Trump Form Lists Payment To Cohen, Lawyer Who Paid Stormy Daniel

Michael Cohen

The USD130,000 payment in 2016 to Stephanie Clifford, better known as adult performer Stormy Daniels, was made by Trump lawyer Michael Cohen, who seems to have only been reimbursed previous year, according to the president's 2017 financial disclosure form released Wednesday.

It will soon be revealed that Stormy Daniels was not alone in alleging an affair with President Donald Trump and signing a non-disclosure agreement with Michael Cohen to cover it up, the adult film star's lawyer said Thursday.

Cohen has said that days before the November 2016 presidential elections, he had paid Dollars 130,000 to Daniels for her not to go public about her intimate relationship with Trump.

Also, Rudy Giuliani, recently named Trump's personal attorney, has said Trump reimbursed Cohen for the original $130,000 payment, which was made shortly before Trump's victory in the November 8, 2016 presidential election.

Trump reported on his 2018 financial-disclosure report, released Wednesday, that he had reimbursed Cohen for the $130,000 payment to Daniels.

The Stormy Daniels payment is a potential legal problem for the president because it could be seen as an illegal campaign contribution. He said he had not been reimbursed by Trump's company or Trump's campaign. "You'll have to ask Michael Cohen". Trump and Giuliani have clashed over what the president knew and when he knew it. But Giuliani said in early May that the president had indeed repaid Cohen. Trump has previously denied knowing about that payment or reimbursing Cohen.

And David Apol, director of the Office of Government Ethics, referred the matter to the Justice Department.

That letter was written in response to a complaint from a watchdog organization, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, which said that Trump should have reported the payments to Cohen in last year's disclosures. Reporter: Then why did Michael Cohen make those if there was no truth to her allegations? Giuliani also took issue with whether the reimbursement, which he said had been paid through a 12-installment retainer to Cohen, "even had to be disclosed" at all.

Cohen claimed he had worked with Russian-born developer named Felix Sater who has worked on a multitude of projects for the Trump Organization - including hotels in Florida and NY. According to ethics document, Trump's income was $25 million in 2017 and more than $15 million from the golf club.

However, the contract could not immediately be terminated and Novartis had to wait until the full $1.2 million had been paid to Cohen's company.

The newly-released financial documents also offered a glimpse of the performance of two of Trump's flagship hotels: the Trump International Hotel in Washington - which has attracted crowds of lobbyists, lawmakers and foreign governments with business before the federal government, and Trump's Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida, dubbed the "Winter White House".

Well, it looks like President Donald Trump's personal attorney Michael Cohen may not have been entirely forthcoming about the duration he worked on a deal for Trump Tower in Moscow, Russia.
