Junior Blames Cohen For Trump Tower Moscow Deal

Giuliani, who has made a number of statements in recent days relating to the special counsel's Russian Federation investigation which he had to clarify or walk back, appeared to have inadvertently revealed that he has listened to conversations between Trump and Cohen discussing building a Trump Tower in Moscow.

Giuliani, in case you missed it over the weekend, told CNN's Jake Tapper that maybe Trump did or maybe Trump didn't talk to Michael Cohen before Cohen lied to Congress about the Moscow Project.

Mr. Giuliani declined to tell CNN what the president's legal team told Mr. Mueller's team.

US President Donald Trump had asked his long-time attorney Michael Cohen to lie to the Congress over negotiations to build a Trump Tower in Moscow, BuzzFeed News reported recently citing two federal law enforcement officials involved in a probe into the matter which has taken the country by storm.

But in an emailed statement on Monday Giuliani changed his story, saying: "My comments did not represent the actual timing or circumstances of any such discussions". But Trump had signed a nonbinding letter of intent on the project. Last May, Giuliani went on Sean Hannity's Fox News show and acknowledged that Trump repaid Cohen for hush money payments to Stormy Daniels, the porn star alleging an affair with Trump, a statement viewed then as a misstep but later perceived as an effort to minimize revelations about possible campaign finance violations. Cohen had previously claimed such discussions ended in January 2016 - ahead of the Iowa caucuses and the first votes being cast in the primaries.

Late past year, Cohen pleaded guilty to lying to Congress when he said that the project discussions had ended in January 2016.

The plans for Trump Tower Moscow included an architect's drawing of a glass obelisk 100 stories high that would be the tallest building in Europe and branded multiple times with Donald Trump's logo, it was revealed on Tuesday.

- September and October 2015: As a Trump Organization lawyer, Michael Cohen receives a proposal for a hotel, office and residential building in Russian Federation that comes to be known as the Trump Tower Moscow project. He echoed Kremlin talking points on key foreign policy topics like the ongoing conflict in Ukraine, the usefulness of the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation alliance and the fight against ISIS in Syria.

Negotiations for a Trump deal in Moscow occurred around the same time that the Russian government was interfering in the 2016 United States election.

It has been a rollercoaster couple of days for Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani. "Said he had conversations with him but the president didn't hide this", Giuliani said. He added at the time that the conversations could have been in June or July 2016.

The interview with The New Yorker was published the same day that Giuliani had to clarify other comments he made regarding Trump and Cohen about the planned building of a Trump Tower in Russian Federation. "And the president had no conversations".
