NEW YORK/WASHINGTON, Sept 17 (Reuters) - Federal prosecutors said on Thursday they had filed additional charges against Lev Parnas, a one-time associate of President Donald Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani, who was already facing campaign-finance related charges.


Prosecutors said they had now charged Parnas and an associate, David Correia, with conspiring to defraud investors in an insurance company they operated. Prosecutors said a superseding indictment also includes fresh campaign finance law violations. (Reporting by Jonathan Stempel and Mark Hosenball Editing by Chris Reese)
