The New York Times reports that Trump's long-time lawyer, Michael Cohen, secretly recorded a phone-call in which Trump and Cohen discuss a September 2016 payment, in the amount of $150,000, by American Media, Inc. (the owner of the National Enquirer) to Playboy model Karen McDougal in order to acquire the exclusive rights to her story of her 2006 affair with Trump. The National Enquirer never planned on publishing McDougal's story, so the payment (termed a "catch-and-kill" payment) effectively silenced McDougal's story for the duration of the 2016 presidential campaign. The Times also reported that the tape contains a discussion of a back-payment from Trump to American Media, Inc.; the reporting directly contradicted Trump's long-standing claim that he had no knowledge of the payment to either McDougal or American Media, Inc.
