Former Giuliani associate chosen as witness for Hunter Biden hearing

by | Mar 19, 2024

House Democrats are extending an invitation to Lev Parnas, a former associate of Rudy Giuliani, to testify as their witness at the Republican-led House Oversight Committee's hearing on Hunter Biden scheduled for Wednesday.

The top democrat on the panel, Jamie Raskin, asserts that Lev Parnas has the potential to debunk the claims central to the impeachment investigation.

Likely the main reason he was chosen, Parnas has emerged as a vocal critic of the GOP's Hunter Biden investigation, which mirrors many of the same allegations pursued by Giuliani.

In a letter addressed to Oversight Chair James Comer (R-Ky.) last year, Parnas urged him to “abandon” what he referred to as a “wild goose chase.”

The hearing is set for Wednesday morning, featuring former associates of Hunter Biden, Tony Bobulinski and Jason Galanis, as scheduled witnesses.

Hunter Biden declined an invitation to testify, with his attorney condemning the hearing as a “carnival sideshow” in a letter to the panel.

Republicans have made arrangements to enable Galanis, who is currently incarcerated in Alabama on fraud charges, to testify remotely from prison.
