WASHINGTON — Lev Parnas has been clamoring to share what he knows about President Trump with the impeachment investigation, and on Monday a federal judge cleared the way for him to do just that.

华盛顿——列弗·帕纳斯(Lev Parnas)一直吵着要在弹劾调查中分享他对特朗普总统的了解,一名联邦法官在周一为他这样做扫清了障碍。

And if that weren't enough bad news for Trump, prosecutors also said their criminal case against the Soviet-born businessman is likely to expand to add new charges or additional defendants. That's a worrying sign for Trump's attorney, and Parnas' longtime associate, Rudy Giuliani, who's widely reported to be under criminal investigation by the same prosecutors charging Parnas in the Southern District of New York.

如果这还不足以成为特朗普的坏消息,检察官还表示,他们针对这位苏联出生的商人的刑事案件可能会扩大,增加新的指控或新的被告。这对特朗普的律师、帕纳斯的长期合作伙伴鲁迪·朱利安尼来说是一个令人担忧的迹象。据报道,在纽约南区,指控帕纳斯的检察官正在对他进行刑事调查。

On Monday, the federal judge overseeing Parnas' criminal case said he plans to let prosecutors share some of the mountain of evidence collected in the investigation of Parnas with Congress, according to a report in Courthouse News.

据《法院新闻》报道,周一,负责审理帕纳斯刑事案件的联邦法官表示,他计划让检方与国会分享在调查帕纳斯案件中收集到的大量证据中的一部分。

“I certainly expect to grant that request,” Judge Paul Oetken said.

“我当然希望批准这一请求,”法官保罗·厄特肯(Paul Oetken)说。

Such an order, which would allow Parnas to fulfill a Congressional subpoena for documents, poses yet another threat to Trump, who has claimed he doesn't know Parnas despite appearing next to him in multiple photographs. The trail of documents could reveal links between Parnas, Giuliani, and Trump that would be much harder for Trump to breezily dismiss.

这样的命令将允许帕纳斯履行向国会提交文件的传票,这对特朗普构成了又一个威胁,尽管他在多张照片中出现在帕纳斯身边,特朗普还是声称自己不认识他。这些文件的线索可能会揭示帕纳斯、朱利安尼和特朗普之间的联系,这让特朗普更难脱离干系。

Parnas and three other associates were indicted in October for allegedly funneling illegal foreign donations to GOP political campaigns. Parnas, who has acknowledged helping Giuliani look for damaging information against former Vice President Joe Biden in Ukraine, has pleaded not guilty.

去年10月,帕纳斯和另外三名助手被起诉,罪名是向共和党的政治竞选活动提供非法外国捐款。帕纳斯承认曾帮助朱利安尼寻找针对前副总统乔·拜登的有害信息,但他否认有罪。

Investigators have collected a huge pile of documents and data in their investigation of Parnas, some of which could prove enormously helpful to House Democrats who are now pursuing an impeachment inquiry focused on Trump's attempts to pressure Ukraine to investigate his political enemies.

调查人员在对帕纳斯的调查中收集了大量文件和数据,其中一些可能对众议院民主党人非常有帮助,他们目前正在进行弹劾调查,重点是特朗普试图迫使乌克兰调查他的政敌。

But even with the judge's support for sharing what they've found, the transfer to Washington could be slowed because prosecutors still don't have passwords for some electronic devices. A transfer of paper records could happen much faster, however.

但是,即使法官支持分享他们发现的线索,转移到华盛顿的速度仍然可能会放缓,因为检察官仍然没有一些电子设备的密码。不过,纸质记录的传输速度可能会快得多。

鲁迪被起诉的助手列弗·帕纳斯可能会成为下一个弹劾炸弹

Prosecutors also signaled Sunday that the case will probably soon expand with a superseding indictment, which could add new charges or details — or possibly new defendants.

检方周日还暗示,此案可能很快会扩大规模,以取代起诉书,可能会增加新的指控或细节,也可能会增加新的被告。

“We think a superseding indictment is likely, but no decision has been made, certainly,” U.S. Attorney Douglas Zolkind told the court, Courthouse News reported.

据《法院新闻》报道,美国律师道格拉斯·佐尔金德在法庭上表示:“我们认为可能会有替代起诉,但目前还没有做出决定。”

Giuliani, who once led the Southern District of New York, has denied wrongdoing.

曾领导纽约南区的朱利安尼否认自己有不当行为。

House Democrats have not yet indicated whether they plan to call Parnas to speak before the impeachment inquiry, although Parnas' New York-based defense attorney Joseph Bondy has been tweeting directly at them with the hashtag #LetLevSpeak.

众议院民主党人尚未表示他们是否计划在弹劾调查之前请帕纳斯发言,尽管帕纳斯驻纽约的辩护律师约瑟夫·邦迪一直在推特上直接以“让我们说话”为标签进行发文。
