CNN GOT COHENED: TRUMP WASN’T THE ONLY ONE COHEN RECORDED, HE RECORDED SOMEONE AT CNN TOO

Though none of you give a damn about the tape President Donald Trump’s former attorney Michael Cohen recorded of him speaking with the then-GOP presidential nominee in 2016 about paying off some bimbos, ya’ll might like what I’m about to tell you.

First, let me give you some of the backstory. This week Cohen provided the tape to CNN. Then on Tuesday evening CNN talking head Chris Cuomo played the tape in full during that day’s broadcast of “Cuomo Prime Time.”





Full audio: Presidential candidate Trump is heard on tape discussing with his attorney Michael Cohen how they would buy the rights to a Playboy model's story about an alleged affair Trump had with her years earlier, according to the audio recording

Oooooooh, exciting. NOT!

What makes this story interesting is a report confirming that the president wasn’t the only individual to be recorded by Cohen. It turns out that Cuomo himself was once recorded without his knowledge.
Via The Wall Street Journal:
Michael Cohen recorded a conversation he had with a reporter this year in which he said he arranged “on my own” a $130,000 payment in 2016 to a former adult-film star who alleged an affair with Donald Trump, according to people familiar with the matter.
In the nearly two-hour conversation with CNN reporter Chris Cuomo, which the people said appears to have been surreptitiously recorded by Mr. Cohen, the former Trump lawyer discussed at length the payment he arranged in October 2016, a month before the presidential election, to Stephanie Clifford, known professionally as Stormy Daniels.

But it gets even better. During the interview, Cohen assured Cuomo “that he wasn’t running a tape, according to the people familiar with the matter. He told Mr. Cuomo he was placing the phone in his desk drawer and that the conversation was off the record. The phone appeared to record the entire conversation, the people said.”

The irony of this was not lost on the denizens of social media:
Not that this information changes anything on the ground (there’s reportedly nothing damaging/incriminating in the Cuomo tape), but it’s funny nonetheless.Read More HERE
