Trump discussed Russian Federation tower deal well into 2016, Giuliani says

US president Rudy Giuliani looks on before the US president announces his Supreme Court nominee in the East Room of the White House

Giuliani told the Times that the president told him that conversations about the project were "going on from the day I announced to the day I won". He said Monday that his remarks about discussions between Trump and Michael Cohen "bout a potential Trump Moscow "project" were hypothetical and not based on conversations I had with the president".

Speaking to Lauren Ingraham, he said networks should instead be praising Trump for the job he is doing as President.

Trump said in November that he saw nothing wrong with running for president and pursuing a business deal simultaneously. The reporters did not bother to include the key claims from their unnamed sources - like that the allegation was supposedly confirmed "through interviews with multiple witnesses from the Trump Organization and internal company emails, text messages, and a cache of other documents" or that not only did Trump know about the ongoing Moscow real estate negotiations, both Ivanka and Donald Trump Jr. were receiving "regular, detailed updates" from Cohen.

I got a hold of the transcript of Giuliani's sit-down with CNN's Jake Tapper on "State of the Union" on Sunday, and picked out some of the most notable - and newsworthy lines. "The Americans and the USA president himself know this better", Peskov told reporters, asked whether the Kremlin had contacts with Trump's team about the Trump Tower project in Moscow.

Laquan Mcdonald: Officer jailed for shooting teen 16 times
Laquan McDonald was 17 years old when he was fatally shot 16 times by Chicago police officer Jason Van Dyke . The veteran officer's sentencing will be the latest in a series of developments linked to McDonald's killing.

Leopold, who describes himself as an "FOIA terrorist" on social media, has since published some important pieces, including a deep dive on the Russians' alleged targeted killing campaign against their enemies and early reports on the Trump Tower Moscow project.

According to the report, those two officials claim that the negotiations ended months before they did so as to hide Trump's involvement. "Our answers cover until the election", Giuliani told NBC's "Meet The Press." "What I was talking about was, if he had those conversations, they would not be criminal".

"Every prosecutor knows that when you stand up and give an opening statement, you want to certainly highlight all the incriminating evidence that makes it seem beyond a reasonable doubt that the defendant committed the crime, but even more importantly, you want to draw the sting of any really bad evidence that cuts against your theory of the prosecution", he explained. The whole thing is problematic for them, though, and maybe Giuliani doesn't understand this, that it's all one big conspiracy....

Giuliani argued on Monday, as he did a day prior to CNN, that Trump viewed the project as insignificant because it consisted at the time of only an unfunded letter of intent. He said in February 2017: "I have nothing to do with Russian Federation".
