“How long would they last in a fight with Russia ?” President Trump is heard asking about Ukraine in a 2018 recording of a dinner with donors including the indicted associates of his personal attorney Rudy Giuliani.

Trump on Thursday, Jan. 16, 2020, repeated denials that he is acquainted with Parnas, despite numerous photos that have emerged of the two men together.(House Judiciary Committee via AP) WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump inquired how long Ukraine would be able to resist Russian aggression without U.S. assistance during a 2018 meeting with donors that included the indicted associates of his personal attorney Rudy Giuliani. “How long would they last in a fight with Russia?” Trump is heard asking in the audio portion of a video recording, moments before he calls for the firing of U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch. She was removed a year later after a campaign to discredit her by Giuliani and others, an action that is part of Democrats’ case arguing for the removal of the president in his Senate impeachment trial. A video recording of the entire 80-minute dinner at the Trump Hotel in Washington was obtained Saturday by The Associated Press. Excerpts were first published Friday by ABC News. People can be seen in only some portions of the recording. The recording contradicts the president’s statements that he did not know the Giuliani associates Lev Parnas or Igor Fruman, key figures in the investigation who were indicted last year on campaign finance charges. The recording came to light as Democrats continued to press for witnesses and other evidence to be considered during the impeachment trial. On the recording, a voice that appears to be Parnas’ can be heard saying, “The biggest problem there, I think where we need to start is we got to get rid of the ambassador.” He later can be heard telling Trump: “She’s basically walking around telling everybody, ‘Wait, he’s gonna get impeached. Just wait.’” Trump responds: “Get rid of her! Get her out tomorrow. I don’t care. Get her out tomorrow. Take her out. OK? Do it.” Ukraine came up during the dinner in the context of a discussion of energy markets, with the voice appearing to be Parnas’ describing his involvement in the purchase of a Ukrainian energy company. The group then praises Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, to which the president says: “Pompeo’s going to be good. He’s doing a good job. Already he’s doing a good job.” At the beginning of the video, Trump is seen posing for photos before entering the blue-walled dining room. A voice that appears to be Fruman’s is heard saying that “it’s a great room” before a chuckle. “I couldn’t believe myself.” Also visible in the video are the president’s son Donald Trump Jr. and former counselor to the president Johnny DeStefano. Jack Nicklaus III, the grandson of the golf icon, and New York real estate developer Stanley Gale also attended the event for a pro-Trump group. Just a few minutes into the conversation, Trump can be heard railing against former President George W. Bush, China, the World Trade Organization and the European Union. “Bush, he gets us into the war, he gets us into the Middle East, that was a beauty,” Trump says. “We’re in the Middle East right now for $7 trillion.” He later says: “China rips us off for years and we owe them $2 trillion.” The president blames the WTO because it “allowed China to do what they’re doing.” “The WTO is worse,” than China, he declares. “China didn’t become great until the WTO.” Trump also seemed to question the U.S. involvement in the Korean War: “How we ever got involved in South Korea in the first place, tell me about it. How we ended up in a Korean War.” Trump provided the guests with an update ahead of his first meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, revealing that he’d settled on a date and location. One of the people in attendance sought to pitch a different location: Songdo, South Korea, which is 70% owned by Gale International and features a Nicklaus-designed golf course. “You know that Kim Jong Un is a great golfer,” Trump is heard telling the guests, who roar with laughter. Trump also discussed the border crisis and plans for a border wall with Mexio, insisting that he wants to build a concrete wall but had heard from law enforcement officials that it isn’t viable. “You do have to be able to see through the wall, I think,” Trump says. He says drug dealers would throw heavy bundles of drugs over the wall, which could kill Border Patrol agents. “They have a catapult and they throw it over the wall, and it lands on the other side of the wall and it can hit people. Can you imagine you get hit with 100 pounds?” the president says. “The whole thing is preposterous. I would’ve loved to have seen to see a concrete wall, but you just can’t do that.” Toward the end of the dinner, the discussion turns to the upcoming election and media. “Magazines are dead,” Trump says. “I think cable TV is OK. If we ever lost an election, cable TV is dead,” he says, the party goers laughing. “Can you imagine if they had a normal candidate? It’s all they talk about. If they had Hillary, crooked Hillary, their ratings would be one-fifth.” Trump says that he believes he would have had a harder time in 2016 if Bernie Sanders had been the Democratic nominee. Near the end of the dinner Parnas can be heard presenting what he says is a gift to Trump from “the head rabbi in Ukraine” and rabbis in Israel drawing a parallel between Trump and the messiah. “It’s like messiah is the person that’s come to save the whole world. So it’s like you’re the savior of the Ukraine.” “All Jew people of Ukraine, they are praying for you,” Fruman says, as Parnas tells Trump to show the gift to Jared Kushner, the president’s Jewish son-in-law and senior adviser, to explain its meaning. In the video, it appears Fruman is seated across the narrow part of the rectangular table and one seat over from the president. Trump also tells the assembled guests that it is “ridiculous” and “wrong” that he can’t hold political fundraisers inside the White House, saying it would save the government money compared to driving him the four blocks to his hotel.

