President Donald Trump signed a letter of intent to pursue the development of a Trump Tower in Moscow, CNN reported, contradicting statements made by his lawyer over the weekend.
During his show on Tuesday night, Chris Cuomo shared the contents of the letter, which preceded discussions for the Moscow tower. The letter is dated Oct. 28, 2015 and was signed by Trump. Giuliani told CNN over the weekend that “no one signed” the letter.
“It is signed by Donald J. Trump. How do I know? Well, because we’ve been told it was by his lawyer,” Cuomo said.
The private dealings associated with the possible Trump Tower Moscow have become increasingly significant in recent weeks, after it was revealed that Trump’s former attorney Michael Cohen was working on the project as late as June 2016. That comes in contrast with statements Cohen made to Congress– that he ceased work on the project in January 2016.
