CNN President Jeff Zucker – Conservative Fox News host Tucker Carlson first broadcast one of several tapes discovered by the media on Tuesday. The audio has never been released to anyone till now.
The tapes revealed audio from a march 10, 2016 conversation between CNN`s CEO Jeff Zucker and Michael Cohen, in which he explains himself to the convicted lawyer why he needs to be friends with Donald Trump in-camera to avoid public backlash
The audiotapes released by Tucker Carlson on Fox News has done more damage to the left-leaning CNN interview with the disgraced former attorney to the President of the United States of America which aired on Tuesday.
Cohen was one of the fall guys in the sham “Russiagate Investigation” and was sentenced on December 12, 2018, to serve three years in the United States federal prison. He was also ordered to pay a $50,000 fine after pleading guilty to tax evasion and campaign finance violation in 2016 for the Trump campaign. His conviction had absolutely nothing to do with the president. Michael was released from a New York jail on May 20 due to the spread of the Chinese coronavirus.
One of the excerpt from the audio played on Tucker Calrson tonight, and first reported by Fox News, CNN president Jeff Zucker, blows his own trumpet to Cohen about his organization saying, “you cannot be elected president of the United States without CNN.”
“And, you know, as fond as I am of the boss, he also has a tendency, like, you know, if I call him or I email him, he then is capable of going out at his next rally and saying that we just talked and I can’t have that, if you know what I’m saying, Zucker told Cohen.”CNN President Jeff Zucker
“You guys have had great instincts, great guts and great understanding of everything,” said Zucker. “But you’re missing the boat on how it works going forward.”
“I’m very conscious of not putting too much in email, as you’re a lawyer, as you understand,” said Zucker to Cohen. “And, you know, as fond as I am of the boss, he also has a tendency, like, you know, if I call him or I email him, he then is capable of going out at his next rally and saying that we just talked and I can’t have that, if you know what I’m saying.”
“It’s not that I don’t want to talk to [Trump] every day. I’ve just got to be careful, because, I’ve just got to be careful … I just don’t want him talking about it on the campaign trail … But you know what? I’m going to give him a call right now and I’m going wish him luck in the debate tonight,” Zucker added.
