According to the New York Times, the Federal Bureau of Investigation is in possession of a taped recording of a conversation he had with his former lawyer Michael Cohen discussing a hush money payment to a former Playboy model Karen McDougal.
It was revealed earlier this year that he shelled out $130,000 to porn star Stormy Daniels just before the 2016 presidential election as part of a nondisclosure agreement for her silence about an alleged affair with Trump in 2006.
"Inconceivable that the government would break into a lawyer's office (early in the morning) - nearly unheard of", he tweeted. Even more inconceivable that a lawyer would tape a client - totally unheard of & perhaps illegal.
The recording - which was made shortly before the presidential election - was seized during an Federal Bureau of Investigation raid on Cohen's office in April, the Times reported, citing lawyers and others familiar with the recording.
But, possibly in reference to questions about whether he had violated any campaign finance laws, Trump added that "your favorite President did nothing wrong!" (AMI), the parent company of the National Enquirer. Giuliani also denied Trump had an affair with McDougal.
Giuliani also said that no campaign funding was involved in the discussion between Trump and Cohen, who has distanced himself from Trump as the FBI investigates business dealings undertaken by the president's former lawyer. He said the tape would show that Trump makes it clear that if there is going to be a payment, it should be done by check, which would be easily traced.
In the 90-second audio recording, according to the Post, Cohen can be heard urging Trump to buy the rights to the woman's story after it was purchased by American Media Inc.
