Porn-star hush money: No respite for Trump

Porn-star hush money: No respite for Trump

It's official: President Donald Trump reimbursed his personal attorney, Michael Cohen, for the $130,000 hush money payment to porn actress Stormy Daniels.

The disclosures, released by the United States government ethics body, do not specify the reason for the payments to Michael Cohen, who paid $130,000 to Stormy Daniels in the run-up to the 2016 election.

Trump confirmed on May 3 that he had reimbursed Cohen the Dollars 130,000 he had given to Daniels days before the 2016 election to buy her silence over an alleged affair with the then presidential candidate.

Financial records detailing payments made to former Trump attorney Michael Cohen were leaked to the media in early May.

Trump's lawyer Michael Cohen, declared earlier this year that it was he and he alone who had arranged the payment for Daniels, and this admission caused Daniels' attorney, Michael Avenatti, to pounce.

A footnote to disclosures submitted Tuesday to the Office of Government Ethics said Cohen had incurred "expenses" on Trump's behalf in 2016 of between $100,001 and $250,000.

"No president has been previously subject to any referral by (Office of Government Ethics) to DOJ as a result of having failed to report an item on their public financial disclosure report", said Virginia Canter, a former ethics official in the Clinton and Obama White Houses who is now with the watchdog group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington. The "law-enforcement official" said they decided to make that document public because it appeared two similar reports were missing from a government database, and they feared they were being hidden from law enforcement.

The ethics disclosure also showed Trump received more than $25 million in income in 2017 from Mar-a-Lago, his private club in Palm Beach, Florida, and more than $15 million in income from his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey.

The ethics disclosure said Cohen sought reimbursement in 2017 for an expense he incurred in 2016. We've recently learned Cohen was subsequently reimbursed by Trump.

WASHINGTON - President Trump lashed out at unauthorized immigrants during a White House meeting Wednesday, warning in front of news cameras that risky people are clamoring to breach the country's borders and branding such people "animals". "These aren't people, these are animals, and we're taking them out of the country at a level and at a rate that's never happened before".

The Trump Organization referred questions about the disclosure report to the president's lawyer Sheri Dillon of Morgan, Lewis & Bockius. Apol wrote to Rosenstein and provided him with those financial disclosure reports, "because you may find the disclosure relevant to any inquiry you may be pursuing regarding the president's prior report". His Doral golf course and resort in Miami took in $75 million.

Mr. Trump listed liabilities of at least $250 million, with Deutsche Bank as his biggest creditor.

Suspicious-activity reports are not proof of criminal wrongdoing, but if the source is correct, last week's reports only covered about a quarter of the $4 million worth of transactions that the bank found fishy. "OGE has concluded that the information related to the payment made by Mr. Cohen is required to be reported and that the information provided meets the disclosure requirement for a reportable liability", a note in the forms reads. Instead, he put his assets in a trust controlled by his two adult sons and a senior executive.

Though it was published three decades ago, his book The Art of The Deal previous year generated as much as $1 million.
