Two men linked to Trump's lawyer Giuliani arrested

Two men associated with U.S. President Donald Trump's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani have been arrested over violations of campaign finance laws.

A federal court filing in New York on Thursday (October 10) stated the suspects, Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman conspired to "funnel foreign money to candidates for federal and state office." A lawyer for the two men declined comment on the charges.

Parnas, shown here with Giuliani, and Fruman reportedly introduced Giuliani to current and former prosecutors in Ukraine.

Both men reportedly worked with Giuliani to pressure Ukrainian officials to investigate Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden and Biden's son over their past dealings in that country.

Giuliani has been a leading advocate of investigating the Democratic front-runner, but has presented no evidence of wrong-doing.

The arrests of Fruman and Parnas come as the Democratic-led U.S. House of Representatives has launched an impeachment inquiry of President Donald Trump.

The core charge of the inquiry concerns Trump's request in a July telephone call for Ukraine's president to investigated the Bidens.

A whistleblower report warned that Trump seemed to be soliciting foreign interference in the 2020 election.

Trump has denied doing anything improper and tried to paint the whistleblower and the impeachment proceedings as a political sham.

The indictment charges Fruman and Parnas and two other men with allegedly forming a shell company to illegally funnel political campaign contributions to Super-PACs and to at least one member of Congress.

A spokesperson for the Manhattan federal prosecutor said Parnas Fruman are expected to appear in a federal court in Virginia later on Thursday.
