Rudy Giuliani accuses Michael Cohen of tampering with Trump recording

Rudy Giuliani accuses Michael Cohen of tampering with Trump recording

"By Cohen's account, Trump approved going ahead with the meeting with the Russians, according to sources", CNN reported. While his private recordings of Trump and others have been seized by investigators, he has not yet produced evidence to support his claim that Trump knew of the Trump Tower meeting.

And both Trump and Trump Jr have repeatedly denied that Trump knew about the meeting before it happened.

But the fierce criticism could create a new legal problem for Trump, given that Cohen worked as his lawyer for 11 years. This is the kind of witness that can really destroy your whole case, because any finder of fact loses confidence in the case when you rely on a guy like this.

Trump Jr. had previously confirmed the meeting by tweeting out an email exchange between himself and publicist Rob Goldstone.

"Even the meeting itself - while it certainly doesn't seem praise-worthy that American political candidates or their team would be meeting with a Russian lawyer to try to get dirt on Hillary Clinton that was being offered to them - that falls a long way from any hint of collusion between Trump and the Kremlin", Mr. Wallace said, Mediaite reported.

Manafort has been the first former Trump campaign aide jailed.

Twitter Stock Drops More than 18% in Morning Trading
In May and June, it suspended 70 million fake or suspicious accounts before they became part of the company's official MAU count. Global ad revenue grew 40%, to $308 million - the first time non-U.S. sales represented the majority of total ad revenue.

Cohen's own lawyer, Davis, has compared the Cohen tape to the Watergate tapes that ultimately forced Republican president Richard Nixon to resign in 1974 as impeachment loomed. Mr. Cohen does not have any evidence such as audiotapes verifying his claims, CNN's sources said.

"After news of the meeting broke in July 2017, the Trump team offered misleading explanations and changed their story several times".

John Catsimatidis, the billionaire businessman and prolific donor who ran for NY mayor in 2013, said he remembers Cohen reaching out shortly after Catsimatidis announced his mayoral bid.

He told CNN's Chris Cuomo on Thursday night: "I expected something like this from Cohen". He has appeared increasingly willing to cooperate with investigators in recent weeks, and the revelation that Cohen secretly recorded conversations has raised questions about what incriminating information he may have on the president.

Trump denied knowledge of the meeting in a tweet Friday morning. His father used a blocked phone number at his home at the time, according to former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski.

The news follows CNN's publication of a recording from September 2016 of a conversation between Cohen and Trump discussing how they would buy the rights to a Playboy model's story about an alleged affair with Trump. Second, Trump could have known about the meeting and Trump Jr. may not have been the source of that information.

On Friday, Daniels' lawyer, Michael Avenatti, said he was representing three additional women who also allegedly made payments to hide affairs with Trump.

Trump Jr. told the Senate Judiciary Committee that he did not remember with whom he spoke at that time, but others testified that his father, Donald Trump, uses a blocked line.

Giuliani, who called Cohen "an honest, honorable lawyer" as recently as May, has criticized Cohen in recent days.

On Twitter Friday morning, Trump also lashed out at the Mueller probe and suggested, without evidence, that in fact it was Democrats and not his own campaign that had colluded with Russian Federation to interfere in the 2016 election.

Friday's tweet storm from the President included another denunciation of Mueller's investigation as "the rigged Witch Hunt".
