Giuliani Associates Who Aided Ukraine Investigation Arrested

Giuliani associates who aided Ukraine investigation arrested on campaign finance charges

Two men who aided efforts by President Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden were arrested on campaign finance violation charges Wednesday.

Federal authorities arrested Florida businessmen Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman, alleging that they violated campaign finance laws in order to funnel money to numerous Republican committees, including a $325,000 contribution in May 2018 to a pro-Trump super PAC called America First Action.

The charges allege that the two men participated in a straw donor scheme to provide money to political candidates. It does not appear that the allegations are related to the controversy over Giuliani’s work in Ukraine.
Fruman and Parnas, both U.S. citizens who were born in Ukraine, are expected to appear in federal court Thursday in Virginia. The U.S. attorney’s office in Manhattan has been investigating both men. Wall Street Journal also reports.

After the arrests were announced on Thursday, a trio of House committees pursuing the impeachment inquiry against Trump issued subpoenas to the two men for documents related to their work with Ukrainian officials and political contributions in the U.S.AMIBC® - VOTE! BE COUNTED! BE HEARD!
