On Wednesday, two of Rudy Giuliani’s best Ukrainian-American pals, Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman, hereafter known as The Chucklefucks, were arrested at Dulles airport in DC as they tried to ride a one-way ticket outta town, reportedly to Vienna. They are charged with massive campaign finance violations that Wonkette explained right here, and they’ve also reportedly been a part of Giuliani’s project to get Ukraine to make up shit about Joe Biden and what really happened in the 2016 election (NO RUSSIA!), in order to aid Donald Trump’s re-election. As many new names as we are learning right now, remember that is the central crime for which Donald Trump is getting a one-way ticket to having an asterisk by his name in the history books, because of how he, an illegitimate president, was impeached.
When US Attorney Geoffrey Berman threw a press conference announcing the indictments, he said a couple of curious things. One was that the investigation is ongoing, which should have sent shivers down the spines of Rudy Giuliani, Donald Trump, and a number of other folks. Think about it. The Chucklefucks appear to be small fish you’ve never heard of, so it may very well be that the Southern District of New York (SDNY) is looking for Chucklefuck One, Chucklefuck Two, or both, to flip on bigger people. If you are a “bigger people” in the large scheme to extort Ukraine for campaign meddling, you might be li’l bit worried right now.
Indeed, CNN is reporting that Giuliani’s dealings here are being “scrutinized” by SDNY. Yikes, Rudy!
But as Rachel Maddow noted last night, a very central figure to all this Trump Biden smear campaign Ukrainium One shit lives in Vienna, where he is on house arrest, awaiting maybe extradition to the United States on billions of bucks of bribery charges, and that guy is Dmitry Firtash, a Ukrainian oligarch who is BFFs with Vladimir Putin.
Want to know some more awesome things about Dmitry Firtash, who lives in Vienna on house arrest, who Giuliani and the Chucklefucks were DEFINITELY not going to Vienna to cahoots with on their little master plan?
-He’s super close pals with Semion Mogilevich, who’s pretty much the head of the Russian mob. Firtash is way up there with the organized crime too. Indeed, Firtash has been called Mogilevich’s front man.
-He’s also got ties with Vincent Tchenguiz, who was the biggest shareholder in SCL Group, which owned Cambridge Analytica, the Trump campaign data organization that did … WE STILL DON’T KNOW … for Trump in the 2016 election.
-Hey, know who was instrumental in putting together the giant money laundering/bribery case against Firtash, the one he’s wanted in America for but hasn’t been extradited yet from his house arrest in Vienna? Lisa Page. Yes, the former FBI person Donald Trump has been mocking and shaming for years on Twitter, the one whose orgasms he was strangely faking last night at his Hitler rally in Minneapolis.
