Giuliani: Trump Talked About Building Moscow Tower During 2016 Campaign

Giuliani So what if Cohen spoke to Trump about testimony

President Donald Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani left open Sunday the possibility that Trump and former personal attorney Michael Cohen might have discussed Cohen's congressional testimony.

The unusual situation is complicated by the fact that the United States has imposed a series of sanctions on Russian Federation due to alleged meddling in the 2016 U.S. presidential election with Robert Mueller investigating those claims, as well as allegations of collusion between Trump's campaign team and Moscow.

"Buzzfeed's description of specific statements to the Special Counsel's Office, and characterization of documents and testimony obtained by this office, regarding Michael Cohen's Congressional testimony are not accurate", Peter Carr, a spokesperson for Mueller's office, said in a statement that came out hours after BuzzFeed's story was published.

Guiliani said it's his understanding that conversations between Trump and Michael Cohen continued as late as October or November of that year.

Rep. Adam Schiff, a California Democrat and chairman of the House intelligence committee, said the panel planned to investigate why Cohen made false statements to Congress and determine what exactly Cohen and Trump might have discussed about his testimony.

Giuliani, a former ny mayor, said that Michael Cohen, Trump's former personal attorney, "would have a much better recollection of [the Moscow negotiations] than the president".

Told of the special counsel's failure to find support for the story, Mittenthal, the BuzzFeed spokesman, said, "Our high-level law enforcement sources, who have helped corroborate months of accurate reporting on the Trump Tower Moscow deal and its aftermath, have told us otherwise". BuzzFeed said it continues to stand by the story.

Giuliani said as far as he knew, Trump had not had discussions with Cohen where Trump "told him or counseled him to lie".

Cormier said, "I'm solid, my sources are solid". We're going to get inside the room where it happened and bear it out. We're going to get inside the room where it happened and bare it out.

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.

Carr declined to comment for this story beyond the special counsel's office statement issued Friday.

On Thursday night, Buzzfeed News posted a scoop that industry insiders were quick to compare to the work of Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein and hailed as a "smoking gun" that could buttress the case to impeach President Trump.

Smith attempted to shift blame to the special counsel, saying "it has not been our experience that the special counsel has been forthcoming with information".
