Attorney Victoria Toensing slammed Rudy Giuliani associate Lev Parnas as a liar over comments aimed at implicating President Trump.

Toensing called out the Soviet-born businessman in a tweet Thursday morning, clapping back at his claim that she and her husband and legal partner Jo DiGenova spoke with Attorney General William Barr about the topic of Ukraine corruption.

Referring to the MSNBC interview Parnas had with Rachel Maddow, Toensing declared he had “absolutely lied” about happenings in Ukraine that purport to show that Trump, Barr and others knew exactly what was going on.

Parnas claimed a meeting was requested by Giuliani with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and that Toensing would participate. Though the president’s personal lawyer told the Daily Beast this week that the letter “confirms that my role throughout was as a defense lawyer for the President seeking exculpatory evidence,” a spokesperson for Toensing’s law firm said they knew nothing of the letter or Giuliani’s alleged outreach to the Ukraine president.

“I wouldn’t do anything without the consent of Rudy Giuliani or the president,” Parnas told Maddow.

He also claimed that Barr “had to have known everything” about the Ukraine scheme plan, including the “quid pro quo” Trump is accused of in his request for an investigation of former Vice President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter.

In another related part of the Ukraine discussion, Parnas spoke of Connecticut Republican congressional candidate Robert F. Hyde who was allegedly tracking former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch.

“He was either drunk or trying to make himself bigger than he really was,” Parnas said, dismissing Hyde’s claims.

Toensing’s rebuke of the indicted businessman sparked many reactions on Twitter where users told her to effectively just ignore him.
