President Trump admits he repaid attorney Michael Cohen in financial form

The footnote appears in a report giving the first extended look at Trump's income from his properties since he became president.

President Donald Trump's latest financial disclosure form reports that he paid more than $100,000 to his personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, as reimbursement for a payment to a third party.

"You know, I think the real takeaway from all of this is a Quinnipiac poll I saw recently that said 73 percent of voters do not think the Stormy Daniels saga is of any importance", she continued.

The exact figure specified in the financial disclosure is said to be between $100,000 and $250,000. Among his holdings, he took in $25 million from his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida. Under ethics rules, officials report the value of their assets and the amount of their income in broad ranges. Daniels says she had an affair with the president. "Mr. Cohen sought reimbursement of those expenses and Mr. Trump fully reimbursed Cohen in 2017". The agency reviewed the form and made it public on Wednesday.

Several operations were postponed, while medics were forced to conduct check-ups in Out Patient Departments (OPDs) in the dark. Technical teams have reached the power plant with the secretary of the Power Division, to start work on the fault immediately.

The ethics office seemed to disagree, annotating the document: "OGE has concluded that the information related to the payment made by Mr. Cohen is required to be reported and that the information provided meets the disclosure requirement for a reportable liability".

Cohen has previously said he paid adult film actress Stormy Daniels $130,000 as part of a settlement and non-disclosure agreement reached just before the election in 2016.

Ethics experts say that if that money isn't disclosed, Trump could be in violation of ethics laws for failing to disclose a reportable item, a violation for which others have been prosecuted.
