Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman were arrested late Wednesday night for funnelling $325,000 in illegal donations from Russia into a Trump super PAC.


In May 2018, the two men gave $325,000 to the pro-Trump super PAC American First Action through an LLC, the group confirmed to NBC News.


In addition to the illegal donations, both men worked with Rudy Giuliani on his attempts to investigate Biden in Ukraine.


Fruman and Parnas worked with Rudy Giuliani, Trump's personal attorney, Giuliani has previously said, as part of his dealings in Ukraine that involved efforts to encourage the nation to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter Biden. Parnas is Ukrainian, while Fruman is Belarusian, according to the indictment unsealed Thursday.

EDIT- Adding aditional info from the source article to clear up the Russian confusion


The men were charged with four counts, including conspiracy, falsification of records and lying to the FEC about their political donations, according to the indictment that outlines a conspiracy to funnel a Russian donor’s money into U.S. elections.

Original OP headline:

No mention of Russia in your source AT ALL, and your own source states that the PAC put the money into a segregated account immediately until they figured out if it was above board or not:




In May 2018, the two men gave $325,000 to the pro-Trump super PAC American First Action through an LLC, the group confirmed to NBC News. "Accordingly, America First Action placed that contribution in a segregated bank account, it has not been used it for any purpose and the funds will remain in this segregated account until these matters are resolved," a PAC spokesman said. "We take our legal obligations seriously and scrupulously comply with the law and any suggestion otherwise is false."

Not only was Russia never mentioned, but Trumps PAC never even used the money...it was put in to a segregated account from the get go and remains there until this whole thing is sorted out.

You are correct, it is not mentioned in that article. However, it is mentioned in the source article.
