This undated image released by the House Judiciary Committee from documents provided by Lev Parnas to the committee in the impeachment probe against President Donald Trump, shows a photo of Lev Parnas with Trump in Florida. Parnas, a close associate of Trump's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani is claiming Trump was directly involved in the effort to pressure Ukraine to investigate Democratic rival Joe Biden. 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) NEW YORK (AP) — President Donald Trump can be heard in a taped 2018 conversation saying he wants to get rid of the U.S. ambassador to Ukraine, whose removal a year later emerged as an issue in Trump’s impeachment. The president was talking with a small group that included Lev Parnas, an associate of his personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani, according to a report Friday about the audio recording. Trump demanded the removal of Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch at an April 2018 dinner at his hotel in Washington, according to ABC News, which reported on the recording. The recording appears to contradict the president’s statements that he did not know Parnas, a key figure in the investigation. ABC said a speaker who appears to be Trump says on the recording, “Get rid of her! Get her out tomorrow. I don’t care. Get her out tomorrow. Take her out. OK? Do it.” Parnas and associate Igor Fruman worked with Giuliani on a push to get Ukraine to announce it would investigate former Vice President Joe Biden. On the recording, the two tell Trump that the U.S. ambassador has been insulting him, which leads directly to the apparent remarks by the president. The White House denied any suggestion of presidential wrongdoing. “Every president in our history has had the right to place people who support his agenda and his policies within his administration,” White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham said. Yovanovitch, who was viewed as an obstacle to probes into Biden and his son, Hunter, was not recalled from her position until the following April. She said the decision was based on “unfounded and false claims by people with clearly questionable motives” that she was disloyal to Trump. Parnas appears to say on the recording: “The biggest problem there, I think where we need to start is we gotta get rid of the ambassador. She’s still left over from the Clinton administration.” He later can be heard telling Trump. “She’s basically walking around telling everybody ’Wait, he’s gonna get impeached, just wait.” House investigators have been working to document an almost year-long effort on the part of Parnas and Giuliani to have Yovanovitch removed from her post. Parnas and Fruman were recently indicted by the Southern District of New York on charges including conspiracy to commit campaign finance fraud. Both have pleaded not guilty. Democrats seized on the recording as further evidence of Trump’s involvement. “If this is additional evidence of his involvement in that effort to smear her, it would certainly corroborate much of what we’ve heard, but I’m not in a position yet to analyze that, not having looked at it,” said Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., one of the House impeachment managers. Parnas has done a series of interviews in recent days in which he has asserted that Trump was aware of the plan to remove Yovanovitch. Trump has distanced himself from Parnas, and the president’s supporters have questioned his credibility and motives. “I don’t know Parnas other than I guess I had pictures taken, which I do with thousands of people,” Trump said last week. “But I just met him. 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.” The Associated Press has not reviewed the recording. A request to Parnas and his lawyer for comment was not immediately answered. The president is being tried in the Senate after the House impeached him last month, accusing him of abusing his office by asking Ukraine to probe the Bidens while withholding military aid from a U.S. ally at war with Russia. The second article of impeachment accuses Trump of obstructing Congress by refusing to turn over documents or allow officials to testify in the House probe. Republicans have defended Trump’s actions as appropriate and are casting the process as a politically motivated effort to weaken him in his reelection campaign. Republicans hold a 53-47 majority in the Senate, and acquittal is considered likely. ___ Follow Lemire on Twitter at http://twitter.com/@JonLemire AP NEWS Read more: The Associated Press

He should have gotten rid of her. She worked directly against him when she campaigned for Hilary. The press are such liars! Tweety Bird, if Lev was any closer ro you he'd be in your lap! Oh I forgot, you do not know him. Any person with half a brain knows you do or the secret service would not have allowed your cozy photo op. geniusnot

THE PATHOLOGICAL LIAR SPEAKS TO PARMAS THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT I HEAR FROM A PATHOLOGICAL LIAR trump He is allowed to fire her. Sounds like Trump wanted to paint her house. And Oh wow! Another ho hum Yeah so ? He can do that and ? He can fire an ambassador at anytime. But you guys prefer killing babies. Ok. And?

So what? He is allowed to get rid of ambassadors if he wants to.

