Mr Giuliani, the former NY mayor who now leads the president's personal legal team, said thatMichael Cohen should release the estimated dozen tapes he had made in which he discusses paying women to cover up alleged affairs with Mr Trump.
It comes on the heels of a report by CNN Thursday evening that Cohen has said he is willing to testify that then-candidate Trump knew in advance about the 2016 meeting in Trump Tower.

However, it was Trump's legal team that actually waived protections that would have allowed the recordings to remain hidden from prosecutors, a source familiar with the matter told CNBC last week.
