Michael Cohen Tape Suggests Team Trump Lied About Karen McDougal

Steven Clarke | 21 July, 2018, 17:36

"Inconceivable that the government would break into a lawyer's office (early in the morning) - nearly unheard of", he posted at 8:10 am.

"Even more inconceivable that a lawyer would tape a client - totally unheard of & perhaps illegal".

Giuliani, however, confirmed that the discussion between Trump and Cohen occurred - saying that they talked fewer than two minutes and the tape proved the president had done nothing wrong.

Trump told Cohen in the recorded conversation to make a potential payment in the form of a check so it could be documented, Giuliani said in the article.

Before the election, the Trump campaign denied any knowledge of payment to the former model, Karen McDougal, but the taped conversation could undermine those denials.

"The transaction that Michael is talking about on the tape never took place, but what's important is: If it did take place, the president said it has to be done correctly and it has to be done by check" to keep a proper record of it, Giuliani said.

Stormy Daniels attorney Michael Avenatti said Michael Cohen has several audio recordings of President TrumpDonald John TrumpNFL freezes policy barring players from protesting during anthem McConnell spokesman on Putin visit: "There is no invitation from Congress" Petition urges University of Virginia not to hire Marc Short MORE discussing women who have come forward after allegedly having affairs with Trump. Moscow denies USA allegations that it interfered in the election and Trump denies any campaign ties to Russian officials. It was not immediately clear where Trump and Cohen were located at the time of the call. The Enquirer is owned by American Media Inc, whose CEO, David Pecker, is a friend of Trump's.

Oil Prices Dip as Markets Eye Potential Supply Increases
Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said Monday that the United States' aim was to squeeze Iranian oil exports "to zero". If oil prices continue to remain above long-term equilibrium levels, the price collapse will repeat again.

A representative for McDougal has not responded to requests for comment.

McDougal has said she began a almost year-long affair with Trump in 2006 shortly after his wife, Melania, gave birth.

The tabloid sat on the story, preventing it from being made public in a practice known as "catch and kill".

Cohen said he paid Daniels $130,000 in exchange for her silence about her claim of the affair.

Under U.S. election law, presidential candidates must disclose campaign contributions, which are defined as things of value given to a campaign in order to influence an election.

The matter is a potential problem for Mr Trump because undisclosed payments to bury embarrassing stories about a political candidate can be treated as a violation of United States campaign finance laws. The FBI obtained a warrant to raid his properties in April as part of a federal criminal investigation into whether Cohen committed wire fraud, bank fraud, and campaign finance violations while working for Trump. Cohen has not been charged with any crime.
