Skip to comments.Michael Cohen Secretly Taped Trump Discussing Payment to Playboy Model
Posted on 07/20/2018 9:04:41 AM PDT by yesthatjallen
President Trumps longtime lawyer, Michael D. Cohen, secretly recorded a conversation with Mr. Trump two months before the presidential election in which they discussed payments to a former Playboy model who said she had an affair with Mr. Trump, according to lawyers and others familiar with the recording.
The F.B.I. seized the recording this year during a raid on Mr. Cohens office. The Justice Department is investigating Mr. Cohens involvement in paying women to tamp down embarrassing news stories about Mr. Trump ahead of the 2016 election. Prosecutors want to know whether that violated federal campaign finance laws, and any conversation with Mr. Trump about those payments would be of keen interest to them.

I dont care
And it was recorded why? For future black mail?
Russians involved how? And I still want to know what right any prosecutor has to raid my lawyer’s office and use what they find against me.
Attorney/client privilege lawsuit on it’s way....
So we now have no attorney client privilege in this country. This is where we are?
Another snake. Now I dont feel sorry for MC anymore.
Maybe not blackmail, but perhaps to avoid a case of so-called Arcancide?
Fake News story 938,589 about Trump from the NY DNC office
From the New York Times?
And “secretly recording” someone, and a client at that,
probably violates a lot of laws and attorney-client relationship strictures.
Well, Russia! Russia! Russia! isn’t working, so it’s back to the prostitute.
I’m not a lawyer, but couldn’t Cohen get disbarred for that?
How much more protected by attorney-client privilege could such a recording be?
If we’re doing away with attorney-client privilege to this extent, then there should be no barrier to a full-scale raid and seizure of all materials from Perkins Coie.
Would a “Secretly” Recorded tape be admissible as evidence in Court?
Bill Clinton didn’t pay anything to the women he raped. He’s beloved by Democrats in and out of the media, so a payment for sex can’t be all that important to them.
Attorney-Client privilege seems to mean nothing to liberals.
Not good for Cohen’s client base if they learn it means nothing to him.
I don;t care if Trump had sex with her or not OR if he paid her. He still was a better choice than the former rapist-in-chief’s shrill witch wife.
Irrelevant. But, if Trump was unaware of the recording it can’t be used against him, and Cohan could be in trouble.
Two months before the election. Whatever, so bored with this lame fat butt stripper story.
“Rudolph W. Giuliani, Mr. Trumps personal lawyer, confirmed in a telephone conversation on Friday that Mr. Trump had discussed the payments with Mr. Cohen on the tape but said the payment was ultimately never made. He said the recording was less than two minutes and demonstrated that the president had done nothing wrong.”
