Legal experts told Business Insider last week that they found it freakish that Cohen felt the need to record a conversation with Trump, and some said they had never heard of an attorney secretly recording a client. Democrats, however, say they believe the issue speaks to the president's character (79 percent) as well as national security, but Republicans disagree, seeing it as a deliberate attempt to slow the president's agenda (81 percent) and feeling he is facing more resistance from the political establishment than other presidents have (86 percent).

"We wouldn't consider it in our best interest to share confidential information with them and they would feel the same way".
Anthony Scaramucci said Sunday he accepts President Donald Trump "at his word" that he didn't know beforehand about a meeting between his oldest son and Russians promising dirt on campaign rival Hillary Clinton, and he doesn't understand why the president's former attorney, Michael Cohen, would have leaked something like that.

"Inconceivable that the government would break into a lawyer's office (early in the morning) - nearly unheard of", the president tweeted.
"And he's in grave jeopardy of being disbarred".
