‘They remain in federal custody’: SDNY tells Maddow that Giuliani henchmen are still locked up

Published

on

MSNBC anchor Rachel Maddow on Monday reported at the beginning of her show that two associates of Rudy Giuliani had been released on $1 million bail.

The host had started her show by citing a Wall Street Journal report that Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman, “were released on $1 million bonds and haven’t yet entered pleas. They are scheduled to appear in federal court in Manhattan on Thursday.”

But at the end of her show, Maddow issued a correction.

“We are just about done for tonight, but I have to make a correction before we go. This is interesting. At the top of the show I cited the Wall Street Journal reported that Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman had been released on million dollars bail,” Maddow said. “That said, it turns out not to be correct.”

“We are told by the Southern District of New York — just moments ago — that despite the fact they have had the conditions for their bail set, they are not out,” Maddow reported.

She read a statement from prosecutors.

“They haven’t met the requirements of their bail. They remain in federal custody,” SDNY spokesperson Nick Biase said.

Maddow found the statement to be “intriguing.”

“We never get a call from SDNY,” Maddow noted. “Getting a call from them in the middle of the show was like, okay, got it.”

During his most recent rally, Trump begged the crowd to give him a "big win" in the election.

Eddie Rispone has conceded the #lagov race to Gov. John Bel Edwards, giving the Democrat four more years in ruby red Louisiana despite Trump’s best efforts to flip the seat. Edwards camp says Rispone called minutes ago to concede. #lagov #lalege

Published

on

Press secretary Stephanie Grisham on Saturday argued it was "dangerous for the country" for anyone to challenge the veracity of her claims.

Grisham made her argument after President Donald Trump went to Walter Reed Hospital for an unannounced doctor's visit, resulting in a great deal of speculation.

Following the visit, Grisham claimed Trump was "healthy" and "without complaints" -- a claim many found unlikely as the president has spent a good deal of time as president airing his many grievances.
