Michael Cohen Offered Qatar Investments Access To Trump. The Offer Was Declined

The head of the nation's ethics office is questioning why President Donald Trump didn't disclose a year ago that he owed personal attorney Michael Cohen as much as $250,000 for unspecified "expenses".

"I enjoy my law practice and look forward to prevailing on behalf of my client Stormy Daniels", he added, using the stage name of the actress, Stephanie Clifford.

Some critics have questioned whether Avenatti's media strategy serves the interests of Daniels in her litigation against Trump and his former personal lawyer, Michael Cohen.

Trump had claimed in early 2018 that he had no knowledge of Cohen's payment to Daniels.

He had told Cohen that Qatar was interested in investing in Trump's planned infrastructure projects for the USA, when the lawyer said he could help Doha find projects to sponsor, in exchange for $1 million up front.

Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump's personal attorney, reportedly lied to Congress concerning the timeline of a Trump Tower building deal with Russian Federation, according to reports from Yahoo News.

Mr Cohen, whose records relating to the settlement were seized in an FBI raid last month, is now reportedly under criminal investigation.

'Avengers: Infinity War' scores second-biggest opening in China box office history
It was certainly a powerful moment in the film, especially for Peter and Gamora's relationship, which now spans three movies . Despite its huge opening, Infinity War still didn't beat out The Fate of the Furious for No.1 opening weekend in China.

Before taking office, Trump said he shifted day-to-day control of his business to his sons, primarily Eric Trump.

Swiss pharmaceutical giant Novartis Wednesday announced the retirement of its top legal expert over the $1.2 million in payments to Cohen, while AT&T has said it made a "big mistake" by paying the lawyer some $600,000.

The lawyer for Stormy Daniels, Michael Avenatti, wrote on Twitter, "Mr. Trump's disclosure today conclusively proves that the American people were deceived.This was NOT an accident and it was not isolated". Apol's letter was released with the Trump disclosures.

Vice President Mike Pence in his discloser form said that he had more than United States dollars 100,000 in student loans for his children and USD 15,000 as credit-debit debt. That revelation came after months of denials from Trump that he knew anything about the payment.

Sater, who worked closely with Trump and had an office in the president's NY tower, reached out to Cohen in May 2016 and tried to gauge when Trump could fit the trip to Moscow into his busy campaign schedule.

The White House confirmed that Trump and Vice President Mike Pence filed their financial disclosures Tuesday, along with the reports of some 25,000 senior executive branch officials, but declined to comment further. Farrow's article is based on an interview with a law enforcement official who leaked a confidential Treasury document known as a "suspicious-activity report" filed by First Republic Bank, with whom Cohen's shell company, Essential Consulting, has an account.
