Trump Discloses Payment to Cohen in Financial Report.

Source: nyt

President Trumpís financial disclosure, released on Wednesday, revealed for the first time that he paid more than $100,000 to his personal attorney, Michael D. Cohen, as reimbursement for payment to a third-party.

The disclosure, released by the Office of Government Ethics, did not specify the purpose of the payment. However, Mr. Cohen has paid $130,000 to an adult film actress, Stephanie Clifford, who has claimed she had an affair with Mr. Trump.

Mr. Cohen has said he made the payment to keep the actress, who goes by the stage name Stormy Daniels, from going public before the 2016 election with her story about an affair with Mr. Trump.

A footnote in the disclosure said that Mr. Cohen had requested reimbursement of the expenses incurred in 2016 and Mr. Trump had repaid it in full in 2017. It did not give an exact amount of the payment but said it was between $100,001 and $250,000.

7. I doubt we'll EVER see those tax returns. The IRS sure does take a long time auditing, dont they?

I mean, that was the only reason he wasnt releasing them, so what on earth is taking SO long?

8. If it ever got around to realizing that it lies all the time.. It would take another lifetime

to understand its explanations and further prevarications.

Spoiled little boy who wouldn't be able to find a real job, feed itself, and be part of the real world.

6. Well, he SAYS he paid before he lied and said he had not paid.

In real life...who the hell knows? Maybe the money came straight from Putin.
