Here’s The Full Audio Of Lev Parnas Meeting With Trump: ‘Get Rid Of Her’

Pres. Donald Trump claims he doesn’t even know Lev Parnas. However, on Saturday, The Daily Beast obtained and published the recording of one of their meetings. The Daily Beast recording corroborates reporting that ABC News obtained part of the recording of the meeting.

The meeting lasted for nearly an hour and a half and Trump specifically said that Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch had to be fired.

“Get rid of her! Get her out tomorrow. I don’t care. Get her out tomorrow. Take her out. Okay? Do it,” Trump is heard saying about Yovanovitch.

Yovanovitch had been targeted by a smear campaign to force her out of Ukraine.

The recording also seems to show Parnas trying to get Trump to speak out against Yovanovitch, describing her as “a leftover from the [Bill] Clinton administration.”

“She’s basically walking around telling everybody ‘Wait, he’s gonna get impeached, just wait,’” Parnas tells Trump.

This looks like a deliberate attempt on the part of Parnas to goad Trump, who is known to be particularly sensitive about the Clintons.

In the same recording, you can hear Trump boasting about his poll numbers, claiming that they’re higher than ever.

“[…] the highest level they’ve ever been … quite a bit higher than Election Day, that was an amazing day,” prompting applause from the people in the meeting. 

Reports suggest that Parnas has turned over the recording to Democrats in Congress as part of the evidence in the Trump impeachment that’s ongoing.

It was clever of Parnas to record this meeting. Everyone knows that Trump will eventually throw them under the bus.
