PAST: It has been revealed that Chelsea Clinton's future father-in-law is a convicted fraudster.

Two Norwegian journalists face trespassing charges after they were arrested on the New York estate where Chelsea Clinton is expected to get married. 

New York state troopers charged Thomas Bjorn Nilsson and Kjerste Sortland with a violation Wednesday. Police say they were on the Astor Estate in this town along the Hudson River 145km north of New York City. 

Media reports indicate Chelsea Clinton, the daughter of former President Bill Clinton and Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, will marry Marc Mezvinsky on July 31 at the estate. 

Helje Solberg, managing editor for Verdens Gang in Oslo, says police overreacted when Nilsson and Sortland tried to take pictures of the gate and says they were not on the property. 

New York State Police Major Michael A. Kopy says they were.
