President Donald Trump’s taped 2016 conversation with his then-personal attorney Michael Cohen on buying the rights to a Playboy model’s story of an alleged affair is “not illegal,” though it might be embarrassing, former White House chief of staff Reince Priebus said Tuesday during an exclusive interview on Fox News’ “The Ingraham Angle.”
“At the very worst, it might be embarrassing, but it’s not illegal,” Priebus (shown above) told Fox News host Laura Ingraham. “One thing I have learned from being out of the sort of spotlight and the daily grind is that when you go back to Wisconsin and Michigan and Ohio … I have not found a single person who is swayed by any of these stories [that are] a massive financial boon to … cable news, and especially a couple of other networks.”
CNN obtained a recording of a September 2016 conversation between Trump and Cohen concerning buying the story rights to Playboy model Karen McDougal’s story of an alleged affair with Trump from a decade ago.
Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, now part of Trump’s legal team, has said that the payment was never made. Cohen’s attorney, Lanny Davis, gave the recording to CNN for release Tuesday on “Cuomo Prime Time.” – READ MORE[divider][/divider]
Following the release of audio tape apparently revealing a 2016 communication between then-presidential candidate Donald Trump and his longtime attorney, Michael Cohen, Trump supporters and critics have been arguing over its interpretation and importance.
Cohen’s attorney, Lanny Davis, released the audio to CNN for broadcast Tuesday evening.
Trump joined those critical of Cohen’s conduct with a tweet early Wednesday morning.
What kind of a lawyer would tape a client? So sad! Is this a first, never heard of it before? Why was the tape so abruptly terminated (cut) while I was presumably saying positive things? I hear there are other clients and many reporters that are taped – can this be so? Too bad!
