See, I told you so.....

This isn't partisan folks -- it's something deeper.

Two associates of Rudy Giuliani who have been linked to his investigations in Ukraine have been indicted for campaign finance violations, according to court documents released Thursday.

Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman are accused of using a limited liability company to make political contributions related to American elections, in violation of FEC prohibitions against contributions from foreign nationals. Both men have been linked to Giuliani’s efforts to conduct investigations in Ukraine.

That's illegal.

Guliani has tried to claim this (the FEC violation) is a "civil matter."  Well, it certainly is a civil matter also, but in some cases it can be a criminal issue, especially where willful and intentional conduct is involved, as is alleged here.

Nor is this limited to these folks donating to a Trump SuperPAC -- there also is apparently a link to some sort of recreational marijuana venture, which is likely linked (given where the arrest and indictment was issued) to somewhere in the NE -- New York, if you remember, failed to legalize (and instead decriminalized) recreational marijuana this year, so it's likely that the focus was in some other US State.

It appears the PAC turned them in. Seems there is enough money to go around in both Parties. I saw where Pencil Neck got a nice chunk a few years back. Bet he didn't call the cops.
