Trump lawyer Cohen sought $1 million from Qatar in late 2016

It shows President Trump paid back his former lawyer Michael Cohen between $100 and $250,000 for expenses in 2016

Earlier this month, Rudy Giuliani - the former Mayor of NY who recently joined President Trump's legal team - revealed in a TV interview that Trump reimbursed Mr Cohen for a $130,000 payment used to keep Stormy Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, quiet about an alleged affair in 2006.

"And I think that as the evidence rolls out in the coming months, disclosures are going to be made that my client was not alone as relates to these payments", Avenatti said.

The disclosure did not specify what the reimbursement was for, and gave just a range: $101,000-$250,000. "It appears that these funds may have replenished the account following the payment to Ms. Clifford", read a summary of findings from Avenatti and Associates. Playboy model Karen McDougal has also alleged in a lawsuit that Cohen was involved in a $150,000 agreement she made with a Trump-friendly tabloid publisher to prevent her from telling the story of her alleged 2006 affair with Trump to any other outlet.

Michael Cohen had earlier said he gave up on the project in January 2016 after determining it "was not feasible for a variety of business reasons".

"It's not a loan, but he reported it anyway", Giuliani, the latest addition to Trump's legal team, told the New York Daily News, directly contradicting Apol's findings.

Giuliani, said Wednesday that the Cohen case is of no concern. That money is believed to be the reimbursement for the payment to Daniels. In a letter to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, Apol said the disclosure may be relevant to an investigation into the financial disclosure report Trump filed previous year, which did not disclose the no-interest loan.

However, the US US Office of Government Ethics did not elaborate on the objective or the recipient of the payment. Cohen's attorney Stephen Ryan did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Reuters on the reports.

The letter constitutes a referral by the ethics office of a possible false financial filing. It says Trump "fully reimbursed Mr. Cohen in 2017". According to ethics document, Trump's income was $25 million in 2017 and more than $15 million from the golf club.

It said the payments continued because the contract could not have been terminated.

The disclosure of Trump's payments to his lawyer came the same day a Senate intelligence panel released thousands of pages of testimony from its probe into a meeting between the president's eldest son, Donald Trump Jr, and a Russian lawyer who offered to provide damaging information about Hillary Clinton.

But ethics officials said in a note on his form that they have concluded otherwise.
