Trump’s Attorneys Issue Letter Certifying No Russia Business Ties
"A lot of people thought I owned..."


President Donald Trump sent a letter from his private attorneys to Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., this week certifying that based on tax returns over the last 10 years, the president has no significant business ties to Russia.

The letter, which was prepared for Trump by attorneys Sheri Dillon and William Nelson with the Washington, D.C. firm Morgan, Lewis and Bockius in early March, was delivered to Graham in response to comments he made indicating that he wanted his Senate Judiciary subcommittee to look into Trump’s potential business ties to Russia.

The South Carolina senator said it would be helpful to have Trump tax returns as it investigates the matter, but he did not commit to subpoenaing them.

NBC News’ Lester Holt asked Trump on Thursday, “Can you tell us whether you, your family, your businesses, you surrogates, have accepted any investments, any loans from Russian individuals?”

Trump responded referencing the letter forwarded to Graham from “one of the most prestigious law firms in the country.”

“I have nothing to do with Russia. I have no investments in Russia, none, whatsoever,” the president proclaimed.
