The Justice Department Thursday is denying Lev Parnas’ claims that Attorney General William P. Barr knew about President Trump’s efforts to pressure Ukraine into announcing an investigation into former Vice President Joseph R. Biden and his son, Hunter.

In a bombshell interview with MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow Wednesday night, Mr. Parnas said the attorney general “absolutely” was in contact with Mr. Trump’s personal attorney and former New York Mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani about his efforts in Ukraine.
