Stormy Daniels' attorney predicts Trump will not finish his term

Stormy Daniels' attorney predicts Trump will not finish his term

Giuliani caused new headaches for Trump last week when he suggested on Sean Hannity's Fox News show that the president had in fact known about a payment made by his lawyer Michael Cohen to the adult actress Stephanie Clifford, known as Stormy Daniels.

After significant investigation, we have discovered that Mr. Trump's atty Mr. Cohen received approximately $500,000 in the mos. after the election from a company controlled by a Russian Oligarc with close ties to Mr. Putin.

"How the fuck did Avenatti find out?" one source asked The Daily Beast when pressed on Cohen's payment from Vekselberg.

Avenatti released a report with preliminary findings about the bank account he says Cohen used to make the payment to Daniels. A representative for Korea Aerospace declined to comment. Another $200,000 came from AT&T, which has confirmed the payments to reporters covering the story, saying it paid for "insights into understanding the new administration".

Such a confidential relationship would not violate federal lobbying laws if Cohen did not seek to influence Trump on the companies' behalf.

AT&T is trying to acquire CNN's parent company, Time Warner. Columbus Nova said in a statement late Tuesday that the firm's work with Cohen was not improper.

The stakes are sky-high for Cohen, who is now under a federal criminal investigation by the United States attorney's office in Manhattan and had his home, hotel room and office raided last month.

The firm is a DE business started by Cohen, and it's been previously identified as the source of the hush payment to Clifford.

"Also included in these suspicious financial transactions are four payments in late 2017 and early 2018 totaling $399,920 made by global pharmaceutical giant Novartis directly to Essential in four separate transactions of $99,980 each (just below $100,000)".

The other companies were Novartis AG, AT&T and Korea Aerospace Industries Ltd.

Trump has continued to deny knowledge of the payment and has said the affair never happened.

Emails to Vekselberg's company in Russian Federation seeking comment were not returned.

Last month, the Trump administration imposed sanctions on Russians, including Mr Vekselberg and his Renova Group, that were meant to punish Russia for actions in Crimea, Ukraine and Syria, and for attempts to subvert Western democracies.

Michael Cohen, one of President Trump's lawyers, leaves federal court in NY on April 26.
