Trump denies wrongdoing after reports of attorney recording him buying rights to story
U.S. President Donald Trump denied any wrongdoing a day after reports that his onetime attorney Michael Cohen
This is that Cohen had recorded them both discussing buying the rights to a story by a woman who said she had an affair with Trump.
The president said in a tweet it might be illegal for a lawyer to record a client. An attorney for Cohen called Trump’s statement “false.”
“Inconceivable that the government would break into a lawyer’s office (early in the morning) - almost unheard of,” Trump tweeted, in an apparent reference to an FBI raid on Cohen in April.
“Even more inconceivable that a lawyer would tape a client - totally unheard of & perhaps illegal. The good news is that your favourite President did nothing wrong!” Trump added.
Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani told Reuters on Friday Cohen recorded a conversation with Trump in September, two months before the 2016 election, in which they discussed buying the rights to a story by a former Playboy model, Karen McDougal, who said she had an affair with Trump.Published: by Radio NewsHub
