Today, with surveillance cameras everywhere, it’s good to remember that everything you say may be recorded. Even by someone you trust. And those recordings turn up.
“Cohen Recorded Talk With Trump,” The Wall Street Journal, July 21, 2018 A1. Trump’s then-personal lawyer recorded a conversation with then-private-citizen Trump about a story about a Playboy model.
Several different layers of onion involving this tape its creation, its collection by the FBI under a warrant, its production after a court-ordered review, its release to the press, and its impact. And who owns it, at each stage of the process? Did Trump know he was being taped? Was this privileged? Was the privilege waived? How and by whom?
I just ask the questions.
