Trump admits to reimbursing lawyer who paid off porn star

President Trump admitted in financial disclosure forms released Wednesday that he “fully reimbursed” lawyer Michael Cohen, who paid $130,000 to stripper Stormy Daniels in 2016 to keep quiet about an affair she claims to have had with Trump.

“In the interest of transparency,” Trump’s federal financial report revealed he paid Cohen “$100,001 – $250,000” for expenses his fixer incurred on behalf of Trump.

“In 2016 expenses were incurred by one of Donald J. Trump’s attorneys, Michael Cohen. Mr. Cohen sought reimbursement of those expenses and Mr. Trump fully reimbursed Mr. Cohen in 2017.”

The Office of Government Ethics said Trump’s payment had to be filed and “the information reported meets the disclosure requirement for a reportable liability.”

Trump’s 92-page disclosure form also reported that his Washington hotel was one of his top properties with revenues of $40.4 million in 2017.

By comparison, Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida had revenues of $25.1 million.
