[Ed. – For what it’s worth. Presumably, a denial from the Kremlin doesn’t mean no one in Russia talked to a Trump Tower delegation. But there is little reason to believe Trump’s accusers on any of this either, frankly. They have the same credibility as the Kremlin at this point.]

Russia had no discussions with President Trump or anyone on his team during the 2016 elections about a proposed real estate project in Moscow, a senior Russian official told reporters Monday.

“No, the Kremlin did not hold talks with anyone at all about building the tower,” Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said, according to state-run TASS.

Putin’s spokesman released that statement as Trump’s apparent interest in Moscow real estate dominated the Washington, D.C., media landscape over the weekend. BuzzFeed prompted the discussion with a report, since contradicted by special counsel Robert Mueller’s office, that the president directed then-attorney Michael Cohen to lie to federal investigators about his interest in a Moscow Trump Tower during the election.
