"And I think as the evidence rolls out over the coming months disclosures will be made that my client was not alone as relates to these payments", Avenatti said, referring to his client Stormy Daniels.

Qatar turned down Mr Cohen's offer, made weeks before Mr Trump's inauguration, the Post said, citing several people with knowledge of the situation.

But he said it appears there is paperwork that he expects will show Trump, through his personal attorney Michael Cohen, paid off the women.

Sater, who worked closely with Trump and had an office in the president's NY tower, reached out to Cohen in May 2016 and tried to gauge when Trump could fit the trip to Moscow into his busy campaign schedule. Reporter: Then why did Michael Cohen make those if there was no truth to her allegations?

Texts and emails sent by President Trump's fixer Michael Cohen show that his work on a Trump Tower Moscow deal continued at least through May 2016, well after January 2016 end-date Cohen previously claimed, Yahoo News reported Wednesday evening.

Mr Trump's claim began to unravel early this month, however, after Mr Rudy Giuliani, a new member of the President's legal team, said Mr Trump had reimbursed Mr Cohen for the sum paid to Ms Daniels - and the President himself subsequently acknowledged the repayment.

The suspension deals a cruel blow to a Mariners team that's exceeded expectations so far this year. Because the substance involved was a diuretic, the drug agreement called for Cano to be retested.

The revelation comes in Trump's personal financial disclosure report, which he filed Tuesday with the Office of Government Ethics, and which the OGE officially certified and released to the public Wednesday afternoon.

The Washington Post reported that Mr Cohen wanted the money in exchange for access or insight into the Trump administration.

Daniels is seeking to invalidate a nondisclosure agreement that bars the actress, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, from talking publicly about a sexual encounter she says she had with Trump in 2006 in Lake Tahoe.

The messages about Trump Tower Moscow, which were sent to Russian-born Trump associate Felix Sater, are now in the hands of Robert Mueller, the special counsel investigating possible Russian interference in the 2016 USA presidential election. Last month, his home, office and hotel room were raided by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, with records of the payment to Daniels among the materials seized.

Further, Giuliani has claimed that the payment was not funneled through a shell company, the newly registered DE shell company, Essential Consultants, even though it very clearly was, as evidenced by copies of the wire transfer.

As for the questionable tactics, he says Avenatti attributed certain "fraudulent" wire transfers to the wrong Michael Cohen. Revenue at Trump's Palm Beach resort, Mar-a-Lago, fell to $25 million from $37 million in the previous 16 months, as almost two dozen charities canceled fundraising events at the club in the wake of Trump's controversial remarks about a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, last August.
