2nd tape shows Trump meeting with congressman and Giuliani associates Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman

This is the second private video with Trump released in the past week.

A video released by Lev Parnas, a former associate of Rudy Giuliani, shows another encounter with President Trump. The April 20, 2018 encounter happened at Mar a Lago, the president’s weekend retreat.

Trump, who is in the midst of his impeachment trial, has insisted he does not know the two businessmen, Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman, who also helped Giuliani dig into since-discredited allegations that Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden corruptly sought to protect his son from a Ukrainian investigation he was in office.

Late last year, Parnas and Furman were indicted in New York federal court for allegedly scheming to circumvent campaign finance laws and raise $20,000 for a then-sitting congressman, since identified as Sessions. Both Parnas and Fruman have pleaded not guilty.

Sessions recently told ABC News he is cooperating with the federal probe.

In May 2018, Sessions sent a letter to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo urging him to remove Yovanovitch, insisting – with no evidence – that Yovanovitch had been working against Trump.

A spokesman for Sessions declined to comment for this article.
