Following the unsealing of the indictments of Ukrainians Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman last week for campaign finance violations over alleged schemes to buy political influence on behalf of foreigners, Trump said he did not know Giuliani's associates, Parnas or his business partner and co-defendant, Igor Fruman.

Parnas, 47, told the Washington Post that he sold Trump Organization condos while Trump's father, Fred, was still running the business.


Trump fibbed ... again. He's known this dude who, like Trump friend Felix Sater has ties to Russian organized crime, for a long time.

... 2017 PIC (L-R): VP Pence, Fruman, Parnas, Trump, and Giuliani ...

That's quite the collection of Trump admin folk.

It's interesting how Mr Giuliani has such a seemingly critical senior role in the Trump administration, yet he is not even a government employee.

Is Mr Giuliani working for Pres Trump's personal interests, or for the interest of the American people and the Constitution?
