Giuliani says Cohen talked about Trump Tower in Moscow through 2016 election

Giuliani So what if Cohen spoke to Trump about testimony

Journalist Carl Bernstein, a CNN political analyst, told Stelter on Sunday that he thought it was "going to take time before we fully understand what the exact truth is here".

BuzzFeed's spokesman, Matt Mittenthal, issued a similar statement Saturday, even before Giuliani called for a leak probe.

Trump said in November that he saw nothing wrong with running for president and pursuing a business deal simultaneously.

On NBC's Meet the Press, Giuliani said Trump's team had told Mueller the discussions "went on throughout 2016" and continued "probably up to, could be up to, as far as October, November". It's spot-on, actually. To make things even more humiliating for the opposition media, it was the Mueller investigation, which has looked into whether the Trump campaign colluded with the Kremlin during the 2016 election for almost two years, who said the BuzzFeed story was inaccurate.

"We're trying to figure out how to parse the statement from the Mueller team, and what's happening now only behind the scenes at DOJ and the special counsel, but we're trying to get deeper inside the room where this happened", Cormier said. However, Giuliani added that Trump can't say definitely when the proposal was shelved and answered a written question from Mueller to that effect.

Rudy Giuliani said it would have been "perfectly normal" for Trump to discuss the testimony with Cohen, his former legal fixer who has admitted to lying to Congress about when the "Trump Tower Moscow" project ended.

He continued, "I've been a reporter for 20 years".

But Senator Mark Warner of Virginia, the top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee, said Giuliani's revelation that Trump continued to discuss a Trump Tower Moscow throughout the campaign was "big news" to him, and adds more grist to questions about the campaign's possible ties to Russian Federation. Mittenthal said, "We trust our sources over the organisation still run by Donald Trump's family".

Giuliani said on Sunday Cohen had a clearer oversight of the Russian Federation project than Trump, and that Trump had been too busy with his campaign to pay close attention.

"So anytime during that period they could've talked about it", Giuliani said.

Bernstein defended coverage of the BuzzFeed report by other news organizations.

Two people familiar with the matter said lawyers at the special counsel's office discussed the statement internally, rather than conferring with Justice Department leaders, for much of the day.

"We stand by our reporting and the sources who informed it, and we urge the Special Counsel to make clear what he's disputing", BuzzFeed editor Ben Smith said in response to the special counsel's statement.

"The guy driving this testimony was Michael Cohen", Giuliani told CNN.
