And I for one am ready and willing to see that evidence.

Lev Parnas, an indicted associate of President Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani, asked a federal court for permission to turn over more evidence to House Democrats after already providing some evidence, including a 2018 recording of Trump discussing the dismissal of then-U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch.
In a letter dated Friday, Parnas’s attorney Joseph Bondy asked U.S. District Judge Paul Oetken to waive attorney-client privilege rules to allow Parnas to provide more information to the House Intelligence Committee. Parnas is indicted on breaching campaign finance laws but has yet to be convicted.
Parnas has already turned over information twice under congressional subpoena, though his co-defendant and associate Igor Fruman’s defense has advocated against it and called Parnas’s public approach to the case “unacceptable.”
Oetken granted Parnas permission to turn over some of the evidence prosecutors had obtained to House impeachment investigators earlier this month, which included texts, documents and a video of Trump dismissing Yovanovitch after Parnas suggested she wanted the president impeached.
The materials are pursuant to a subpoena the House Intelligence Committee sent Parnas in October as it began its investigation into Trump.
My understanding is that this is being challenged by the attorney for Igor Fruman who claims that the evidence also includes communications with his client that could undermine their case.
I imagine that at least a portion of this evidence will indeed find its way to Congress, which means that Mitch McConnell may soon have yet another potentially explosive audo recording, tape, or text that will once again undermine his attempts to exonerate Donald Trump or if too late for that will embarrass the Senate Republicans if they let Trump off and evidence comes out proving that they failed in their duty to protect the country.
Either way if I were Mitch McConnell this would make me very, very nervous.
