Trump repaid attorney Cohen for 2016 payment made on his behalf: ethics disclosure

President Donald Trump repaid his attorney Michael Cohen for an expense greater than $100,001 and less than $250,000 that was incurred in 2016, according to ethics disclosures signed by the president that were released by the Office of Government Ethics on Wednesday.

Cohen made a $130,000 payment to [Blank Post] star Stormy Daniels shortly before the Nov. 8, 2016, presidential election in exchange for her remaining silent about an alleged affair she had with Trump.

That is kinda of cheap shot at Christians IMO, now if you said many Christians have little problem looking the other way at DT's numerous shortcomings, I wouldn't have felt the need to comment. :D

Nothing new here. Cohen was always on retainer by Trump. I do not know if he still is. President Trump making payments to Cohen is no big secret. I do not see where a check for $130K was written by President Trump. Trump also made payments to Cohen in 2014, 2015 and so on.

That's what I meant in a round about way.
The hypocrisy is endless.

As we've discussed, if this was handled as a retainer it will get Cohen disbarred.

The disclosure says it was a loan from Cohen to Rump, which Rump repaid. The new disclosure which as made only after the transaction was common knowledge shows that the omission of the previous disclosure was intentional...a crime.

Will you buy everything the rump is selling ? You do not see the lies ? It is interesting to see this phenomenon of different views and who the f knows ,,,,your version of reality has validity I dount think you are a nut job but I am not completely divorced from reality either...I can only say I do not know the truth and hopefully the FBI is not as corrupt as you think.

You are a riot. You have been posting fake news since you have been on this forum. As to the FBI the rank and file are good. It is those clowns on the 7th floor of the FBI building that are the dirty cops. People like Comey, McCabe, Strzok and Page to name a few. I have no idea why Strzok is still employed by the FBI unless he is telling all.

So anybody in the FBI assigned to investigate Rump is the problem, anybody not given that assignment is good....seriously?

Rump's latest disclosure has been referred to the DOJ...it turns out making false statements is a crime, who knew?

The evidence points to possible crimes committed by the FBI. This reportedly is in the IG report. By the way that is not exactly what I said. It is the leadership who has proven to be corrupt. As to the DOJ Rod Rosenstein has a big conflict of interest in regard to the Mueller investigation.

We'll see....but if you're looking for corruption perhaps you should shift your gaze to the WH. You're worried about tiny details of a criminal probe when across town they are using US foreign policy as a protection racket.
