By now, you may be aware that Democrats coincidentally on the eve of the impeachment trial claiming they have new evidence and pointing to claims by Lev Parnas made on Wednesday night on Rachel Maddow’s show.

Of course, as we reported earlier, those claims already seem to be falling apart and have been called into question from multiple sources.

But that isn’t stopping Democrats, like former Obama CIA head John Brennan, from spreading them.

But not only did he spread questionable claims, he added a little falsehood of his own on top of it all.

One of the alleged pieces of evidence from Parnas is a unsigned, undated note allegedly written by Parnas, talking about getting President Zelensky to announce an investigation on the stationary of the Ritz Carlton. On its face, it’s ridiculous and anyone could have written it yesterday.

But John Brennan appeared on MSNBC and claimed that President Donald Trump had written the note.

He later admitted it on Twitter, saying he “mistakenly” did it. But no apology.

Does anyone really believe this? He “mistakenly” did it, just like House Speaker Nancy Pelosi “mistakenly” falsely characterized the Ukraine call transcript.

Plus, Brennan can’t even get the guy’s name right. It’s Lev, not Les. He had to correct that too.

But sure, let’s trust anything this character who has a history of lying and deception, has to say.

But Brit Hume delivered the coup de grace.

Indeed. The only question is whether that will do him in when U.S. Attorney John Durham has his day.
