The president’s personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, told ABC News on Saturday that Cohen violated attorney-client privilege by releasing a tape of him discussing with Trump, his client at the time, payments for former Playboy model Karen McDougal’s story alleging an affair with Trump.
“We have complained to them that he’s violated the attorney-client privilege, publicly and privately,” Giuliani said.
But Davis said the president’s team “forfeited all confidentiality” when Giuliani talked publicly last week about the tape.
“Mr. Giuliani seems to be confused,” Davis said. “He expressly waived attorney-client privilege last week and repeatedly and inaccurately – as proven by the tape – talked and talked about the recording, forfeiting all confidentiality.”
