FBI Has Tapes of Trump Directing Michael Cohen to Pay-Off a Playboy Model

This is not going to move the needle for the court evangelicals one bit.  It just confirms Trump is an adulterer and a liar.  But we already knew that.  For many conservative evangelicals, Brett Kavanaugh washes-away all sins.

Here is a taste of The Washington Post story:

Federal investigators have an audio recording in which then-presidential candidate Donald Trump and his personal attorney Michael Cohen discussed in September 2016 making payments for the story of Playboy centerfold Karen McDougal, who allegedly had an extramarital affair with Trump, according to two people familiar with the conversation.

The recording, made by Cohen, was seized by federal agents now investigating Trump’s longtime confidant for potential bank and campaign finance crimes, according to multiple familiar with the probe.

In a statement Friday, President Trump’s attorney Rudolph W. Giuliani confirmed the recording’s existence and said no payment was ever made. The New York Times first reported the existence of the recording.

Trump and Cohen discussed the possible payment after AMI, the parent company of the National Enquirer, bought the rights to McDougal’s story for $150,000 in August 2016, then sat on it.

    The same Guiliani who hath fallen from Mayor of New York during 9/11 to Tabaqui the Jackal claiming The President Can Issue Himself a Presidential Pardon for Any Cause Whatsoever? And that the’s Nothing in the Constitution to prevent this?

    (The reason that the Constitution is silent is because this idea – I’m In Power, I Can Pardon Myself – was so outside the realm of reality until now. The problem with it is obvious to everyone except lawyers and Born-Agains.)
