The FBI reportedly seized more than 100 Cohen recordings pertaining to Trump

Former Playboy model Karen Mc Dougal says she had a months-long affair with Donald Trump after they met in 2006

Facing an FBI investigation after years of acting as a "fixer" for Trump, Cohen, also a key figure in the Russian Federation investigation, increasingly appears to have flipped on his former boss in what's quickly become the greatest legal threat to his presidency.

During the campaign, the Trump team denied any knowledge of the deal between McDougal and American Media, the magazine's parent company. (AMI), which owns the National Enquirer.

A combination photo shows U.S. President Donald Trump's onetime personal attorney, Michael Cohen and U.S. President Donald Trump from outside federal court in the Manhattan borough of New York City, New York, U.S., April 16, 2018 and in the White House in Washington, U.S., July 18, 2018. "The other objective here was to keep the story from being put in the press by lying to her and telling her, "We'll pay you $150,000, you don't talk to anybody else and we'll publish your story" - when they never meant to publish it".

The lawyer then told Stephanopoulos that Cohen is not seeking a pardon from Trump - ending the interview by revealing his client has "more tapes" of the president.

Cohen says he's already spoken with the Trump Organization's finance chief, Allen Weisselberg, on "how to set the whole thing up".

Weisselberg's involvement raises questions about whether Trump's private business tried to protect his campaign.

The payment was never made and Mr Giuliani said he didn't know why that was the case and hadn't discussed it with Mr Trump.

It is a potential problem for Mr Trump because undisclosed payments to bury embarrassing stories about a political candidate can be treated as a violation of United States campaign finance laws.

Trump is legally bound to disclose campaign donations and expenditures, and the payments, which Trump denies happening, allegedly made to McDougal and Daniels went unreported by both Cohen and Trump.

Avenatti, himself, has become a media sensation himself, as he has stood up against President Trump from just about all angles possible, and has even considered running against Trump in 2020.

In the conversation with Mr. Cuomo, Mr. Cohen discusses the $130,000 paid to Ms. Daniels, the porn actress whose real name is Stephanie Clifford and who claimed to have had an affair a decade ago with the future president. When Cohen tells Trump, "We'll have to pay". Mr Trump is heard saying "pay with cash" but it is not clear if he is suggesting to do so or not do so.

Mr Trump says later: "So, what do we got to pay for this?"

Cuomo aired a recording Tuesday night that Cohen secretly taped of a September 2016 conversation he had with Trump in which they discussed buying another woman's story of an alleged affair.

Mr Giuliani said the president says "don't pay with cash". Why was the tape so abruptly terminated (cut) while I was presumably saying positive things?

When the Federal Bureau of Investigation raided Cohen's office in April, it seized 4 million other documents, many of which have proven to be outside attorney-client privilege.

But Lanny Davis, Cohen's lawyer, told Cuomo that "Richard Nixon couldn't spin the tape that did him in".

Cohen's attorney, Lanny Davis, released the recording to CNN on Tuesday night in what is seen as an open hostility between the US president and Cohen.
