Dates on Trump File reflect when something happens, not when it's first reported.

In or around November, a Russian national reaches out to Michael Cohen to try and arrange a meeting between Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin.

Cohen denies the request because he can arrange a meeting with Putin through Felix Sater, who he is working with in an effort to establish Trump Tower Moscow.

This information comes out during the Mueller investigation.

In or around November 2015, Cohen received the contact information for, and spoke with, a Russian national who claimed to be a “trusted person” in the Russian Federation who could offer the campaign “political synergy” and “synergy on a government level.” The defendant recalled that this person repeatedly proposed a meeting between Individual 1 and the President of Russia. The person told Cohen that such a meeting could have a “phenomenal” impact “not only in political but in a business dimension as well,” referring to the Moscow Project, because there is “no bigger warranty in any project than consent of [the President of Russia].” Cohen, however, did not follow up on this invitation.

The defendant explained that he did not pursue the proposed meeting, which did not take place, in part because he was working on the Moscow Project with a different individual who Cohen understood to have his own connections to the Russian government.
