• News Alert: Russia says Trump lawyer did write, but they didn't respond

    From CNN Breaking News@VERT to no-reply@siteservices.cnn.com on Wed Aug 30 08:01:46 2017
    Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov has confirmed that he got an email from Michael Cohen[1], Donald Trump's lawyer, asking for help moving a Moscow real estate deal forward, but said he did not respond and did not pass it on to Russian President Vladimir Putin.

    Peskov was responding to a question from CNN on a conference call with reporters.

    Cohen -- who was executive vice president of the Trump Organization at the time he sent the email -- said on Monday that he had contacted the Kremlin for assistance in mid-January 2016 about building a Trump Tower in Moscow when the mogul was running for president, but denied that the project was related to Trump's campaign. 

    But the revelation appears to contradict Trump's vehement denials of any such business connections to Russia in the past.

    Cohen told CNN on Monday his message to Peskov was "an email that went unanswered that was solely regarding a real estate deal and nothing more."[2]
