It is not an exaggeration to say that with each passing day, the Ukrainian scandal that has swayed a majority of Americans to support the impeachment investigation, just gets bigger and bigger.
Today, after Giuliani’s “fixers” — Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman, were arrested and arraigned, it was revealed that before the pair allegedly attempted to flee the country (they were found with one way tickets to a foreign destination when they were picked up) they sat down and broke bread with Rudy Giuliani himself.
Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman had lunch with Rudy Giuliani at the Trump hotel in Washington YESTERDAY, a source who saw them tells @nataliewsj. They were arrested later that night at Dulles, where they were awaiting an international flight. https://t.co/BzPwutU0Ie

Andrey Kukushkin has been arrested and is expected to appear in court Thursday in the Northern District of California, according to the Manhattan US Attorney’s office.