SO.....? What a jerk AP is, Trump is heard? how about some real FACTS instead of-maybe he did or maybe he did not cooperchip1 Also Trump doesn’t know his foreign policy tutor, Lev Parnas? Riiight ... Is this the 'proof' ? AP AssociatedPress all propaganda Can't comment because am an African and our opinions are cropped out on the AP. We are not humans to them as demonstrated in the climate activist photo incident

Those dinners are not about knowing people. It’s about people giving money to politicians and thinking they are friends with people in high places. All those politicians pointing fingers do that 10X over. Trump and GOP have abandoned all love of country for personal gain. Assets of the Kremlin more than American Patriots. Unfortunately, most Americans are either asleep, to rich to care or supporters of Trump's bullshit. Which means, Trump will do whatever Putin wants...

A video staring at a light. Y’all peopl believe everything that’s fed to you. You can’t tell who’s really in that video. Obviously the GOP Senators will not be swayed, the Trump cult endures. However I hope Bloomberg does ad with Parnas tape and photos and names of R.Sens up for re-election.Have to fight dirty to eradicate the cult

Harris: Giuliani's involvement in Ukraine policy points to personal political benefit for Trump'This was about a political operative doing the work of the president as his personal lawyer and the work being for the political, personal benefit of the president as opposed to in the interest of national security,' Sen. Harris says of Rudy Giuliani. Kamala is a stealth operator ✨☑️🥰 KamalaHarris. You must bring this to the senate floor at once. BREAKING at CNN: Trump is saying he'll block new evidence via executive privilege; McConnell—who promised to abide by Trump's wishes—is now telling GOP senators to vote down witnesses or documents because it'd take The people know better. Whatever what was going on in Ukraine in 2016 and before with our political leaders involvement is a security risk for our Country and it’s people.

Maybe, Biden is the red herring? Could it be, this was and is about Trump working on behalf of Putin to suppress Ukraine? The circus is in town... Is that why he hold up Ukraine military aid to weaken them against Russia That was what it was paying back for Putin that helped Trump to WH America presidency. U Yankee better stand up in unity for your nation national security interest and sovereignty specially Republic watch

That demonstrates that he is in Russia’s pocket and doing their bidding. This is not the America I once knew So he fired a US Ambassador based on a conversation with Parnas; a guy whom he doesn’t know And he gave them arms rather than blankets... He also said way back then he wished Europe would do more.

Make no mistake the impeached Traitor POTUS is conspiring with Russia & its Russia-paid LevParnas.... ... He's clearly following the directive of Parnas in the LevParnasAudio to remove a US Ambassador.... ... This is proof of RussianCollusion. GOP DNC Putin don't want to pay ukraine for transferring natural gas to Europe through ukraine. So throwing under bus make alot of sense.

'Do you think Americans care about Ukraine,' is what Sec Pompeo said to NPRKelly just yesterday...so you can see what the trump admin's official policy toward Ukraine is 'But didn't Obama and Hillary do messed up stuff sometimes? Where's that investigation?' - Trump, probably.

