President Trump Slams Michael Cohen After CNN Airs Private Recording “What Kind of Lawyer Would Tape a Client?”

President Trump unleashed on his former attorney Michael Cohen Wednesday morning for recording a private conversation between them.

The FBI seized the recording during a pre-dawn raid of Michael Cohen’s home and office earlier this year.

The Drudge Report ran a blistering headline Wednesday morning, calling Michael Cohen “THE RAT” after he flipped on Trump.

“What kind of lawyer would tape a client?” President Trump asked.

Trump tweeted: 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!

On Tuesday evening, CNN aired a private recording of President Trump discussing with his attorney Michael Cohen how they would purchase rights to Playboy model Karen McDougal’s story about their 2006 affair.


The private recording is from a conversation between Trump and Cohen in September of 2016; Cohen’s lawyer Lanny Davis provided the recording to CNN.

McDougal sold her story to the National Inquirer for $150,000 but the tabloid, favoring Trump, didn’t run the story – a practice known as “catch-and-kill.”

Rudy Giuliani previously said Trump had no idea he was being recorded, didn’t make a payment and that he had done nothing wrong.

It’s a very short clip and the audio is muddled and inaudible; it’s basically a nothing-burger.

ICYMI here’s the audio:

President Trump previously lashed out at Michael Cohen for taping a private conversation between them and said it was probably illegal.

Trump tweeted: Inconceivable that the government would break into a lawyer’s office (early in the morning) – almost unheard of. Even more inconceivable that a lawyer would tape a client – totally unheard of & perhaps illegal. The good news is that your favorite President did nothing wrong!

The Deep State and Democrats are desperate to pin any type of ‘hush payment’ Trump may have made to any woman during the election as a campaign finance violation.

Michael Cohen also made a $130,000 payment to porn star Stormy Daniels in the weeks leading up to the election, which the FBI is also investigating.
