Giuliani Takes Back Comments About Trump Tower Moscow Talks

Rudy Giuliani retracted some of his recent comments following an interview on NBC's "Meet the Press" Sunday.


Giuliani Takes Back Comments About Trump Tower Moscow Talks

President Donald Trump's attorney, Rudy Giuliani, took back comments he recently made on  NBC's "Meet the Press" .

On Monday, Giuliani  told CNN  the president has no "recollection" of discussions about a proposed Trump Tower Moscow project.  While appearing on "Meet the Press" Sunday, Giuliani, said talks to construct a Trump Tower in Moscow may have extended throughout the 2016 presidential campaign.

Giuliani said, "Probably could be up to as far as October, November ... But the president's recollection of it is that the thing had petered out quite a bit." This is the real estate project that President Donald Trump's former personal lawyer Michael Cohen pleaded guilty to  lying to Congress  about.

He originally said negotiations ended in January 2016, but on Monday, he said it is unclear when negotiations ended because no records were kept.

Both the special counsel's office and lawmakers have been looking into the Trump Tower Moscow discussions as part of their separate investigations into Russian interference in the 2016 election.

One of those lawmakers — Sen.

Mark Warner, who's the top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee — also appeared on "Meet the Press" Sunday and said the timeline provided by Giuliani is "big news." It's not the first instance that Giuliani's mentioned this timeline, though.

He  told ABC's "This Week"  back in December, Cohen may have been in talks about the Moscow project up to November 2016.

In both interviews, Giuliani indicated that the president told Robert Mueller's team that the discussions might have lasted that long.
