CNN host Jake Tapper quoted pop star Taylor Swift on Friday while reporting on the escalating feud between President Trump and his longtime personal lawyer Michael Cohen.
In the immortal words of Taylor Swift, now weve got bad blood, we used to be mad love, Tapper said at the top of his show, The Lead.
Cohen, Trumps former lawyer and fixer, is again in the national spotlight after it was revealed last week that the FBI had seized Cohens secret recordings of conversations with Trump.
One tape, which CNN aired Monday night, reveals Cohen and Trump discussing arranging a payment for the rights to the story of former Playboy model Karen McDougal, who claims she had an affair with Trump in 2006.
Cohen is under investigation in New York for a series of alleged financial crimes. Prosecutors are also looking into the $130,000 payment that he arranged for adult-film star Stormy Daniels, who also alleges having an affair with Trump.
Cohens recent statements, coupled with the FBI raid of his office and hotel room in April, have led many to wonder if the lawyer is preparing to cooperate with prosecutors against his former client as a way to alleviate pressure on himself.
Trump and his current legal team previously defended Cohen as a good person and expressed confidence that he would not flip on the president, but have since changed their narrative.
Trump has railed against Cohen for the recording, and his lawyer Rudy Giuliani referred to Cohen as a pathological liar.
Cohen has also reportedly claimed that Trump knew in advance of the June 2016 Trump Tower meeting between campaign officials, including his son, Donald Trump Jr. and a Russian lawyer.
First they show us what a lying scumbag Cohen is with all the recording then they expect us to believe everything he says afterwards ,LOL
It might actually be true, in the sense that Trump used Cohen to settle minor hassles. I wonder what the real leverage is that the DS has over Cohen. I've read (and Trump tweeted) that there were some hinky financial dealings involving NYC taxi medallions, which took a beating with the rise of ride-sharing. It must be something pretty good, and I think its very unlikely it has anything at all to do with Trump.
Cohen might be caught between the courts and some people he owes money to. And, after leaking the tapes, he'll never get any clients in the future, even assuming he isn't disbarred, or at least censured and suspended.
Yes....he IS a slease who will never work as anyone’s attorney from now on! AND, whatever he tells Lanny Davis, Davis will relate to Hilliary!
Didnt I hear that Tappers wifes favorite restaurant is Ping Pong Pizza? Family of liars and worse.
All you need to know is, everything Cohen says, he is saying to keep his ass out of Mueller’s prison. What Bobby wants, Bobby gets.
Donald Trump’s GoldenHair
PeeWee Herman’s Classic,
“I Meant to do That!”
Jake Tapper is one of CNN’S Useful Idiots...
He’s a click-bait journalist and propaganda activist masquerading as a reporter and driven by his own biased agenda. As with Hollywood TV reporters/Journalist covet the spotlight.
Ooh is he mean girling him? Because in the words of Taylor haters gonna hate hate hate
I realize his airtime is limited, but if he could just squeeze in a word or two about that between Cohen and Stormy...
Tapper you are LAME!!!
Im never, ever, ever, gonna watch that Tapper
