Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman, two Jewish businessmen from the former Soviet Union and close associates of President Trump's embattled personal attorney Rudolph Giuliani, were arrested last Thursday night as they tried to board a flight to Vienna.
Correia is accused of conspired with the other defendants, including Ukrainian-born U.S. citizen Andrey Kukushkin, to make political donations to local and federal politicians in New York, Nevada and other states with the aim of trying to get support for a new recreational marijuana business.
David Correia, 44, was named in an indictment with two Giuliani associates and another man arrested last week on charges they made illegal contributions to politicians and a political action committee supporting Donald Trump.
Last week, ABC News reported the business relationship between Giuliani and the men charged in the alleged campaign finance scheme is a subject of the ongoing criminal investigation being conducted by federal authorities in NY, according to two sources familiar with the matter.
Rep. Sessions has denied wrongdoing and said he had been approached by Parnas and Fruman for a meeting about "the strategic need for Ukraine to become energy independent".

Correia is accused of conspiring with the other defendants, including Ukrainian-born US citizen Andrey Kukushkin, to make political donations in an effort to drum up support for a new recreational marijuana business in Nevada and other states.
For months, investigators looking into Rudy Giuliani's business dealings in Ukraine have dug into everything from possible financial entanglements with alleged corrupt Ukrainian figures to counterintelligence concerns raised by some of those business ties, according to people briefed on the matter. The men are accused of violating campaign finance laws.
The Associated Press reported last week that Sessions fits the description in the indictment of a congressman who prosecutors allege was part of a co-ordinated effort to remove the US ambassador to Ukraine. Correia was also indicted, but remained at large until Wednesday.
According to the indictment (pdf), Parnas and Fruman began attending political fundraising events in March 2018 and made a $325,000 contribution to an independent expenditure committee and a $15,000 contribution to another committee. The community's web page says it has raised more than $500,000 toward a goal of $1 million, though it's unclear if the campaign is ongoing. John Dowd, a lawyer for Parnas and Fruman, also would not discuss the source of the funding that Giuliani said he received for his work for Fraud Guarantee.
Giuliani used Parnas as his Ukrainian fixer, and leaned on the men and their connections as he investigated Joe Biden and his son in Ukraine.
