Rudy Giuliani’s financial dealings are under investigation by FBI and federal prosecutors: report

Alternet 1 month ago

President Donald Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani is under investigation.

“Rudy Giuliani’s financial dealings with two associates indicted on campaign finance-related charges are under scrutiny by investigators overseeing the case, law enforcement officials briefed on the matter said,” CNN’s Shimon Prokupecz and Evan Pérez are reporting.

“The FBI and prosecutors in Manhattan are examining Giuliani’s involvement in the broader flow of money that have become the focus of alleged violations that are at the center of the allegations against Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman, the sources said. The sources did not say that Giuliani was a target of the investigation,” CNN adds.

But CNN Legal Analyst Elie Honig notes that “Prosecutors often do not interview targets.”

Those two associates, Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman, were arrested overnight fleeing the country on one-way tickets. Multiple reports reveal they also worked for Giuliani during his official capacity as Trump’s lawyer, and helped him try to dig up dirt on Joe Biden and Hunter Biden.

Parnas and Fruman allegedly laundered Russian money into the campaigns of several Republican politicians, including President Donald Trump.
