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

Ronan Farrow reveals to Rachel Maddow how he was able to obtain Michael Cohen's confidential financial records

The announcement comes after Novartis was dragged into the scandal over Cohen's payment of $130,000 to United States porn actress Stormy Daniels just days before the 2016 presidential election.

The payment to Daniels was made as a payoff in order for Daniels to keep quiet about an alleged sexual encounter with Trump more than a decade ago. "The information provided meets the disclosure requirement for a reportable liability".

Last year's disclosure revealed that Trump's total income from January 2016 through January 2017 was somewhere between $600 million and $650 million. The value of the payment ranged from $100,001 to $250,000.

The office indicated in the documents that it believed the president should have publicly listed the payment to Cohen in the form he filed last year-not this one. "As a co-signatory with our former CEO, I take personal responsibility to bring the public debate on this matter to an end". The president denies the affair, and initially denied all knowledge of the payment, which Cohen has acknowledged was meant to stop her from going public with the allegations.

Facing backlash and ire from worldwide and local media, the NSC meet was called. He said misunderstandings are removed in the light of the facts.

The head of the Office of Government Ethics (OGE) flagged that discrepancy to deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein in case it is "relevant to any inquiry you may be pursuing". The Ethics in Government Act requires the president to disclose any liabilities that total more than $10,000 that occurred in the previous year, according to BuzzFeed News.

Novartis has faced public outrage in recent weeks over its payment to Essential Consultants, a company founded by Mr. Cohen in 2016. Giuliani indicated in an interview earlier this month that Trump reimbursed Cohen in installments. Giuliani indicated that the payment was "funneled through a law firm and then the president repaid it". The President reimbursed that over the period of several months. Ethics experts say that Cohen may have run afoul of foreign lobbying laws if it was the Swiss parent corporation - Novartis AG - and not the USA subsidiary that held the contract or paid him.

President Donald Trump listened to a question during a meeting, today, with Uzbek President Shavkat Mirziyoyev in the Oval Office of the White House, in Washington. The property has been popular among Republican operatives and Trump aides.

The 92-page report lists Mr. Trump's more than 200 property holdings, including Trump Tower in NY and his private Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida, valued at more than $50 million.
