Rudy Giuliani indicated Sunday that President Trump's former lawyer Michael Cohen may have been discussing a possible Trump Tower Moscow development until November 2016.
Cohen last month accused himself of letting the congress plan on building a Trump property in Moscow, plans that he originally said were scrapped in January 2016, but actually continued well in the presidential campaign.
