When Giuliani mentions the cash-check controversy he’s referring to the disputed transcript of a secretly recorded dialog between Michael Cohen and Trump. The controversy boils down as to if or not Trump stated Cohen ought to make a cost in money.

Notice that Giuliani additionally asks why Cohen and his lawyer Lanny Davis are leaking privileged and confidential data.

Over the previous couple of days, there have been some questions raised about why Giuliani hadn’t been difficult the discharge of this recording between Trump and his then-lawyer Cohen on grounds that it’s lined by attorney-client privilege.

It’s one factor for Giuliani to say that, however to truly problem that, as Regulation&Crime reported, he’d be exposing himself to some danger.

Why was the tape so abruptly terminated (lower) whereas I used to be presumably saying constructive issues?” Trump requested. “I hear there are different shoppers and lots of reporters which are taped – can this be so? Too dangerous!”

Giuliani has stated the the recording reveals Trump did nothing fallacious.

“Nothing in that dialog means that [Trump] had any data of it upfront,” Giuliani has stated. “Within the large scheme of issues, it’s highly effective exculpatory proof.”
