New documents turned over to federal investigators reveal two previously unreported contacts between Trump Organization associates and Russian leaders during the 2016 campaign, The Washington Post reported Monday. In one incident Michael Cohen—President Trump’s personal attorney and business associate—exchanged emails with a Russian real estate developer about attending an economic conference in Russia just weeks before the Republican National Convention. The exchange reportedly included promises that Cohen could be introduced to Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev, top financial leaders, and possibly Russian President Vladimir Putin. A Russian billionaire and politician also sent Cohen a proposal in late 2015 for a Moscow residential project, the second time Trump-Moscow project was proposed during the presidential campaign. Cohen reportedly declined the invitation to the conference and rejected the Moscow proposal.
