Republican donors tied to Rudy Giuliani arrested

Two Ukrainian born businessmen based in Florida, among the prospective witnesses House Democrats want to question in their impeachment inquiry, have been arrested over violations of campaign finance laws. The Manhattan US Attorney’s office said Thursday Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman are expected to appear in a federal court in Virginia. The two are believe to be close associates of Rudy Giuliani.

I am sure these two Ukrainians violated the law; but Trump didn't twirl his mustache and order it. I'm sure we will find similar violations with the other candidates too.

Just like Clinton Cash all over again. Oh wait that whole steaming pile of rat feces has not been investigated (yet).

I'd just like to point out, the GOP didn't take the money. It was put in a segregated bank account for the investigation. This appears to be unrelated to the current fiasco with the phone call, apparently they were trying to buy off an unnamed Congressman in order to oust the former Ambassador to Ukraine in May of 2018.

Ok, interesting... let's see where this goes. Of course we should be fully aware that historically these types of cases have turned out to be less climatic than what was speculated when the story first broke.

"Linked to", "tied to", "with ties", "associated with", "who once knew", "kid brother's friend's ex-girlfriend's step-half-uncle twice removed". All buzz words used to give the illusion of guilt by association. What ever happened to the five W's of journalism?

We hear about all these campaign violations and finally when someone gets arrested it’s a pair of Ukrainian brothers with ties to the GOP..... nothing to see here.
