The fact that there were discussions for a Moscow project at any point during the campaign has undermined repeated denials from Trump that his company had any business dealings in Russian Federation or that he had anything to do with Russian Federation at all.

Some of Trump's allies have suggested that Giuliani be barred from evening interviews because of concerns that he was going on TV after drinking, according to three Republicans close to the White House.
In remarks to the New York Daily News, Giuliani walked back a CNN interview Sunday in which he said he did not know if Trump talked with Cohen before his 2017 Capitol Hill testimony, but added: "So, what if he talked to him about it?"
Trump officials had initially described the project as the province of Cohen and simply in the discussion phase. Saying that the talks ended in January 2016 was a lie, Cohen admitted. All of those statements were false, according to court papers. Mark R. Warner (Va.), the top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee, reacted to the shifting timeline, saying it was "news to me" and adding: "That is big news". He says the same during testimony before the committee.
Cohen says he lied to minimize the public understanding of Trump's Russian Federation ties, to try to limit the various Russian Federation investigations and to be consistent with Trump's "political messaging".
Negotiations for a Trump deal in Moscow occurred around the same time that the Russian government was interfering in the 2016 USA election.
Cohen, who has been sentenced to three years in prison for lying to lawmakers, is expected to testify before the Democratic-led House Oversight Committee on February 7. He denied the report from Buzzfeed that Trump told his former lawyer Michael Cohento lie about skyscraper negotiations to Congress but said the two men may have talked before Cohen testified. "Rudy Giuliani: He lied for Trump". BuzzFeed stands by the story and asks for clarity from Mueller's team.
Giuliani also had to explain comments he made in a seperate interview with CNN's Chris Cuomo the previous week in which he appeared to suggest that Trump's associates may have colluded with Russian Federation during the 2016 election.
After the report was released Thursday, Mueller spokesman Peter Carr issued a statement disputing the story. But on CNN he acknowledged the possibility that Trump and Cohen might have discussed Cohen's testimony, saying that while he had no knowledge of such a conversation, he wasn't ruling it out and that it'd be "perfectly normal" anyway. Giuliani said Trump did not really remember when the conversations took place, but was comfortable with a general answer that Trump provided Mueller, which "would have covered all the way up to November of - covered all the way up to November 2016".
