Whistleblower Leaked Michael Cohen's Financials Over Potential Cover-Up

On Wednesday, President Donald Trump submitted his 2017 financial disclosure report, and he included a payment he made to attorney Michael Cohen as reimbursement for a payment Cohen made to a third party in 2016 (the third party was unnamed but is believed to be Stormy Daniels).

"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.

Avenatti's constant appearances on cable television have earned him the moniker of being a thorn in President Donald Trump's side, as he has brought Daniels' lawsuit against Trump and his attorney Michael Cohen into the public square.

Karen McDougal, another former Playmate who received a hush money payment from AMI, the pro-Trump media conglomerate that publishes the National Enquirer, alleged that Davidson was secretly communicating with Cohen while he was representing her.

Asked if the payments were similar to the $130,000 amount paid to Daniels to stay quiet about her 2006 affair with Trump, Avenatti said "yes".

Cohen has repeatedly said the potential deal was dead in January 2016, but BuzzFeed News reported Thursday that Cohen and Sater were still working on the project well into Trump's campaign in 2016 and that a meeting between Trump and Putin in Russian Federation was not finally ruled out until July 2016. Because Cohen's files were raided by the FBI, part of a criminal investigation in which Daniels is vying to intervene, Gleason says his privileged conversations with Cohen should be protected.

The payment is under investigation by federal prosecutors in NY.

Cohen, citing the need to prepare for the 2016 Republican Nation Convention in July, did not attend the forum, the Washington Post reported.

Trump had previously disputed whether he was aware of the payment by Cohen and whether he reimbursed him. All have confirmed payments to Cohen. Among his holdings, he took in $25 million from his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida.

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

Rumaihi said Wednesday that Cohen first asked for the money, and Rumaihi refused, several days before the Trump Tower meeting, when the two saw each other at the Peninsula Hotel in NY. "To say that I am terrified right now would be an understatement", the official said. The President reimbursed that over the period of several months.

Trump listed the reimbursement to Cohen in his financial disclosure report.

The disclosure also shows President Trump's current net worth at $3.1 billion. Farrow's article is based on an interview with a law enforcement official who leaked a confidential Treasury document known as a "suspicious-activity report" filed by First Republic Bank, with whom Cohen's shell company, Essential Consulting, has an account.