The middleman: How Lev Parnas joined Team Trump and became Rudy Giuliani's fixer in UkraineLev Parnas was once so close to Rudy Giuliani, he named Giuliani his son's godfather. Now Parnas is cooperating with the Trump impeachment inquiry. Bought and PAID for!!! He needs to. The truth needs to come out. Trump has threatened the Republicans and others. “Head on a pike”. Intimidation. Awful

SenToddYoung SenatorBraun This will make for great evidence at a whole new impeachment trial after this one ends. Trump is about to be a two-time loser Legitimate question. America, can you please tell the world why your leader is so pro Russia? Ukraine needs to be protected Why are his teeth so yuge?!

But what about Clinton’s sex basement? Interesting the way Trump breaks bread and parties with all these people he doesn’t know. 🧐 Who does that? Greed and Ignorance all in one pic Yo fake news media...

Trump and Russia Are Colluding in Ukraine for Profit and Political GainWhen historians look back at the Ukraine scandal, they will probably see it not as a separate incident but a continuation of the Russia scandal. jonathanchait writes jonathanchait Excellent article, great to see this placed in the proper perspective. It shows patterns and intentions by Trump & his associates. SenateDems HouseDemocrats RepAdamSchiff RepJerryNadler SpeakerPelosi jonathanchait IQ=2.3 (1.8 without the blue tie) jonathanchait Which is exactly what it is.

Trump 4 more years Trump: “I don’t know them, I don’t know about them, I don’t know what they do,” Trump added. “I don’t know, maybe they were clients of Rudy’s. You’d have to ask Rudy.”Also Trump to Parnas: “The Ambassador of Ukraine? Take her out” Hope someone asks Jared Kushner & Ivanka Trump if they agree with the rabbis & think Donald Trump is the Messiah. We may be getting clues that radical fundamentalist Jews & Christians are a bigger threat to the world that radical fundamentalist Muslims.

'Take her out' — Trump reportedly caught on tape talking about ousting Ukraine ambassadorA copy of the recording has been obtained by federal prosecutors in the Southern District of New York, ABC reported. You know who else got taken out? Epsteindidntkillhimself So .? 🤔 Lordy, we hope there are tapes.

Shampeachment FakeNews So the one crucial thing from that is that the ambassador was telling Ukraine that Trump was going to be impeached so effectively ignore him. That is working against the US. If anyone in Ukraine confirms that she can have no complaints on being fired. Trump: “I don’t even know who this man is, other than I guess he attended fundraisers. So I take a picture with him,I take thousands and thousands of pictures with people all the time. Thousands during the course of a year.” Also Trump to Parnas: Let’s discuss Ukraine Ambassador.

Polident. Sickening Trump: 'I don't know him at all. Don't know what he's about. Don't know where he comes from. Know nothing about him. I can only tell you this thing is a big hoax.' Also Trump to Parnas: If you say so. TakeHerOut

Recording shows Trump called for firing of former Ukraine ambassador, report saysA recording of President Trump calling for former Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch's firing a year before she was recalled was reported Friday. Omg.. he fired her. The president can remove anyone he wants for any reason. Who cares. Yeah, what’s so wrong about firing her? NOTHING. Ok. And.... he is the President. And can LEGALLY do so..

Trump: 'Parnas, I don't know, other than he probably contributed to the campaign along with tens of thousands of other people. This weekend I was taking pictures with hundreds of people.” Also Trump: “Take her out. Can Ukraine last against Russia without us Parnas?” Trump: 'I don't know him, other than he's sort of like a groupie. He shows up at fundraisers. I don't know anything about him,' Also Trump: Take her out. Tell me about Ukraine.

Bombshell! You got him this time.😂😂😂🤡 Right before that someone was quoting an ignorant person who said we armed Ukraine so they can fight there instead of here. 'Who? Melania who? Oh. Well, I might have met her, but I meet a lot of people. I have pictures with a lot of people. I have more pictures with people than anybody. I probably have a picture with this Melania, but does that mean I know her? Well, of course it doesn't.'

