake. Others just slouch toward the career-ender role as either Giuliani’s or Parnas’ attorney.

I know this is regarding a different criminal matter, but is an indication of why no Republican currently in office should be allowed to participate in any way, shape, or form with any investigation of 1/6. We can’t know who among them was involved nor the extent of that involvement at this time.

They finally realize that they should use the black highlighter, not the yellow one.

I had to wonder if someone is taking a dive on the case.

Bondy has argued that Parnas is a victim of selective prosecution by the Trump DOJ, and named a list of people who he believed would appear in evidence gathered from the warrants. Bondy added that the evidence would likely come in the form of “e-mail, text, and encrypted communications.”

So it seems like Parnas kept his receipts. That’s the difference between committed lackeys (Gates to Manafort) and self-interested “businessmen” (Parnas to Giuliani). Gates used and deleted encrypted messaging to help obscure what they were doing, but Parnas likely kept them in his back pocket in case things went awry. He understood the cost of doing business and what insurance could buy him.

All these self-deleting messages can easily be preserved by anyone with a camera.
