Michael Cohen Secretly Taped Trump Discussing Playboy Model Payoff

Update: The Wall Street Journal adds some interesting color to the story - reporting that Cohen taped the conversation in personthat they discussed acquiring the rights to McDougal's story which was previously sold to the National Enquirer's parent company, and that the recording, which was under two minutes long, cuts out before the conversation ended

President Trump's former longtime attorney, Michael Cohen, secretly recorded Trump two months before the 2016 US election discussing payments to a former Playboy model who said she and Trump had an affair, according to the New York Times, citing lawyers and others familiar with the recording which was seized during an FBI raid on Cohen's office.

The existence of the recording will undoubtedly kick open the door to tactics Trump and his associates have used to keep aspects of his business dealings and personal life secret, posits the Times, while it also highlights the potential legal and political danger that Cohen poses to Trump. 

Cast outside of Trump's inner circle, Cohen recently lawyered up with longtime Clinton pal Lanny Davis, who suggested two weeks ago that Cohen cooperating with prosecutors might not work out so well for Trump.
