Kremlin Had No Contacts Regarding Construction of Trump Tower in Moscow - Peskov
Jan 23, 2019, 00:59
President Donald Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani on Monday walked back comments he made about discussions Trump had with his former personal attorney about a real estate project in Moscow during the presidential election campaign.
He declined to name the two sources that told him of Trump's instructions to Cohen to lie to Congress about when the negotiations for Trump Tower Moscow ended.
The Moscow deal ultimately did not materialize, but Giuliani's remarks suggest that Trump's discussions about the project with Cohen may have dragged on until the election, raising new questions for congressional investigators looking into possible ties between the president and Russian Federation.
Trump said on Saturday that the BuzzFeedpiece was a "disgrace" to the U.S. as well as journalism.
The public first learned in the summer of 2017 that Cohen had been pursuing a deal to build a Trump Tower in Moscow even after his boss had begun to campaign for president.
"The President never (emphasis ours) spoke with Cohen about the congressional testimony", Giuliani told the New York Daily News, adding that any talks that occurred would have "happened between the lawyers [and] would have been part of the joint defense agreement".
Leopold, who describes himself as an "FOIA terrorist" on social media, has since published some important pieces, including a deep dive on the Russians' alleged targeted killing campaign against their enemies and early reports on the Trump Tower Moscow project.
In any event, it took Giuliani a bit on Friday to respond to the report, and he dismissed it as categorically false, "totally phony" and fake news.
Negotiations for a Trump deal in Moscow occurred around the same time that the Russian government was interfering in the 2016 U.S. election.
"So anytime during that period they could've talked about it".
