UNITED NEWS INTERNATIONAL (UNI) — A tape has leaked which appears to show U.S. President Donald Trump and his former attorney discussing paying off a Playboy model to keep quiet about an alleged affair with Trump.
The audiotape, aired by CNN on July 24, was recorded in September 2016, two months before Trump was elected.
Trump and his former attorney, Michael Cohen, can be heard reportedly discussing how they would buy the rights to former Playboy model Karen McDougal’s story about an alleged affair she had with Trump in 2006.
The tape was reportedly among those discovered during an FBI raid on Cohen’s property earlier this year.
Trump’s current lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, said no money was paid, and the tape does not show evidence of any crime.
Trump also slammed Cohen on Twitter, asking, “What kind of a lawyer would tape a client?”
