Giuliani Accidentally Admits There Are Tapes Of Trump And Cohen
President Donald Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani accidentally admitted there are tapes of Trump talking to his former lawyer Michael Cohen who has implicated Trump in crimes and in dealings with Russia (video below).
Giuliani told The New Yorker about the tapes, then denied their existence, but admitted they do exist:
I have been through all the tapes, I have been through all the texts, I have been through all the e-mails, and I knew none existed… I shouldn’t have said tapes. They alleged there were texts and e-mails that corroborated that Cohen was saying the president told him to lie. No tapes. Well, I have listened to tapes, but none of them concern this.
Andrew Kirtzman, author of Giuliani’s biography, Emperor of the City, expressed his amazement of Giuliani’’s incompetence on CNN:
He may be trying to soften the grounds for future revelations. He’s botching it so badly he’s almost making the case against the president. It’s unfortunate. Giuliani was known for his precision. Not to mention his magnificent larger than life heroics. This is a man who still has an honorary knighthood from the British Order. His legacy as the man who rose above 9/11 seems far away now.
