Lev parnas hid $1M transfer from Russia

Federal prosecutors in New York asked a judge Wednesday to revoke bail for an associate of President Donald Trump's personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani, arguing Lev Parnas should be jailed before trial for providing false financial information to authorities.

The demand came after Parnas, charged with partner Igor Fruman and two others with campaign finance violations, asked a judge to ease the terms of his home confinement, which is a condition of his release on a $200,000 bond.

Prosecutors not only opposed that request but also argued that Parnas be jailed for making "materially misleading and false statements" about his assets and attempting to mislead the pretrial officer supervising him.
