Former Trump attorney secretly tapes CNN’s Cuomo

The best word to describe Michael Cohen, the president’s former lawyer, is “sleazy.”

The fall-out between President Trump and Cohen began when federal agents raided the attorney’s home and office. There they found 12-audio recordings (taped without the president’s knowledge) regarding a host of assumed confidential and privileged conversations between Trump and his attorney.

The obvious betrayal regarding attorney-client privilege by Cohen should be a wake-up call for anyone seeking legal counsel especially if you care about confidentiality or not being secretly“bugged” by your lawyer.

The Wall Street Journal reported late Wednesday that Cohen secretly recorded a conversation with CNN’s Cuomo where he admitted to arranging a $130,000 payment to Stormy Daniels in 2016.

However, it isn’t clear whether the president personally instructed Cohen to make the payment on his behalf, or if Cohen “the attorney” negotiated the payment on his own.

“I did it on my own,” Cohen admitted in the recording, according to unnamed sources. Cohen had previously said he “facilitated” the payment with his own money and called it a “private transaction.”

Trump’s attorney Rudy Giuliani had previously acknowledged that the president reimbursed Cohen for the $130,000 payment through a monthly retainer, but insisted Trump wasn’t aware of the deal until much later.

This discloser once again unleashed the media-hounds, attempting to link Cohen’s payment to some type of a campaign finance violation by the Trump team.

“It wasn’t for the campaign”, Cohen’s voice could be heard on the audio, when asked by Cuomo if the payment could be misunderstood as a contribution.

Cohen reiterates, “It wasn’t for the campaign. It was for Trump.”

The CNN audio secretly recorded by Cohen after he assured Cuomo he wasn’t taping their conversation, illustrates once again the character of the man. However, this could potentially help the White House distanced themselves from the Daniels payment and also call into question Cohen’s credibility, regarding the Mueller probe.

As for Cohen secretly recording the president, although it’s not a crime in New York State, it’s certainly unethical. Moreover, if this was done in Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Maryland, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania (just to name a few states), Cohen would be looking at some serious federal violations.

    Why is it ‘certainly unethical’ to secretly tape a conversation with a person who is a congenital liar and known to throw associates ‘under the bus’? After all, Cohen had repeatedly helped Mr. Trump out of scrapes, knew his personality well, and was only protecting himself. Sleazy yes; but unethical?

      Yeah, he lied about improving the economy and improving foreign relations through strength, rather than bowing at foreign leaders. Right? You are a moron and a left wing drone.

    It is a sad day when the FBI can raid a lawyers home and take recordings made between the lawyer and his client. The majority of FBI agents have a college degree in law they new better than to take the tapes, they knew attorney client privilege would be held up in every court in America and nothing on those tapes would be admissible in a court of law. But they took them anyway knowing they could not use them in court, so they leaked it to the press! If any evidence of wrong doing at that point even if they found evidence another way. A good attorney could argue that they would not have every found the supposed wrong doing if they had not broken the lawyer client privilege in a early morning raid. I don’t understand why the left, the FBI, will do anything to hurt President Trump. Forget about his tweets, words mean nothing compared to actions. Just look at what President Trump has accomplished with the crap that no other President has had to go through. He has accomplished more for America than any President could have ever hoped to accomplished especially in the state that the world is today, also how divisive the left is including the media. There has never been a President that the disrespect just for the office he holds Does not matter to those that oppose a better America. But throw everything you got at our President, he can take it and still make America great! I pray and hope that God will open enough eyes so this midterm election we will keep the Majority in both houses, also replace some of the weak republicans as well.
    President Trump I am proud to say your the best, you are doing an incredible job. Thank you
    Thanks again,

    The rule to follow in life is: if you don’t want it known, DON’T SAY IT. TO ANYONE. EVER. Whether wife, lover, friend, lawyer, accountant, or whatever…always keep them on a need to know basis only because if they ever get squeezed they’ll give you up like a bad meal. You mean nothing to them.
    I know you don’t like to hear that because you love to chatter like a &%#$$%. Shut up and move on.
