Michael Cohen Reportedly Recorded Convo Telling Chris Cuomo He Paid Stormy Daniels ‘On My Own’

After the big Michael CohenDonald Trump taped dropped on CNN last night, there’s now new reporting on the contents of another tape Cohen recorded.

And per the Wall Street Journal, this particular Cohen conversation was with none other than CNN’s Chris Cuomo.

Cuomo––who aired the first Cohen tape at the top of last night’s Cuomo Prime Time––had apparently been speaking with Cohen about the Stormy Daniels payment:

“I did it on my own,” Mr. Cohen said of the payment, according to the people familiar with the matter. The conversation took place after The Wall Street Journal in January revealed that Mr. Cohen had arranged the payment to Ms. Clifford…

At one point, asked if the payment could be construed as an in-kind contribution, Mr. Cohen responds: “It wasn’t for the campaign. It was for him,” referring to Mr. Trump, according to a person familiar with the matter.

The Journal‘s report says Cohen “assured” Cuomo he “wasn’t running a tape.”

Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani has provided this statement to NBC News in response:
