Cohen Reportedly Solicited Money From The Qatari Government

A government coverup of the Cohen reports "makes no sense", said Aaron Wolfson, a lawyer who previously oversaw suspicious activity reporting for JPMorgan Chase.

Cohen is now faced with a federal investigation into his business dealings and the payment he made to an adult film star who claimed to have an affair with Trump in 2006.

After the payment to Daniels was first revealed by the Wall Street Journal, Cohen acknowledged making the payment himself.

Ms Clifford, meanwhile, is seeking to be released from the $130,000 non-disclosure agreement she signed shortly before the 2016 presidential election to stay quiet about the alleged affair.

Donald Trump's failure to report his $130,000 payoff to adult film star Stormy Daniels may have been a criminal offense, and the matter has been referred to the Department of Justice, Huffington Post is reporting.

The widening trade dispute between the world's two biggest economies has taken a toll on both sides. ZTE announced last week the USA sanctions would force it to curtail major operations.

On Wednesday, the Office of Government Ethics determined that the payment constituted a loan that should have been reported on the president's June 2017 financial disclosure form.

"Mr Trump fully reimbursed Mr Cohen", the disclosure report said.

A Qatari diplomat - who told the Post about Cohen's offer - said the lawyer offered to find USA infrastructure projects for Qatar to sponsor in exchange for the $1 million.

UTA co-president Jay Sures, who is Scaramucci's agent, made the pitch, as first reported by The New York Times.

Cohen facilitated a $130,000 payment to porn star Stormy Daniels.

Amtrak and most local commuter railroads in the NY metropolitan area said their services were back to normal on Wednesday. Pictures posted on social media showed concourses at Grand Central Terminal jammed with stranded passengers.

Meanwhile, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics has filed a complaint against Trump.

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". Daniels says she had an affair with the president. According to the official, two other SARs documenting Cohen's questionable financial transactions, which reportedly total around $3 million, were missing from the database maintained by the Treasury Department's Financial Crimes Enforcement Network, or FinCEN.

Gleason says he consulted Michael Cohen, the embattled private attorney of President Donald Trump, years earlier about Schneiderman accusers.

Vice President Mike Pence has released his annual financial disclosure, reporting a pension plan from the state of IN worth between $500,000 and $1 million and credit card debt between $15,000 and $50,000.

Cohen spoke to him again at Trump Tower when the two men were outside the meeting between Foreign Minister Mohammed al-Thani and Flynn.
