A new document CNN has gained access to, proving that president Donald Trump signed a letter of intent to proceed with negotiations to build a Trump-skyscraper in Russia.
despite the fact that the attorney Rudy Giuliani on Sunday claimed that the document never was signed.
It was a real estate project. It was a document about the intention to continue the process, but it was never signed, he said, according to the TV channel.
The document in question is dated 28. October 2015 and is signed by the president himself and by Andrei Rozov, the owner of the Russian eiendomsfirmaet that should stand for the development of the building.
Trump has kept hidden for the public that his company explored business opportunities with the Russian federation under the presidentkampanjen in 2016. Instead he has claimed that he had nothing with Russia to do.
This was a project we carried out. I didn't do it. There had been something wrong if I did it. There was a strong possibility that I did not win, and in that case I would have gone back to businesslivet, and why should I lose lots of opportunities?, Trump previously stated.Would give the penthouse in Trump tower to Putin Lucrative agreement
