Obtained by @CourthouseNews, a never-before-published photo shows House Minority Leader McCarthy standing between two old donors - Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman - contradicting what he told me last week on Capitol Hill.
Investigation by me & @MMineiro_CNS: https://www.courthousenews.com/indicted-giuliani-ally-has-money-tied-republicans-seeking-cover/ …
The story charts how Parnas, Fruman, their company, & a "Furman" alter-ego spread more than $620,000 in donations across dozens of GOP candidates, committees and other entities.
This interactive map looks at donations to 2018 GOP candidates: https://public.tableau.com/profile/adam.klasfeld#!/vizhome/LevParnasandIgorFruman-IndividualDonationsto2018GOPHouseCandidates/MapandList?publish=yes …
The article itself looks at the entire picture of the donations into greater depth.
It's a #longread, mapping out how -- through joint fundraising committees and PACs -- Parnas and Fruman's donations reached so many politicians and entities. https://www.courthousenews.com/indicted-giuliani-ally-has-money-tied-republicans-seeking-cover/ …
