CNN’s Chris Cuomo Got Hold Of One Of Trump’s Secret Tapes And Play It Live On His Show
Several tapes revealing secret conversations between President Trump and Cohen months before the 2016 election were seized by the FBI from President Donald Trump’s former personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, and then turned over to federal prosecutors on Friday.
The twelve tapes have not been made public, until now. On Tuesday, CNN’s Chris Cuomo obtained one of the tapes and shared it live on his show.
“Now, this is not a great quality recording, and that will be relevant to its analysis. So first I want to play you the entire recording, not all of which is relevant to the payment. So listen for yourself,” Cohen said.
The tapes detail that President Trump was not “shocked” about payments being made on his behalf to Playboy model Karen McDougal.
Before playing the tape, Cuomo said that “Trump’s attorney, Rudy Giuliani, “is aware we have the recording.”
“You’ll remember the president waived his attorney-client privilege that allowed this tape to be released to prosecutors. Now, the team says they didn’t leak the tape. This recording comes from Cohen, counsel Lanny Davis,” Cuomo said.