I think they see the same dentist. Geez, 'how did we ever get into the Korean War?' Trump is an idiot. And he wants to hold political fundraisers in the White House? In a fight? Is it MMA? and, who was whispering sweet nothings into Donny's ear?

Report: Recording links Trump to Ukraine ambassador ousterPresident Donald Trump can be heard in a 2018 recording saying he wants to get rid of the U.S. ambassador to Ukraine . ABC News reported on the recording and said he was talking with a small group that included Lev Parnas, an associate of his lawyer. The actual audio has not been released. Good grief you people. So instead of firing her, which is his prerogative to do since she serves at his pleasure, would it have been better if he abandoned her to be slaughtered in the streets of Benghazi? Asking for John Christopher Stevens. I bet the tape recording sounds a little like Bill Clinton or Joe Biden.

The Ukraine would probably last longer without an 'ally' that keeps stabbing it in the back. Article 2! Trump sold them Javelin missiles which obliterated Russians tanks. Obama sent them blankets 😀 The most inept, incompetent President ever asking questions rightfully reserved for those who could expertly answer & advise him, of a group of rogue toady's whose biggest accomplishment as of then was surveilling our ambassador to Ukraine. Good grief have we lost our minds.

Obama sent blankets...Sedition by the media...Walkaway. Perhaps he's a fine man; perhaps he's not. I know nothing about him.... I don't know him. I don't believe I've ever spoken with him. I don't believe I've ever spoken to him.... But I don't know him. I had never had a conversation that I remember with him.' AlsoTrump:TakeHerOut

The snake on the right faked all this. when all else fails... Trump: Know nothing about him. [...] 'It doesn't matter what he says. He's trying to probably make a deal for himself. I don't even know who this man is, other than I guess he attended fundraisers, so I take a picture with him.... No, I don't know him. him.

Trump:”Well, I don't know him. I don't know Parnas, other than I guess I had pictures taken, which I do with thousands of people, including people today that I didn't meet. But -- just met them. I don't know him at all. Don't know what he's about. Don't know where he comes from.

yawn But he says he doesn’t know them. Look at the pictures. From his mouth to your ears. Listen learn and wake up. Vote in 2020 Lack of reporting on today's impeachment defense and shifting the story to the Parnas gossip can mean only one thing... the defense was hugely successful. Yeah, that's why he was selling the javillines. Seems like a reasonable question to ask.

Level of ignorance in the comments is astounding. Starting with the posting this. Yawn. Well, did anyone give an answer...and if they did , did they also advise POTUS to give them state of the art anti tank weapons...just asking for a friend. Corrupted Giuliani ! Those teeth. To think this Ukraine meddled in our election. Extremely vexing. They certainly bite more than they could chew. I'll bet that's why they're getting their ass kicked by Russia. For all we know, Russia could've been fighting for our honor.

So about this part: 'Trump also seemed to question the U.S. involvement in the Korean War: “How we ever got involved in South Korea in the first place, tell me about it. How we ended up in a Korean War.” How does a US PRESIDENT not know this?!? Even with the weapons the United States is supplying to these Nazis they wouldn't last long

I guess this is what happens when you have no respect for the truth It's amazing what you can turn into make believe audio and video these days. More fake news Even a kid knows that the question is a good one. Even if Trump is a dummy, he asked a good assessing question Give it a rest shills. Go find a black woman to crop out of a picture.

And Obama is caught on hot mic telling Russia after his re-election he will be able to bend over more so the could screw us better The video contains this gem: He (Trump) says drug dealers would throw heavy bundles of drugs over the wall, which could kill Border Patrol agents. “They have a catapult and they throw it over the wall, and it lands on the other side of the wall and it can hit people.'

And..... You wallow with dogs you get fleas and he's full of them.

Well ,yeah. Also, US has spent $5,000,000,000 of our tax money on Ukraine by the time Obama and Biden toppled the government that was 'too pro Russia,' which ESCALATED everything.
