Michael Cohen reportedly secretly recorded a conversation with Trump about payments made to a former Playboy model shortly before the 2016 election
Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump’s former longtime lawyer, reportedly secretly recorded a conversation during which he and Trump discussed payments made to a former Playboy model, Karen McDougal, who says she had an affair with Trump.
The conversation reportedly took place in September 2016, two months before the November election.
Cohen is currently under investigation for bank fraud, wire fraud, and campaign finance violations.
Trump’s potential knowledge of the payments raises new questions about his role in quashing negative stories about him ahead of the election.
Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump’s former longtime lawyer, secretly recorded a conversation with Trump in September 2016 in which they discussed payments made to a former Playboy model who claims to have had an affair with the president, The New York Times reported Friday.
The report says that recording was among several that the FBI seized in April when it carried out a raid on Cohen’s properties in New York. Cohen’s attorneys are said to have discovered it while going through the trove of seized documents and records as part of a privilege review. They reportedly shared the recording with Trump’s lawyers as well.See the rest of the story at Business Insider
