The anti-Trump media was driven into a frenzy.
Every attempt the fake Democrats and the fake news media has made to drive President Trump from office has failed in spectacular fashion.
But now a secret audio tape of the President is the bombshell that could trigger impeachment.
Trump’s legal team revealed the existence of a recorded conversation between Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen and the President from the fall of 2016.
The audio discussed Cohen paying former Playboy playmate Karen McDougal who alleged she carried on a year-long affair with Trump back in 2006 when he was just a businessman and reality TV star.
Before the 2016 election, the National Inquirer paid McDougal $150,000 for her story and the anti-Trump media is claiming that the magazine colluded with the Trump campaign to buy McDougal’s silence.
Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani – who reviewed a transcript of the recording after it was seized by the FBI in an April raid – confirmed its existence to the New York Times and informed the paper that the recording proves Trump’s innocence.
The New York Times reports:
Rudolph W. Giuliani, Mr. Trump’s personal lawyer, confirmed in a telephone conversation on Friday that Mr. Trump had discussed payments to Ms. McDougal with Mr. Cohen in person on the recording. He said it was less than two minutes long, said Mr. Trump did not know he was being recorded and claimed that the president had done nothing wrong.
Mr. Giuliani said there was no indication on the tape that Mr. Trump knew before the conversation about the payment from the Enquirer’s parent company, American Media Inc., to Ms. McDougal.
“Nothing in that conversation suggests that he had any knowledge of it in advance,” Mr. Giuliani said. The recording cuts off, according to three people familiar with it, and it is not clear how the discussion ended.
The Wall Street Journal reported that the conversation took place after the National Inquirer had purchased McDougal’s story and that Trump had asked if he should pay by check or another method.
This reporting backs up Giuliani’s statement that the tape is exculpatory evidence because, a) Trump and Cohen discussed a payment after the Inquirer had already purchased McDougal’s story and b) Trump wanted to comply with campaign finance laws by asking if the payment should be made via check so it could be properly documented.
Trump responded to the story by blasting Cohen, tweeting:
“Inconceivable that the government would break into a lawyer’s office (early in the morning) – almost unheard of. Even more inconceivable that a lawyer would tape a client – totally unheard of & perhaps illegal. The good news is that your favorite President did nothing wrong!”
But Democrats and the fake news media are determined to pursue every avenue to impeach Donald Trump.
And should the Democrats win back Congress in the midterm elections, experts predict they will use this tape – no matter what is on it – as exhibit “A” in their crusade to impeach the President.
The left will push the false narrative that Trump evaded campaign finance laws and is guilty of the same crimes that former Democrat Vice Presidential nominee John Edwards was indicted for in 2011.
Even though these allegations are false and ridiculous, journalists and Democrats – who are drunk with madness and hatred for the President – will take advantage of every opportunity to gin up fake news scandals about Donald Trump that will lead to his impeachment.
