Trump Should Have Disclosed Daniels Payment, Ethics Office Says

Share

Cohen made a $130,000 payment to porn star Stormy Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, shortly before the November 8, 2016, presidential election in exchange for her staying silent about an alleged affair she had with Trump. Trump, who has denied having a sexual relationship with Daniels during his marriage to First Lady Melania Trump, said earlier this month that he reimbursed Cohen.

Last year, Trump did not disclose any debts to Cohen, who executed a payment of $130,000 to Clifford less than two weeks before the 2016 presidential election.

The disclosure did not specify what the reimbursement was for, and gave just a range: $101,000-$250,000.

It's not only a juicy matchup on paper between two of college football's premier programs, but it's a win for fans as well. Texas has also announced a home game against UTEP in 2020, but no one will be talking about that one.

But the acting director of the ethics office, David Apol, in a letter to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein said it should have been disclosed in ethics documents that Trump filed in June 2017. "Mr. Trump fully reimbursed Mr. Cohen", the report said.

"Today, the President filed his annual financial disclosure report with OGE and it is now under review", a tweet from the ethics office said. Apol's letter was released with the Trump disclosures.

The disclosure forms that he's required to submit to the ethics office provide a more limited view of his finances.

In regard to the students and teachers, Simonton said they were prepared and that they did exactly what we asked them to do. The suspect then shot at the officer, who returned fire and injured the male, who was arrested.

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. Giuliani indicated in an interview earlier this month that Trump reimbursed Cohen in installments. For instance, it showed that Trump received more than $25 million in income in 2017 from Mar-a-Lago, his private club in Palm Beach, Florida, and more than $15 million in income from his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey.

The White House confirmed that Trump and Vice President Mike Pence filed their financial disclosures Tuesday, along with the reports of some 25,000 senior executive branch officials, but declined to comment further.
