STILL NOT A CRIME: Trump Financial Disclosure Shows Reimbursement to Lawyer Cohen After Stormy Payment
Whatever happened to Russia collusion???
The Daily Mail today released information from President Trump’s financial disclosure form that shows a payment to Michael Cohen for a reimbursement of $250,000 suspected to be for his payment to porn star Stormy Daniels.
However, this would STILL not be a crime despite the wishes of the conspiracy media.
The Daily Mail reported:
President Donald Trump revealed in his financial disclosure form that he reimbursed Michael Cohen for loans of between $100,00 and $250,000 – paying back for ‘expenses’ the man who says he paid porn star Stormy Daniels.
The form notes that ‘expenses were incurred by one of Donald J. Trump’s attorneys,’ and Trump disclosed it ‘in the interest of transparency.’ It was contained in a line beneath a section where large bank loans of as much as $50 million were listed.
The disclosure comes after Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani said on television that Trump reimbursed Cohen for the payment after Cohen made it on his own to try to keep the Stormy Daniels claim from coming out, then walked back the statement.
Cohen negotiated a non-disclosure agreement withe former porn star who says she had an affair with Trump. The agreement used pseudonyms, and required she not speak about the alleged affair, which Trump denies. It is signed by Cohen and Daniels, but not by Trump, although the pseudonym David Dennison refers to him.
And officials have still not been able to identify the man who Stormy said threatened her because of her one night stand with Donald Trump.
It’s not clear if they have interviewed her former partner for the crime.
