The "Trump Tapes" Just Came Out, They're Being Called Nixon 2.0
Stormy Daniel's attorney, Michael Avenatti, has just informed the world that the "Trump Tapes" the public has been in a frenzy about for quite some time now, have just been disclosed in court.
Without providing any hints, Avenatti is referring to the tapes as "Nixon 2.0."
Former President Richard Nixon's ultimate downfall was when it was revealed that he secretly recorded all his conversations in the White House which proved that he masterminded the crimes behind Watergate. That led to his resignation from office.
"The #TrumpTapes that were just disclosed in court as a result of our efforts should be released immediately. Not tmrw, not next week or next month. Now. Nixon 2.0."
Avenatti is calling for them to be made public.
We don't yet know the full scope of the recordings, but what we do know is that Avenatti has accused President Trump's longtime personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, of selectively releasing snippets of some conversations with Stormy Daniels while refusing to show his conversations with President Trump.
Based on the Nixon 2.0 comment, we can safely assume that the tapes in question in court undoubtedly have Trump on a recording with Cohen and not only that but they tie him to some sort of crime. If they didn't, Avenatti is taking us all for a ride. So far, he's been pretty good at calling Trump and Cohen out as being liars, and not the other way around.
One thing we do know is that federal prosecutors have received a ton of evidence. More than 1 million files from three of Cohen's cell phones that were seized by the FBI last month were collected.
U.S. District Judge Kimba Wood in Manhattan is presiding over the matter.
