Moscow 'Trump Tower' Talks Lasted Through 2016, Lawyer Says

BuzzFeed, buzz off Robert Mueller disputes Buzzfeed report on Donald Trump

Giuliani also that it was possible that Trump had spoken to his former lawyer Michael Cohen before giving testimony before Congress.

President Donald Trump's attorney Rudy Giuliani, as he has often done during his representation of the president, has gone public to set things straight after making a statement on cable news that raised eyebrows.

Times reporter Maggie Haberman tweeted out the statement Trump's attorney put out "clarifying" his comments to the newspaper. However, Giuliani added that Trump can't say definitely when the proposal was shelved and answered a written question from Mueller to that effect. "My comments did not represent the actual timing or circumstances of any such discussions". "If there's ever a trial on all of this, I think a whole day of the trial will just be jurors watching old Rudy Giuliani tapes and clips because the number of times he is essentially confirming Trump lied through his teeth about doing business with Russian Federation in that period ― it's just astounding".

With this statement by Giuliani (which, who knows, he might contradict by day's end), we now have four different versions that the president and his representatives have told about his pursuit of a Moscow deal during the campaign.

"The fact of the investigation has nearly insulated Trump because we're all waiting for that final report, the package that's going to tie all these dots together, as opposed to, as you say, reacting to stunning revelations one by one that should be president-ending, term-ending".

After Giuliani's latest walk back, Himes said it seems like the main point of what Giuliani does is muddying the waters and getting people to question whether there's "any knowable truth", with the eventual goal of casting doubt on Robert Mueller's final report.

It remains unclear when or if discussions about building Trump Tower Moscow officially ended. "Each mistake has been a gift to the president, providing fodder for his case that any unflattering reporting about him amounts to 'fake news, ' and that the special counsel's investigation is nothing but a 'witch hunt'".

"It's our understanding that they went on throughout 2016", he added. Cohen pleaded guilty to lying to Congress by saying that he had abandoned the project in January 2016 even though prosecutors say he actually continued pursuing it into that June.

On Thursday, he issued a statement aimed at clarifying a TV interview from the night before in which he appeared to leave open the possibility of collusion between Russian Federation and members of Trump's presidential campaign.

Giuliani's suggestion that dialogue about the Trump Tower project could have stretched into the fall of 2016 extends the timeline for negotiations well beyond what the president has publicly acknowledged. "So any time during that period, they could have talked about it", he said. "There are no documents to reflect anything about this transaction other than a letter of intent".
