Trump-Cohen Tape - (Try this at home)

An audio recording has been released by CNN of a discussion between Donald Trump and his personal attorney Michael Cohen that took place in 2016 some months before the presidential election

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EBB9TcOGqTg

The recording which was taped in secret by his attorney includes a discussion between Trump and Cohen about arranging the purchase and concealment of a story about an extra-marital affair between Donald Trump and former Playboy Playmate Karen Mcdougal through the auspices of America Media Inc. and David Pecker, proprietor of the National Enquirer newspaper in USA.

A dispute has now arisen as to exactly what was said by Donald Trump just after the point where Trump asks Cohen “What financing?”

Critics say that Donald Trump then tells Cohen to pay cash. Rudy Giuliani who is acting as Trump’s legal spokesman disputes this.

Readers may be able to clarify matters to their own satisfaction in the following way:
i. Load up the YouTube URL cited above.
ii. Run it forward to around 3.20 elapsed and then pause it.
iii. Click the small gear-wheel icon in the bottom-right edge of the window and select ’Speed’
iv Drop the speed to 0.5 and hit Play.
v If still uncertain, repeat and drop playback speed to 0.25.

What Trump actually says at 3.27 elapsed is “So, pay cash”.
