Cohen recorded Trump discussing payment to ex-Playmate. The FBI is in possession of a recording between President Donald Trump and his former personal attorney, Michael Cohen, in which the two men discuss a payment to a former Playboy model who has alleged an affair with Trump, Rudy Giuliani and a source familiar with the matter told CNN Friday.
The recording was among the troves of documents and materials seized in the FBI raid of Cohen's hotel, residence and office earlier this year. A transcript of the recording was reviewed by the Trump legal team, which does not believe it is a legal problem for the President.
The revelation was first reported by The New York Times, which said Cohen secretly made the recording two months before the 2016 presidential election. Ref. CNN.
