Trump discussed Russian Federation tower deal well into 2016, Giuliani says

Giuliani says Cohen talked about Trump Tower in Moscow through 2016 election

"At a time when Donald Trump was running for president, he was negotiating or attempting to negotiate a deal that according to the special counsel would have made him hundreds of millions of dollars. that would have been the most lucrative deal Donald Trump ever made. and at the same time, during the same campaign, while he is denying these discussions are taking place, he is advocating relief from sanctions on Russian Federation that would make Putin billions and Russian Federation billions". He denied the report from Buzzfeed that Trump told his former lawyer Michael Cohen to lie about skyscraper negotiations to Congress but said the two men may have talked before Cohen testified. "The point is that the proposal was in the earliest stage and did not advance beyond a free non-binding letter of intent". They also discuss the possibility of Cohen meeting in mid-June with Russian President Vladimir Putin and Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev. All of those statements were false, according to court papers. He says the same during testimony before the committee. The BuzzFeed report took things a step further by alleging that Trump told Cohen to lie in September 2017.

Cormier admitted that they weren't "in that room" and don't actually know the wording used in their infamous claim about what Trump said to Cohen, just the essence of its meaning.

Mueller issued his first public statement in more than a year to repudiate the report, flatly asserting that BuzzFeed's story was "not accurate".

- January 18, 2019: In a rare public statement, a spokesman for special counsel Robert Mueller disputes the BuzzFeed report.

Trump's Lawyer Said There Were "No Plans" For Trump Tower Moscow. BuzzFeed stands by the story and asks for clarity from Mueller's team.

But on Monday, Giuliani walked back those comments, saying they were "hypothetical and not based on conversations I had with the president".

Although Giuliani downplayed the project, there were discussions with others about it and also a discussion with Trump about going to Moscow after the Republican National Convention to help push the deal.

Stelter grilled Smith about his editorial practices, barely letting him finish a sentence as he challenged Smith's decisions about sourcing and publishing, saying, "I'm concerned there wasn't enough requests for comment, enough detailed conversation with the Special Counsel's Office... why publish Thursday night instead of waiting for a third source or a fourth source, knowing the stakes of this story?"
