WASHINGTON, Oct 10 (Reuters) - Two men associated with U.S. President Donald Trump's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani have been arrested over violations of campaign finance laws, a spokesman for the Manhattan U.S. Attorney's office said on Thursday.

The two Florida businessmen, Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman, are expected to appear in a federal court in Virginia later on Thursday, the Wall Street Journal reported, citing people familiar with the matter.

Giuliani and John Dowd, the lawyer for the two men, did not immediately respond to a request for comment. (Reporting by Karen Freifeld; Writing by Makini Brice and Susan Heavey; Editing by Hugh Lawson)
