Trump Paid More Than $100000 To Cohen, Financial Disclosure Confirms

Trump Paid More Than $100000 To Cohen, Financial Disclosure Confirms”

President Donald Trump acknowledged for the first time that he repaid his lawyer Michael Cohen more than $100,000 for expenses Cohen incurred during the 2016 presidential election, according to a financial disclosure form released Wednesday. The money was meant to keep her from discussing an alleged extramarital affair with Trump prior to the 2016 election. Among his holdings, he took in $25 million from his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida.

Trump submitted the form on Tuesday, the deadline for administration employees to file their financial documents.

"In the interest of transparency, while not required to be disclosed as "reportable liabilities".in 2016 expenses were incurred by one of Donald J. Trump's attorneys, Michael Cohen", a note at the bottom of Page 45 of the 92-page report states.

Rudy Giuliani, who recently began providing legal representation for Trump, said in a Fox News interview earlier this month that Trump reimbursed Cohen. Under ethics rules, officials report the value of their assets and the amount of their income in broad ranges. It says Trump "fully reimbursed Mr. Cohen in 2017".

Apol's agency released Trump's 2018 disclosure on Wednesday.

Trump's disclosure includes all of 2017 and part of 2018.

Cohen has admitted to having paid $130,000 to the adult film actress, Stephanie Clifford ― also known as Stormy Daniels ― after she went public about an affair that she claims to have had with Trump.

Ethics experts say that if that money isn't disclosed, Trump could be in violation of ethics laws for failing to disclose a reportable item, a violation for which others have been prosecuted.
