The lawyer for Lev Parnas, a Rudy Giuliani associate, claims there is a recording of President Trump saying former Ukraine Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch should be fired, the Daily Beast reports.

The latest: Parnas said on Friday that he has turned the recording over to the House Intelligence Committee, per the New York Times — as Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) led House Democrats in laying out the case for impeaching Trump before the Senate.

Rudy Giuliani went on Fox News' "The Ingraham Angle" on Monday and tried to distance himself from close associate Lev Parnas.

Why it matters: Parnas in recent interviews has claimed that he helped carry out a campaign to pressure Ukraine to announce an investigation into the Bidens with Trump's consent and awareness.
