Photo Emerges Tying Trump Jr. To Giuliani’s Indicted Ukraine Henchmen
A photo has emerged online showing Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman, the two Trump-backing foreign-born businessmen who have now been indicted on campaign-finance charges, meeting with Donald Trump Jr.
According to USA Today, the photo was originally posted on Parnas’ Instagram account and flagged by Trump’s biographer Tim O’Brien.
In the photo, Parnas, Fruman, and Trump Jr. are having breakfast together at the Beverly Hills Polo Lounge in Thousand Oaks, California.
The two Ukrainian nationals are key figures in the scandal surrounding President Donald Trump’s efforts to pressure the Ukrainian government to launch investigations against his political opponents. They helped arrange meetings between Giuliani and Ukrainian prosecutor Yuri Lutsenko, who at one point claimed to have dirt on the Bidens.
Biden, with the support of multiple western governments, was part of an effort to get Ukraine to fire Lutsenko because he was not doing enough to investigate corruption in the country.
