Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

Lev Parnas, a Florida businessman who is an associate of Rudolph W. Giuliani's, was found guilty on Friday of using funds from a foreign investor to try to influence political candidates through campaign donations. It took the federal jury in U.S. District Court in Manhattan less than a day to find that Parnas committed fraud through donations to several state and federal candidates that were bankrolled by a Russian financier. Parnas was also found guilty on counts related to a $325,000 donation in 2018 to a joint fundraising committee that supported then-President Donald Trump. Prosecutors told the jury that the illegal fundraising efforts documented in text messages and other trial evidence gave Parnas access to elected officials and candidates. They showed photos of Parnas with Trump and Giuliani, who was the president's personal lawyer, schmoozing at high-end political fundraisers.

Lesson #1 ~ Don't put your crimes in writing.

Lesson #2 ~ Don't have your picture taken with partners-in-crime.

Lesson #3 ~ Read book "Everything Trump Touches Die."
