"There were no texts, there were no emails, and the president never told him to lie".

"And even as Trump told the public he had no business deals with Russian Federation, the sources said Trump and his children Ivanka and Donald Trump Jr. received regular, detailed updates about the real estate development from Cohen, whom they put in charge of the project", the report added. Saying that the talks ended in January 2016 was a lie, Cohen admitted. All of those statements were false, according to court papers. Those statements turned out to be lies.

The public first learned in the summer of 2017 that Cohen had been pursuing a deal to build a Trump Tower in Moscow even after his boss had begun to campaign for president.

Cormier admitted that they weren't "in that room" and don't actually know the wording used in their infamous claim about what Trump said to Cohen, just the essence of its meaning. A presentencing memo from Cohen's lawyer, Guy Petrillo, said Cohen had made the statement out of a desire to be loyal and consistent with Trump's wishes to minimize his involvement.

Cohen, who has been sentenced to three years in prison for lying to lawmakers, is expected to testify before the Democratic-led House Oversight Committee on February 7.

Trump said on Saturday that the BuzzFeed piece was a "disgrace" to the U.S. as well as journalism.

After the story was published, Mueller's office, which has been tight-lipped about its investigation of Russia's role in the 2016 election and whether Trump's campaign colluded with Moscow, issued a statement denying the bombshell report. BuzzFeed stands by the story and asks for clarity from Mueller's team.

In an interview with ABC News' Chief Anchor George Stephanopoulos in December, Giuliani said Trump was having conversations with his former personal attorney Michael Cohen about the project up until and around November 2016. The next day, Giuliani walks back his comments, saying they "did not represent the actual timing or circumstances of any discussions".

Giuliani's suggestion that dialogue about the Trump Tower project could have stretched into the fall of 2016 extends the timeline for negotiations well beyond what the president has publicly acknowledged.

Although Giuliani downplayed the project, there were discussions with others about it and also a discussion with Trump about going to Moscow after the Republican National Convention to help push the deal. "What I was talking about was, if he had those conversations, they would not be criminal".
