As we told you earlier, Sen. Chuck Schumer was bringing Lev Parnas as an invited guest to sit in the gallery during today’s impeachment trial proceedings. But there was an unanswered question:
Lev Parnas to attend today's impeachment trial thanks to Chuck Schumer (But can he even get in with his court-ordered GPS tracker?) https://t.co/4MJJYkeErn

Would Parnas be allowed in with his court-ordered GPS tracker? We now know the answer. Ted Cruz and Lindsey Graham describe what happened:
Scenes from the impeachment trial: Schumer invited Lev Parnas to be his personal guest today at the trial. Minutes ago, Parnas was ejected from the gallery…because he’s wearing an ankle bracelet mandated bc he’s a criminal defendant accused of serious felonies! #CantMakeItUp

The best way to sum up this whole debacle is to understand that Senator Schumer’s desire for Lev Parnas to attend the Senate trial apparently cannot be accommodated because Mr. Parnas has an electronic ankle bracelet imposed upon him by the court. You can’t make this up.

It really is a circus!
If that ain't the definition of the caliber of this entire charade, I don't really know what is.
