WaPo’s Hudson: Lev Parnas Does Not Have a Sterling Reputation
HUDSON: “His point person for external communications, Katie Martin, has not been responding to questions about this process, so it has left a lot of people wondering. Especially as the Ukrainian government said that they would launch an investigation into any illicit surveillance that was happening on Ukrainian soil. So it was a significant event that he said that he is going to investigate it, look into it. It’s clear that he has doubts about the veracity of these things, and I think there is some legitimacy to some of the skepticism. As you know, Lev Parnas does not have a sterling reputation, neither does the pro-Trump congressional candidate who is the associate in this case. So there is a lot of questions about what type of surveillance this was, and the State Department is now saying they’ll look into it, but they’re coming from a place of skepticism right now."
