The FBI Has Tapes As Wiretap Catches Trump And Cohen Call (Updated)

UPDATE: NBC News has corrected their story. Cohen’s calls were NOT being listened to.

At least one phone call between the White House read Trump, and Michael Cohen was caught in the FBI’s wiretap of Trump’s lawyer.

NBC News reported:

Federal investigators have wiretapped the phone lines of Michael Cohen, the longtime personal lawyer for President Donald Trump who is under investigation for a payment he made to an adult film star who alleged she had an affair with Trump, according to two people with knowledge of the legal proceedings involving Cohen.

It is not clear how long the wiretap has been authorized, but NBC News has learned it was in place in the weeks leading up to the raids on Cohen’s offices, hotel room, and home in early April, according to one person with direct knowledge.

At least one phone call between a phone line associated with Cohen and the White House was intercepted, the person said.

Now, who in the White House besides Trump, who maintained regular contact with Cohen, would be talking to the president’s fixer?

On April 16, I wrote about the first report that there were Trump and Cohen conversations picked up in the FBI wiretap of Cohen. At least one conversation now appears to be confirmed.

If there are weeks worth of recorded conversations, it is highly unlikely that just one of them involved Trump and Cohen. The President Of The United States has been snapped in an FBI wiretap. Forget everything else about this investigation, and let that sink in. Take a moment and picture how Trump supporters would react if Barack Obama was caught talking to the focus of an FBI criminal investigation on a wiretap.

There is no way to overstate how bad this is for Donald Trump, and in the days and weeks to come as Cohen is charged with crimes the situation is only going to get much, much worse.
