“[Mr. Trump] turned out to have a close friend betray him. That happens in life,” he told “New Day” host Alisyn Camerota.
“What the heck are you picking on me for, saying he was an honest, honorable man, when I didn’t know he tape-recorded conversations with his clients?” Mr. Giuliani said, “George Washington didn’t know that Benedict Arnold was a traitor.”
On July 24, CNN released audio from a tape provided by Mr. Cohen’s counsel of his discussing payment for the rights to Playboy model Karen McDougal’s affair story with the president.
He said that his legal team knows that there are 183 tapes, a handful of which have “interruptions” from the president, and only one has a conversation with him. The rest of the recordings are mostly of reporters and some businessmen, and none of the people on the tapes knew they were being recorded, Mr. Giuliani alleged.
