Pen-registered Trump Lawyer’s Phones Reveal Vital Information!
It has been revealed that federal investigators have been monitoring Michael Cohen’s phone lines. Cohen, who has been Trump’s personal loyal for a long time now, is under investigation for a payment he made to an adult film star who claimed that she had an affair with Trump, according to multiple senior officials and individuals who have knowledge of the proceedings that involved Cohen.
It isn’t clear since when the phone call monitoring has been authorized, but it has been revealed it was in place in the weeks leading up to the raids on Cohen’s offices, home, and even hotel room in early April, according to one person with direct knowledge.
The calls are logged by what is known as a pen register, and it records the number of the phone that dialed and the phone number that received the call, however it does not record the contents of the conversation.
It isn’t clear since when the phone call monitoring has been authorized, but it has been revealed it was in place in the weeks leading up to the raids on Cohen’s offices, home, and even hotel room in early April, according to one person with direct knowledge. Three senior U.S. officials have now disputed that, and they say the monitoring of the calls was limited to a log of calls.
What the logs revealed
At least one phone call between a number that is associated with Cohen and a number of the White House was logged. Before, federal prosecutors in New York claimed in court filings they conducted covert searches on many e-mail accounts that were maintained by Cohen.
Spokespeople for the U.S. Attorney’s Office and the FBI in New York have declined comment on this. After the raid, the President was advised not to speak by members of his legal team, according to a person with knowledge of the discussion.
It has been revealed that Rudolph Giuliani, another member of Trump’s legal team, learned that days after the raid, President Trump made a call to Cohen, and told Trump to never call again, fearing the call was being recorded by prosecutors.
Giuliani told Fox News Wednesday night that Trump repaid Cohen the $130,000 that the lawyer used to keep the adult film star, who was known as Stormy Daniels, from telling the public about her allegations regarding the affair with Trump. Giuliani also warned the president that Cohen was likely to betray him, something Trump vehemently denied, saying he has known Cohen for years and expects him to be loyal.
Who else has something to say?
Giuliani along with Steve Ryan, a lawyer for Cohen, did not give any immediate responses when asked for comments. The White House referred news outlets to outside counsel for more details. It is unknown what kind of information that Cohen could possibly provide prosecutors on Trump if he chose to rat out on the president. He represented Trump and the Trump Organization in its business dealings for almost 20 years before Trump rose to the presidency. Special Counsel Robert Mueller is known to be interested in any information that federal investigators may get that would be relevant to his investigation into the possible collusion between Russia and Trump during his campaign.
Cohen publicly said before that he would invoke his Fifth Amendment rights if subpoenaed to avoid incriminating himself before a grand jury. It is also revealed that there is no indication from public filings that Cohen is cooperating in the probe.
The investigation on Cohen is being led by the U.S. Attorney’s Office located in Manhattan together with the FBI. Investigators are looking into the transaction between Cohen and Daniels, whose birth name is Stephanie Clifford, as well as a payment of $150,000 from American Media Inc.to a second woman who says she had an affair with Trump, Playboy model Karen McDougal.
The White House, however, has vehemently denied any and all allegations. The investigators are also looking for information about 2005’s Access Hollywood tape in which Donald Trump was heard making vulgar comments regarding women. The Access Hollywood tape was where Trump could be heard bragging to Access Hollywood’s host Billy Bush that he would grab women by their genitals.
