The documents released Wednesday by a USA government ethics body do not specify the reason for the payments to Cohen, who paid $130,000 to adult film actress Stormy Daniels in the run-up to the 2016 election.

Murky dealings: Cohen has said he paid $130,000 out-of-pocket to Daniels to buy her silence ahead of the 2016 presidential election.

Asked if the payments were similar to the $130,000 amount paid to Daniels to stay quiet about her 2006 affair with Trump, Avenatti said "yes".

Telecom giant AT&T made a "big mistake" in paying hundreds of thousands of dollars to President Trump's personal lawyer to seek his help as the company pursued a merger that the administration opposed, the company said Friday.

Mr Trump's filing states that the President was not required to disclose Mr Cohen's expenses, but was doing so in the interest of transparency.

Common Cause, a non-partisan watchdog group in Washington, has already filed a complaint with the US Federal Election Commission, claiming Mr Trump broke the law when his campaign excluded details about the $130,000 payment in legally mandated returns. Sater told Yahoo News he provided the texts to investigators voluntarily and without a subpoena.

Mr Mueller is investigating possible collusion between Trump's 2016 presidential campaign and Russian Federation, something that Mr Trump has repeatedly denied. Avenatti, meanwhile, continues to garner public support for his client in her suit against Trump and Cohen.

Ethics experts say that if that money isn't disclosed, Trump could be in violation of ethics laws for failing to disclose a reportable item, a violation for which others have been prosecuted.

Michael Avenatti and Anthony Scaramucci attend The Hollywood Reporter's Most Powerful People In Media 2018 at The Pool on April 12, 2018 in New York City.

Knowingly and willfully falsifying or omitting required information on the financial disclosure form can result in up to a year in prison.

Later that week, the president said the newly hired Mr Giuliani needed time to "get his facts straight". The most recent report - the only one made public so far - examined Cohen's transactions from September of 2017 to January of 2018, and included activity totalling nearly a million dollars.

A new bombshell investigation by BuzzFeed News has revealed that President Donald Trump signed a letter of intent to begin building a Trump Tower in Moscow in October 2015 - months after he formally announced his presidential campaign.

The two SARs in question reportedly show transactions totaling about $1 million in bank transfers over the span of about seven months, and some $2 million in activity during a three-month period ending in September 2017.

Vice President Mike Pence has released his annual financial disclosure, reporting a pension plan from the state of IN worth between $500,000 and $1 million and credit card debt between $15,000 and $50,000.
