Former Mueller Aide Answers Trump Tweet: What Kind of Lawyer Tapes a Client? One Who 'Doesn’t Trust' Them
Former Robert Mueller aide and MSNBC analyst Chuck Rosenberg had an answer for the Twitter question President Donald Trump asked this morning about his ex-lawyer Michael Cohen.
Trump asked on Twitter, "What kind of a lawyer would tape a client?"
Rosenberg responded on MSNBC, “What kind of lawyer would tape his client? Presumably, a lawyer that doesn’t trust his client."
“I’ve not heard of it. I’ve never done it. I don’t recommend it," he continued, joking that some lawyers may need to do it when dealing with corrupt clients.
“Not a best practice, but if you’re dealing with somebody you can’t trust, John, you know, maybe it is,” Rosenberg said.
He also explained that the tape itself isn't incriminating.
"You don't just go into a courtroom and hit play," Rosenberg said, adding that corroborating witnesses are required to verify the context and authenticity of the tape.
