Two foreign-born businessmen associated with U.S. President Donald Trump's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani (L) have been arrested on federal charges that they conspired to funnel foreign money to U.S. political candidates, authorities said on Thursday.

Giuliani has said the businessmen, Lev Parnas (R) and Igor Fruman (not pictured), had been helping him as he sought to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden, a leading Democratic contender in the 2020 presidential election.

John Dowd, a lawyer for Parnas and Fruman declined comment. Giuliani did not respond to requests for comment. Jay Sekulow, a lawyer for the president, said neither the president nor his campaign was aware of the alleged scheme.

The following lays out some of the allegations against Parnas, a Ukrainian-born businessman, and Fruman, a real estate investor originally from Belarus.

In disclosure forms submitted to the U.S. Federal Election Commission, Parnas and Fruman listed the $325,000 contribution to the pro-Trump group as coming from a business called Global Energy Producers (GEP). Prosecutors say GEP was a shell company with "no real business."

The indictment says the efforts were conducted at least in part at the request of at least one Ukrainian government officials.
