BuzzFeed journalist: ‘Our reporting is going to be borne out’

  • Giuliani So what if Cohen spoke to Trump about testimony

"We had to report it and attribute it to BuzzFeed, and as I said on our air, we don't know whether or not this story is accurate, contextual, true, and it needs to be run down", he said.

The timeline of the discussions of the potential Trump Tower project in Moscow is a central component of the ongoing legal case that has ensnared Trump's former personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, who pleaded guilty last November to lying to Congress about the matter. Giuliani then said that even if Trump did speak to Cohen it's a "so what" situation.

Yes, Jeff. That's exactly it.

But Special Counsel Robert Mueller's office, which is investigating Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, including any links or coordination between the Russian government and individuals associated with the Trump campaign, took the extraordinary step of issuing a statement that challenged the accuracy of the report, but didn't provide details. Mueller's office said the outlet'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". "But the president's recollection of them is that the thing had petered out quite a bit".

"Through November 2016? Through November, right? Why, two years after the fact, are we just learning this fact now when there's been this much inquiry?"




In an interview with ABC News' Chief Anchor George Stephanopoulos in December, Giuliani said Trump was having conversations with his former personal attorney Michael Cohen about the project up until and around November 2016.

Warner, whose panel is conducting its own Russia probe, said the possibility that Trump pursued a business deal with Russia until as late as the 2016 election increases the need to know about his dealings as president with his Russian counterpart, Vladimir Putin.

"The president couldn't tell you the exact day it started and the exact day it ended; he remembers it started and he remembers it ended", Giuliani said, but nothing more.

We'll try to sort through the changing stories about the Trump Organization's efforts to put together a deal to build a Trump Tower in Moscow while Trump was running for president, but here's what's most vital to understand: You don't have to believe the absolute worst version of this scandal, where every accusation reveals an actual crime, to admit that Trump was and is both deeply corrupt and utterly dishonest. Before that, he is scheduled to again appear before politicians on 7 February when he is set to will testify publicly to members of the House oversight committee.

The president has provided written answers to questions from Mueller on the Moscow project, according to Giuliani. So anytime during that period they could've talked about it.
