It has the keywords "Florida Man" in it. AS A FLORIDIAN I AM COMPELLED TO COMMENT.
Which, in short, is this. BWHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.
Let's go into a little more detail, via Brad Reed at Raw Story:
Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman, the two henchmen who helped Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani arrange meetings with Ukrainian officials, have been accused of taking money from an unidentified Russian businessman and illegally funneling it to Republican candidates.
In the indictment released by the United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York, Parnas and Fruman are alleged to have “conspired to make political donations” to political candidates using money provided by a person identified only as “Foreign National-1.”
According to the indictment, this individual “is a foreign national Russian citizen and businessman who, at all relevant times, was not a citizen or lawful permanent resident of the United States.”
Parnas, Fruman and their associates used the money from this Russian national to donate to political candidates who were in positions to help them set up a medical marijuana business, SDNY alleges...
These acts do violate election laws regarding foreign funding.
The fun stuff happened when the news got out that the two men - let's call them Rudy Henchman 1 and Rudy Henchman 2 - were arrested at Dulles International Airport, attempting to flee the country. The reason for fleeing either had to do with avoiding testifying before Congress on their role in Rudy's Ukraine scandal-shopping, or with these charges that someone may have tipped them off about the day before...
Let's stick to Raw Story this time to Sarah Burris' article:
The two foreign-born men who have been helping President Donald Trump’s attorney Rudy Giuliani find dirt on former Vice President Joe Biden and his family were indicted and arrested early this morning while at Dulles Airport just west of Washington, D.C.
According to MSNBC, the men, Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman, were on an outbound international flight attempting to flee the country...
I had 50 cents on it them fleeing to Morocco - the closest nation without extradition to the U.S. - but it seems one was heading to Frankfurt and the other was heading to San Francisco to get a connecting flight to Asia by the looks of it.
Anyways, let me refresh this: BWHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.
I really don't want to be blogging tonight. I've got other things to do, baseball to watch - GO RAYS - and NaNo projects to line up. It's just... the whole madness of this plot twist - this ongoing criminal conspiracy of a mob family getting dumber and more reckless as the law gets closer to tagging and bagging them - required comment.
If I gotta quote from the mob movie classics, I gotta go with this...
Fredos everywhere, man.
