President Donald Trump is not having a good day.

According to the New York Times, the FBI is in possession of a taped recording of a conversation he had with his former lawyer Michael Cohen discussing a hush money payment to a former Playboy model Karen McDougal. McDougal has said she had an affair with the president.

The recording was reportedly seized in a federal raid on Cohen’s properties in April. The hush money payment raises serious concerns about potential campaign finance violations, many experts have said.

But according to CNN, Trump may have even more to worry about than the McDougal tape.

Dana Bash and Gloria Borger say that Trump remarked, “I can’t believe Michael would do this to me” after the April raid, according to a source.

They also say sources told them the FBI has many more recordings of the president.

“Definitely all kinds of tapes out there,” one person told them.
