Trump lawyer sought $1m from Qatar in late 2016

Michael Avenatti, Anthony Scaramucci-Led TV Show Being Shopped

That letter was written in response to a complaint from a watchdog organization, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, which said that Trump should have reported the payments to Cohen in last year's disclosures.

Cohen is now faced with a federal investigation into his business dealings and the payment he made to an adult film star who claimed to have an affair with Trump in 2006.

Mr Cohen has acknowledged paying Ms Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford.

Reporter: Mr. President, did you know about the $130,000 payment to Stormy Daniels?

A footnote to disclosures submitted on Tuesday to the Office of Government Ethics said Mr Cohen had incurred "expenses" on Mr Trump's behalf in 2016 of between $100,001 and $250,000.

Giuliani told The New York Times that Trump had paid Cohen about $460,000 or $470,000 in 2017 through a monthly retainer of $35,000, which he said included "incidental expenses".

Citing the federal criminal investigation, Cohen this week told a NY court that he would refuse to testify, citing his right against self-incrimination - under the US Constitution's Fifth Amendment - in a lawsuit filed by Daniels seeking to have the non-disclosure agreement cancelled.

The payment is under investigation by federal prosecutors in NY.

Mr Mueller is investigating possible collusion between Trump's 2016 presidential campaign and Russian Federation, something that Mr Trump has repeatedly denied. Peskov says he saw Cohen's message but never responded to it.

Gleason says he consulted Michael Cohen, the embattled private attorney of President Donald Trump, years earlier about Schneiderman accusers.

The church and earlier police station attacks were likely motivated by the arrest of JAD leaders, authorities said. Most attacks in recent years have been limited to low-level operations against domestic security forces.

Cohen facilitated a $130,000 payment to porn star Stormy Daniels.

Trump: Well, you'll have to ask Michael Cohen.

The New York Times later reported on the payments based on interviews and an internal review of the confidential financial records.

Of course, it should be noted that DOJ policy says that a sitting president can not be indicted with criminal charges, but Shaub also raised the issue of a possible civil issue. The most recent report - the only one made public so far - examined Cohen's transactions from September of 2017 to January of 2018, and included activity totalling nearly a million dollars. The second report that the official was unable to locate, which investigated a three-month period between June and September of 2017, found suspect transfers totalling more than two million dollars. "I said I believe, but don't know for sure, that it's probably after the convention".

The report also showed Trump earned between $230,000 and $1.1 million in capital gains income on stock in iPhone maker Apple, Caterpillar, Microsoft and Pepsico.

Four Children Orphaned After Surabaya and Sidoarjo Bombings
The family fanned out on Sunday with suicide bombs attached to themselves and their children, attacking three churches. Based on their remains, Karnavian said the mother and daughters were all wearing explosives around their waists.

Peter Djinis, an anti-money- laundering expert who held top jobs at FinCEN and its predecessor office, said leaking a SAR would be "very risky and highly inappropriate" because it could erode confidence in the government's privacy safeguards.
