Trump disclosure form includes payment to porn star

Ronan Farrow reveals to Rachel Maddow how he was able to obtain Michael Cohen's confidential financial records

President Donald Trump acknowledged for the first time that he repaid his lawyer Michael Cohen more than $100,000 for expenses Cohen incurred during the 2016 presidential election, according to a financial disclosure form released Wednesday.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders faced questions from the press yesterday as large companies admitted to entering into deals with a supposed shell company run by President Donald Trump's lawyer Michael Cohen.

Trump's disclosure, which includes all of 2017 and part of 2018, is being closely watched to see whether it will disclose the $130,000 paid to porn star Stormy Daniels on his behalf by his attorney Michael Cohen. Daniels says she had an affair with the president. The president has vehemently denied any such relationship took place. "The category of value would be $100,001 - $250,000 and the interest rate would be zero". In the letter, the head of the OGE, David Apol, reiterates that his office has concluded the debt to Cohen was "required to be reported".

Trump submitted the document on Tuesday, the deadline for administration employees to file their financial documents.

Earlier this year, Trump told reporters on Air Force One that he had not known about Cohen's payment to Daniels. The agency reviewed the form and made it public on Wednesday.

Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington has contended that Trump should have reported the reimbursement past year.

The 92-page report lists Mr. Trump's more than 200 property holdings, including Trump Tower in NY and his private Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida, valued at more than $50 million.

Novartis, a Swiss pharmaceutical company, said in a statement that they had entered into a year-long deal with Cohen "shortly after the election of President Trump, focused on US healthcare policy matters". It indicates that his Washington hotel, a popular spot for lobbyists and Republican aides and among one of his most successful properties, had revenues of over $40 million in 2017.
