Footnote in Trump report lists 'reimbursement' payment to Michael Cohen

Michael Avenatti, Anthony Scaramucci-Led TV Show Being Shopped

The documents released Wednesday by a U.S. government ethics body do not specify the reason for the payments to Cohen, who paid $130,000 to adult film actress Stormy Daniels in the run-up to the 2016 election.

Daniels' lawyer, who is representing the porn star in her case against the president over a nondisclosure agreement she signed to keep quiet about an alleged affair, said that these multiple women claim to have agreements with Cohen or Trump to keep quiet about their own affairs with Trump.

Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani insisted Trump disclosed the repayments to Cohen in this year's report out of "an abundance of caution".

Swiss pharmaceutical giant Novartis on Wednesday announced the retirement of its top legal expert, as he apologised for payments made by the firm to Donald Trump's personal lawyer Michael Cohen. "Mr. Cohen sought reimbursement of those expenses and Mr. Trump fully reimbursed Cohen in 2017". "The payment to Ms. Clifford was lawful, and was not a campaign contribution or a campaign expenditure by anyone".

Giuliani said there was no debate about whether to reimburse Cohen.

"They funneled through a law firm, and the President repaid it", Giuliani said. The report said the president did not have to disclose the payment but was doing so "in the interest of transparency".

Jimmy Kimmel took a swing at the big networks, including his own, during ABC's upfront presentation to advertisers on Tuesday . Dungey also said that it wasn't yet clear whether ABC would order additional episodes of " Roseanne " for the fall season.

Ethics disclosures are an annual requirement for senior federal officials and are overseen by the ethics office, a government office that provides oversight of an executive branch program to prevent and resolve conflicts of interest. The White House did not respond to requests for comment to clarify the reason for Trump's payment to Cohen.

CREW, a liberal-leaning watchdog group, filed a complaint with the ethics office that was referenced in Apol's letter.

The report also came just days after The New York Times reported that the team representing Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election had stopped and searched Vekselberg when he stepped off a private plane at a New York-area airport earlier this year.

Cohen is under investigation by the FBI, which raided his home and office last month and seized documents that included information about the payment to Daniels.

Personal gifts disclosed by Trump include golf-related items from two professional golfers: a golf bag and clubs worth $1,150 from Kevin Streelman and $750 clubs from Bryson Dechambeau.

Jimenez, who said he spoke with Cohen on the phone but never met him, said his real mistake was to continue payments after Novartis concluded Trump's attorney could not deliver useful insights that he had promised.
