President Donald Trump's personal attorney Rudy Giuliani is walking back comments he has made about the timeline of the Trump Organization's "Moscow Project".

Trump's former attorney, Michael Cohen, has pleaded guilty to lying to Congress in 2017 by saying he had abandoned the Trump Tower project in January 2016 even though prosecutors say he actually pursued it into June.

Then, hours later in an interview with The New Yorker, Giuliani raised eyebrows again when he seemed to suggest he had listened to tapes of Trump and Cohen that had not previously been discussed. "There are no entries or phone logs" that indicated specifics, he added.

"Because I have been through all the tapes, I have been through all the texts, I have been through all the emails, and I knew none existed", he said.

But now, one of the Samsung apps seems to have indirectly confirmed one of the features of the upcoming Galaxy S10 smartphone. Rumours suggest a Snapdragon 855 processor with a choice of 8GB or 12GB of RAM and up to a massive 1TB of on-board storage.

"The president never spoke with Cohen about the congressional testimony", Giuliani told Daily News, asserting he had confirmed that with previous members of Trump's legal team. "'Rudy Giuliani: He lied for Trump, '" the president's attorney told the publication. The former New York City mayor, who frequently speaks directly to the president, is Trump's outside counsel and works in a different orbit than White House officials, who are still left to play damage control after some of Giuliani's wilder interviews.

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.

President Trumps former lawyer Michael Cohen exits the US Federal Court on April 16, 2018, in Lower Manhattan, New York.

The plans for Trump Tower Moscow included an architect's drawing of a glass obelisk 100 stories high that would be the tallest building in Europe and branded multiple times with Donald Trump's logo, it was revealed on Tuesday. Giuliani said Trump did not really remember when the conversations took place, but was comfortable with a general answer that Trump provided Mueller, which "would have covered all the way up to November of - covered all the way up to November 2016". "It never got to anything concrete".

Patriots beat Chiefs to join Rams in Super Bowl
The Rams (15-3) will be appearing in its first Super Bowl since the 2001 season, when the "Greatest Show on Turf" was still in St. They did have two interceptions but in the end, Brady still threw for 348 yards in leading his team to victory in overtime.

"What we do know from the special counsel is that Michael Cohen has shared information about core matters of the Russian investigation that he learned from people associated with the Trump Organization, the business organization".

He concluded by saying the Moscow project "was in the earliest stage and did not advance beyond a free non-binding letter of intent".

Late past year, Cohen pleaded guilty to lying to Congress when he said that the project discussions had ended in January 2016. Prior to this weekend at least, Trump had backed Giuliani because he understood the collusion story to be a "messaging battle, and Rudy much of the time has been a very effective messenger", according to a White House aide speaking to Politico. "What I was talking about was, if he had those conversations, they would not be criminal".

That statement, which suggested that the Trump Organization was engaged in business dealings with Russian Federation up to and beyond the election, ignited a firestorm and then an abrupt walk-back from Giuliani.

But others are also said to be at least somewhat interested, including the Miami Heat, Detroit Pistons and New Orleans Pelicans. Anthony was traded by Oklahoma City to Atlanta in July, a move that preceded the Hawks releasing him to sign with the Rockets.

Trump insisted repeatedly throughout the presidential campaign that he had no business dealings in Russian Federation.
