Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) has been outed for associating with at least one of the Rudy Giuliani associates arrested last week.
According to a video posted by Reuters reporter Joey Roulette on Twitter, Ukrainian businessman Lev Parnas can be seen standing with DeSantis after his election night win last November.
“Ukrainian businessman Lev Parnas, one of two Giuliani associates arrested last week and charged for scheming to funnel foreign money into various US elections, is seen (on the left) in this Nov 6 2018 video I took at Governor Ron DeSantis’ election victory party in Orlando,” tweeted Roulette.
Parnas can be seen wearing a white shirt with a black blazer over it, and a thick silver chain around his neck. The room was filled with supporters, staff, advisors and friends of DeSantis, so it’s unclear which group Parnas falls into.

Donald Trump is obsessed with impeachment — and lashing out
An irate Donald Trump said Friday he welcomes the prospect of an impeachment trial, as the US leader lashed out at "crazy" and "corrupt" opponents probing potential abuse of presidential power.
After a week of dramatic impeachment testimony from current and former administration officials, an embattled Trump took to a favorite broadcaster to air a long, occasionally incoherent list of grievances -- against the FBI, his political adversaries, impeachment inquiry leaders, the "deep state," and more.
"These people are sick," Trump raged down the telephone line to Fox at the start of a 53-minute tirade that showed how angered and unsettled he has been by an impeachment inquiry that threatens his presidency.
Intelligence agencies briefed the Senate on Russian propaganda blaming Ukraine — Republicans didn’t believe it
Friday it was revealed that Russia has worked on a disinformation campaign to blame Ukraine for the 2016 election meddling.
Every U.S. and international intelligence agency (other than Russia) has confirmed that Russia was at fault for the election meddling. Facebook and Twitter released information about the costs and ad buys done by Russian disinformation campaigns. Yet, Russia is now attempting to blame Ukraine.
DOJ report clears FBI’s Russia probe of any anti-Trump political bias
Despite President Donald Trump ordering the Dept. of Justice to investigate the FBI amid false far right wing conspiracy theories the president himself has spread, the DOJ's inspector general will issue a report clearing the Bureau's Russia probe of any anti-Trump political bias.
The several-hundred page report will find that the investigation into Russia's attack on the U.S. 2016 election and into the actions of Donald Trump and his associates was "legally and factually justified," The Washington Post reports.
