Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who is now serving as President Donald Trump's attorney, said today's disclosure of the President's new financial statement explains why he purposely went public with the revelation that Trump paid back his personal attorney for a payment to porn star Stormy Daniels.

Avenatti now represents Stephanie Clifford, the adult film star who goes by the stage name Stormy Daniels, in her battle to be released from a nondisclosure agreement she made with Cohen ahead of the 2016 presidential elections.

A footnote to disclosures submitted to the Office of Government Ethics said Mr Cohen had incurred "expenses" on Mr Trump's behalf in 2016 of between US$100,001 and US$250,000.

Cohen has repeatedly said the potential deal was dead in January 2016, but BuzzFeed News reported Thursday that Cohen and Sater were still working on the project well into Trump's campaign in 2016 and that a meeting between Trump and Putin in Russian Federation was not finally ruled out until July 2016.

They later spoke again outside a meeting in Mr Trump Tower in NY on 12 December 2016, where al-Rumaihi was part of a Qatari delegation that included Foreign Minister Sheikh Mohammed al-Thani, the Post reported.


Trump's acknowledgment that he reimbursed Cohen puts the president "at the middle of all of the campaign finance violations", said Paul S Ryan, head of litigation at Common Cause. Sater told Yahoo News he provided the texts to investigators voluntarily and without a subpoena. According to Avenatti, the two women's claims followed the same pattern as Clifford's: an alleged intimate affair with the president became a payoff from Cohen.

Trump: Well, you'll have to ask Michael Cohen.

The newly-released financial documents also offered a glimpse of the performance of two of Trump's flagship hotels: the Trump International Hotel in Washington - which has attracted crowds of lobbyists, lawmakers and foreign governments with business before the federal government, and Trump's Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida, dubbed the "Winter White House". The disclosure was not included in Trump's 2017 filing. He said he had not been reimbursed by Trump's company or Trump's campaign.

The two SARs in question reportedly show transactions totaling about $1 million in bank transfers over the span of about seven months, and some $2 million in activity during a three-month period ending in September 2017.

In an earlier interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity, however, Giuliani had said that Cohen was doing "no work for the president". All my communications show I was tenaciously trying to get a supertall tower built and nothing else, ' Sater said.
