Cohen 'Vehemently' Denies Trump Dossier Allegations About Himself

For instance, in one of his denials, Mr. Cohen says that unlike the dossier suggests, he has never visited Prague. "Since we do not react to such business topics - this is not our job - we left this without response", he said. President Barack Obama informed President Vladimir Putin that the sanctions were a direct response to Russia's "violation of Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity".

The 35-page dossier, compiled by a former British intelligence officer working with a former investigative reporter, explicitly accuses Cohen of being a key link between the Russian government and the Trump campaign - a charge he has repeatedly and flatly denied.

Cohen said he did not keep others within the Trump Organization apprised of his communications with Sater, and that he rejected Sater's suggestion that Cohen travel to Moscow. He also suggested that Trump has shaped his foreign policy based on a business opportunity in Russian Federation.

Lavrov "expressed regret over the escalation of tensions", noting they were not initiated by Russian Federation.

Investigators are now reviewing those notes, trying to determine if there was any talk of foreign donations to the Trump campaign or the Republican Party, contributions that would be illegal.

He added that he had abandoned the project because he lost confidence the Moscow developer would be able to obtain land, financing and government approvals to complete the project.

Mr. Cohen produced records to Congress this week, including a series of emails he had received in 2015 from Felix Sater, a real estate broker with ties to the Kremlin. "It was a building proposal that did not succeed and nothing more".

July 18: Trump meet Putin for the first time as president during the Group of 20 summit in Germany. As for Mr. Cohen, he is expected to record his statement with the Congressional committee next month.

ALEXANDER: That decision from Vladimir Putin last month responding to new USA sanctions for Moscow's interfering in the election by expelling 755 American diplomats.

"It means, among other things, the president was dishonest when he said during the campaign that he had no business in Russia, wasn't pursuing no business in Russia", Schiff said."So, yet another, I think, misleading statement by the administration about their relationship with Russia".

Trump and his close associates have tried to distance themselves from Sater, who has something of a checkered past.

On Wednesday, Peskov said that the email described a "Russian company together with certain people [who] had the goal of creating a new skyscraper in Moscow city, but the deal is not moving forward, and they were asking for some recommendations and help advancing this deal". Peskov said that he read the email, which was addressed to him personally, but took no further action and did not show it to Putin.
