The Dems are Still Trying to Create ‘Dark Files’ on President Trump
A Key member pf President Trump’s legal team, Rudy Giuliani said Saturday that somebody “played around” with the tape released by the President former personal lawyer Michael Cohen.
Saying that the recording played on CNN appears “doctored” and incomplete, Mr. Giuliani said in a TV interview that Mr. Cohen “abruptly ended that recording” as soon as Donald Trump said the word “check” during a conversation about paying a Playboy model who alleges she had an affair with President Trump over 10 years ago.
“What we are investigating is how did that happen?” Mr. Giuliani said. “What was eliminated?”
Mr. Giuliani askes, “How many of them did he play around with? He has 180 tapes.”
Saturday, Mr. Giuliani warned Michael Cohen about violating attorney-client privilege before his lawyer provided CNN with a private recording between the pair last week.
They have also cautioned Mr. Cohen against speaking publicly.
Mr. Cohen, who is under investigation by federal prosecutors in Manhattan for his role in paying XXXX Stormy Daniels $130,000 before the election to keep her quiet about an affair she alleged to have with President Trump, in early July that his first loyalty is to his family.
“My wife, my daughter and my son have my first loyalty and always will,” Mr. Cohen said.
“I put family and country first,” he added, signaling that he is willing to cooperate with special counsel Robert Mueller and prosecutors from the Southern District of New York, even if it puts President Trump in jeopardy.
“We have indicated to them that they should respect the client and attorney privilege in different ways,” Mr. Giuliani said. “We have complained to them that he’s violated the attorney-client privilege, publicly and privately.”
Mr. Giuliani defended his prior comments calling Cohen an “honest, honorable lawyer.”
“I do not know what happened to him,” Mr. Giuliani said. “A few months ago he was not telling all of these lies” a few months ago, I didn’t know he was a lawyer who recorded his clients secretly.
“I didn’t know him very well.”
