Last week, BuzzFeed reported that Mr Trump's personal lawyer delivered the false information to politicians about the then candidate's business interests in Moscow on the orders of the man who is now president.
On Thursday, BuzzFeed News published another "bombshell" report that ended up backfiring after Special Counsel Robert Mueller's office took the unusual step of issuing a statement refuting it. President Trump has since pointed to the article as a prime example of how the "Fake News Media" operates.
Discussions between Donald Trump and his former lawyer about a possible real estate deal in Russian Federation continued right up until the 2016 election, later than previously reported, according to Rudy Giuliani, Trump's current attorney. "And that is big news". He claimed it would not have been of any significance if he had spoken with him.
"I don't think he understands anything that he's saying half the time at this point", Bardella said. It may be attorney-client privilege if it happened, where I can't acknowledge it.
Giuliani gave a less definitive answer to the question in an interview Sunday with CNN's Jake Tapper.
"So what if he talked to him about it?" he asked.

Trump has supporters either in this country or maybe overseas that have a motivation to harm", Davis added . He said that Cohen had been "proven to be a liar".
The remarks also came amid fallout from a disputed report by BuzzFeed News that alleged that evidence showed that Trump had personally directed Cohen to lie to Congress about how long talks about the proposed project had overlapped with Trump's campaign for president.
We'll try to sort through the changing stories about the Trump Organization's efforts to put together a deal to build a Trump Tower in Moscow while Trump was running for president, but here's what's most vital to understand: You don't have to believe the absolute worst version of this scandal, where every accusation reveals an actual crime, to admit that Trump was and is both deeply corrupt and utterly dishonest.
In a separate appearance on CNN's "State of the Union" on Sunday, Giuliani said Trump had discussions with Cohen throughout 2015 and 2016 about the deal but wasn't talking to people in Russian Federation about it and wasn't directing Cohen to say anything. "There weren't a lot of them, but there were conversations". Cohen, unlike in the Southern of District of NY case against him, did not say that Trump "directed" him to commit a crime.
In the statement, he said "there was no collusion by President Trump in any way, shape or form" and that he had "no knowledge of any collusion by any of the thousands of people who worked on the campaign".
Smith said BuzzFeed is "eager" to understand which parts of the report Mueller's office is challenging as inaccurate.
