Lev Parnas, a former friend of Rudy Giuliani, was accused on Friday of several counts of money laundering, including giving illegal gifts to a political committee supporting President Donald Trump at the time.
Another man, Andrey Kukushin, was also tried by the same judges’ Rudy Giuliani in the U.S. District Court. In Manhattan, the next day, state and security officials resigned after a two-court hearing.
The two men have been accused of embezzling funds from a Russian man named Andrey Muraviev of an American diplomat in an attempt to start a Rudy Giuliani marijuana business. Refugees are prohibited from making political contributions in the United States.
Parnas, 49, has also been accused of giving Rudy Giuliani illegal gifts to Republican-backed PACs, committees, including the Trump super PAC.
A Florida-born Florida citizen, Parnas once took part in Trump’s first takeover, joining Democratic analysts on the issue. Parnas helped Giuliani dig into the mud of Ukrainian Rudy Giuliani President Joe Biden.
Trump has rejected military aid approved by Congress forcing the president to investigate Democrat Biden. Giuliani, who has been Trump’s attorney and spread his lies about losing Biden over election issues, was a former state attorney.
Giuliani has not yet been charged with the crime. But they are still being investigated by the New York government over questions about whether he should register as a foreign diplomat.
In a statement, U.S. Attorney Damian Williams said, “The coalition’s anti-corruption movement, Lev Parnas and Andrey Kukushkin’s conspiracy, to try U.S. politics, to get money.”
“To attract American politicians and diplomats, they have allowed foreign investment in the 2018 mid-term elections to make huge profits in selling cannabis,” said Williams, who holds a similar position. That belonged to Giuliani.
“Financial law is designed to preserve the dignity of our free and fair elections – without external interests or influence – and the protection of these laws is essential to preserving the freedom that the American people enjoy.”
Two men who had been suspended before the case argued.
One of them, Igor Fruman, had business with him and Parnas and worked with him and Giuliani to get a bad light for Biden and his son, Hunter Biden, who had businesses in Ukraine.
Fruman filed a lawsuit last month on the same charge of soliciting political money from a foreigner.
His sentence is set for January 21. Fruman’s treaty stipulates that the government grant him a three-year prison term of 3 years and 10 months.
David Correia, who admitted last October that he stole merchants from a company he started with Parnas, a company called Fraud Guarantee.
The two men are accused of spending more than $ 2 million on businesses and their own money as opposed to business. Giuliani earned hundreds of thousands of dollars in orders from Loyalty to Loyalty.
Correia has received a notification from state election officials about the source of the $ 350,000 from the PAC. Instead of coming from a real gas company, according to Correia, the money comes from a loan given to Fruman.
