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

Daniels' lawyer, Michael Avenatti, tweeted, "Mr. Trump's disclosure today conclusively proves that the American people were deceived".

Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, claims she had a tryst with Trump in 2006 while he was married.

Earlier this year, Trump told reporters on Air Force One that he had not known about Cohen's payment to Daniels.

In a footnote in tiny type on Page 45 of his 92-page disclosure, Trump said he reimbursed Cohen for "expenses" ranging from $100,001 to $250,000.

President Donald Trump's personal attorney Michael Cohen reportedly offered Qatar advice and access to the Trump administration in late 2016 in exchange for at least $1 million.

David Apol, the acting director of the Office of Government Ethics, sent a letter to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein Wednesday, saying that, "based on the information provided as a note. the payment made by Mr. Cohen is required to be reported as a liability". In a letter to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, Apol said the disclosure may be relevant to an investigation into the financial disclosure report Trump filed a year ago, which did not disclose the no-interest loan.

For operating New York's Wollman Rink in Central Park, the president took in $9.3 million.

The Washington Post reported that Cohen is under investigation for possible bank fraud, wire fraud and campaign finance violations. Things that stand out as abnormal, like documents being removed from a system, are of grave concern to me, ' the law enforcement official said, adding, 'To say that I am terrified right now would be an understatement'.

"Not a lick. We're completely uninvolved in that".

"It took a couple of weeks to figure out exactly what we had to do about it and there was a bit of debate about it - not about disclosing but about how to disclose", Giuliani said.

Though it was published three decades ago, Trump's "The Art of The Deal" previous year generated as much as $1 million.

The biggest bombshell concerned how the public learned about that contract and other payments received by Cohen's company, Essential Consultants.

These were the reports that Stormy Daniels lawyer Michael Avenatti released.

In his testimony released Wednesday, Trump Jr said he did not tell his father ahead of time about the 2016 meeting at Trump Tower, also attended by the Republican candidate's campaign manager Paul Manafort and son-in-law Jared Kushner.

The document filed by President Trump states that he disclosed the payment "in the interest of transparency" and not because he was required to do so.

In his financial discloser form, Trump has listed assets of at least Dollars 1.4 billion and income of more than USD 452 million.

And a man who worked as a translator for Cohen and a South Korean aerospace firm that paid Cohen's company $150,000 past year told the Washington Post that he was contacted by FBI agents - suggesting that either Mueller's team or other federal investigators are examining his contract with Korea Aerospace Industries.

The report also showed Trump earned between $230,000 and $1.1 million in capital gains income on stock in iPhone maker Apple, Caterpillar, Microsoft and Pepsico.
