Case of Giuliani’s associates Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman

"I have well over 9 GB of data," Zolkind adds. He moves onto evidence pursuant to the search warrants, on emails, iCloud, and physical premises.
Zolkind: "Once a device is extracted, once we have it in our possession available to review," they will provide the evidence to the defendant associated with it. "Certainly, there is additional stuff that's coming."
Oetken asks the prosecutor if it's true there were no wiretaps involved in the case. Zolkind replies that's correct. (There weren't.)
Zolkind estimates that the extraction of the devices and turning over for discovery should take 60 days. Oetken notes that would be early February. That's not including other evidence not yet in prosecutors' possession.
Parnas' attorney Joseph Bondy says that they cannot set a motion schedule without the discovery. Fruman's attorney Todd Blanche hits a similar point. "I'm concerned about the time it's going to take," Blanche says. "I don't know what the court should do."
"If it's not there, it's not there," Blanche continues, adding later. "I don't know why the delay of that long." Blanche notes that the government continues to investigate grand jury subpoenas that are out there.
"I don't want to keep kicking the can down the road until we get a trial date," Blanche said, asking the judge to put pressure on the FBI and the government to speed matters up.
David Correia's attorney William Harrington calls it unnecessary to delay trial until the government unlocks various devices, as they don't know what's on them. "They indicted the case prepared to go to trial based on the evidence they had, presumably," Harrington said.
