Avenatti: Cohen Tapes Contain 'very damaging admissions' By Trump on 'critical issues'

Avenatti: Cohen Tapes Contain 'very damaging admissions' By Trump on 'critical issues'”

On the tape, then-candidate Trump and Cohen can be heard discussing potential hush-money payments meant to squash a Playboy model's story about an alleged affair she had with Trump.

On Tuesday, Cohen released a secret recording to CNN of his conversation with Trump regarding a payment to silence Playboy model Karen McDougal about an alleged affair.

"There were vast amounts, in fact hundreds of thousands of documents that were seized from Michael Cohen's offices and home and hotel", Klieman said.

Davis told Cuomo that he wanted the public to hear Trump say that he wanted to pay in cash, in contrast to statements from the president's lawyer Rudy Giuliani that it was Cohen who said they should pay in cash. "One-fifty?" Trump asks. "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". Giuliani said the payment was never made.

The release of the tape, which was first reported by The New York Times last week, has fanned speculation about how much damage Cohen can inflict on the president.

"The transaction that Michael is talking about on the tape never took place, but what's important is: If it did take place, the president said it has to be done correctly and it has to be done by check" to keep a proper record of it, Giuliani said.

"Inconceivable that the government would break into a lawyer's office (early in the morning) - nearly unheard of", he tweeted. I hear there are other clients and many reporters that are taped - can this be so?

"The good news", he added, "is that your favorite President did nothing wrong!".

During the campaign, the Trump team denied any knowledge of the deal between McDougal and American Media, the magazine's parent company. "All of the information that the Federal Bureau of Investigation seized, that's not under lock and key", said Avenatti, defending the credibility of his assertions.

Avenatti declined to reveal any details, maintaining that the only way he would have acted improperly would have been if he received the tape from someone in law enforcement. "The only way that it would be improper for me to have it is if I got it from the Federal Bureau of Investigation or somebody in law enforcement". "After Michael Cohen mentioned financing". Avenatti proceeded to suggest that there were a number of ways he could have obtained the information, including from Cohen himself.
