The special counsel's statement said "BuzzFeed's description of specific statements to the Special Counsel's Office, and characterization of documents and testimony obtained by this office, regarding Michael Cohen's Congressional testimony are not accurate". "So what if he talked to him about it?"

"It's our understanding that they went on throughout 2016", Giuliani told NBC's Meet the Press.

The remarks also came amid fallout from a disputed report by BuzzFeed News that alleged that evidence showed that Trump had personally directed Cohen to lie to Congress about how long talks about the proposed project had overlapped with Trump's campaign for president.

That was an apparent reversal from Wednesday's television appearance in which he said, "I never said there was no collusion between the campaign or between people in the campaign". But on CNN he acknowledged the possibility that Trump and Cohen might have discussed Cohen's testimony, saying that while he had no knowledge of such a conversation, he wasn't ruling it out and that it'd be "perfectly normal" anyway.

"I would think most voters, Democrat, Republican, independent, you name it, that knowing that the Republican nominee was actively trying to do business in Moscow, that the Republican nominee, at least at one point, had offered, if he built this building, Vladimir Putin, a three-penthouse apartment, and if those negotiations were ongoing while - up 'til the election, I think that's a relevant fact for voters to know", Warner said.

"Through November 2016? Through November, right?" The president himself, thanked Mr Mueller, telling reporters: "It was a total phoney story, and I appreciate the special counsel coming out with a statement last night".

Giuliani responded that Trump "answered those questions fully, and I think to the satisfaction of the special counsel".

Giuliani then continued: "The president also remembers - yeah, probably up - could be up to as far as October, November. The Americans and the USA president himself know this better", Peskov told reporters, asked whether the Kremlin had contacts with Trump's team about the Trump Tower project in Moscow. "So any time during that period, they could have talked about it", he said. "But the president's recollection of them is that the thing had petered out quite a bit".

"I haven't played a lot of matches in the past year , especially against top players", Sharapova said after the match. Sharapova, the Australian Open champion in 2008, headed into the match with a 6-4 lead in their previous meetings.

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".

"According to the answer that he gave, it would have covered all the way up to - covered up to November, 2016".

Former federal prosecutor Mimi Rocah said Monday on MSNBC's "Deadline: White House" that all the emerging evidence about President Donald Trump's ties to Russian Federation and his apparent efforts to obstruct justice makes her believe that there is a criminal conspiracy at the center of issue.
