Giuliani’s Henchmen Worked For Ukraine Oligarch

ABC News reports:



When two Rudy Giuliani associates were arrested last week and charged with funneling foreign money into political campaigns, two big questions lingered: Which foreigners were they working for, and what was their ultimate goal? There are growing indications that a Ukrainian-backed oligarch who is fighting extradition to the United States figures in the answers. The evidence is emerging from the mists of a complicated story.

The indicted pair, Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman, were helping Rudy Giuliani hunt for dirt on Donald Trump’s political opponents in Ukraine, even as they were also pitching potential partners on a business deal with Ukraine’s gas company. Oligarch Dmytro Firtash appears to be linked to both efforts. Parnas and Fruman were advocating on his behalf as they pitched a natural gas deal. And Firtash produced a document that Giuliani has used to attack former Vice President Joe Biden.
