Two Giuliani Henchmen Plead Not Guilty To Conspiracy

Talking Points Memo reports:

Two out of four defendants in the Rudy Giuliani-linked alleged campaign finance scheme were arraigned in Manhattan federal court on Thursday. David Correia and Andrey Kukushkin pleaded not guilty to charges of conspiracy before District Judge J. Paul Oetken for the Southern District of New York.

Kukushkin was arrested last week. Correia surrendered to U.S. authorities at JFK International Airport on Wednesday upon arriving in New York from overseas. Prosecutors said the investigation was ongoing and referenced more than 50 bank accounts and 10 email accounts whose records were in possession of the government.

Kukushkin is represented by Gerald Lefcourt and Faith Friedman. Lefcourt has represented numerous famous clients in high profile cases, including Jeffrey Epstein, Russell Crowe, and New York real estate mogul Harry Helmsley. Correia is represented by Jeff Marcus and William Harrington.
