    ...I mean Lev and Igor:

    President Donald Trump has had at least 10 encounters with Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman, the indicted associates of Rudy Giuliani the President has adamantly claimed not to know.

    Prosecutors allege Parnas and his business partner Fruman illegally funded Republican politicians and campaigns with money from foreign nationals in attempts to buy influence. That pair are also said to have aided Giuliani, the President's personal attorney, in efforts to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden related to Ukraine.

    Since their indictment, Trump has stated publicly that he doesn't know Parnas and Fruman.

    The interactions, of which many new details are being reported here for the first time, include VIP photos at campaign events, attendance at high-dollar fundraisers and a retreat. They also include a pre-inauguration gala for high-dollar donors, an intimate dinner with the President and photos at the White House Hanukkah dinner with the President, Vice President and Giuliani.
    On seven of the occasions, Trump posed for photos with either Fruman or Parnas.
    The details raise new questions about Parnas and Fruman, including how Parnas gained VIP access to inaugural events and how Fruman was able to take a picture with Trump before a 2016 event with no record of donating to the campaign.
    Lawyers for both men either did not respond to CNN's requests or declined to comment. Additionally, both the White House and the Trump campaign did not comment. Rudy Giuliani did not answer questions about his connections to the pair.

    We are not now that strength which in old days
    Moved earth and heaven; that which we are we are; One equal temper of heroic hearts
    Made weak by time and fate but strong in will
    To strive to seek to find and not to yield.
