In the statement, he said "there was no collusion by President Trump in any way, shape or form" and that he had "no knowledge of any collusion by any of the thousands of people who worked on the campaign".

- August 28, 2017: Cohen submits to Congress a two-page letter about the Trump Tower Moscow deal, saying the project ended in January 2016, that he only discussed it three times with Trump, that he never considered traveling to Russia or asking Trump to travel there, and that he did not recall having contact with the Russian government about the proposal.

Donald Trump Jr accused the media of "trying to subvert democracy" as he launched a blistering attack in the wake of Buzzfeed's claims that his father told Michael Cohen to lie to Congress.

Cohen pleaded guilty in November to charges he lied to Congress when he testified that the discussions ended in January 2016.

The Moscow deal ultimately did not materialize but Giuliani's remarks suggest that Trump's discussions about the project with Cohen may have dragged on months longer than had been publicly known.

But while Trump cast the move as a " common-sense compromise ", Democrats were quick to dismiss it as a "non-starter ". Mitch McConnell announced that he would bring the legislation to the Senate floor for a vote in the coming week.

But later, Cohen admitted in court that he made the false statements about the project "to be consistent with Individual 1's political messaging and to be loyal to Individual 1".

- December 12, 2018: Cohen is sentenced to three years in prison.

"He didn't have the conversations", Giuliani said of Trump.

'The same sources we used in the story are standing behind it and so are we'.

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.

Sarri said then that a new arrival could galvanise a team he has found "extremely hard to motivate". I accept his decision and retain my respect for him".

The Moscow deal ultimately did not materialize, but Giuliani's remarks suggest that Trump's discussions about the project with Cohen may have dragged on until the election, raising new questions for congressional investigators looking into possible ties between the president and Russian Federation.

But in an emailed statement on Monday Giuliani changed his story, saying: "My comments did not represent the actual timing or circumstances of any such discussions".

While his company secretly pursued a lucrative business deal in Moscow, Trump also publicly floated the possibility of lifting USA sanctions against Russian Federation.

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. I shouldn't say he had no conversations.
