Michael Cohen

President Trump's former longtime attorney Michael Cohen has flipped. On Tuesday, CNN aired an audio of a private conversation between Trump and Cohen discussing forming a company to "buy the rights" to Karen McDougal's story.

In the September 2016 audio, Trump says, “I need to open up a company for the transfer of all of that info regarding our friend David," referencing David Pecker, Chairman and CEO of American Media, publisher of the National Enquirer.

Trump is heard asking Cohen “what financing?” and “pay with cash,” or "don't pay with cash." Trump also yells to an aide, "GET ME A COKE, PLEASE!"

Without hearing the full audio, it is impossible to determine what Trump and Cohen are discussing.

Trump's attorney Rudy Giuliani denies any payment was ever made to McDougal. Legal experts agree that it is not illegal to discuss buying the rights to anyone's life story.

The former Playboy Playmate praised Trump in an appearance on Anderson Cooper 360 earlier this year. McDougal told Cooper she voted for Trump in 2016 and she plans to vote for him again in 2020.

The audio tape is part of over 1 million documents and other evidence seized by federal agents in a raid on Cohen's home, office and a hotel room earlier this year.

    Cohen knows everything and recorded it. You either going to pardon me or I'm a get this deal.

  • DETROITTOATL

    Although I don't like COHEN, he is going to be the one to end TRUMPS reign. And then I want them both to go to jail.

  • KLove

    nothing to see here folks lol

  • Coy little wink

    I'm starting to like Cohen..

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    But Trump doesn't know which conversations Cohen recorded and that much leave him sleepless most nights.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Good one. I assumed he was talking about the soda.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Giuliani released this tape to divert attention away from that flop of a summit in Helsinki.

    Edit: Ok I thought that Rudy released the tapes, but either way it's only the tip of the iceberg.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    I almost want him to pardon Cohen at this point. It would just look like the total coverup that it would be.
    Go ahead, Trump. I dare you.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    And there's word Cohen might know a little bit about that Trump Tower meeting with the Russians in June 2016. He might know for sure if Donald knew about that meeting or not. I'm sure Mueller would find that useful.

  • WhoKnew

    Yes, there is something to see. This is just the beginning. Grab your popcorn. And will somebody get me a Coke?

  • Phillybruh

    Nah, the courts were going to admit the tapes so he got in front of it.

  • WhoKnew

    Once that other fool talked about the existence of this tape then Lani Davis gave it to CNN because dump let that fool Goolie Annie talk him into admitting it's existence and part of what was on it which took away the attorney/client privilege. Dumb and Dumber meets the Dumbest.

    Looks like Cohen isn't as stupid as I thought. He knew he was dealing with the devil and was smart enough to tape Satan. I can't wait to hear the remaining tapes. #RESIST #LOCKHIMUP

  • soldierwoman89

    I watched CNN last night....Cohen's attorney released the tapes to prove Cohen is not a liar like u know who

  • She.Is.Not.Ready

    We are 2 years into this ?....at the rate Mueller is going it'll be 2020 before he wraps up the investigation and from there another 4 before Drumpf leaves office. The Democrats aren't doing anything to prepare for 2020 so let's not get our hopes up and enjoy this show. 6 years is not that long
    ?.

  • She.Is.Not.Ready

    2 years to the get to the "beginning" only 6 more years until this mess ends

  • Phillybruh

    I think this wraps up in the next 6 months. After they convict his Campaign manager he will sing like a canary to avoid the other trials coming up.

  • Yoni7

    EVERYBODY is about to end up in the Potomac river.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    It would be this summer but Mueller is waiting to interview Trump which means he's completed 90-95% of the investigation.

    How long it will take Mueller to complete a write-up is anyone's guess.

    BWAHAHAHA....this is al bullsh*t. As usual this will accomplish nothing. Haven't you people wised up by now?....You're useful idiots...the leftist white liberals love your ignorance and stupidity.....!
    As noted by a prominent lawyer: “This is all political. There is no crime here. The worst, worst case scenario, take everything Lanny Davis says as true, there’s no crime. There’s no federal crime. There’s no impeachable offense. This is all about how the president looks in the court of public opinion, whether or not he, through his lawyer, said something that was not true. I think they will win that fight because the tape’s ambiguous enough so that there will be people who will hear it the way they want to hear it, and other people who will hear it the way they want to hear it.”
    The only story here is that these tapes apparently ring the death knell for attorney-client privilege! Move along folks.....!

    Others have said the same thing about Hillary but you guys are still investigating her.
    Good luck with that.

  • Vegas1989

    I agree with you. I'll bring the popcorn.

  • Quitedeliteful

    It will be interesting to see how this plays out. I know these these take time and being meticulous is a must but I'm anxious to see some resolution...

  • P0shzZ0la

    BWAHAHA....But Hillary committed crimes....Trump didn't....! For example, Trump told them to go ahead and listen to the tape. He has nothing to hide. Hillary erased 33,000 emails...PLENTY to hide....! She used her "Secretary of State" position to sell America under the bus. She lost and now the Clinton foundation is tanking....the Clintons must of enjoyed that commercial flight they took recently....! TDS (Trump Derangement Syndrome) is hot and heavy and always leads to the nonsensical liberals, SJWs, DemoCraps along with some RepubliCons losing....Trump's approval numbers are rising while liberals commit suicide and create platforms like #WALKAWAY because people are simply getting tired of all the Trump bashing which amounts to nothing. In actuality, black people have no dog in this fight and shouldn't be following behind white liberals like sheeple....!

