Trump repaid attorney who paid off Stormy Daniels: ethics disclosure

President Donald Trump revealed in his financial disclosure Wednesday that he reimbursed personal attorney Michael Cohen as much as $250,000 for unspecified "expenses", with no mention of a $130,000 payment to porn actress Stormy Daniels to keep quiet about a sexual tryst she said they had.

Last year, Trump did not disclose any debts to Cohen, who executed a payment of $130,000 to Clifford less than two weeks before the 2016 presidential election.

In an interview with NPR, Shaub said Trump's lawyers never asked OGE a year ago whether the payments to Cohen should be disclosed.

"Within approximately 75 days of the payment to Ms. Clifford, Mr. Viktor Vekselberg, a Russian oligarch with close ties to Russian President Vladimir Putin, caused substantial funds to be deposited into the bank account from which Mr. Cohen made the payment".

This year's report shows Trump paid Mr Cohen more than $100,000 for expenses incurred in 2016, although it does not specify the goal of the reimbursement.

In a memo to employees, AT&T CEO Randall Stephenson had said the company made a "big mistake" in hiring Cohen as a consultant.

Pressed by the show's hosts about whether the women allege they had agreements with Trump and Cohen and if they claim to have had affairs or sex with the president, Avenatti responded in the affirmative on both counts.

"I don't think I ever changed that", Giuliani told Ingraham, before revealing that a day shy of his one month anniversary on Trump's legal team, he still doesn't have his facts straight.

Giuliani, said Wednesday that the Cohen case is of no concern.

"Novartis believed that Michael Cohen could advise the company as to how the Trump administration might approach certain United States healthcare policy matters, including the Affordable Care Act", Novartis said.

The letter by the office to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein said that Trump's financial disclosure reports were being provided "because you may find the disclosure relevant to any inquiry you may be pursuing regarding the president's prior report", which was filed in June 2017.

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

Mr Cohen, whose records relating to the settlement were seized in an FBI raid last month, is now reportedly under criminal investigation. 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.

The disclosure shows millions in 2017 income from rents, licences, book and television royalties, company shares, hotel management fees and golf courses, with interests from India to Dubai.

The mandatory filing says that "in 2016 expenses were incurred by one of Donald J. Trump's attorneys, Michael Cohen".
