Trump lawyer complained he wasn't reimbursed for Stormy Daniels payment

The bank used by President Trump's lawyer, Michael Cohen, to wire $130,000 to adult film actress Stephanie Clifford, known professionally as Stormy Daniels, has reported the suspicious payment to the Treasury Department.

The report also mentioned that the First Republic Bank, through which Cohen made the payment, flagged it as suspicious and reported it to the Department of Treasury.

The White House and Cohen have vehemently denied reports that Trump and Daniels had a year-long affair that started a few weeks after First Lady Melania gave birth to their son, Barron, in 2006. That revelation relied on background sources described as "people familiar with the matter, " but Cohen, when reached for comment about this and other details, said "Fake News".

Daniels' representatives were threatening to walk away, a source told the paper, and so Cohen said he stopped trying to track down the Republican nominee and paid the bill to keep Daniels quiet himself.

Waters also claimed a "disoriented " president is a unsafe thing for America after The Washington Post reported that the Trump administration's morale is an "all-time low" as the president is outraged by the negative coverage of the White House, including the controversy surrounding senior adviser Jared Kushner. "That makes the $130k payment to Stormy Daniels a felony in violation of federal election law", Democratic Congressman Ted Lieu of California said on Twitter.

'Not that I'm aware of, ' the press secretary responded. It is unclear when First Republic Bank actually flagged the transaction. "And I'd refer you to Michael".

Mr. Cohen had said last month that he had "facilitated" the payment using his own funds, that the deal was a private transaction and that it didn't violate any laws.

That Post report also said Clifford's attorney Keith Davidson was contacted by City National Bank in Beverly Hills, the bank Davidson used to receive Cohen's payment, nearly a full year after the payment. Cohen refused to say if he was reimbursed by the Trump organization or Trump personally.
