NBC, ABC Correct Stories about Wiretapping Michael Cohen’s Phone

Last week, NBC News and ABC News reported [1] that federal law enforcement was wiretapping and listening into phone calls made to and from Trump lawyer Michael Cohen.

But both media networks had to retract their initial reporting because there was no wiretapping of Cohen’s phone lines. Instead, the federal authorities obtained a register of calls going to and coming from Cohen and not the content of those phone calls.
