Donald Trump had signed a letter of intent in 2015 to push ahead with plans to negotiate for construction of a Trump Tower in Moscow, CNN is reporting.

The news network obtained the document after Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani had denied the papers were ever signed.

The letter is dated Oct. 28, 2015 – more than a year before Trump was elected president. According to CNN, it clearly shows Trump’s signature.

Giuliani had said on Sunday: "It was a real estate project. There was a letter of intent to go forward, but no one signed it."

Also signing the document was Andrey Rozov, owner of the Russian company that would have developed the property.

Trump had repeatedly claimed during the 2016 presidential campaign that he had “nothing to do with Russia” and never said his company explored a business deal in Moscow.

The deal was eventually scrapped, CNN noted. Had it gone through, Trump’s company would have received a $4 million upfront fee and a percentage of sales.

CNN noted while the deal was still active, Trump, then a candidate for president, was speaking about working with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Giuliani now acknowledges the letter was signed by Trump.

“I don’t think I said nobody signed it,” Giuliani told the Daily News. “How could you send it but nobody signed it?”

But he maintained the letter was meaningless.

“That was the end of it,” Giuliani said. “It means nothing but an expression of interest, that means very little unless it goes to a contract and it never did.”
