Trump Signed Letter Of Intent For Trump Tower Moscow Despite Giuliani’s Claims

Chris Cuomo Prime Time Dec. 18, 2018

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.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
