Manafort’s Lawyers Represented Igor Fruman, Lev Parnas in Court

Kevin Downing, attorney for former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, speaks to the media at the E. Barrett Prettyman U.S. Courthouse, after his client was was sentenced to 73 months in jail, on March 13, 2019 in Alexandria, Virginia. 

In an interesting nugget, the Ukrainian-born Florida businessmen — friends and clients of Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani — were represented at their initial court appearance in Alexandria, Virginia by the lawyers who represented former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort during a high-profile trial that resulted in Manafort’s incarceration.

Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman were represented by Kevin Downing and Thomas Zehnle in court. The pair is also being represented by former Trump attorney John Dowd.

Downing and Zehnle’s involvement is apparently temporary. They laughed at the suggestion that Giuliani asked them to show up.

Parnas and Fruman were arrested on Wednesday night at Dulles Airport in Virginia for alleged campaign finance violations. Officially, the charges are as follows: two counts of conspiracy, one count of making false statements; and one count of falsification of records.
