4th Man Arrested At JFK Airport As Part Of Federal Probe Into Giuliani: Report
David Correia, a Florida man who was wanted for being involved in the case of Rudy Giuliani’s associates has just been taken into federal custody.
According to NBC New York, “Spokespersons for the U.S. attorney’s office in Manhattan and the FBI confirm that David Correia was arrested after flying Wednesday to JFK Airport in New York City to turn himself in.”
According to the report, Correia is the fourth man arrested in the case of two Giuliani associates and another man arrested last week on charges they made illegal contributions to a congressman and a political action committee supporting President Donald Trump.
Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman were arrested last week when they attempted to flee the country. Andrey Kukushkin, a Ukrainian-born U.S. citizen, was also charged in the case. Kukushkin was arrested last week in San Francisco.
Giuliani, who is now under federal investigation for the involvement with the four men, claims to have had no knowledge of the illegal campaign contributions.
According to the report, “Correia is accused of conspiring with the other defendants to make political donations to local and federal politicians in New York, Nevada and other states with the aim of trying to get support for a new recreational marijuana business.”
All of the defendants were expected to appear Thursday in federal court in Manhattan. A lawyer for Correia is not yet listed in court records.
