  • Trump lawyer: Moscow Trump Tower 'solely a real estate deal'

While the most salacious allegations in the memos haven't been verified, the broader conclusions that Russia meddled in the election are now accepted as fact by the USA intelligence community - with special counsel Robert Mueller now investigating whether Trump associates participated in the Russian effort.

In a four-page statement for the Senate Intelligence Committee, Michael Cohen denies ever engaging with Russians or anyone else to interfere in the election.

"I emphatically state that I had nothing to do with any Russian involvement in our electoral process", Cohen's statement says.

The dossier was compiled in the summer and fall of 2016 by a former British intelligence officer, Christopher Steele.

"In my opinion, the hired spy didn't find anything factual, so he threw together a shoddily written and totally fabricated report filled with lies and rumors", Cohen says.

An abandoned proposal to develop a Trump Tower in Moscow during the 2016 presidential election was "solely a real estate deal and nothing more", the personal lawyer for President Donald Trump told congressional staff on Tuesday.

Multiple congressional committees are investigating allegations of collusion between members of the Trump campaign and high-ranking Russian officials as well as Moscow's attempt to manipulate the outcome of the 2016 US presidential election. Cohen has made the case that he found the official's email address on Google.

Cohen had unsuccessfully sought to build a Trump Tower in Moscow.

NPR obtained a copy of the statement.

Cohen, who also denied that the deal was "in any way" related to the campaign says in his statement to the Senate committee "this was exclusively a real estate deal and nothing more".

In May Cohen said he would neither testify nor participate in the House and Senate intelligence committee's Russian Federation investigation.

"I was doing my job", he added.

Cohen's expected Tuesday testimony is voluntary.
