Feds Have 12 Michael Cohen Audio Recordings

Avenatti I think Cohen is ready to tell the truth

Federal Bureau of Investigation agents seized documents, cellular telephones and other devices in a raid of Cohen's home, office, and hotel room in April.

"Even more inconceivable that a lawyer would tape a client - totally unheard of & perhaps illegal. The good news is that your favorite President did nothing wrong!" If Trump indeed told Cohen to write a check so that it could be properly documented, then he clearly had no intention of hiding the payment.

While Cohen was once quoted as saying he would "take a bullet" for the president, Trump's tweet and the sharp reply from Cohen's lawyer Lanny Davis could signal that the bond between the two has been damaged, if not broken. NY state law allows for recordings of conversations with only the consent of one party; other jurisdictions require all parties to agree. As for Cohen specifically, it has always been known that he records his clients, and therefore what's inconceivable is that Trump didn't know.

Cohen is being investigated for potential bank and election-law crimes.

Klieman says while it's rare for an attorney to tape a conversation with a client, it's still unclear if Cohen was acting in his capacity as a lawyer when the conversation was recorded. "You know, that old adage, 'You've lived by the sword, you die by the sword, ' is going to be true in this case, because the president knew that his attorney, Michael Cohen, had a predisposition towards taping conversations with people".

"I know for a fact that this is not the only tape".

"When the recording is heard, it will not hurt Mr Cohen", Davis said in a statement. At the time, a Trump spokeswoman said his campaign had "no knowledge of any of this".

The following day, Jones ordered that 12 of those files be released to prosecutors, including the recording of Trump and Cohen discussing a payment to former Playboy model Karen McDougal, who claims she began a almost yearlong affair with Trump in 2006.

Prosecutors are apparently interested in payments he made on Trump's behalf to porn actress Stormy Daniels, and other business dealings related to Trump.

Trump has denied the affairs.

Giuliani has said no payment was made by Trump to McDougal or for her story.

The FBI seized the recording as part of an investigation which stemmed in part from a referral by the U.S. special counsel's office, which is looking into possible coordination during the election campaign between Trump's aides and Russian officials. Moscow has denied US allegations that it interfered in the election, and Trump has denied any campaign ties to Russian officials.

Cohen rejected repeated requests for comment.

Karen McDougal said had a sexual relationship with Trump in 2006. In March of 2018, she filed a lawsuit seeking to invalidate a contract she signed with American Media, Inc., the parent company of the National Enquirer.

"If he was prepared to do the right thing, come clean, and basically turn state's evidence, I would absolutely consider it", he said.

Giuliani said the proposed payment was a personal matter and not subject to campaign finance law. He is under investigation by federal prosecutors in Manhattan over payments he made to women who allegedly had affairs with Trump.

Cohen, who became Trump's personal lawyer in 2007, paid 130,000 to Daniels - real name, Stephanie Clifford - shortly before the 2016 election to keep her quiet about her alleged affair with Trump.
