Back in 2016, months before the Presidential election, attorney Michael Cohen secretly recorded a conversation with his client, Donald Trump, discussing the payment to a former Playboy model, Karen McDougal, who alleged she had an affair with Trump.
These recordings bring up a myriad of legal issues when it comes to attorneys and their clients, but it also breaches the question—could the content collected from these recordings be a violation of federal campaign finance law? On Lawyer 2 Lawyer, hosts Bob Ambrogi and Craig Williams join attorney and professor Rebecca Roiphe from New York Law School and attorney and professor Bennett Gershman from Pace Law to discuss the Michael Cohen tapes, legal ethics, attorney-client privilege, campaign finance law, the impact of these tapes, and what lies ahead for attorney Cohen and the President.
