Donald Trump’s attorney Rudy Giuliani confirmed in a statement to CNN that the president’s longtime “fixer” Michael Cohen had other recordings seized by the FBI in wake of the news that the bureau had a tape of the president and his former attorney discussing a payout to Playboy model in 2016.
“The president said ‘I can’t believe Michael would do this with me,'” the statement, read by host John King, noted. “Michael Cohen has other recordings in his records that were seized by the FBI.”
As CNN’s Oliver Darcy noted, the knowledge of Trump’s reactions came to the network from an unnamed source close to the matter and Giuliani.
