Giuliani Wants Public To Hear Cohen Tapes

Rudy Giuliani, a leading attorney for President Donald Trump, told Fox News on Saturday that two experts and retired Federal Bureau of Investigation agents have examined the tape Michael Cohen secretly recorded of Trump in 2016 and concluded it has been tampered with.

Mr. Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner, son Donald Jr., and top campaign official Paul Manafort met at Trump Tower on June 9, 2016 with Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya, who had said that she was offering information from the Russian government aimed at helping Mr. Trump to victory.

Rudy Giuliani, the president's attorney, told CNN's Chris Cuomo on "Cuomo Prime Time" Thursday night that Cohen is a liar and has been lying for years.

"The idea Michael Cohen was taping him, when I heard that, I felt like we were back in the 26th floor of Trump Tower", Nunberg said, referring to the Manhattan headquarters of Trump's campaign.

Trump's tweet about Cohen followed two others in which the president slammed special counsel Robert Mueller and his investigation in Russian meddling in the 2016 election.

"What it's going to change here is now the playing field is shaped just a little bit differently", Costello said Friday on CNN's "New Day." "The president they think is facing more pushback from the establishment than other presidents have, that's how they see it", Salvanto told CBS' "Face the Nation" on Sunday. "Look, they're obviously trying to undermine Cohen's credibility", Abrams said. He cited the president's tweets as being helpful to Mr. Trump's legal case, saying he has been able to lay out his defense for not granting an interview to Mueller's team.

Cohen was in the room when Trump was told of it. And he has said in the past that the president didn't know about this nothing. According to CNN, federal prosecutors have received a total of 12 audio recordings seized by the FBI, including the McDougal conversation - which is reportedly the only tape in evidence that features Cohen and Trump.

Mr. Trump's failure to publicly denounce Putin's role in the 2016 election caused concern across the political world, leading many to question if the president had more faith in a known US adversary than his own intelligence chiefs.

In May, Giuliani called Cohen an "honest, honorable lawyer", Wallace noted.

Cohen has recently made a concerted effort to distance himself from Trump.

The recording then became unclear and it is not certain whether Trump was suggesting a cash payment or that they should not pay in cash.
