Giuliani: Trump didn't offer to pay cash on tape

Michael Cohen and Donald Trump

At least 12 audio files have been handed to the U.S. government as part of the cache of material seized from Donald Trump's personal lawyer Michael Cohen, according to a new court filing.

CNN on Tuesday night played a 2016 recording of a conversation between Donald Trump and his then-lawyer Michael Cohen that appears to show that Mr Trump was informed of an attempt to prevent news of an alleged affair with a Playboy model from coming to light.

Conservative columnist George Will said that the newly released tape of President TrumpDonald John Trump2 women win Georgia Dem runoffs, extending streak for female candidates Giuliani on Trump-Cohen audio: "I've dealt with much worse tapes than this" Roseanne to sit down with Hannity in first television interview since ABC canceled show MORE and his former lawyer discussing a payment tied to a former Playboy model shows that Trump is "a seedy man" and "a low-life from Queens".

Trump attorney Rudy Guiliani confirmed to Reuters that the recording about McDougal was among the dozen audios, but said that none of the other 11 recordings include conversations Trump. Among them are a New York Times request to unseal Trump's divorce records related to his first wife Ivana.

Giuliani, Trump's current lawyer, says he's had an expert enhance the muffled recording.




Trump then asks, "What financing?" But, Giuliani went on to say that Trump told Cohen if he were to make a payment to use a check instead of cash. The judge said "the parties" - presumably Mr Trump and perhaps Mr Cohen - no longer object to the government listening to "12 audio items". "It's about truth", Davis said on "Good Morning America" on Wednesday.

"Typically, they would be really mad at him", another former prosecutor in the office said of Cohen, but allowed that prosecutors could be somewhat mollified by the fact that the release of the recording likely doesn't adversely affect their investigation, since the people and entities involved had already been made public. She says she had an affair with Mr. Trump more than a decade ago, which the president denies. Ms McDougal sold her story to the National Enquirer, which never published it. The recording proves that President Trump had knowledge of a proposal to buy the rights to the story of Karen McDougal.

"I need to open up a company for the transfer of all that info regarding our friend David", Cohen says.

Federal prosecutors in NY are investigating Cohen for possible bank and tax fraud, and for possible campaign law violations linked to a $130,000 payment to adult film star Stormy Daniels and other matters related to Trump's campaign, a person familiar with the investigation has told Reuters.
