Reports on Other 'Suspicious' Michael Cohen Transactions Have Gone Missing

Reports on Other 'Suspicious' Michael Cohen Transactions Have Gone Missing

Daniels had previously described a 2006 liaison with Trump before signing a non-disclosure agreement shortly before the November 2016 presidential election.

Later that week, the president said the newly hired Mr Giuliani needed time to "get his facts straight".

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

Investigative journalist Ronan Farrow appeared on Wednesday night's Rachel Maddow Show to explain how he obtained the records that led to his latest break-through investigation into the Stormy Daniels and Michael Cohen scandal. "We've gotten assurances that we're not involved in it", Giuliani told "The Ingraham Angle" on Fox News.

But ethics experts say that if that payment was knowingly and wilfully left out, Mr Trump could be in violation of federal ethics laws.

The payments have raised a number questions of ethics and campaign finance law: whether Cohen improperly combined his personal money with those of a client and whether the payment constituted a loan or contribution to Trump's campaign.

Cohen is under investigation by the FBI, which raided his home and office last month and seized documents that included information about the payment to Daniels.

The US Office of Government Ethics even disclosed that Trump and Cohen's payments were inconsistent. But Giuliani said in early May that the president had indeed repaid Cohen. Cohen's attorney Stephen Ryan did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Reuters on the reports. In all, Mr Trump took in at least $453 million from hotels, resorts, books and other business ventures.

The Ukraine-born Vekselberg is the founder and president of Russia's largest conglomerate, the Renova Group, which has enabled him to become one of the country's wealthiest men-worth an estimated $13.5 billion as of 2015.

Mr. Trump's golf clubs also had substantial revenue: his golf club in Jupiter, Florida made $14 million, while Bedminster brought in $15 million. His Doral club, as was the case past year, dwarfed the rest of his golf properties, with revenues of nearly $75 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. "He had donated something close to $100 million, what's another $100,000?"

The debt figures are given in broad ranges in the report and capped at $50 million, so it's unclear just how much Trump actually owes.

Cohen also stands accused of seeking to cash in on his proximity to the president, after it emerged he received millions of dollars from a Russian oligarch and major corporations seeking access to the administration.

The request to Qatar would be the latest such exchange offered by Cohen to be made public following acknowledgements by USA and European companies last week that they paid Cohen, who was Trump's lawyer for about a decade and self-described "fixer" for Trump. Instead, he put his assets in a trust controlled by his two adult sons and a senior executive.
