Stormy Daniels: Trump discloses payment to reimburse lawyer

While Trump pretended to be unaware of the payment made by Cohen in April, this recent disclosure shared that Trump paid his attorney frequently.

Mr Apol wrote that he considers Mr Trump's payment to Michael Cohen to be a repayment on a loan and that it was required to be included in Mr Trump's June 2017 disclosure.

The revelation comes in Trump's personal financial disclosure report, which he filed Tuesday with the Office of Government Ethics, and which the OGE officially certified and released to the public Wednesday afternoon.

Prosecutors are investigating Cohen for possible bank and tax fraud, possible campaign law violations linked to a hush-money payment to porn star Stormy Daniels, and perhaps other matters related to Trump's presidential campaign, a person familiar with the probe has said.

Trump's income from the Trump International Hotel in Washington, which has come under scrutiny for being a top choice for foreign dignitaries, almost doubled, from about $20 million in the 2016 report to just over $40 million a year ago. The leaker said they knew the risks, and "To say that I am terrified right now would be an understatement".

Michael Cohen's attorney, Steve Ryan, won't discuss the $500,000 Michael Avenatti says Cohen received from Russian oligarch Viktor Vekselberg in 2017.

Rudy Giuliani, Mr. Trump's newest personal attorney, revealed the reimbursement earlier this month.

"In the interest of transparency, while not required to be disclosed as "reportable liabilities" on part 8, in 2016 expenses were incurred by one of Donald J. Trump's attorneys, Michael Cohen", according to page 45 of the disclosure report.

Mr Trump previously denied knowing of the $130,000 payment to Stormy Daniels.

Farrow concludes his New Yorker piece by noting, "The official who released the suspicious-activity reports was aware of the risks, but said fears that the missing reports might be suppressed compelled the disclosure". The first missing report covered almost seven months and listed a little over $1 million in activity. His Doral club, as was the case a year ago, dwarfed the rest of his golf properties, with revenues of nearly $75 million.

In his financial discloser form, Trump has listed assets of at least Dollars 1.4 billion and income of more than USD 452 million.

Some of the 12-month figures for his properties are down from his previous report, but that earlier report covered about 16 months and so it is not directly comparable. One of his biggest lenders is Ladder Capital, which has lent more than $100 million. The documents reportedly outlined transactions that totaled more than $3 million. The president's tax returns would give a clear picture, but Mr Trump has broken with tradition by refusing to make them public.

When Trump took office, he refused to fully divest from his global business, another break with presidential tradition. But the president retains ownership of those businesses, through a trust, and can take money out of them at any time.

His report shows that Trump received $64,840 from the Screen Actors Guild pension fund. Trump has appeared in several movies, including "Home Alone 2" and "Zoolander". The president owes Deutsch Bank as much as $175 million.
