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."
