"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 in a statement shared by reporters on social media, including NBC News' Geoff Bennett.
The interview with The New Yorker was published the same day that Giuliani had to clarify other comments he made regarding Trump and Cohen about the planned building of a Trump Tower in Russian Federation.
Donald Trump and his White House team are losing all patience with Rudy Giuliani's constant missteps, according to Politico, which reports that one White House aide told the paper that "Handling Rudy's fuck ups takes more than one man".
Hours later, Special Counsel Robert Mueller threw cold-water on the media's hopes; releasing a rare statement directly refuting claims the President instructed his personal lawyer to lie to Congress.
Giuliani said Monday in a three-sentence statement that his comments "did not represent the actual timing or circumstances of any discussions".
Giuliani then went on to walk back his earlier comment about his legacy amid more questioning from Chotiner, saying he does not reflect on the historical significance of his tenure.
During the campaign, Trump asserted multiple times that he had no business interests in Russian Federation. I don't think, as a lawyer, I ever said anything that's untruthful.
Fans Reacts To Andy Carroll's Potential Shock Move To Spurs
Spurs suffered a 1-0 defeat last time out in the league and allowed Chelsea to move within a point of them in doing so. Last week Pochettino said: "Always we're open to improving our squad, to adding players that can improve us".
"Rudy had done a very good job going on TV and fighting back and laying down a defense of the president", said Sam Nunberg, a former Trump campaign official.
Giuliani said on NBC's "Meet The Press" that Trump recalled having conversations with Cohen about the project throughout 2016, though there "weren't a lot of them".
At times, Giuliani's seemingly out-of-nowhere admissions in interviews have, in fact, been part of a strategy to get ahead of damaging news stories.
Trump's lead counsel, Rudy Giuliani, certainly wants to portray it this way.
For Trump, Giuliani plays the role more of spokesman than attorney, unleashing public attacks on investigators while throwing out wild accusations created to muddle the narrative of the probe. Adjusting his previous timeline, Giuliani told CNN on Monday that there was no way of determining exactly when the discussions ended because they had no record of it.
Still, Giuliani is regarded as an important member of the legal team. The letter of intent was also quite detailed.
"Absolutely. I am afraid it will be on my gravestone".
"I don't know if they made it up", the former New York City mayor told The New Yorker's Isaac Chotiner in a wide-ranging interview. "I'll be dead. I figure I can explain it to St. Peter".
