Trump's lawyer Giuliani: will he save or sink the president?Apparent admissions by Donald Trump’s lawyer that the president negotiated a Moscow property deal all through the 2016 election, and that aides may have colluded with Russia, have Washington asking: is Rudy Giuliani going to save Trump or get him impeached? Giuliani, who last year claimed that “truth isn’t truth” to explain why Trump shouldn’t testify to Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia meddling investigation, has confounded political and legal analysts. Reporters for Politico and Vanity Fair wrote Tuesday that Trump was “apoplectic” and that powerful figures in the White House were gunning for Giuliani’s dismissal.

Giuliani backtracks on comments Trump sought Moscow deal throughout 2016

Giuliani backtracks on comments Trump sought Moscow deal throughout 2016U.S. President Donald Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani backtracked on Monday from earlier comments that Trump pursued a business deal to erect a tower bearing his name in Moscow throughout 2016, saying his statements “were hypothetical and not based on conversations I had with the President.” Giuliani told NBC’s “Meet the Press” on Sunday that Trump may have continued to pursue the project and had discussions about it with his former personal attorney, Michael Cohen, until as late as October or November 2016, when Trump was closing in on his election victory over Democrat Hillary Clinton. Giuliani went a step further with the New York Times, where he quoted Trump saying the Trump Tower Moscow discussions were “going on from the day I announced to the day I won.” 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 Russia.
