New texts turned over by Lev Parnas reveal creepy spying on Yovanovitch - 2020-01-14
Lev Parnas' lawyer delivered a bunch of text messages and handwritten notes to Congress, this coming after a prolonged fight over whether they could be disclosed at all — Republicans had been fighting it.
After a quick review, most of it appears to fill in gaps of what was already known, though I can't immediately say whether any of that is consequential.
But one lengthy exchange, between Parnas and Robert F Hyde, a Congressional candidate from Connecticut and USMC veteran, is seriously disturbing. The entire context isn't 100 percent clear, but it appears that around March 2019 Hyde was conducting surveillance on US Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch, advising Parnas of her movements.
