CNN‘s Chris Cuomo broke the news that they have the Donald Trump signed letter of intent to build a Trump Tower in Moscow.
Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani denied that the letter was ever signed, but there was Cuomo live on CNN holding up a letter of intent that wasn’t just signed, but it was signed by the now president Donald J. Trump.

The letter kills Trump’s no business in Russia defense
In 2016, Trump said, “I’m all over the world but we’re not involved in Russia.”
The above statement was a lie.
Trump was more than involved in Russia. He was actively trying to do business in Russia. The letter itself isn’t proof that Trump broke the law, but it is evidence that Trump has been lying about his connections and efforts to do business in Russia. The pieces are coming together. Donald Trump name is signed on the letter. While running for president, Trump was trying to build a Trump Tower in Moscow.
As a candidate, Trump was already compromised by the Russians.
CNN has the evidence, and if CNN‘s got it, you could bet your bottom dollar that Robert Mueller also has it and a hundred times more.
