President Trump lists Michael Cohen's hush payment to Stormy Daniels in his financial disclosure form

President Trump lists Michael Cohen's hush payment to Stormy Daniels in his financial disclosure form But he should have disclosed it last year as a financial liability, according to the Office of Government Ethics The agency’s director David Apol said that the $130,000 payment meets the requirements for a reportable “loan” This means that Trump could have committed a crime by not disclosing it And Apol has forwarded his findings to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani feels differently about the payment "It's not a loan, but he reported it any way.

It was in fact an expense, like paying a doctor.

If you owe a doctor $2,000 and you pay him back that's not a liability."
