In a foreword to his upcoming tell-all about President Donald Trump, called 'Disloyal,' POTUS' formerly disgraced lawyer Michael Cohen confirms that his ex-boss witnessed "golden showers in a sex club in Vegas." While he does not elaborate on the "golden showers" as such, it does remind one of the infamously reported 'pee tape' associated with Trump.

Is Cohen talking about the 'pee tape'?

The 'pee tape,' in case one has never heard of it, is a 2013 video which reportedly shows then-business mogul Trump watching two prostitutes urinate on the bed then-President Barack Obama had alleged slept on at a Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Moscow. At the time, Trump was visiting Moscow to attend the Miss Universe pageant.

So the incident in question that Cohen talks about in his book and as mentioned in his foreword is not the same as the 2013 one because firstly, the one he talks about took place in Las Vegas and secondly, Cohen specifically mentions "golden showers," which the incident at Moscow was technically not. A golden shower is when people pee on each other for sexual pleasure. However, at the Russian Ritz-Carlton Hotel, Trump reportedly watched women urinate on a bed, apparently to spite his predecessor. He was not seen peeing or getting peed on himself. What was allegedly seen in the tape, was more of a form of urolagnia, which constitutes sexual delight in watching the sight or thought of urine and/or urination.

How did the world learn about the 'pee tape'?

One of the 17 intelligence reports, dated June 20, 2016, compiled by former MI6 operative and Russian specialist Christopher Steele in 2016 detailed Trump’s “(perverted) conduct” at the Ritz-Carlton. The Democratic National Committee and the Hillary Clinton campaign had hired Fusion GPS, a private political research firm based in Washington, D.C., who in turn reached out to Steele to look into Trump’s ties to Russia and that is when contents of the reported "pee tape" came to light. After Buzzfeed News published the contents of the dossier on January 10, 2017, a number of outlets seized on the alleged "pee tape" that may or may not exist and made the news go viral.

According to the dossier, Steele spoke to four sources to find out about the "pee tape" -- “a former top-level Russian intelligence officer still active inside the Kremlin,” a “member of the staff at the hotel,” a “female staffer at the hotel when trump had stayed there,” and “a close associate of Trump who had organized and managed his recent trips to Moscow.” Although these were pretty reliable sources as far as sources go, all of them had only secondhand knowledge about the existence of the tape and none of them had seen it themselves or spoken to the prostitutes allegedly involved.

The incident was allegedly filmed by the FSB, Russia’s main state security agency, which was formerly known as the KGB, as Ritz-Carlton was allegedly under surveillance at the time. The agency had reportedly put up cameras and microphones in many of the rooms at the hotel, including the allegedly soiled presidential suite. That meant that if the Russian government was in possession of the tape, it could easily blackmail the United States or is already doing so. But again, all of this is speculation since no one actually knows if the "pee tape" even exists. 

Trump's denial and request to Comey

Trump has denied anything reported about the tape was remotely true. Former FBI Director James Comey, says the president told him: “I’m a germaphobe. There’s no way I would let people pee on each other around me. No way.” Comey also allegedly heard him say that there was no way that such a tape existed “because he had not stayed overnight in Moscow but had only used the hotel room to change his clothes.” 

However, while promoting his book 'A Higher Loyalty' Comey said that Trump asked him to investigate whether Russian President Vladimir Putin had the tape. “He brought up what he called the ‘golden showers thing’ … adding that it bothered him if there was ‘even a 1 percent chance’ his wife, Melania, thought it was true. He just rolled on, unprompted, explaining why it couldn’t possibly be true, ending by saying he was thinking of asking me to investigate the allegation to prove it was a lie. I said it was up to him," Comey wrote in his book.
