WASHINGTON – Presidential candidate Donald Trump is being discussed on tape with his lawyer Michael Cohen on how they would acquire the rights to the story of a Playboy model about an alleged affair that Trump had years ago, according to the recorded voice of the conversation CNN's "Cuomo Prime Time".
The recording offers the public an insight into the confidential discussions between Trump and Cohen. According to CNN, it confirms that the man who now occupies the Oval Office at the same time was aware of a proposal to buy the rights to the story of Karen McDougal, a woman who claimed about a decade ago that she had an extramarital affair with Trump  Cohen told Trump about his plans to start a business and finance the purchase of the rights of American Media, which publishes the National Enquirer. The record captures something that seems to be a routine business conversation of several affairs on their agenda. The tone is confused and the meaning of Trump's use of the word "cash" is denied by both sides.
"I have to open a company for the transfer of all this information about our friend David," Cohen said in the recording probably a reference to David Pecker, the head of the American media company.
When the financing comes up later in the conversation, Trump interrupts Cohen and asks: "What financing?", The recording says. As Cohen Trump says, "We have to pay," Trump says, "pay with cash," but the tone is confused and it's unclear whether he suggests paying in cash or not. Cohen says, "No, no," but it's not clear what's being said next.
Trump never made a payment, said Rudy Giuliani, the president's lawyer. Giuliani has previously confirmed that the recorded discussion refers to the purchase of story rights.
"There is no evidence that a crime is committed on this tape," Giuliani said Tuesday night on Fox News Channel
The recording was delivered to CNN in September 2016 by Cohen & # 39; s lawyer Lanny Davis. It is the recent collapse in the decade-long relationship between Trump and Cohen who once said he would take a bullet for the president. Cohen has made it clear in recent weeks that he is ready to work with US prosecutors.
"This is about honesty against false censure of Michael Cohen, why does Giuliani mistakenly reject Michael Cohen – because they fear him," Davis said in "Cuomo Prime Time."
"What are you afraid of, Chris, why do I represent him, you fear he has the truth about Donald Trump, he will one day tell the truth about Donald Trump, the truth is that, as Donald Trump," cash "said Rudy Giuliani knows that only drug dealers and gangsters talk about money, was it, you heard Michael Cohen … say something?" No, no, no, no. "
Davis later added," Mine Ladies and gentlemen, if you have voted for Donald Trump, listen to the tape and ask yourself: Does Donald Trump run when he said he did not need the word "cash" and accused Michael Cohen of the word "cash"? use? Cohen was vilified. Cohen was insulted and insulted by people around Donald Trump.
Giuliani and Alan Futerfas, an attorney for the Trump organization, refuted that the tape shows that Trump is offering a cash payment.
"There is no. So the president will start a company and then use cash, unless 'You're a complete idiot,' Giuliani said in the Fox News on Tuesday night.
"This came with a very, very vile description of what was on the tape?
Cash, in entertainment, was related to how a deal would be funded, Futerfas said.
"Whoever tells Davis that money in this conversation refers to green currency lie to him, "said Futerfas CNN." There is no transaction in green currency. It does not happen. The whole thing never happened. If it did, it would be a payment to a large company, which of course would be accompanied by a sales agreement. These documents would be prepared by lawyers on both sides. "
" The word cash originated in the context of the distinction between referenced funding and no funding, which means a full payment, a one time total payment. In this context, the word cash is used, "he said." Anyone who knows anything about the company or knows how the president does business knows that there is no green money. Everything is documented. Every penny is documented. "
On the tape, Cohen also says," I talked to Allen Weissselberg (chief financial officer of the Trump organization) about how to fund it. "
Fulteras declined to answer whether the payment was from the company or Trump's personal finances, saying Weissselberg wore two hats for Trump and his company." I do not even know what Michael Cohen said to Allen Weisselberg Allen is an accountant and handles applications for transactions that are given to him, "Fuchteras said.
According to the court, federal prosecutors received 12 audio recordings of the Cohen FBI raids earlier this year, CNN previously reported that the lawyers Trump and Cohen's recording of Trump and Cohen's recordings of whether Trump should buy the rights of American Media's story, McDougal paid $ 150,000 in August 2016.
for her story about an alleged 10-month affair with Trump. The story was never published by AMI.  A lawyer for AMI refused to comment on Tuesday evening.
A spokesman for Manhattan's US law firm investigating Cohen declined to comment.
