Trump discloses Dollars 250000 reimbursement to Cohen

Emails and messages between Trump personal attorney Michael Cohen and businessman Felix Sater contradict Cohen's earlier statements on how long he worked on the Trump Tower Moscow project.

At the same time, 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.

"I enjoy my law practice and look forward to prevailing on behalf of my client Stormy Daniels", he added, using the stage name of the actress, Stephanie Clifford. He denied the affair and initially denied knowledge of the payment, which Mr Cohen has acknowledged was meant to stop her from going public with the allegation.

Michael Avenatti, an attorney representing Daniels, on Tuesday questioned why Trump was acknowledging the payment - and his reimbursement of Cohen - now.

The Office of Government Ethics found on Wednesday that Mr Trump ought to have revealed the payment in his previous financial disclosure.

"In 2016 expenses were incurred by one of Donald J. Trump's attorneys, Michael Cohen", Trump reported in a footnote to his official Personal Financial Disclosure report, required of top federal officials.

Swiss drugmaker Novartis AG said it had paid Mr Cohen almost $1.2m; USA telecommunications company AT&T Inc said it made payments of $600,000; and South Korea's Korea Aerospace Industries Ltd said it hired him for $150,000. He watched news reports about the development of his case from a hotel room in Philadelphia last weekend and has told friends "I just can't take this anymore".

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

Cohen spoke to him again at Trump Tower when the two men were outside the meeting between Foreign Minister Mohammed al-Thani and Flynn.

Avenatti is seeking to represent Daniels in a dispute in federal court in NY over material seized by the FBI in the Cohen raids. The leader of that office, Senior Executive Vice President Bob Quinn, is retiring, Stephenson said.

UTA's Jay Sures is the one having conversations about lawyer Michael Avenatti and Anthony Scaramucci, with CNN and MSNBC, New York Times reported first.

"They're not fully vetted, but there are at least two I think are on solid ground", Avenatti said. Apol's letter was released with the Trump disclosures.

The report also showed Trump earned between $230,000 and $1.1 million in capital gains income on stock in iPhone maker Apple, Caterpillar, Microsoft and Pepsico.
