Trump's Response to Michael Cohen's Tape About Paying a Playboy Model Shows Just How He Feels
On Friday, The New York Times reported that President Donald Trump's former personal attorney, Michael Cohen, secretly recorded the conversation they had prior to the election about paying off Playboy model Karen McDougal, who alleged that she had an affair with Trump. And now the FBI is in possession of the recording, according to CNN. On Saturday morning around 5 a.m., Trump responded to the Michael Cohen tapes with his own passionate accusation.
If the payment was made to cover an affair, though, it could be considered an "in-kind contribution" to Trump's campaign. And the amount is reportedly $126,500 "above what he's allowed to give," Trevor Potter, a former chairman of the Federal Election Commission, told Business Insider.
