“A seven-count indictment was unsealed today in federal court in Brooklyn charging Andrii Derkach with conspiracy to violate the International Emergency Economic Powers Acts (IEEPA), bank fraud conspiracy, money laundering conspiracy and four counts of money laundering in connection with the purchase and maintenance of two condominiums in Beverly Hills, California. Derkach allegedly purchased the properties in violation of new U.S. sanctions imposed earlier this year and concealed his interest in the transactions. Derkach remains at large,” says a DOJ press release.
This son of a bitch was one of the main conduits of Russian interference in the 2020 election, feeding information on Hunter Biden to Devin Nunes and Rudy Giuliani, among others, as they tried to gin up a scandal to torpedo Joe Biden’s candidacy before he had even launched a campaign. You all know the rest: Trump was impeached over it, people ignored the “laptop from hell” in large part because of the impeachment, then he lost reelection. This is just some unfinished business.
