Giuliani is still confused about basic facts of Stormy Daniels hush payment

US President Donald Trump repaid his lawyer Michael Cohen over $100,000 for expenses that Cohen incurred during the 2016 presidential election, according to a financial disclosure form released on Wednesday.

Trump confirmed on May 3 that he had reimbursed Cohen the United States dollars 130,000 he had given to Daniels days before the 2016 election to buy her silence over an alleged affair with the then presidential candidate.

Ex-Novartis (NOVN.S) Chief Executive Joe Jimenez regrets rushing into a $100,000-per-month (74,280 pounds) consulting contract with U.S. President Donald Trump's personal lawyer but said post-election uncertainty over the administration's healthcare ideas put pressure on the Swiss drugmaker to sign a deal quickly.

Apol wrote that he considers Trump's payment to Cohen to be a repayment on a loan and that it was required to be included in Trump's June 2017 disclosure.

In his annual disclosure of personal finances, President Trump acknowledged that he paid lawyer Michael Cohen between $100,000 and $250,000 a year ago.

This buyback authorization allows the network equipment provider to purchase shares of its stock through open market purchases. Murphy Middleton Hinkle & Parker Inc. bought a new position in Cisco Systems in the 4th quarter worth approximately $705,000.

The Office of Government Ethics found on Wednesday that Mr Trump ought to have revealed the payment in his previous financial disclosure. "The payment to Ms. Clifford was lawful, and was not a campaign contribution or a campaign expenditure by anyone". Playboy model Karen McDougal has also alleged in a lawsuit that Cohen was involved in a $150,000 agreement she made with a Trump-friendly tabloid publisher to prevent her from telling the story of her alleged 2006 affair with Trump to any other outlet. Dillon didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.

Representative Elijah Cummings, top Democrat on the House of Representatives Oversight Committee, said in a statement he is pushing for the panel to investigate the payments. The report said the president did not have to disclose the payment but was doing so "in the interest of transparency".

The ethics office is a government watchdog that provides oversight of the executive branch program created to prevent and resolve conflicts of interest.

The letter constitutes a referral by the ethics office of a possible false financial filing.

Cohen was the target of raids last month in an investigation by the US Attorney's Office for the Southern District of NY, after a referral from Mueller. "Mr. Cohen sought reimbursement of those expenses and Mr. Trump fully reimbursed Mr. Cohen in 2017".

Oil dips on signs of ample supply despite OPEC cuts, Iran sanctions
Ample supplies in the market and potential production increases by USA and European oil giants helped ease recent price hikes. Venezuela's production is plummeting, and output is 550,000 bpd below it's agreed upon target as part of the OPEC deal.

The ethics disclosure also showed 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.

"My client was not alone as it relates to these payments", Avenatti said.

The hush-money payment to Daniels is reportedly a focus of a federal investigation into Cohen's private finances and business interests.

"Frankly I love the idea that the Office of Government Ethics says that everything is fully disclosed and therefore its ethical", Giuliani told CNN.
