Lev Parnas arrives at court in New York. Parnas a close associate of President Donald Trump's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani has provided a trove of text messages and

Indicted Rudy Giuliani associate Lev Parnas has handed over a "trove" of information to the Democratic-run House Intelligence Committee, his lawyer says.

Bondy, Parnas' New York attorney, traveled to Washington, DC, over the weekend to hand-deliver the contents of an iPhone 11 to Democratic staff on the House Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations, according to a series of Bondy's tweets.

In a second tweet, Bondy said U.S. District Judge Paul Oetken of the Southern District of NY had granted permission for him to also give contents of a Samsung phone to investigators.

"Earlier this morning, the Court granted our request for a second modification of the protective order". On Monday, the judge granted Parnas permission to share contents of additional electronic devices with House committees, and Bondy in response wrote in a tweet that his client's legal team will be working to "provide the other materials as soon as possible".

Parnas wants to testify in the hopes of more lenient treatment in his own case, in which he allegedly tried to steer foreign cash into USA elections and hide the source.

Parnas and Fruman, both US citizens who emigrated from the former Soviet bloc, were indicted by federal prosecutors on charges of conspiracy, making false statements and falsification of records related to allegations they made outsized campaign donations to Republican causes after receiving millions of dollars originating from Russian Federation.

Three others - Richard Burgon on 18, Rosena Allin-Khan with 17 and Dawn Butler with 15 - are hoping they can also make the cut. They join the shadow Brexit Secretary Sir Keir Starmer , who was the first to send the required number of followers this week.

Bondy attached his statement to a grinning thumbs-up photo of Parnas and Trump, who last fall denied knowing Parnas despite photos showing them at fundraisers and events.

Giuliani's relationship with Parnas and Fruman is the subject of a criminal investigation in the Southern District of NY, according to sources.

The Soviet-born Parnas, Fruman and two others were charged with funneling foreign money into United States elections and citing a bogus donor to hide the source of the cash. Both have pleaded not guilty. But a letter sent to Parnas by the committee as part of its subpoena asked him to produce "all documents and communications" relating to Giuliani and President Trump, among many others.

Parnas and Fruman were involved in Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani's efforts to dig up information in Ukraine and seek an investigation related to former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter.

The efforts by Bondy to assist congressional investigators could be an effort to demonstrate his client's utility as a potential witness in the Southern District of NY, where he is being prosecuted.

The calls likely included several placed on Parnas' phone to Rep. Devin Nunes, the House Intelligence Committee's ranking GOP member.
