WATCH: Reporters Pummel Trump in Oval Office With Slew of Questions on Cohen Tapes
President Donald Trump made some brief remarks to reporters this afternoon with European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker.
But after the trade talk, a number of reporters tried to shout out questions about Michael Cohen.
To recap, CNN aired the tape last night of Trump and Cohen during the campaign talking about a payment to purchase the rights to Karen McDougal‘s story. (McDougal is the former Playboy model who alleged Trump had an affair with her.)
Cohen lawyer Lanny Davis says the tape clearly shows Trump talking about paying with cash, but Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani says he was telling Cohen not to use cash.
On the video from the pool spray you can hear reporters shouting out questions like “Did Michael Cohen betray you?” and “Are you worried about what Michael Cohen is going to say to prosecutors?”
This morning Trump tweeted in response to the tape and asked, “What kind of lawyer would tape a client?”
What kind of a lawyer would tape a client? So sad! Is this a first, never heard of it before? Why was the tape so abruptly terminated (cut) while I was presumably saying positive things? I hear there are other clients and many reporters that are taped – can this be so? Too bad!
