David Correia, Who Was Indicted With Giuliani Associates, Is Arrested
David Correia, who was charged last week in a campaign finance scheme along with two longtime associates of President Trump’s personal lawyer, Rudolph W. Giuliani, was arrested Wednesday, officials said.
Mr. Correia, 44, surrendered to agents with the Federal Bureau of Investigation at 10:30 a.m. at Kennedy International Airport, after he returned from a foreign country, officials said.
He had been charged in a federal indictment unsealed last week with participating in a conspiracy to conceal the source of hundreds of thousands of dollars in political contributions that came from overseas donors.
Two of the other defendants in the case, Igor Fruman and Lev Parnas, have aided Mr. Trump’s efforts to gather damaging information in Ukraine about his political opponents. They were also arrested last week at an airport, with one-way tickets to Frankfurt.
The indictment, filed in the Southern District of New York, revealed new information about the attempt to pressure Ukraine, which is the focus of the impeachment inquiry that House Democrats opened last month.
Mr. Trump has continued to defend the effort and has tried to discredit the impeachment inquiry. But the indictment and criminal case signaled growing legal exposure for those connected to the foreign policy push that Mr. Giuliani conducted in Mr. Trump’s interest.
The indictment directly connected Mr. Parnas and Mr. Fruman, two of Mr. Giuliani’s associates, to an attempt to recall the United States ambassador to Ukraine, Marie L. Yovanovitch, who became a focus of criticism from many of Mr. Trump’s allies. – Source
