Federal Agents Seized 'More Than 100 Recordings' from Michael Cohen in Additional to the Trump Hush Money Tape: Report
Federal agents are in possession of more than 100 recordings taken from President Donald Trump's former lawyer Michael Cohen, according to a new report from the Washington Post.
One of the recordings has already been released. On Tuesday night, CNN aired a recording of Trump and Cohen discussing a hush money payment to former Playboy model Karen McDougal, who says she had an affair with the president.
According to the Post's sources, the only recording in which Trump says anything of substance is the recording that has already been released. The others on which Trump appears, the report says, only include "snippets" of the president speaking.
Cohen's lawyer, Lanny Davis, told the Post that his client didn't make the recordings for any nefarious or untoward purposes. He mostly used them in lieu of taking notes, Davis said.
The report suggests that some of the recordings that do not include Trump may still pertain to Cohen's work for the president and his businesses.
