Prosecutors in New York have informed attorneys for Donald Trump that the evidence in their hush money case against the former president includes an audio recording of him and a witness, a court filing made public Friday shows.
Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s office made the disclosure in a filing this week called an automatic discovery form and said the evidence had already been disclosed to Trump’s attorneys.
The filing does not identify the witness or say when the recording was made or when Trump’s lawyers were made aware of it. NBC News has reached out to attorneys and a spokesperson for Trump for a response.
A key witness in the case, former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen, previously released a secretly taped audio recording of a discussion he had with Trump about the hush money payments in 2016. It’s unclear if the recording referred to in the court filing is the same one.
