Igor Fruman, an associate of Rudy Giuliani charged in a campaign finance conspiracy, is expected to plead guilty Wednesday, according to court documents.
Fruman, who was charged in 2019 with partner Lev Parnas and two others, worked with Parnas in Giuliani’s effort in Ukraine to find damaging information on then-presidential candidate Joe Biden.
Notice of Fruman’s intent to change his not guilty plea was filed Monday in federal court in Manhattan where he has been charged with funneling foreign money to U.S. political campaigns.
The plea hearing is set for 4:30 p.m., Wednesday.
Fruman’s attorney could not be reached for comment Monday.
As part of their work for Giuliani, Fruman and Parnas helped former President Donald Trump’s personal attorney meet a Ukrainian prosecutor to push for an investigation of Biden, then Trump’s then political rival.
