Giuliani associate Lev Parnas asks Attorney General Barr to recuse himself from his case
In his letter to Barr, Parnas’ attorney cites the president’s call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy in July, in which Trump mentioned Barr as a point person for a possible investigation. It also noted a whistleblower’s complaint in August, along with calls for recusal by Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee and the New York City Bar Association.
