Lev ParnasA lawyer representing an associate of Rudy Giuliani told The New York Times on Sunday that his client warned Ukrainian officials that the Trump administration would freeze military aid to Ukraine unless Kiev announced an investigation into former Vice President Joe Biden and his son.

According to the Times, Lev Parnas, who has found himself at the center of the impeachment inquiry into President Trump, is planning to tell House Democrats that he traveled to Ukraine to warn top officials that military aid would be frozen and that Vice President Pence would not attend Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky's inauguration were the announcement not made.

An attorney for Parnas did not immediately respond to a request for comment from The Hill.

Parnas's claim comes despite the president and other top administration officials insisting that military aid to Ukraine was never held up on the condition of Ukraine's government opening an investigation into Biden, a top contender for the Democratic Party's 2020 presidential nomination.
