(Worthy News) - Then-presidential candidate Trump can be heard on tape discussing with his attorney Michael Cohen how they would buy the rights to Playboy model Karen McDougal’s story about an alleged affair they had a year earlier.

The audio tape, which was made in September 2016, was provided to CNN by Cohen’s attorney Lanny Davis, and the contents of the tape aired on the network Tuesday.

Federal prosecutors have obtained 12 audio recordings, according to court filings. The tapes were obtained during the FBI raid on Cohen’s office earlier this year. [ Source: Washington Examiner (Read More...) ]

Giuliani slams 'outrageous' Cohen-Trump tape leak, claims recording ends at key point

Rudy Giuliani, the personal attorney for President Trump, told Fox News on Tuesday that it is 'outrageous' that an audio conversation between Trump and his former lawyer Michael Cohen was leaked to the media and questioned why the recording ended at a key part in the conversation.

The conversation between Trump and Cohen came weeks after the National Enquirer's parent company reached a $150,000 deal to pay former Playboy model Karen McDougal for her story of a 2006 affair, which it never published, a tabloid practice known as "catch and kill."

Trump denies the affair ever happened and his campaign had said he knew nothing about the payment. [ Source: Fox News (Read More...) ]
