WASHINGTON, D.C. — New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft dined with President Trump and other government and business leaders at an event hosted by the Treasury Department on Monday in Washington, D.C.

Kraft, 78, is still facing two counts of a soliciting a prostitute at a Jupiter spa.

Pictures show the billionaire businessman sitting at the same table as Trump with International Monetary Fund Managing Director Christine Lagarde seated between them.

The dinner was hosted by Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin to honor the Amir of Qatar.

When Kraft was charged in February, Trump said it was "very sad" and he was "very surprised to see it," but said that Kraft had "proclaimed his innocence totally."

The NFL owner has pleaded not guilty but did issue a public apology for his actions.
