Well from what I recall, the word was that Cohen had a compulsive habit of recording his conversations with Trump, so this is probably one of many that will surface.

Whether he realized it or not, Giuliani just authenticated the recording - and any others that Cohen may have in the future.

I know: "How could he not acknowledge something so obvious and easily proved?"

Yes, but how could Trump and his administration not acknowledge everything else he's blatantly lied about so far?

Gaslighting and claiming that the recordings are bogus are his only way out. Giuliani just admitted that the tapes are real.

He probably did it so he could use it as blackmail in case Trump tried to stiff him. Cohen probably saw what Trump used to do to his contractors and used his recordings as his insurance policy.

Good point. And with any luck, Cohen will sing like a canary.

I guess, come to think on it, I would be more surprised if Cohen hadn't taken such precautions. It would mean someone who knows the kind of shit Il Douche is capable of finds him to be trustworthy and loyal.

Cohen's attorney, Lanny Davis, appeared on Chris Cuomo's CNN show this evening, and played the recording of the call between Cohen and Trump, in which they discussed the payment to Karen McDougal.

I'll admit that I am not expert on the attractiveness of men, but I can't help but wonder what on earth these women see in him. If I was a female, I would find him gross and would be unable to suppress my gag reflex long enough to service him. Is being rich (or at least appearing to be rich) enough to make women able to do things with such an unattractive, unintelligent, inarticulate, boorish piece of crap?

they say money is a great aphrodisiac He's not the only old, ugly, fat guy with a younger sexy wife or girlfriend. Harvey Weinstein was another example, he is 66 and his ex wife is 42 .

Trump tweets out "What kind of lawyer would tape a client?"

"I never thought the leopard would eat my face," said man who hired face-eating leopard.

You have heard of the concept of "rich guys get hot chicks" right?

I saw a local billionaire with a young girl who I thought was his daughter , but it was his 2nd wife. He did have to pay out a billion or so to his first wife in the divorce.

another local billionaire avoided divorce by building a 5 stay hotel for his wife to "run" . They have a management team that actually runs the hotel but the wife and her daughter don't do much besides pick out interior design stuff like drapes , carpets, etc.

this is the place https://www.theumstead.com/

A lawyer with a criminal for a client.

And...apparently the arrest of Stormy Daniels was a set-up....

I'm super surprised. Is anyone else super surprised?
