Did Donald Trump reimburse attorney who paid off porn star Stormy Daniels?

The president denies the affair, and initially denied all knowledge of the payment, which Mr Cohen has acknowledged was meant to stop her from going public with the allegations. 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.

Colombus Nova paid about $US500,000 to Mr Cohen.

The disclosure caps a series of contradictory statements from Trump and his representatives on the scandal swirling around lawyer Michael Cohen - which has widened to ensnare major corporations and a Russian oligarch.

The U.S. Office of Government Ethics (OGE) released the disclosure forms Wednesday, along with a letter from OGE head David Apol to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein in response to a request from a left-wing corruption watchdog group, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW), to investigate.

Farrow spoke to the law-enforcement official who leaked the documents, and who has not been publicly identified.

The payments were detailed in a "suspicious-activity report" filed by First Republic Bank, where Essentials Consults maintained an account.

CBS News has reached out to the Treasury Department for comment. It's a stockpile of information. "Things that stand out as abnormal, like documents being removed from a system, are of grave concern to me".

Mr Cohen's partners, first Symon Garber and then New York's one-time taxi king Evgeny Freidman, have both had constant run-ins with regulators. "Mr Trump fully reimbursed Mr Cohen", the report said.

Robinson was allegedly being investigated for drugs and was spotted at a local gas station when he took off in his vehicle . Robinson's grieving family is calling for an investigation by an agency other than the local police department.

The official is reportedly anxious that the documents are "being withheld from law enforcement", though another possibility is that they may have been restricted due to their contents, potentially at the request of special counsel Robert Mueller - though sources told The New Yorker such a move would be highly unusual. The president denies the affair, and initially denied all knowledge of the payment, which Cohen has acknowledged was meant to stop her from going public with the allegations.

Their payments were funnelled through the same shelf company he used to pay off Stormy Daniels.

Rudy Giuliani, Mr. Trump's newest personal attorney, revealed the reimbursement earlier this month.

The telecom giant AT&T and the Swiss pharmaceutical company Novartis are among the companies that contracted Cohen's services, for which AT&T paid Cohen $600,000 and Novartis paid him $1.2 million.

Mr Rumaihi told him that Qatar expected to invest in the programme, and Mr Cohen offered to help find projects for Qatar to sponsor, in exchange for a US$1 million up-front fee.

It was immediately following Mr Trump's trip to Riyadh that the Saudis, along with the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Egypt, said they were severing relations with Qatar and instituting a blockade of its territory.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller and the United States attorney for the Southern District of NY, which conducted raids last month on Mr Cohen's NY residence and office, are investigating his activities.
