Leaker of Michael Cohen's financial records makes another explosive accusation

Leaker of Michael Cohen's financial records makes another explosive accusation

"I don't think I ever changed that", Giuliani told Ingraham, before revealing that a day shy of his one month anniversary on Trump's legal team, he still doesn't have his facts straight.

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

Daniels had previously described a 2006 liaison with Trump before signing a non-disclosure agreement shortly before the November 2016 presidential election. In February, Cohen said he was never reimbursed for payment to Daniels.

Murky dealings: Cohen has said he paid $130,000 out-of-pocket to Daniels to buy her silence ahead of the 2016 presidential election. But Trump's new lawyer Rudy Giuliani has blown up that narrative in the past week when claiming that the president was not only aware of it but reimbursed Cohen for it.

Al-Rumaihi was at Trump Tower as part of a Qatari delegation that included Foreign Minister Sheikh Mohammed al-Thani, the Post said.

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.

One week after Michael Avenatti released financial records indicating Cohen used the same shell company to pay his client Stormy Daniels and receive payments from firms, The New Yorker published a bombshell report by Ronan Farrow detailing why those records were leaked. Trump: Well, you'll have to ask Michael Cohen.

A note in the document says "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". Cohen's attorney Stephen Ryan did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Reuters on the reports. The report estimated the holdings are worth at least $1.4 billion (€1.84 bn). His Doral golf course and resort in Miami took in $75 million.

Trump's hotel in the USA capital, which opened in late 2016, took in $40.4 million during 2017 while the Florida resort had revenues of $25.1 million a year ago.

His Washington, D.C., hotel near the Oval Office, a magnet for diplomats and lobbyists, took in $40 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. Mr. Trump also owes Ladder Capital at least $110 million. The documents reportedly outlined transactions that totaled more than $3 million. Instead, he put his assets in a trust controlled by his two adult sons and a senior executive. Mr. Trump is also still picking up a Screen Actors Guild pension of almost $65,000 from his years as a reality TV host and sometime bit player in movies.

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.

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