Trump Responds To “Inconceivable, Perhaps Illegal” Cohen Tape Revelation

Originally appeared at Zero Hedge

Having withheld his comments all day Friday to the NYT revelation that his former lawyer Michael Cohen secretly recorded one of their conversations before the 2016 election dicussing a payment over the story of a former Playboy model’s alleged affair with Trump, Trump broke his silence on Saturday morning using his favorite medium.

“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!” Trump tweeted.

Some immediately took the occasion to make the distinction between their “favorite president” and Donald Trump.

Trump’s comment was in response to the NYT report that Cohen had secretly taped a conversation he had with Trump in 2016 about paying former Playboy model Karen McDougal, who has claimed she had a year-long affair with Trump starting in 2006 after he married Melania Trump.

Later on Friday, the WaPo detailed that the in the conversation the two discussed whether to purchase the rights to McDougal’s account of her alleged affair.

The release of the tape has sparked a widespread debate about the sanctity of attorney-client privilege, and its use in “one-party” consent states.

Trump’s latest personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani confirmed to The Post that the recording existed but declined to discuss details and said a payment was never made. He also claimed that nothing in the tape shows that Trump “had any knowledge of it in advance.”

“Nothing in that conversation suggests that he had any knowledge of it in advance,” Giuliani told The New York Times of the taped conversation about the payment. “In the big scheme of things, it’s powerful exculpatory evidence,” he added.

Meanwhile, Stormy Daniels’s activist lawyer, Michael Avenatti, said Michael Cohen has several audio recordings of President Trump discussing women who have come forward after allegedly having affairs with Trump.

Avenatti told MSNBC on Friday that there are more tapes: “I know for a fact that this is not the only tape,” Avenatti said. “I think this is a very serious matter and I think that any or all audio tapes that Michael Cohen has in his possession relating to this president should be released for the public.”

      I agree, but I have got to the stage where, I believe the US is so out of control, they need to be cut off from the outside World.

      All I can say on this matter is that people who are rich, famous and/or live in glass houses should learn to keep their dicks in their pants if they are serious about their careers. Not because I’m a puritan, but because it will come out and it will be used against them by their enemies.

      I can understand that when you’re rich and/or famous pussy comes easy to you, and all the women who ignored you when you were just a regular poor joe now throw themselves at you. It’s hard to say no when the going suddenly gets easy, and the little brain starts taking over. But when you have lots to lose you cannot afford to let your dick make the decisions for you.

    The biggest problem is that there are idiots that do care about this. These are also the same people who cannot be trusted to dress and feed themselves.

    This is HUGE. The United States President in an postulated affair with playboy model Karen. I am sure Trump did nothing wrong, grabbing pussy is not illegal although the liberals wants to forbid that too.
    But how far did Karen Golddigger go, did she wear a bra and how did she seduce Trump?

    If people in US law enforcement were even remotely interested in the national good. They would raid the synagogues during the blood sucking baby raping rituals, arrest the perverts there, charge them with felonies, close the synagogues, and outlaw Judaism.

      Blood sucking Jew pedophile raping a child. In nations where Jews live they can rape their children, infect them with venereal disease, brain damage and murder them with impunity. While non Jews are given long prison sentences and the death penalty for the same crimes.

            “as with any right, the freedom of religion can be abridged if its exercise would infringe on the rights of others.

            As a result, several groups have been made into recognized criminal organizations. … These cults have generally been involved with activities like murder, abduction, statutory rape, or other serious crimes. Often, they hold an illegal activity to be a primary focus of their religious teachings, making adherence to the group’s beliefs a virtual guarantee of grossly illegal activity directly harming others.”

    Distraction. They always bring out an attention grabber when they don’t want you to look in a certain direction. So what scurrilous law are they trying to pass this time?
