NEW YORK (AP) — A Florida businessman who gained notoriety for helping Rudy Giuliani seek damaging information on Joe Biden in Ukraine has pleaded guilty to seeking illegal foreign campaign contributions in an effort to build a marijuana business in the U.S. Igor Fruman entered the plea Friday in Manhattan federal court after reaching a deal reached with prosecutors. Fruman’s plea agreement does not require the 56-year-old to cooperate in other cases. That charge was part of a wide-ranging indictment that had charged Fruman and others with various crimes. Giuliani was not charged in this case, but has been under investigation for his Ukraine dealings while serving as then-President Donald Trump’s personal lawyers.
