President Donald Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani is now acknowledging that Trump did in fact sign a letter of intent to develop a Trump Tower in Moscow, just days after Giuliani claimed that Trump never signed it.
But Giuliani argued during an interview with New York Daily News that the letter is “bullshit because it didn’t go anywhere.”
“That was the end of it,” Giuliani told the local New York City paper. “It means nothing but an expression of interest that means very little unless it goes to a contract and it never did.”
After Giuliani claimed on Sunday that Trump never signed a letter of intent for the project, CNN obtained a copy of the letter, which contained Trump’s signature.
In the interview with the Daily News, Giuliani refused to acknowledge that he told CNN Sunday that “no one signed the letter.”
“I don’t think I said nobody signed it,” Giuliani told the Daily News.
The Trump Tower project has become increasingly relevant in recent weeks after it was revealed in Michael Cohen’s sentencing documents that Cohen lied to Congress about how long he was working on the Moscow development for the Trump Organization. He told Congress he ended work on the project in January 2016, but later admitted he pursued it as late as June 2016.
