The.

Money.

And yes, this is in the Southern District of New York. FTW.

Wapo:

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 on Thursday.

And of course the rest of the article is about massive foreign donations to the Trump 2020 superPAC, a desire from Trump for foreign dirt on Joe Biden, and connections to and communications with Ukraine.
