Buzzfeed published Trump Tower Moscow plans that Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani claimed didn’t exist for Trump to sign off on.
During an interview with the New Yorker, Giuliani said “no plans were ever made” and that there were no drafts regarding the Trump Tower Moscow project.
Buzzfeed reports: “The plans included detailed financial arrangements. According to the signed letter of intent, Trump’s company would get a $4 million up-front payment — a quarter when the licensing agreement was executed, another quarter when they finalized a location for the tower, and the other half either a week before the project’s groundbreaking or two years after the execution of the licensing agreement, whichever came first.”
The report continued: “A show-stopping apartment like that could have been marketed for $50 million. But as BuzzFeed News reported in November, Trump’s fixers planned not to sell it — but to give it away for free, to none other than Vladimir Putin himself. Two US law enforcement officials confirmed that Cohen discussed the idea with an aide to Putin’s press secretary.”
Giuliani has been denying that you can call it a project but also said discussions of the deal continued until November 2016.
Just recently, Rudy had to walk back comments he made in the New York Times calling his comment “hypothetical” that the Trump Tower project discussions went up to the day Trump won the election.
