Giuliani tries to clean up comments about Trump Tower Moscow

Giuliani tries to clean up comments about Trump Tower Moscow

On Friday, BuzzFeed's story published the previous day claiming US President Donald Trump directed his former lawyer, Michael Cohen, to lie to Congress about when talks on building Trump Tower Moscow ended, was denounced by the Office of Special Counsel as "not accurate". "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", spokesman Peter Carr says in a statement. Since much of this planning, by Giuliani's own admission, overlapped with Trump's 2016 campaign for president, it provides a potential motive for why the Trump team might not have objected to Russian Federation interfering in the election. BuzzFeed said it stands by its reporting.

Trump's discussions with Cohen about the Moscow project - regardless of when they ended - happened while Trump cozied up to Russian Federation with his rhetoric on the campaign trail.

During his interview with the New Yorker on Monday, Giuliani said that, "as a lawyer", he did not believe he had ever said anything untruthful and claimed he has "a sense of ethics that is as high as anybody you can imagine". By Sunday, Giuliani was saying the Trump-Cohen talks didn't happen, but even if they did it's "totally normal". "I don't know if it reflects that he isn't talking to the president or he is and the president continues to change his story, which we have seen in other aspects during the investigation, so, either could be true". Cohen pleaded guilty to lying to Congress by saying that he had abandoned the project in January 2016 even though prosecutors say he actually continued pursuing it into that June. "So any time during that period, they could have talked about it", he said.

"According to the answers that he gave, it would have covered all the way up to - covered up to November 2016".

It is important for President Donald Trump's legal and political position that Trump Tower Moscow be painted as a plan that wasn't that serious - just a proposal that never advanced beyond offhand discussions.

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.

Absolutely, absolutely. Congress has as a- has a fundamental interest in two things first in getting to the bottom of why a witness came before us and lied and who else was knowledgeable that this was a lie.
