Four questions about Trump's tower in Moscow that never was

The latest chapter of the Trump-Russia inquiry centres around the 100-storey building that almost was.

A report from Buzzfeed News claims President Donald Trump directed his ex-lawyer Michael Cohen to mislead Congress about plans for a Trump Tower in Moscow.

So what is this Moscow tower - and how did it come to the forefront of discussions around Mr Trump and Special Counsel Robert Mueller's ongoing inquiry into alleged Russian meddling?

No, but not for a lack of trying. Mr Trump has discussed wanting a tower in the city for the last 30 years.

He envisioned "a large luxury hotel across the street from the Kremlin in partnership with the Soviet government" in his 1987 book Art of the Deal.

Mr Trump called Russia "one of the hottest places in the world for investment" in a 2007 deposition, .

"We will be in Moscow at some point," he had added.

In 2013, for his Miss Universe Pageant, Mr Trump reiterated these plans, tweeting: "TRUMP TOWER-MOSCOW is next."

The tower came up again in 2015 discussions between Trump Organization aides, led by Cohen, and Russian contacts.

But so far, all of the plans have fizzled out.
