Trump Financial Disclosure Reveals Stormy Daniels Payment

HeadlineMay 17, 2018

In a financial disclosure report revealed Wednesday, President Trump acknowledged he made a six-figure payment to his attorney Michael Cohen as a reimbursement for a hush-money payment Cohen made to adult film star Stephanie Clifford—also known as Stormy Daniels. The disclosure came as part of a complaint against Trump filed by the government’s ethics office. Trump’s disclosure directly contradicts a sworn statement he filed a year ago; many legal observers say it appears Trump violated federal elections law by failing to disclose a loan to his campaign.
