Trump, Cohen discuss payment on secret tape obtained by CNN

A secretly recorded conversation between Donald Trump and his then-attorney Michael Cohen in which the pair discuss a payment, apparently to buy the rights to the story of a former Playboy model who claimed she had an affair with Trump, was obtained and broadcast by CNN on Tuesday night.

The tape appears to confirm that Trump knew about a plan to buy the rights to Karen McDougal’s story, which American Media Inc. — the owner of the National Enquirer — bought for $150,000 in August 2016 and suppressed.

The recording also confirms a Wall Street Journal report last week that described the conversation, which reportedly took place in September 2016.
