The Daily Beast reports:
Moments after Lev Parnas told MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow that the president “knew exactly what was going on” with Ukraine, Fox News anchor Martha MacCallum asked Devin Nunes about phone records that show he spoke to Parnas, noting he previously said he couldn’t “recall” having a phone conversation with the Giuliani henchman.
Claiming that the information was “brand new” at the time and he just didn’t “recognize the name Parnas,” the pro-Trump congressman added that he was able to recall “where he was at the time” and now “remembered that call, which was very odd and random.”
So now Devin Nunes is admitting he talked to Lev Parnas… He claims when he was asked a few months back, he didn’t recognize the name Parnas pic.twitter.com/3dgoGfsKFd

Devin Nunes who said he was trying to confirm whether or not he communicated with Lev Parnas when him and Lev Parnas communicated now confirms he has been caught. This is going to be the worst year of Devin’s miserable life. pic.twitter.com/tupG0D1pYH

Devin Nunes and a top aide “were involved in getting this stuff on Biden,” Lev Parnas says to Maddow. “He knows who I am.”
