#TrumpTapes – CNN today released some audio of President Donald Trump talking with Michael Cohen, his personal attorney. Michael Cohen apparently recorded Trump conversations to use for himself if something ever happened, or maybe because he was actually an anti-Trump operative for a significant period of time.
It’s reported that Michael Cohen was ostensibly Donald Trump’s fixer for certain things, like arranging a payment for porn star Stormy Daniels, who constantly threatened to come forward with allegations of an affair. However, Michael Cohen was secretly taping Trump during this period — and President Trump and his lawyer aren’t worried one bit about it.
The good news for President Trump is that Michael Cohen has absolutely nothing of substance. Listen to the #TrumpTapes here:

The left is, as usual, taking everything said completely out of context. In the tapes, Trump asks if he should pay by cash, to which Cohen replies no no no. This is simply a client asking his lawyer a question. No laws were broken, at all.
Then the tape conveniently ends just as Trump is about to ask “by check.”
It’s a big nothing burger hyped up to be something it’s not.
The conversation implicates President Trump in nothing and has no evidence whatsoever that Trump did anything illegal or even improper.
Here is Hannity also making clear that the Trump-Cohen tape is a “big dud” regarding the conversation, which implicates Trump in nothing and has no evidence whatsoever that Trump did anything illegal or even improper.
Here’s Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani assuring the public that Cohen will be disbarred for the leak of this time:
Twitter users voiced their opinion about the #TrumpTapes:
The more I listen to #TrumpTapes the less impressed I am. You’ve DJT secretly recorded in person with his lawyer (which means he’s at his MOST open/vulnerable) & all U get is him MAYBE referring to paying “David” in cash, which there is no evidence ever happened?! #NothingBurger

CNN is wasting our time #TrumpTapes
All they got is a bunch of bimbos, pre-election.
My president gets laid. Who cares? Have you seen the economy recently?

CNN publishes Trump-Cohen tape fragment. Though the recording reveals little new, its circumstances are extraordinary: Cohen recording his client with a covert pocket recorder; president’s lawyer raided by police, recording seized. Police or Cohen then shipping tape to CNN.
