Trump Financial Disclosures Show Cohen Hush Money Payment

Trump Financial Disclosures Show Cohen Hush Money Payment

A payment from President Donald Trump to his attorney Michael Cohen - believed to have gone to adult film star Stormy Daniels - should have been disclosed previous year, the Office of Government Ethics said Wednesday.

Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani revealed earlier this month that Trump repaid Cohen for a $130,000 hush money payment to porn star Stormy Daniels. OGE has determined that the information provided in that note meets the disclosure requirements for a reportable liability under the Ethics in Government Act.

Apol told Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein that he was providing both Trump's 2017 and 2018 disclosures, as potentially "relevant to any inquiry" the Justice Department may be pursuing into the president's filings from a year ago.

Swiss drug company Novartis and AT&T have both acknowledged they paid Cohen for advice on how to approach the Trump administration on particular issues.

The ethics disclosure draws a clearer connection between Trump and Cohen and further underlines inconsistencies in descriptions provided by Trump and aides about the payments.

Cohen has acknowledged paying Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford.

How Trump dealt with the Daniels hush money in his disclosure has been closely watched, particularly after Giuliani gave interviews earlier this month saying the president had reimbursed Cohen in a series of payments after the campaign was over.

Trump had previously disputed whether he was aware of the payment by Cohen and whether he reimbursed his attorney.

Cohen works as a personal lawyer for president Donald Trump. The missing reports supposedly revealed that Cohen received more than $3million in an account linked to a shell company he created before the presidential election

Al-Rumaihi told Cohen that Qatar expected to invest in Trump plans to solicit investment in a US infrastructure program, the Post reported. That disclosure was signed under penalty of perjury attesting that all information it contained was true to the best of Trump's knowledge.

Mueller is investigating possible collusion between Trump's 2016 presidential campaign and Russian Federation, something that Trump has repeatedly denied.

The White House did not respond to requests for comment to clarify the reason for Mr Trump's payment to Mr Cohen.

Walter Shaub, who used to head the Office of Government Ethics before Apol, was struck by that: "This is tantamount to a criminal referral".

OGE's acting director, David Apol, sent a letter to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein along with the financial disclosure, notifying the Justice Department of the Cohen payment. Rumaihi said when he asked Cohen for specifics on more important projects that Qatar could invest in, Cohen allegedly replied that he would first need $1 million in order to consult as part of his fee.

Summary: President Donald Trump declared a debt to Michael Cohen on his recently submitted financial disclosure form.

In a footnote in tiny type on Page 45 of his 92-page disclosure, Trump said he reimbursed Cohen for "expenses" ranging from $100,001 to $250,000. Daniels says she had an affair with the president.

DailyMail.com said that the group also included Qatar's foreign minister Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al Thani.
