Lawyer Giuliani says Trump pursued Moscow tower throughout 2016, raising questions

It is unclear precisely what "directives" Petrillo was referring to, though he did not allege elsewhere in the memo that Trump explicitly instructed Cohen to lie to Congress.

President Trump was involved in discussions to build a skyscraper in Moscow throughout the entire 2016 presidential campaign, his personal lawyer said on Sunday, a longer and more significant role for Mr. Trump than he had previously acknowledged.

Journalist Carl Bernstein, a CNN political analyst, told Stelter on Sunday that he thought it was "going to take time before we fully understand what the exact truth is here". While CNN's Jeffrey Toobin fretted the news media looked bad in its coverage, "Reliable Sources" host Brian Stelter cautioned against letting the media be defined to the public by politicians as crooks, or as Toobin put it, "leftist liars". "We remain confident in what we've reported, and will share more as we are able", Matt Mittenthal, a spokesman for the news outlet, said on Saturday. However, the BuzzFeed report caused a frenzy among congressional Democrats, some of whom suggested the story could be used as a basis for impeachment proceedings against the president.

"My recent statements about discussions during the 2016 campaign between Michael Cohen and then-candidate Donald Trump about a potential Trump Moscow "project" were hypothetical and not based on conversations I had with the President", Giuliani said.

Almost 24 hours after the story appeared, a spokesman for special counsel Robert Mueller delivered a devastating rebuttal to the report.

"BuzzFeed's description of specific statements to the Special Counsel's Office, and characterisation of documents and testimony obtained by this office, regarding Michael Cohen's congressional testimony are not accurate", he wrote.

Military sources say around 35 members of the country's security forces are killed every day in attacks and clashes. The provincial governor and spy chief traveling in the convoy were unharmed.

Cohen has not addressed BuzzFeed's reporting, and BuzzFeed has made clear he was not a source for its story. The story was reviewed by at least three editors, Smith said. "We'll go further to get inside that room".

Rep. Adam Schiff, a California Democrat and chairman of the House intelligence committee, said the panel planned to investigate why Cohen made false statements to Congress and determine what exactly Cohen and Trump might have discussed about his testimony.

"We're trying to figure out how to parse the statement from the Mueller team, and what's happening now only behind the scenes at DOJ and the special counsel, but we're trying to get deeper inside the room where this happened", Cormier said.

"I don't think he understands anything that he's saying half the time at this point", Bardella said.

He continued, "I've been a reporter for 20 years".
