Emails and messages between Trump personal attorney Michael Cohen and businessman Felix Sater contradict Cohen's earlier statements on how long he worked on the Trump Tower Moscow project.

This year's report shows Trump paid Mr Cohen more than $100,000 for expenses incurred in 2016, although it does not specify the objective of the reimbursement.

Rumaihi was in NY with a Qatari delegation including Foreign Minister Mohammed al-Thani, according to Reuters.

He maintains he has legal and moral authority to disseminate Michael Cohen's illegally obtained bank records, but at the same time grouses when someone points to public legal documents that show he not only ran a great coffee company into the ground, he apparently also stiffed the IRS, then lied about it.

Daniels is fighting to have a court void the nondisclosure agreement that she says Cohen had her sign to buy her silence about a one-night stand with Trump.

Rudy Giuliani, one of Trump's current lawyers, told Fox News Channel that the repayment did not have "to be disclosed at all because I think it was an expenditure that he reimbursed".

The document, signed by the President and released by the US Office of Government Ethics, did not described the objective or the recipient of the payment made by Cohen, Xinhua news agency reported.

A lawyer who purports to represent the interests of unnamed women "sexually victimized" by former New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman took aim Thursday at lawyer Michael Avenatti to bolster his motion for a protective order.

US President Donald Trump has officially disclosed his reimbursement to his lawyer, who paid a porn star to hush up her claims of an affair.

"Mr Cohen sought reimbursement of those expenses and Mr Trump fully reimbursed Mr Cohen in 2017", it said.

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.

The messages about Trump Tower Moscow, which were sent to Russian-born Trump associate Felix Sater, are now in the hands of Robert Mueller, the special counsel investigating possible Russian interference in the 2016 USA presidential election.

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.

While many pundits called Giuliani's disclosure a gaffe, Giuliani said at the time that he was working in sync with Trump.

Editor's note, May 17, 2:20 p.m.: In a statement, a spokesperson for Al-Rumaihi wrote, "In December 2016, Ahmed Al-Rumaihi and Michael Cohen met to discuss a potential Qatari investment in USA infrastructure by Qatar Investments, which is a division of the Qatar Investment Authority ("QIA")".
