CNN on Tuesday obtained the audio recording of a conversation Michael Cohen had secretly with his longtime client Donald Trump, in which the two could be heard discussing making a payment to a Playboy model who allegedly had an extramarital affair with Trump about a decade ago.
The conversation: Trump could be heard asking Cohen, "What financing?," CNN reports.
- Cohen: "We'll have to pay."
- Trump: "Pay with cash." The audio is muddled and it's unclear whether he suggested his attorney should pay with cash or not pay, CNN notes.
- Cohen: "No, no." It's unclear what was said next.
