NEW YORK (AP) A prosecutor says an upgraded indictment is likely in the criminal case against two Rudy Giuliani associates with ties to Ukraine.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Douglas Zolkind made the prediction during a pretrial hearing Monday in the case against Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman.

The men are charged with using foreign money to make illegal campaign contributions.

The arrest of the men has brought new scrutiny to Giuliani, a former New York City mayor who is President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer.
