Trump's lawyers waived privilege so they could speak freely about the tapes, now that they claim Cohen is separately speaking about them, the person said. Is this a first, never heard of it before? There are, Mr Davis says, "a lot of other tapes". We hear Trump say "pay with cash", we hear Cohen saying "no no no", someone says "check", and the thing suddenly ends.

McDougal has accused Cohen of making a secret deal with the head of the publication, who happens to be friends with Trump. "The good news is that your favorite President did nothing wrong!" The suit says the foundation routinely and willfully broke the law by engaging in self-dealing that ultimately came to include illegal coordination with Trump's political campaign.
According to Giuliani, in his transcript of the recording, Trump says on the tape: "Don't pay with cash". In response to the release of the tape Tuesday night, Giuliani released a statement to ABC News, saying, "The transcript that we provided CNN accurately reflects the taped conversation".
