Giuliani paid $500K for work for indicted associate's firm

The Hill 1 month ago

’s personal attorney, , said he was paid $500,000 for his work at a company co-founded by an associate who was arrested on campaign finance charges.

Giuliani told Reuters that Fraud Guarantee, Lev Parnas’s Boca Raton, Fla.-based company, took on Giuliani Partners as a management and security consulting firm around August 2018. Giuliani was hired to consult the company and provide legal advice.

Giuliani also said he received two payments within weeks of each other but did not say when they were made.

Parnas, a Ukraine-born businessman, was one of two Giuliani associates  who helped the former New York City mayor in efforts to investigate former Vice President . House Democrats launched an impeachment inquiry after revelations that Trump pressured his Ukrainian counterpart to investigate Biden, a leading 2020 White House candidate, and his son.

The latest development comes after The New York Times noted last week that Parnas told associates he paid Giuliani hundreds of thousands of dollars for his work.

Parnas and Fruman were arrested last Wednesday at Dulles International Airport  with one-way international tickets. They arrests came hours after they had lunch with Giuliani at the Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C.

Federal authorities allege Parnas and Fruman 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.

Federal prosecutors in Manhattan are also reportedly investigating whether Giuliani’s dealing with Ukraine broke lobbying laws.
