CNN’s Chris Cuomo obtained a copy of the letter of intent rumored to exist about the Trump Tower Moscow project.
During his Tuesday show, Cuomo showed a copy of the letter featuring President Donald Trump’s signature using his frequently preferred black marker to sign.
During a Sunday interview, the president’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani claimed there could have been conversations about the project up until Nov. 2016, but that nobody ever signed any letters of intent.
“Tonight, the facts fly in the face of the story, or at least the story the president would have you believe,” Cuomo said. “This is the letter of intent for the proposed Trump Tower Moscow, all right. It is signed by Donald J. Trump. How do I know? Well because we have been told it was by his lawyer and it is, and I’ll show it to you.”
“Here’s the letter,” Cuomo went on. “Cohen didn’t sign it, the president did. Then this weekend the president’s esteemed lawyer said, quote, ‘It was a real estate project. There was a letter of intent to go forward, but no one signed it.’ Why are they doing this? This is Donald Trump’s signature. It’s here. We know this. Now, here’s what itself going on, this doesn’t matter legally. That’s the point. They’re not preparing for trial. Don’t examine it that way. They’re preparing for a PR campaign to convince you of what they want you to believe. Our job is to help you keep the facts front and center, and we’ll do that.”
The date on the letter of intent was Oct. 28, 2015, Cuomo told Raw Story via Twitter.

Ex-Reagan adviser nails why white evangelicals flock to Trump in devastating takedown of fake Christians
Why do evangelicals — or at least, white ones — love President Donald Trump so much? Why do they stick by a president who has barely even read the Bible, has defiled marriage, and embodies the antithesis of so much of what their churches preach? Why, according to polls, did they essentially decide overnight that it's no longer important for a president to have strong personal morals to be an effective leader?

Appearing on CNN, the author of a piece in The Atlantic on Ivanka Trump's disappearing act whenever her father, President Donald Trump, does something offensive, said the first daughter likes to pick her spots when she can be "part of the show."
Speaking with CNN host Ana Cabrera, journalist Elaina Plott said Ivanka's influence on her father has been overstated since the beginning of his presidency and she moves into the public eye when it benefits her.
CNN host forced to explain to Republican Rick Santorum why Trump’s attack on Democratic lawmakers was racist
During an appearance on CNN's "New Day" -- along with fellow Republican Charlie Dent (PA) -- ex-Sen. Rick Santorum (R-PA) received a lecture from host John Berman on why Donald Trump's tweets and attacks on four Democratic lawmakers were racist.
While Dent revealed that down-ticket Republicans running for re-election in 2020 are "terrified" that Trump's descent into overt racism as a campaign strategy may kill their chances of holding their seats, Santorum said he was disgusted with the whole spectacle while saying he didn't see the attacks as racist.
Asked about the president's attacks, Santorum tried to brush them away and blame the recipients of Trump's ire.