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    It's funny how worried Trump has been since the news of the raid of Cohen went public, but he has nothing to hide you say?

    Unless you've seen what's in those 33K emails you can't say whether they rise to the level of criminality.

    But I do know that Hillary hasn't been indicted on one single thing after having been investigated for the past 25 years.

  • Logan Roberts

    Where is Mike Pence? We never see or hear much from him. Shyt Dick Cheney, Joe biden & Al Gore never stayed this quiet as VP.

  • WhoKnew
  • WhoKnew

    Mike Pence is quiet because they have stuff on him too. If you'll recall he told a bunch of lies to the FBI to cover up for the rotten tomato. Also, if you'll recall he started a defense fund for himself weeks after the election. He called it a "relection fund campaign" which is whyte people speak for "somebody finna get locked up and I'm not using my 401K to pay for a hundred lawyers." Hopefully when this is all said and done they'll come for him too.

  • P0shzZ0la

    The only reason Hillary hasn't been indicted is because of the criminals in high positions protecting her! The Trump administration has a load of indictments ready to be released at the right time. Obama, Sessions, Comey, Lynch, and others are all a team. Keep in mind, the criminality of the Clintons goes back decades now it's just being exposed. If Clinton had nothing to hide she wouldn't have destroyed the 33,000 emails.
    Oh, by the way come to find out....the FBI has managed to recover the emails. Hillary deleted them after receiving a subpoena. A Clinton aid didn’t bleach-clean all her subpoenaed emails, just ones he stored in a data file he used to transfer the emails from the server to Clinton’s aides. They used BleachBit software to shred the ‘vehicle,’ but the email content still existed in the live email accounts.” The most damning evidence against Clinton may never have been actually destroyed. It was simply left untouched by the FBI. Get it....! THEY ARE PROTECTING HER....!
    BWAHAHA...Trump has nothing to hide and told them "go ahead and listen to the tape." That doesn't appear worried to me...! The #WALKAWAY movement is real and you should check-it-out. WOKE individuals are tired of the bullsh*t....!

  • Simone

    All of what you said is true. And I'll add: It's the death of Cohen's livelihood which is his career as an attorney. What fool would be his client in the future knowing he records conservations.

  • P0shzZ0la

    EXACTLY....but these idiots don't think whatsoever. The liberals, SJW's are totally corrupt and have no sense about the consequences of their foolish actions...!

  • P0shzZ0la

    I don't spend time on either one to be honest. However, it's clear you have no argument which is no surprise with brainwashed followers of the main-stream-media. Get a clue from the #WALKAWAY movement. YOU NEED TO TAKE THE RED-PILL and GET-OFF the plantation. I'm not going to continue going back-and-forth with your nonsense....GOOD BYE

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    My argument was of all of the investigations that I listed Hillary hasn't been indicted much less convicted of any crimes.
    Certainly you understood that.

  • Mister Fantastic

    You think that is the ONLY tape? That was an appetizer lol.
    If Trump knew there was a payout to those strippers that is a crime.

  • P0shzZ0la

    BWAHAHA....There's no crime here. Trump can pay-out his money to whomever he wants. If he used campaign money that would probably be a crime....but he didn't. Besides, they already tried the stupidity with the FAKE Russian Dossier...what happened with that? NOTHING....it was ALL made-up paid by Clinton, Obama, and the rest of their crew. But anyway, you're another person suffering from TDS (Trump Derangement Syndrome). It amazes me how stupid black people are...it's absolutely amazing. ..! Always claiming white people are racist but follow every word white folks say against their own good. Sorry...but kneegrows are just DAM DUMB (of course not all, but most) and there's no hope. I'm just not going to bother answering sleeping kneegrows anymore. BYE FOOL....!
    NO...I'm no longer replying to brainwashed plantation kneegrows, Maxine Waters and Obama supporters, white liberal followers, LBGTQUYAAPL supporters, SJWs, AntiFa, and uninformed confused "useful-idiots."

  • TransMichelle

    I believe students should be suing most of these schools for useless degrees. They just taking these kids money. The Donald was nice because it's nearly impossible for students who believe they were wronged to challenge the institutions in court and win a public settlement like the Trump University deal. They dragged it on because it's The Donald. Just like the degree you got in Lesbian Basket Weaving won't get you anywhere honey. Try suing the school. Toodles

    You have a valid point. My granddaughter was in pre-k this past school year. I was extremely nervous about the school (mostly black students and mostly white teachers). I was red alert nervous because it was in a neighborhood where no-account ninjas just stand on the corner all day rather than get a job. That usually spells trouble. Anyway, to put my mind at ease, I went to the school, took a tour, sat down and had a conversation with her 3 teachers. I loved the school and the teachers. So when a white client of my son's said he could help my son with vouchers to get his daughter into a predominately white school in an upscale neighborhood, he did the math and would still have to come up with $10k a year for a kindergartner. He set about increasing his work clientele so he could pay it. Then we had a conversation and we realized for what. She was getting the same education at this inner city charter school and all it was costing him per month was around $350. So needless to say she will be returning to her same school in September.

  • hottlanta

    Wow in the official WH transcript they left out the question on purpose when the guy asked Putin did he want Dump to win and Putin answered yes I did. Can't make this stuff up. But they did leave in the question did you have any of your people to help Dump win and he said yes I did. Now these questions have gone to the official archivist. I am sure Mueller wants them as well.

  • hottlanta

    10K for a kindergartener. They ain't coming home until the Xmas holidays. My kids and other black kids just like them have got a better education for free.
