But the question is why did he record such information?


Because Trump is untrustworthy. He constantly lies and breaks contracts. Fact.

This was theee months ago,


Three months ago? Revelations of Cohens recordings are only a week old.



Oh there you are. Yeah it says in your article that the F.B.I raided dudes place and acquired the recordings in April. So the F.B.I. Has been aware of the contents of the recording for months and have yet to act on it so it seems that it’s a nothingburger. The only thing they would be worried about is if Trump spent campaign money for illegal payments which he didn’t so there is nothing there in legal terms.

Also here is this part from your source.


“It can’t be more than a minute and a half,” Mr. Giuliani said, referring to the length of the conversation. “Twice someone walks in — someone brings soda in for them. It’s not some secret conversation.”

He added: “Neither one seems to be concerned anyone would hear it. It went off on irrelevant subjects that have nothing to do with this. It’s a very professional conversation between a client and a lawyer and the client saying, ‘Do it right.’”

Because the tape showed Mr. Trump learning about the A.M.I. payment, it actually helps Mr. Trump, Mr. Giuliani argued. “In the big scheme of things, it’s powerful exculpatory evidence,” he said.


Keep us updated!

Still seems this law violates the constitutions protections somehow. Its just no one has challenged this yet,and this i s perfect for the supreme court to decide on if its legal to do so without a warrant. The law also SPECIFICALLY States this is for Cell phones and cordless phones. If trump used a land line and cohen used a land line this is a disqualifier apparently. OR if trump was calling from somewhere where this law does not apply it can also be dropped.


From what I gather they were both in the same room. Not sure where. What’s the law say on that?

I see nothing wrong with what Trump did.

I believe the situation between Monica Lewinsky and Bill Clinton was waay worse.



After he lied, he later admitted that he lied.



And then he apologized for the lie.




And this was all during his presidency.


Meanwhile Trumps situation with a porn star which happened many years ago is actually a story? Honestly if he did that, good for him. What is the problem with him having some relations with a porn star? I bet you hollywood does this all the time. And what is the problem with keeping that private?

I think the fact that two consenting adults agreed to it, the rest of the populace really has no say in what he should or should not do behind closed doors and within the bedroom. If he wanted to keep this private, so what?

Frankly; Trumps sex life is non of our business.

And yet Trump is the main story?


What about the women that came forward exposing bill Clinton as a rapist? See where I am going here? Its basically utter hypocrisy. Period.

Just my five cents

What? Plowing porn stars behind his wife's back while she's just given birth to their infant son? I guess you must have a different perspective on life then I guess? Hey.... hey.... look... somebody theorized that maybe Melania gave Trump a pass to go plowing those porn stars as a gift ya know? It's a common thing these days... in 21st century marriages...

I think what you're trying to say is you don't feel Trump's cheating more than 10 years ago is of any relevance.

Otherwise people would "pay" attorneys large sums of money as a retainer to give directly to candidates and things that help candidates.


If the candidate pays his lawyer it's not a donation. Not sure why that's hard to understand. A donation goes to the campaign, not from the campaign (or the individual) to the donor.


You cant use a third party to launder the money to prevent campaign finance violations, that would be illegal.

That’s true but you have to prove where the money came from. You have to have a proven money trail.....ain’t none.

The more that comes out, the more disturbing this is starting to be, and creepy. Apparently, Cohen, when meeting with Trump, in the flesh and standing infront of him, was wearing a wire.

Was this a case of CYA, or something else?

I dont think many do. It was well known . No one thought Trump was a saint. It was well known that he cheated on his first 2 wives. So is anyone really surprised he cheated on his 3rd?

But id also ask do you have any proof he cheated on Melania? See buying off people happens all the time in court. Its cheaper to pay them then pay for legal fees. A defamation suit could easily cost half a million if you hire hi end lawyers.

Well it’s been three months for this particular incident and still not a peep. And this is what the 140th day of the Mueller investigation and not a single indictment having to do with a single American colluding with Russia...nothing but crickets. There is simply nothing there. You guys are a joke hahaha

There is lots of real and actual evidence in that case. There is actually zero evidence in this case.

Are you serious????? Numerous people, including an American diplomat, were MURDERED in Benghazi!!!

Are you TRYING to be a horse's ass, or does it just come naturally to you???

Hillary Clinton, the CIA (and others) need to be brought up on Accessory to MURDER charges for what happened in Benghazi. They KNEW what was going down, they could have stopped it...BUT THEY DIDN'T! INTENTIONALLY! I don't think I've ever seen a better example of wanton reckless behavior like Benghazi.

I strongly suggest you read the book "13 Hours" by Mitchell Zuckhoff.

Your colossal ignorance is blinding!

ETA - But you won't read the book, because it makes your queen look like the wicked witch she truly is. It should make you ASHAMED to make statements like that. Zuckoff was there! When it happened!

Yes, but then that is why he hires attorneys like Cohen, to clean up the mess that is left behind.

But there is something else, and it should be noted: There is a question as to if Trump himself tapes conversations or not. We all saw that during the entire Comey time, with the tweets, and it is known that the man does have a phone system to allow him to listen in on employee phone calls. So does Trump also record conversations as well?
