Separately, both men were also indicted by federal prosecutors in New York on allegations of campaign finance violations. Both have pleaded not guilty.

As ABC News has previously reported, the House Intelligence Committee is already in possession of some audio and video recordings and photographs provided by Parnas, who, unlike Fruman, has been cooperating with House impeachment investigators since November.
