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.
