Lev Parnas, a henchman of Rudy Giuliani who aided Trump’s personal attorney in pressuring the Ukrainian government, has a history of making death threats and associating with fraudsters, according to Politico.
A news report from Politico revealed that a restraining order was filed by Parnas’s former landlord, back in 2008, that alleged that Parnas had threatened to kill him after he asked him to vacate the apartment that he was renting.
The complaint detailed that Parnas told his landlord, “If you call the cops, they are not going to find you ever.”
The two men got into another argument a few days later, but Parnas pulled out a gun and held it to his landlord’s head. “This is my last warning to you,” he said.
Although the landlord could not produce concrete evidence of being threatened, police seized several weapons in Parnas’s possession, including a .38 revolver, a 9mm pistol, an automatic pistol, and a .40-caliber Glock pistol.
