Chris Cuomo, Kara Scannell and Eli Watkins at CNN: Presidential candidate Donald Trump is heard on tape discussing with his attorney Michael Cohen how they would buy the rights to a Playboy model's story about an alleged affair Trump had with her years earlier, according to the audio recording of the conversation aired exclusively on CNN's "Cuomo Prime Time."
At the beginning of the tape, Trump can be heard asking about which pastor surrogates he can "use" to cover for him. Amazing. https://t.co/asXCjmrwRX— McKay Coppins (@mckaycoppins) July 25, 2018
As former prosecutor, 3 things notable about Cohen tape:— Adam Schiff (@RepAdamSchiff) July 25, 2018
1) Clear Giuliani was untruthful when he said Trump didn’t know
2) Goal was to kill story before election, so campaign motivated
3) Regardless of cash or check, whole point of phony corp. was to hide campaign expenditure
