New charges are likely in a criminal campaign finance case against Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman, two associates of U.S. President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani. It was stated by a federal prosecutor on Monday, Reuters reports.

“We think a superseding indictment is likely,” Assistant U.S. Attorney Douglas Zolkind said at a hearing in Manhattan federal court. He did not say whether any additional defendants could expect to be charged.

Parnas and Fruman have become of the main figures in Trump's impeachment inquiry.

Parnas, who is currently under arrest in the United States, warned a representative of the new president of Ukraine about Trump's intention to freeze military aid to Ukraine and his refusal of delegating U.S. Vice President Mike Pence to the inauguration of Volodymyr Zelensky unless there is an announcement of an investigation into Bidens and interfering into the 2016 U.S. election.

As we reported earlier, U.S. President Donald Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani conducted a “campaign full of lies” against the U.S. ambassador to Ukraine. It was stated by U.S. diplomat, George Kent, a deputy assistant secretary of state, Reuters informed.

Kent told congressional investigators that President Donald Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani conducted a “campaign full of lies” against the U.S. ambassador to Ukraine before she was recalled from her post, according to a transcript of his testimony released on Thursday.
