President Donald Trump reported having paid his personal attorney Michael Cohen more than $100,000 as a reimbursement for a payment made to a third party, documents released on Wednesday confirmed.
A reason for the payment to Cohen was not specified in the financial disclosure that the Office of Government Ethics released, The New York Times reported.
Cohen has admitted to having paid $130,000 to the adult film actress, Stephanie Clifford ― also known as Stormy Daniels ― after she went public about an affair that she claims to have had with Trump.
Trump’s attorney, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, earlier this month said that Trump reimbursed Cohen $130,000 for the payment to Clifford before Trump’s 2016 election. Giuliani’s statement contradicted Trump earlier having said that he had no knowledge about any payment made to Clifford.
The exact figure specified in the financial disclosure is said to be between $100,000 and $250,000.