Recording Apparently Captures Trump Saying He Wanted Marie Yovanovitch Fired: ReportABC News reported a recording of a 2018 dinner appears to capture the president asking associates to 'take her out.' This mafia wannabe m0r0n has dragged the presidency to the depth of his pigsty. you mean the completely legal and ethical act of firing an ambassador? Priceless!

ienoesis He should fire all US attorneys appt. by Obama and all ambassadors appt by Obama! And then get rid of Christopher Wray! Listening to a guy Trump doesn't know...hummm! He never met the guy 🙄 he has the right to fire ambassadors ... Obama fired all of them when he became president. Didn’t he just say again today he doesn’t know Parnas. This was at a private townhouse at trump tower at a small dinner party. Trump lies about EVeRYTHING. I bet he lied about being a Christian too :) removehimnow impotus

So what. He’s allowed to get rid of ambassadors. He’s allowed to pick & choose who works for his administration just like every other president. We had Obama on tape telling a Russian government official he has more leverage after his Presidency but the press didn’t share that. Article 2! you are a disgrace

WOW ap working OT on this one. This is earth shattering and will bring down the orange man......LOL - losers. Could you imagine if you had to work under a microscope like our president does. This clown always has his stupid thumb up in pictures when you're in good graces with him... but miraculously claims no knowledge of it or that person upon their falling out. Wtf wants this shitbag as a friend or associate?

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..

So gross. 💤💤💤💤💤💤 We need a wittiness Wait, didn’t she work for him? Lordy, there are tapes... U.S. ambassadors 'serve at the pleasure' of the President. The President can (get rid of the U.S. ambassador to Ukraine) for any reason or NO reason. Why is ABC ABCPolitics making this seem nefarious? &... she was denying visas to Ukrainians who wanted to blow the whistle on the corruption which consisted of American politicians & their families benefiting off their corrupt companies. This impeachment is to cover up all ppl involved. JoeBiden RepDMP SpeakerPelosi

Ok then play us the tape and we will decide for ourselves if you aren’t willing to play the tape and 100% verify it’s trump than shut up Who the heck can record the POTUS that way? why? is that legal? Kind of weird!

Recording Apparently Captures Trump Saying He Wanted Marie Yovanovitch Fired: ReportABC News reported a recording of a 2018 dinner appears to capture the president asking associates to 'take her out.' Who cares? He can fire who he wants. He’s like a fuckin mon boss Godfather Trump.

Quando o socialismo se apossar da América, a imprensa será a primeira vítima. Um… ever heard “Serve at the pleasure of the President “? He didn’t even fire her for a year & a half. Non-news. RightMatters IMPOTUS ImpeachedForLife He is the boss! He can fire anyone he wishes. Now, how many attended the Right to Life March?

I bet the tape recording sounds a little like Bill Clinton or Joe Biden. 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. The actual audio has not been released. Good grief you people.

Recording of Trump calling for Yovanovitch’s ouster appears to corroborate Parnas’s accountThe audio file reviewed by ABC News matches a description by Lev Parnas , a former associate of Rudolph W. Giuliani. Who? A Ukrainian ambassador. Why should I give two bleeps if my president wants to fire someone that works for him

Democrats say Trump 'worked hard' on Ukraine cover-up, shows no remorseTrump administration hasn't shown that it really 'cares' about corruption in Ukraine , Rep. Jason Crow said at the president's impeachment trial Why would they “really ‘care’ about corruption in Ukraine”? Ukraine is an entire country, Reuters. Caring about American political corruption at the highest level REALLY IS something to CARE about. DemocratsAreCorrupt It is laughable that Donald Trump cared even a little bit about corruption in Ukraine and that (not that it happens to be his chief political rival) is the reason he sought an announcement on a Biden investigation. If you believe that, I have some swamp land to sell you

Trump captured on tape demanding firing of ambassador to Ukraine, attorney says'That to me is the most chilling. ... This was a threat against an American citizen, a threat against an esteemed ambassador.' -Sen. amyklobuchar on new audio of Trump reportedly saying he wanted then-U.S. ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch fired. amyklobuchar So what ? His the boss for crying out loud. amyklobuchar amyklobuchar She is still alive, and wasn't fired till 18 months after the recording. Making a mountain out of a mole hill and exaggerating his words.
