Former attorney for President Donald Trump, Michael Cohen, did something that be so unethical as to be illegal. It appears that he has recorded conversations with his clients, including Donald Trump. When the FBI raided his office and home they seized a dozen of these recordings. All the evidence seized is being reviewed to see whether or not it can be released to the government. How many of these recordings are of Trump? We don’t know yet.
As Written and Reported By Chuck Ross for the Daily Caller:
Twelve audio files recorded by former Trump attorney Michael Cohen were handed over to federal prosecutors on Friday, according to a document filed Monday in federal court.
Barbara S. Jones, who is serving as special master in a review of documents seized from Cohen in an April 9 FBI raid, said in the court filing that the 12 recordings were provided to the government as part of its investigation into Cohen’s financial dealings.
“On July 20, 2018, the parties withdrew their designations of ‘privileged’ as to 12 audio items that were under consideration by the Special Master. Based upon those de-designations, the Special Master released the 12 items to the Government that day,” Jones wrote.
Jones, a former federal judge, is reviewing the hundreds of thousands of documents seized in the raids to see what can be released to the government and what is protected by attorney-client privilege.
Cohen recorded a conversation he had with President Donald Trump in 2016 about possible payments to a media company for a story about Karen McDougal, the Playboy playmate who claims to have had an affair with Trump in 2006, The New York Times reported Friday.
It is unclear whether the 11 other recordings are of conversations between Trump and Cohen.
