President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, was caught on tape talking about business arrangements when he accidentally dialled an NBC News reporter in the middle of the night.
On the recording, Giuliani can he heard saying:
Let’s get back to business.
I gotta get you to get on Bahrain.
He's then overheard telling someone else in the room that they 'need to call Robert', before then adding:
The problem is, we need some money. We need a few hundred thousand.
The reporter, NBC News’ Rich Schapiro, was asleep and discovered the message the following morning.
However, it’s unclear what business Giuliani was referring to or what capacity he was discussing the arrangements within, considering he has considerable business dealings outside his working relationship with the president.
Social media users were pretty perplexed by the whole thing.
Rudy Guiliani's butt dial voicemails seem like a made-up SNL skit, but they are amazingly real. #ButtHisVoicemails https://t.co/Vmh3inn2fv
