During the FBI's raid of Trump's lawyer's office, CNN reports they seized audio recordings between Stormy Daniels' laywer at the time, Keith Davidson, and Trump's current lawyer, Michael Cohen. Davidson also represented Playboy model Karen McDougal, who, like Daniels, is rumored to have had an affair with Trump.
A CNN source gave some details on the audio recordings, but no smoking gun. "Cohen was being unusually simplistic, like he had bullet points that he was reading from to try and make himself look good. He was trying to clarify the timeline of the agreements made with Davidson in his [Cohen's] favor," said the source.
However, even if there's no wrongdoing found in the recordings, it could lead to other legal issues for Cohen. As CNN notes, recording phone conversations without two consenting parties is illegal in certain states, like California where Davidson's office is based. And Davidson has no issue in suing Cohen if that's the case.
"Attorney Davidson never consented to any recordings of his conversations with Mr. Cohen. If they in fact do exist, Attorney Davidson will pursue all his legal rights under the law," said a spokesman for Davidson, Dave Wedge.
But that may be the least of Cohen's troubles as the Department of Justice says Cohen is "under criminal investigation" not only for his possible dealings with Daniels, but bank fraud, wire fraud and campaign finance issues as well. Cohen's court hearing is scheduled for Monday—and Daniels' current lawyer, Michael Avenatti told The Associated Press that it’s "very possible" the porn star will make an appearance. The tea is hot and it's brewing.
