Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani suggested on Thursday that the criminal indictment of his two associates connected to President Donald Trump’s Ukraine pressure campaign is some kind of conspiracy, according to Fox News.

Fox News reporter Catherine Herridge said on air that she had spoken to Giuliani after the two associates, Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman, were arrested on campaign finance charges.

According to Herridge, Giuliani found the timing of the unsealing of the indictment “extremely suspect” (in Giuliani’s words) and that he had “other pertinent facts he will soon be able to reveal” (in Herridge’s words).

Herridge also reported that the lawyer believes the indictment is tied to his investigations into the debunked conspiracy theory of 2020 candidate Joe Biden’s dealings in Ukraine.

CNN correspondent Jim Acosta reported that Jay Sekulow, Trump’s other personal lawyer, said the criminal case isn’t connected to the President.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.

Sincerely,
TPM Staff
