Rudy Giuliani said Sunday that President Trump might have discussed the Moscow real estate deal as late as election day.

During an appearance on ABC’s This Week, attorney Rudy Giuliani admitted that President Donald Trump might have discussed his Trump Tower Moscow deal with former lawyer Michael Cohen as far into the 2016 campaign as election day.

On ABC's "This Week," Giuliani seemed to reference Trump's written responses to special counsel Robert Mueller, saying the conversations about the proposed Moscow project might have gone as far as the tail end of the general election period.

"According to the answer that he gave, it would have covered all the way up to November of -- covered all the way up to November 2016," Giuliani said. "Said he had conversations with him -- but the President didn't hide this."

Asked about the difference between that comment and the previous claim that Trump's discussions about the project ended in January 2016, Giuliani said, "Until you actually sit down and answer the questions and you go back and you look at the papers and you look at ... you're not going to know what happened."

Later on Sunday, Giuliani shifted the story slightly, telling CNN that Trump did not specify exactly when he discussed the Moscow real estate deal in his response to Mueller.

Giuliani added that the conversations could have been in June or July of 2016.

"Up until November 2016, they could have had a conversation about Trump Tower Moscow, and it went nowhere," Giuliani told CNN.

"It was a real estate project. There was a letter of intent to go forward, but no one signed it," he said.
