  • Gor Fruman, the Soviet-born South Florida businessman at the center of a federal campaign finance probe involving the President’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani, said he put more than $300,000 in political donations on company credit cards in hopes of jump-starting a new business.
  • It’s not clear from the hearing transcript or the federal indictment against Fruman and Parnas whether any of the political donations Fruman put on company credit cards are under scrutiny by authorities.
  • Federal prosecutors allege that Fruman and Parnas incorporated Global Energy Producers around the time they made more than $300,000 in campaign donations in 2018 and used it to evade reporting requirements and conceal that they were behind the contributions.
