Prosecutors have at least 12 recordings by Trump lawyer Cohen

Prosecutors have at least 12 recordings by Trump lawyer Cohen

A dozen audio recordings seized by the FBI from President Donald Trump's former lawyer, Michael Cohen, were forwarded to federal prosecutors after lawyers dropped challenges on attorney-client privilege grounds, a former judge revealed Monday.

And now Avenatti, buoyed by the news that the Federal Bureau of Investigation is in possession of at least one such tape which was secretly recorded by Cohen, told MSNBC's Ari Melber that he is absolutely certain that Trump's former ally has more damaging tapes in his possession - possibly even one where the two discussed the $130,000 payment made to Stormy Daniels for keeping her mouth shut about her affair with Donald Trump.

They acted on search warrants that were based in part on information obtained by Russian Federation special counsel Robert Mueller's investigators.

It has been three days since news broke that U.S. President Donald Trump's former lawyer Michael Cohen secretly recorded their conversation about a possible payout to a former Playboy model over the story of her affair with Trump.

New York, where the taping reportedly took place, legally requires only one person's consent for such a recording, suggesting it would not be illegal.

The state allows the recording of conversations if one party consents to it-in this case, the consenting party was Gargac. In total, Gargac streamed more than 700 rides with passengers including children.

Giuliani said there was no indication on the tape that Trump knew before the conversation about the payment from the Enquirer's parent company, American Media Inc., to McDougal.

It's not clear if these 12 audio recordings are related to the Playmate payoff or similar hush payments, like the one to porn actor Stormy Daniels.

Giuliani claimed that the tape was exculpatory for Trump.

Trump's legal team chose to revoke the privilege designation on that tape, multiple publications reported over the weekend and a source with knowledge of the withdrawal confirmed to Business Insider.

Avenatti also said he knows the "substance of some of the tapes". "This is not a man shocked when Mr. Cohen said, we have to make payments", Davis concluded.

Still, industry analysts said it is unusual for automakers to request refunds for two previous years, as Tesla has demanded. As pressure mounted to ramp up Model 3 production, Musk set up a tent outside Tesla's plant in Fremont, California.

Giuliani has said no campaign funding was involved in the discussion between Trump and Cohen.

Karen McDougal said had a sexual relationship with Trump in 2006.

The Enquirer's payment to McDougal gave the tabloid the exclusive rights to any story she might ever wish to tell about having an affair with a married man. Avenatti has been a nuisance for Cohen throughout his legal representation for Stormy Daniels, but he recently encountered Cohen and held an "extremely productive" chat with him a NY restaurant.

Federal prosecutors have been investigating whether Cohen's actions, including a payment to adult film star Stormy Daniels, violated campaign-finance laws as part of a wide-ranging corruption probe into the longtime Trump fixer.

"I think", Avenatti added, "you've seen an evolution by Michael Cohen over the last month or so, with the retention of Lanny Davis and others", referring to Cohen's recent hiring of the former Clinton White House official who wrote a book arguing former FBI Director James Comey cost Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton the 2016 election.

And that solid form out in Russian Federation means Manchester United have come calling. That's the big question on every fans' lips as they enter the new season.

Monday's filing came from a court-appointed official who is reviewing claims by Cohen's and Trump's lawyers about which of the materials seized from Cohen are shielded by attorney-client privilege.
