President Donald Trump acknowledged for the first time that he repaid his lawyer Michael Cohen more than $100,000 for expenses Cohen incurred during the 2016 presidential election, according to a financial disclosure form released Wednesday.

President Donald Trump has submitted his annual financial disclosure to the U.S. Office of Government Ethics and it's expected to be made public in the coming days.

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

"There is substantial evidence that President Trump had knowledge of the loan when he filed his 2017 [financial disclosure form] notwithstanding his failure to report it". Daniels claims she had an affair with Trump.

In his letter to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, the OGE acting director said: "You may find the disclosure relevant to any inquiry you may be pursuing".

"We have not verified the documents", Avenatti cautioned, but added that if the payments are bona fide, the timing of them could be "problematic" for Cohen and Trump.

Trump's attorney, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, earlier this month said that Trump reimbursed Cohen $130,000 for the payment to Clifford before Trump's 2016 election.

Mr Mueller is investigating possible collusion between Trump's 2016 presidential campaign and Russian Federation, something that Mr Trump has repeatedly denied.

The Arab League also called for an global investigation into the killings at an emergency meeting in Cairo on Thursday. Palestinian envoy Riyad Mansour said on Tuesday he would begin negotiations to try to get the resolution adopted.

Apol told Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein that he was providing both Trump's 2017 and 2018 disclosures, as potentially "relevant to any inquiry" the Justice Department may be pursuing into the president's filings from previous year.

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.

Sater, who worked closely with Trump and had an office in the president's NY tower, reached out to Cohen in May 2016 and tried to gauge when Trump could fit the trip to Moscow into his busy campaign schedule.

Mediate reported that in talks to MSNBC and CNN, it was emphasized Avenatti likely could not get involved until after the case involving his adult film star wrapped up. "When something's not there that should be, I immediately became concerned", the official reportedly said.

Giuliani said he knew news of the payment would come out, even if he didn't know "exactly when or what would come out".

Vice President Mike Pence has released his annual financial disclosure, reporting a pension plan from the state of IN worth between $500,000 and $1 million and credit card debt between $15,000 and $50,000. However, the president's struggling golf courses in Turnberry, Scotland, and Doonbeg, Ireland, improved their earnings, with income at the Turnberry property growing to more than $20 million from $14 million.

A prior disclosure made a year ago covered a 16-month period and showed $37.3 million in revenues for Mar-a-Lago.
