More Tapes! Trump Shocked To Learn Cohen Recorded Number Of Their Calls

Trump denies wrongdoing says taping of client ‘perhaps illegal

President Donald Trump took a direct shot at his longtime lawyer Michael Cohen Saturday, tweeting that it was "perhaps illegal" for his former fixer to have recorded their conversations, including at least one related to hush money to silence a Playboy model who says she had an affair with him.

"It was already out there so seemed no point in objecting except on principle", Giuliani said.

Trump complained on Saturday via Twitter that an attorney recording a client conversation is "inconceivable," but NY law requires only one party to consent to any recordings of a conversation. But if it turns out that there were multiple payments to women for the objective of aiding the Trump presidential campaign, which was formally launched on June 16, 2015, and those payments were not disclosed as campaign contributions, both the Federal Election Commission and the Department of Justice could potentially pursue claims against Trump and Cohen.

At this point, Cohen has not has any conversations with prosecutors in the Southern District of NY, one source says.

The tabloid sat on the story, preventing it from being made public in a practice known as "catch and kill".

"Inconceivable that the government would break into a lawyer's office (early in the morning) - nearly unheard of", Trump tweeted. According to Giuliani, the record shows that the President "did nothing wrong".

The tape was part of extensive evidence seized by the Federal Bureau of Investigation during an April 9 raid on Cohen, which sparked outrage from the President - "Attorney-client privilege is dead!"

In recent weeks, Cohen has cut his legal cooperation with the President, making it clear in statements and interviews that his loyalty was to his family, and not Mr. Trump.

This gives the government access to the recording as part of the United States attorney for the Southern District of NY investigation into Cohen.

Trump had apparently been unaware of the recordings until he was told about them earlier this week.

"Nothing in that conversation suggests that he had any knowledge of it in advance", Giuliani told the Times.

Trump has denied the affair. Giuliani said the recording is short--less than two minutes, according to another source - and was simply a professional exchange between a client and his lawyer.

Acting as special master in the Cohen case, Barbara Jones has already released over 2 million items seized by the Federal Bureau of Investigation to prosecutors.

"In the big scheme of things, it's powerful exculpatory evidence", Giuliani said.

In it, Trump and Cohen reportedly discuss paying Karen McDougal, who claims she had an affair with Trump.

The White House has said Trump denies having sex with Daniels. It is ironic that Trump would complain about a privileged tape that would not have been released and then chooses to make it public himself.

Mr Davis said "any attempt at spin can not change what is on the tape".

"There's nothing that's stopping Michael Cohen from releasing the audio recordings that he made between him and the president concerning my client, Ms. McDougal, and others", Avenatti said.

His comments stoked speculation that he might co-operate with investigators against Mr Trump, although there has been no confirmation so far that he has done so.
