The liberal news media leaped for joy last week when they believed they had the “smoking gun” evidence against Donald Trump – a note from Rudy Giuliani that mentioned a meeting with “Mr. Z”.

In one section of the letter, Schiff claims that Parnas “continued to try to arrange a meeting with President Zelensky,” citing a specific text message exchange where Parnas tells Giuliani: “trying to get us mr Z.” The remainder of the exchange — which was attached to Schiff’s letter — was redacted.
