On Sunday, Rudy Giuliani said talks about a Trump Tower project in Moscow were held as late as October or November 2016. On Monday, he distanced himself from those comments, saying President Trump doesn't recall whether discussions went on through the election. Giuliani is one of Trump's lawyers, and told CNN on Monday because no records were kept of the discussions, no one knows when they ended. He also released a statement saying he was just speculating based on a hypothetical situation, and his remarks were "not based on conversations I had with the president." Trump's former personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, was in charge of the Moscow project, and in November, he pleaded guilty to lying about how long he was in negotiations over the deal; he originally said discussions ended in January 2016, but later said they went through June 2016.
