"I don't know if it happened or didn't happen", Giuliani told Tapper, adding, "So what if he talked to him about it?" "Can't be sure of the exact date".

Guiliani said it's his understanding that conversations between Trump and Michael Cohen continued as late as October or November of that year.

Cohen, who found himself in Mueller's crosshairs, has already been sentenced to three years in prison for campaign finance violations, tax evasion and lying to Congress regarding Trump's business dealings in Russian Federation prior to the Trump presidency.

"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", Giualni said in a statement. It was much more important to him. "So you have to expect there's not going to be a great deal of concentration on a project that never went anywhere". His statement Sunday, made on NBC's "Meet the Press," that Trump associates had continued negotiations about the real estate project deep into the 2016 campaign had again raised scrutiny into then-candidate Trump's posture toward Moscow, including his call in July of that year for Russian Federation to hack into Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton's emails.

"The fact of the investigation has nearly insulated Trump because we're all waiting for that final report, the package that's going to tie all these dots together, as opposed to, as you say, reacting to stunning revelations one by one that should be president-ending, term-ending".

"I do billion-dollar deals all the time, so some of them just kind of slip my mind, I guess", Dionne joked.

Giuliani gave a less definitive answer to the question in an interview Sunday with CNN's Jake Tapper.

This was the second time within the past week that Giuliani has walked back comments from the previous day.

He noted that Democrats castigated attorney general nominee Bill Barr early last week over his memo that expressed concern about the Mueller probe to top Justice Department officials, but by Friday called for Trump's impeachment if BuzzFeed's report was proven to be true.

President Trump's attorney Rudy Giuliani told Fox News on Monday that his team communicated with Special Counsel Robert Mueller's office about last week's BuzzFeed News article alleging that Trump ordered his former lawyer attorney Michael Cohen to lie to Congress - and agreed a significant portion of it was false.

Mueller is believed to be writing a report on his findings from his lengthy investigation.

In an interview with ABC News' Chief Anchor George Stephanopoulos in December, Giuliani said Trump was having conversations with his former personal attorney Michael Cohen about the project up until and around November 2016.
