Donald Trump Jr. placed the blame for a Trump Tower Moscow project solely on President Trump's former attorney Michael Cohen in an interview on Fox News' "The Ingraham Angle" Monday night, saying, "We don't know anything about it."

The big picture: Trump Jr.'s statement contradicts multiple facts that have already been made public about the Moscow project — mentioned publicly in a 2013 Trump tweet — which was formalized in a letter of intent signed by Trump in October 2015 with a team of developers first revealed in 2017.

Rudy Giuliani told Chuck Todd on NBC's "Meet the Press" that President Trump "can remember having conversations" with Michael Cohen about Trump Tower Moscow right up until the election — as late as November 2016.

One big quote: "No. 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."
