Trump-Cohen Case Received 12 More Audio Recordings

The relationship between President Trump and his former personal attorney Michael Cohen has just become much more complicated.

Recently, news broke stating that Cohen recorded Trump discussing payment with a model with whom Trump had an affair. Now it has been reported that Trump’s prosecutors have received twelve more audio files of recordings, demonstrating Cohen’s full commitment to the investigation.

The FBI gathered initial recordings from Cohen’s residence in April. While Cohen stated last year that he “would take a bullet for Trump,” he has apparently decided to prioritize his personal life and family.

A federal judge allowed prosecutors access to the tapes, as the recordings were initially protected through attorney-client privileges.

Trump’s team has long tried to dismiss the relevancy of tapes. Trump’s attorney, Rudy Giuliani, said on Friday that the recordings were not likely to compromise the outcome of the investigation. He stated:

“[The length of the call] can’t be more than a minute and a half … It’s not some secret conversation. Neither one seems to be concerned anyone would hear it. It went off on irrelevant subjects that have nothing to do with this. It’s a very professional conversation between a client and a lawyer and the client saying, ‘Do it right.’ … 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.”

On the other hand, Cohen’s cooperation with prosecutors was intended to benefit the country.

Trump weighed in on the subject over the weekend, tweeting:

“Inconceivable that the government would break into a lawyer’s office (early in the morning) – almost unheard of. Even more inconceivable that a lawyer would tape a client – totally unheard of & perhaps illegal. The good news is that your favorite President did nothing wrong!”

The case is still currently unfolding, and whether the tapes will become relevant in the near future or not will soon be decided.
