Trump’s Watergate Burglars, Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman, Just Got Arrested

Westlake Legal Group H3YRzqL9NFIQRd_P1pdxhjvs0DweuRdcHWyfN3lfhs0 Trump’s Watergate Burglars, Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman, Just Got Arrested r/politics

Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman were carrying out President Trump’s scheme to pressure Ukraine to investigate his domestic rivals. This morning, the two men were arrested on campaign-finance charges as they attempted to leave the country.

The campaign-finance charges involve Parnas and Fruman allegedly violating federal law by funneling several million dollars to Pete Sessions, a former House Republican from Texas. Sessions was valuable to their operation because he publicly demanded the firing of Marie Yovanovitch, the U.S. ambassador (who was subsequently fired.) Lachlan Markay detailed the connection between Parnas, Fruman, and Sessions earlier this week.

That was the small stuff:

Parnas and Fruman were working with Rudy Giuliani, who represents the two as their lawyer, to encourage various Ukrainians to investigate Trump’s opponents in Ukraine. Their work initially focused on discrediting the Mueller investigation, and later evolved to include pursuing unsubstantiated allegations against the Biden family. At the same time they were advancing Trump’s agenda, they were working on a side hustle in which they tried to push Ukraine’s state-controlled energy sector to sign them up to export liquid natural gas. The gas proposal appears to be their payoff: They could let Ukraine know they represented Trump, and Ukraine would therefore have an incentive to throw some business their way, despite their lack of expertise in the inner workings of the energy business.

Parnas and Fruman managed to meet both with President Trump and Donald Trump Jr., and get photographs of both meetings. Those photos were important to burnish their credentials as legitimate representatives of the Trump administration.

Let’s talk about Trump’s takeover of the GOP. I’m Tim Alberta, POLITICO’s chief political correspondent and author of NYT bestseller “American Carnage” – ask me anything.

This summer, I published my first book: an insider’s look at the making of the modern Republican Party. The idea was to explain how an aligning of events invited Donald Trump’s hijacking of the GOP.

I spent the past decade covering Republican politics, stuffing dozens of notebooks full of reporting that would come back to animate the pages of this book. In addition, I conducted hundreds of fresh, exclusive interviews with the key players, including with President Trump, Paul Ryan, Ted Cruz, John Boehner, Mitch McConnell, Jim DeMint, and Reince Priebus, among many others. (Sarah Palin declined to be interviewed, but Trump took it upon himself to defend her legacy, telling me how she’d helped spark the anti-establishment movement.)

The conclusion I reached: Only by viewing Trump as the product of a decade-long civil war inside the GOP can we understand how he won the White House and consider the questions at the center of America’s current turmoil:

  • Why are Republican elected officials so afraid of dissenting from Trump?

  • How did a party once obsessed with national insolvency come to champion trillion-dollar deficits?

  • How did the party of compassionate conservatism become the party of Muslim bans and family separation?

  • How did the party of family values elect a thrice-married philanderer?

  • And, most important, how long can such a party survive?

Ask me anything. (Read more about the book here.)

Megathread: Two Giuliani Associates Tied to Ukraine Scandal Arrested on Campaign Finance Charges

Two business associates of President Trump’s personal lawyer Rudolph W. Giuliani have been charged with a scheme to route foreign money into U.S. elections, according to a newly unsealed indictment.

The two men, who helped Giuliani investigate former vice president Joe Biden, were arrested Wednesday night in Virginia, according to a person familiar with the charges. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss an ongoing investigation.

Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman have been under investigation by the U.S. attorney’s office in Manhattan and are expected to appear in federal court in Virginia later Thursday.

A link to the indictment is here.

The Actual Laws Trump Has Broken, Just With the Ukraine and China Affairs, Could Land Him 10 Years in Prison

Westlake Legal Group YmfZmQpD8XdY58m0bIBA86la4n3ELbfkY8iZxTIMv94 The Actual Laws Trump Has Broken, Just With the Ukraine and China Affairs, Could Land Him 10 Years in Prison r/politics

In my jurisdiction, trafficking over 200 grams of cocaine, once, nets you a mandatory minimum of 12 years. And “trafficking” is an offense designed to make it so that if you possess that much, well, that’s it, the prosecution doesn’t have to prove anything else.

So, that’s if we’re looking at minimum sentences – and mandatory ones to boot, because hey, drugs, right? Way more serious than completely undermining the entire country from a position of power.

If we’re looking at discretionary maximum sentences, however, “trafficking” between 18-36 grams of cocaine, once, could theoretically land you a prison sentence of up to 15 years.

So everyone who thinks we’re just joking around about this bullshit, please, by all means, let all that sink in.

Trump, “just” for totally undermining the country with foreign actors twice, from a position of incredible power within the federal government, might be looking at 10 whole years in prison.

Wow, so serious. Not “18-36 grams of cocaine” serious, but serious.
