Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” former New York City mayor and President Donald Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani said President Donald Trump was involved in talks about a proposed Trump Tower project in Russia until November 2016.
When asked about Trump’s conversations with his former lawyer Michael Cohen on a potential Moscow tower, Giuliani said, “Well It’s our understanding that went on throughout 2016 — there weren’t a lot of them, but there were conversations. Can’t be sure of the exact dates.”
He continued, “Probably up to — could be up to as far as October, November. Our answers cover until the election. Any time during that period they could have talked about it.”
He added, “They sent a letter of intent in. They didn’t even know where to send it. They knew so little about it. They finally got it straightened out. Then they abandoned the project. That’s about as much as he can remember of it because, remember, 2015, 2016, he’s running against 16 people for president of the United States. And I know that. I was with him for like five months. All his concentration was 100 percent on running for president.”
