Also, Rudy Giuliani, recently named Trump's personal attorney, has said Trump reimbursed Cohen for the original $130,000 payment, which was made shortly before Trump's victory in the 2016 presidential election.

Also, Rudy Giuliani, recently named Trump's personal attorney, has said Trump reimbursed Cohen for the original $130,000 payment, which was made shortly before Trump's victory in the November 8, 2016 presidential election.

Trump acknowledged in the disclosure form for the first time that he fully reimbursed Cohen previous year for "expenses" ranging between $100,001 and $250,000.

The 92-page disclosure form said the payment was "not required to be disclosed as 'reportable liabilities, '" though it said Trump disclosed it "in the interest of transparency".

Common Cause, a nonpartisan watchdog group in Washington, has filed a complaint with the U.S. Federal Election Commission, claiming Trump broke the law when his campaign excluded details about the $130,000 payment in legally mandated filings. 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.

Cohen's company Essential Consultants had a one-year $1.2 million contract with Novartis during the beginning of the Trump administration.

Trump: No, I don't know.

Vice President Mike Pence in his discloser form said that he had more than Dollars 100,000 in student loans for his children and USD 15,000 as credit-debit debt.

After the payment to Daniels was first revealed by the Wall Street Journal, Cohen acknowledged making the payment himself.

Cohen's attorney, Steve Ryan, refused to discuss the $500,000 deposit when requested to do so by The Atlantic, but insisted it "wasn't a payment".

After the one meeting in NY with Novartis staff, Cohen occasionally contacted Novartis, at one stage suggesting it build a new US factory.

And David Apol, director of the Office of Government Ethics, referred the matter to the Justice Department.

Cohen is under investigation by the FBI, which raided his home and office last month and seized documents that included information about the payment to Daniels.

Shaub, who served as the ethics czar during President Barack Obama's second term, noted that Apol's letter to Rosenstein is tantamount to a "criminal referral". It says Trump "fully reimbursed Mr. Cohen in 2017".

While Apol didn't say so in his letter, this means Trump could have committed a crime by not disclosing the liability in his financial disclosure report a year ago.

In his financial discloser form, Trump has listed assets of at least United States dollars 1.4 billion and income of more than USD 452 million.

However, the contract could not immediately be terminated and Novartis had to wait until the full $1.2 million had been paid to Cohen's company.

Jimenez, who said he spoke with Cohen on the phone but never met him, said his real mistake was to continue payments after Novartis concluded Trump's attorney could not deliver useful insights that he had promised. The ethic documents is an annual disclosure made by federal officials.
