Meyers: Despite Trump’s Obsession with Being Recorded His Own Lawyer Was Still Able To Record Him

‘Now, you might feel bad for Donald Trump that his lawyer secretly taped him, but that’s when you get when you hire a terrible lawyer’

RUSH EXCERPT:

MEYERS: "So Trump has spent his entire presidency obsessed with being secretly recorded, and it turns out the only one who secretly recorded him was his own lawyer. Everyone from his past is coming back to haunt him. If he ever goes on trial, it’s going to look like the “Seinfeld” finale, but instead of the soup Nazi, they’ll be actual Nazis. So now there’s a secret recording that directly implicates trump in a scheme to pay hush money to silence a “Playboy” model, and possibly even implicates him in campaign finance violations and bank fraud, and it was made by his own lawyer. Now, you might feel bad for Donald Trump that his lawyer secretly taped him, but that’s when you get when you hire a terrible lawyer. Remember, this is all hush, hush Michael. Oh, I remember because when you said it was hush, hush, I taped it, and then played it back to make sure I heard you right, and then I put that tape in a box and said hey, FBI, these tapes are none of your beeswax. But this explains why trump is so scared of being secretly recorded, whenever there is a transcript or recording of a secret meeting, or phone call he or his team had, we find out they did something incriminating. It also explains why the people closest to trump have repeatedly tried to set up secret back channels to Russia, or why he wanted to meet privately with Putin without aides, or why he wouldn’t even tell his own intelligence heads about his plan to invite Putin to the White House."
