According to the Wall Street Journal, two foreign-born men who helped Rudy Giuliani investigate Joe Biden in Ukraine have been arrested on criminal charges for violating campaign finance violations
“Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman, two Florida businessmen, have been under investigation by the U.S. Attorney’s office in Manhattan, and are expected to appear in federal court in Virginia later on Thursday, the people said. The men’s nationalities was unclear, though both were believed to have been born in former Soviet republics.”
Mr. Giuliani has previously identified the two men as clients. According to the Journal, both men have donated heavily to the GOP campaigns including Donald Trump’s.
The two men are represented by John Dowd, the former lead attorney for Donald Trump in the special counsel investigation.
UPDATE: The indictment has been released and says Lev Parnas met with a Congressman to help with recalling the U.S. ambassador to Ukraine.
