WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. President Donald Trump said on Thursday he does not know the two associates of his personal lawyer Rudolph Giuliani who were arrested, even if they are in a picture with him.
Two foreign-born Florida businessmen, who helped Giuliani investigate Democratic political rival Joe Biden, were charged in a scheme to illegally funnel Russian money to a pro-Trump election committee and other U.S. political candidates, prosecutors said on Thursday.
