On Tuesday, Micael Cohen’s lawyer, Lanny Davis sat down with CNN’s Chris Cuomo and hammered President Donald Trump after Cuomo played never before heard tapes of conversations between Cohen and the president.
The tape details payments made to porn stars that President Tump had affairs with months before the 2016 presidential election.
“America, listen to the tape. It doesn’t say what you just heard. It says ‘cash,’ and it’s Mr. Cohen, who says, I’m a lawyer representing a client, so believe your own ears, and when Richard Nixon had a tape that he couldn’t dispute, the tape says what it says, and I put a tweet out and said, listen to the tapes. So everyone out there, listen to the tapes. Whatever spin Mr. Giuliani is trying to invent, it says “cash,” and Michael Cohen says, no,” Davis said.
“There is no way to spin the two falsehoods that Mr. Giuliani, on behalf of his client, Donald Trump, told America to disparage my client. One is that this is the first time that he heard about the Karen McDougal issue. Listen to the tape, everyone. This is not a man shocked when Mr. Cohen said, we have to make payments,” Davis concluded.

Joy Reid medical expert blasts the president’s lies on coronavirus: ‘Trump needs to stay in his lane’
MSNBC anchor Joy Reid interviewed Dr. Bernard B. Ashby about the latest coming from the White House on the coronavirus pandemic.
"If, for instance, you did not test for pregnancy, does it mean you are not pregnant?" Reid asked.
Ashby, a cardiologist from Miami, praised the anchor on her new primetime show, "The ReidOut," but did not directly answer the question.
"And in terms of the whole discourse, the fact that I'm having to respond to Trump about clinical medicine is ridiculous," Dr. Ashby explained.
"Trump needs to stay in his lane. Like, we went to medical school for a long time, we did training for a long time to speak on exactly what ... we have the expertise to speak on and the fact that Trump is asserting himself in academic medicine, into clinical medicine is ridiculous," he explained.
GOP governor blocks local officials from forcing private schools to only hold classes online
On Monday, The Daily Beast reported that Gov. Larry Hogan (R-MD) is overriding a local order from Montgomery County restricting private schools to operating online only, as a safety precaution against the coronavirus outbreak raging in the area.
"Hogan issued an emergency order Monday that said private schools’ reopening would be up to individual schools and not mandated by the state," reported Madeline Charbonneau. "'The blanket closure mandate imposed by Montgomery County was overly broad and inconsistent with the powers intended to be delegated to the county health officer,' Hogan said."
