Rudy Giuliani yesterday: "It's our understanding that it, that [talks] went on throughout 2016, not a lot of them, ... but the president can remember having conversations with [Cohen] about it. ... Probably up to, could be up to as far as October, November."

Rudy Giuliani today: "My recent statements about discussions during the 2016 campaign between Michael Cohen and then-candidate Donald Trump about a potential Trump Moscow 'project' were hypothetical and not based on conversations with the President.

Rudy yesterday, quoting Trump to the NYT: Discussions "going on from the day I announced to the day I won"
