The Cohen Tapes: Trumpís Watergate?
The New American ^ | 25 July 2018 | Steve Byas

Posted on 07/25/2018 2:31:56 PM PDT by detective

Appearing on CNN Tuesday with Chris Cuomo, Michael Cohen lawyer Lanny Davis argued that the tape he gave to CNN, which had just been played to the viewers by Cuomo, proved “the truth is on our side.” Davis is well known for his extremely close ties to Bill and Hillary Clinton.

The tape includes a discussion between then-presidential candidate Donald Trump and his then-lawyer Michael Cohen on several issues, including the request of the New York Times to unseal Trump’s divorce records involving Trump’s first wife, Ivana, and other matters. The tape also includes a discussion of the issue of the allegations of Karen McDougal, a former Playboy model, that she had an affair with Trump years ago.

"As expected, Davis, a staunch Clinton advocate, put a spin on the story to place Trump in the worst possible light, and conjured up memories of the tapes from the Watergate scandal that ended in President Nixon’s resignation. “Richard Nixon couldn’t spin the tape that did him in, and there’s no way that Mr. Giuliani, who knows from being U.S. Attorney, the only people who use cash are drug dealers and mobsters. Cash is not what you do, and it was Michael Cohen who said, ‘No, no, no, no.’ And Donald Trump, despite what Rudy Giuliani said publicly, the tape contradicts Mr. Giuliani and the word ‘cash’ is heard by everyone.”"

Conversations between an attorney and client are private and privileged. Cohen is violating every legal code of ethics by taping these conversations without his clients knowledge and by making them public.

Why is Cohen choosing slime ball and Clinton operative Lanny Davis as his attorney?

Was Cohen always a Clinton plant and slime ball setting up Trump? Was Cohen backstabbing Trump during the entire Stormy Davis incident?

"Trump's Watergate" is probably wishful thinking by Davis, Cuomo and CNN.

But remember, John Dean was Nixon's personal attorney during their meetings and Nixon thought the conversations fell under attorney client privilege. Dean knifed Nixon in the back. The media and the Democrats then piled on and the Nixon presidency was doomed.

Nope!

If you felt so bad, you morons, you shouldn’t have supported Clinton in the 90s.

He believes it’s his best shot at avoiding jail.

I don’t believe adultery (yet unproven) is a crime within the United States. What other crime can be gleaned from this?

I have yet to see why this tape amounts to anything other than fodder for gossip. So Trump was seeking to shut up the playmate right? Sleazy but so what. It's not against the law.

A sure way to attract attention of authorities is to use cash in excess of $10k. Trump would now this.

Also, it seemed to me that they were setting up a company to purchase the rights. This would leave a bigger paper trail footprint than big foot.

Watergate was Nixon tapping his opponent’s campaign phones. So, Trump wire tapped Clinton’s campaign? Hmmm.... no, that was Obama wire tapping Trump’s campaign on Clinton’s behalf.

Except it proved the opposite. LD is calling Trump a “drug dealer” for discussing cash, and even I could hear Trump say “Don’t pay in cash” and “check”. So how is the truth on the other side?

Is Cohen recording the conversations he’s having with Hillary and Lanny ?

My guess is that Cohen had other shady dealings, not related to DJT, for which he could go to jail. I’m confident that President Trump will remain clean no matter what they say and how they spin it.

Wow! The leftists think that we should be concerned about Trump having an affair like we would be totally shocked if we really knew the truth about him.

It's too late folks we already voted for him.

And, to say in unison with the left when crap was uncovered about Bill Clinton:

"He is OUR president. So, BUG OFF !!"

The Watergate tape scandal wasn’t just about what was on them but rather it was also all Nixon’s attempt to hide them and the court battles undertaken to have them released to the special prosecutor. Trump never had control nor has he attempted to hide them. The attempted comparisons here don’t wash!

When I buy Real Estate, I pay cash, no I don’t walk in on closing day with a briefcase full of $100 bills like you see in the movies. I have a certified bank note from my bank.

Cash does not mean what the media is trying to make it out to be. Cash in Real Estate, means you are buying with out a loan or mortgage. Nobody expects you to show up with a briefcase full of $100 bills.
