The FBI raids Trump’s private lawyer, whose Trump records by law are supposed to be confidential and protected (“privileged”). The Justice department claims that the info seized will be carefully guarded, but now we have this tape being played on CNN and no doubt more to come? This makes a complete mockery of the legal system.
Seriously what is going on in this country?

“I need to open up a company for the transfer of all of that info regarding our friend David,” Cohen told Trump in the recording, possibly referencing Trump ally and American Media head David Pecker.
Trump can be heard asking Cohen “what financing?” and also “pay with cash,” although it was unclear whether that was a question or a statement to Cohen. The tape cuts off before a final decision is made.
Also included in the tape is Trump asking an aide to “get me a Coke, please.”
