New Video Shows Indicted Giuliani Associate With Florida GOP Governor On Election Night




A video emerged on Monday of Florida Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis celebrating with Lev Parnas, one of the two Soviet-born businessmen arrested last week on charges of funneling foreign cash into U.S. elections, at DeSantis’ election night victory party in Orlando last year.

“Ukrainian businessman Lev Parnas, one of two Giuliani associates arrested last week and charged for scheming to funnel foreign money into various US elections, is seen (on the left) in this Nov 6 2018 video I took at Governor Ron DeSantis’ election victory party in Orlando,” tweeted Reuters reporter Joey Roulette along with a video he took of DeSantis and Parnas together.



The Orlando Sentinel reports:

The images come as the governor’s office echoed its statements from last week that DeSantis had never met “one-on-one” with Parnas despite the $50,000 he and Igor Fruman, both South Florida residents, donated to the Friends of Ron DeSantis political committee in June 2018 via the company Global Energy Producers. Both are associates of President Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani.

Parnas was also listed as a member of the steering committee for a July 2018 fundraiser for DeSantis held at the Alaqua Country Club in Seminole County. Fellow committee members, however, said they have no memory of Parnas and aren’t sure he attended.

A Tampa Bay Times photo taken Nov. 6 at the Rosen Center in Orlando showed DeSantis face to face with Parnas during his victory celebration.
