CNN obtains secret Trump-Cohen tape

The official, former federal Judge Barbara Jones, said in the filing that the 12 recordings were turned over to prosecutors after claims that they were privileged were dropped.

The special master reviewing the items seized from former Trump personal attorney Michael Cohen said Monday that she has provided 12 audio recordings to federal prosecutors for their investigation.

At a roundtable Sunday on ABC News, the lawyer for adult-film star Stormy Daniels said that the secret recording of Trump that was revealed two days ago is far from the only one made by Trump's longtime attorney Michael Cohen.

Rudy Giuliani, Trump's current attorney, told Fox News on Tuesday that there was no "indication of any crime being committed on this tape", though didn't address why the Trump campaign had previously denied having any knowledge of the McDougal payment. He told Fox News's Laura Ingraham that he's dealt with much worse tapes than this and that the audio does not prove what Davis thinks it proves. Cohen proposed paying about $150,000 to AMI, and on the tape Trump can be heard telling Cohen to make sure the payment is properly documented in order to keep a record of it.

"What financing?" says Trump, interrupting Cohen.

On Saturday, Trump tweeted that it was "inconceivable that a lawyer would tape a client - totally unheard of & perhaps illegal".

Ryan said he doesn't support tariffs. "They are taxes, paid by Americans, that harm consumers, workers, and companies". Under the terms of the Commodity Credit Corporation , the aid package does not require congressional approval.

This is not the first time that Avenatti has suggested that there could be multiple recordings of conversations Trump and Cohen have had, but his claim has yet to be substantiated.

There is nothing there, Giuliani said. "But there are more tapes". It did, however, give the president a break from news about the Helsinki summit with Vladimir Putin. But the recording is legal, according to NY law.

In a statement, Cohen's attorney, Brent Blakely, said that neither he nor his client had cooperated with or provided any information to Avenatti. "I could have received it from Michael Cohen; I could have received it from Michael Cohen's counsel; I could have received it from others".

"The only way that it would be improper for me to have it would be if I got it from the Federal Bureau of Investigation or somebody in law enforcement", he continued.

Avenatti added that he knows "the substance of some of the tapes". There's a host of other ways I could have obtained that information. It remains unclear who was recorded on the Cohen audio tapes, and when.
