Trump disclosure form mentions Cohen payment

US President Donald Trump's longtime personal lawyer Michael Cohen asked the Qatari government for at least US$1 million (RM3.95 million) in December 2016 in exchange for access or insight into the Trump administration, the Washington Post reported yesterday.

But Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani told Fox News Channel's Laura Ingraham that he didn't think the repayment "had to be disclosed at all because I think it was an expenditure that he reimbursed".

The deputy attorney general is overseeing the Department of Justice investigation into whether Trump aides colluded with alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

The $100,000 was paid out in 2016 but was not reported in the president's disclosure a year ago. But Giuliani said in early May that the president had indeed repaid Cohen.

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.

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

Giuliani said there was no debate about whether to reimburse Cohen.

The US government's ethics watchdog on Wednesday referred President Donald Trump's apparent hush-money payment to a porn star to the Justice Department for possible investigation.

Trump had denied knowing where Cohen received the money to make the payment.

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.

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

Ms Dillon did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

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. His Doral club, as was the case past year, dwarfed the rest of his golf properties, with revenues of nearly $75 million.

His Washington, DC, hotel near the Oval Office, a magnet for diplomats and lobbyists, took in $40 million.

Trump's hotel in the United States capital, which opened in late 2016, took in $40.4 million during 2017 while the Florida resort had revenues of $25.1 million previous year. "He had donated something close to $100 million, what's another $100,000?"

Mr. Trump listed liabilities of at least $250 million, with Deutsche Bank as his biggest creditor. The latest is the one that fueled last week's reports; it describes transactions with companies including Novartis and AT&T, which occurred from September 2017 to January 2018 and totaled almost a million dollars. Instead, he put his assets in a trust controlled by his two adult sons and a senior executive. The president owes Deutsch Bank as much as $175 million. Trump can take back control of the trust at any time, and he's allowed to withdraw cash from it as he pleases.
