Stormy Daniels' lawyer: US company linked to Russian oligarch pa

Michael Cohen leaves federal court in New York

Yes, Avenatti posted a report that alleges Vekselberg sent payments totaling $500,000 to Cohen through the company Columbus Nova LLC, from January to August 2017.

The firm is a DE business started by Cohen, and it's been previously identified as the source of the hush payment to Clifford. He later clarified to say Trump knew about the payment, but did not know what it was for.

The White House has repeatedly denied that Trump and Daniels had an affair.

"Mr Cohen inexplicably accepted these payments while he was the personal attorney to the president", the document said. Cohen had earlier claimed that the non-disclosure payment came from his own funds, and Trump had told he was unaware it had been been made. The donations were unusual for Intrater, who previously donated a combined $3,800 to two candidates, one Republican and one Democrat.

In a statement, Novartis spokesman Eric Althoff said, "Any agreements with Essential Consultants were entered before our current CEO taking office in February of this year and have expired".

Cohen, who is under federal criminal investigation for potential bank fraud, did not respond to an email seeking comment on the payments, nor did his lawyer.

"I thought she went too far as well", Piscopo said, calling her set "too mean-spirited".

The stakes are sky-high for Cohen, who is now under a federal criminal investigation by the USA attorney's office in Manhattan and had his home, hotel room and office raided last month. Stephen Ryan, a lawyer representing Cohen, declined to comment.

Cohen's company, according to the report, received large sums of money from companies with an interest in Trump administration business.

President Donald Trump will be "forced to resign" over claims a porn star was given $130,000 to keep quiet after having an affair with him, her lawyer has claimed.

Speculating without offering proof, the Avenatti memo said, "It appears these funds may have replenished the account following the payment to Ms. Clifford".

Norman Eisen, ethics chief under Trump predecessor Democrat Barack Obama, said any such payments would have constituted campaign contributions if they were meant to influence the election, even if they were also made with the 'partial motive of protecting the Trump family from embarrassment'.

Vekselberg also oversaw fundraising for the Moscow Jewish Museum, including hosting a 2014 gala in Russian Federation attended by Trump's daughter Ivanka and her husband, Jared Kushner.
