President Trump said to acknowledge talks about Moscow skyscraper continued through election night

Giuliani, President Trump's attorney, attempted Monday to clean up comments he made over the weekend asserting that discussions about a potential Trump Tower in Moscow stretched into as late as November 2016.

"The Times also reported that Trump had said discussions about the project in Moscow were "'going on from the day I announced to the day I won, '" attributing the quote to the former New York City mayor.

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 months longer than had been publicly known. I don't think, as a lawyer, I ever said anything that's untruthful.

In a follow-up statement, Giuliani said his comments were "hypothetical" and did not represent the "actual timing or circumstances of any discussions".

The fact that there were discussions for a Moscow project at any point during the campaign has undermined repeated denials from Trump that his company had any business dealings in Russian Federation or that he had anything to do with Russian Federation at all.

Trump has not expressed an inclination to dismiss Giuliani.

"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". "But the president can remember having conversations. about it".

Rudy Giuliani, President Trump's personal attorney who has been under fire for what was seen by some as missteps during recent TV interviews, may be dripping information about Trump to the public to lessen the shock when Special Counsel Robert Mueller releases his final report on his Russian collusion investigation, Andrew Napolitano, Fox News' senior judicial analyst said.

The president told confidants that Giuliani had "changed the headlines" for the worse and raised the possibility that Giuliani do fewer cable hits, at least for a while, according to the officials and Republicans. BuzzFeed said it stands by the reporting. So anytime during that period they could've talked about it.

"They have shot themselves in the foot time and time again, because they so desperately want this to be the truth, as opposed to saying, 'You know what?"

"I am afraid it will be on my gravestone". "And I think it's remarkable that we're two years after the fact and just discovering it today".

Giuliani then went on to walk back his earlier comment about his legacy amid more questioning from Chotiner, saying he does not reflect on the historical significance of his tenure. "But, if it is, so what do I care?"

Rep. Adam Schiff, a California Democrat and chairperson 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.
