Trump attacks Michael Cohen over 'Playboy model payment tape'
21 July, 2018, 18:40
But according to CNN, Trump may have even more to worry about than the McDougal tape.
President Donald Trump has condemned his former lawyer Michael Cohen amid U.S. media reports that he secretly recorded Mr Trump discussing payments to a former Playboy model.
A person familiar with a federal investigation into Cohen tells The Associated Press that Cohen made the recording two months before Trump's 2016 election. "The good news is that your favourite President did nothing wrong!".
His lawyer has said the payment was never made.
The FBI raided Cohen's office, home and hotel room in April, searching in part for information about payments to McDougal and porn actress Stormy Daniels, who received a $130,000 payment from Cohen before the election to keep quiet about a sexual relationship she says she had with Trump.
Since then, Cohen has publicly distanced himself from the president and remains under investigation by the government.
The president said it was "perhaps illegal" for a lawyer to record a client.
US President Donald Trump has said it was "perhaps illegal" for a lawyer to record a client, a day after reports his one-time attorney had recorded them both discussing buying the rights to a story by a woman who said she had an affair with Mr Trump.
"Inconceivable that the government would break into a lawyer's office (early in the morning) - nearly unheard of", he tweeted. He also said that Trump told Cohen that any payment should be by check, not cash, so it could be documented properly.
The FBI investigation stemmed in part from a referral by the U.S. special counsel's office, which is looking into possible coordination during the election campaign between Trump's aides and Russian officials. Cohen has not yet been arrested or charged.
The Wall Street Journalreported in November 2016 that McDougal was paid $150,000 by American Media Inc. - the parent company to the National Enquirer - for the rights to the story, but it never ran. The hush money payment raises serious concerns about potential campaign finance violations, many experts have said.
The White House has said that Mr Trump denies having an affair with Ms McDougal and that he has denied having sex with Stormy Daniels.
