The head of the nation's ethics office is questioning why President Donald Trump didn't disclose past year that he owed personal attorney Michael Cohen as much as $250,000 for unspecified "expenses".

President Donald Trump listed a payment of more than $100,000 to his attorney Michael Cohen as a reimbursement to a third party, a revelation made in a 2017 financial disclosure form with the Office of Government Ethics.

A footnote to disclosures submitted Tuesday to the Office of Government Ethics said Cohen had incurred "expenses" on Trump's behalf in 2016 of between $100,001 and $250,000. It says Trump "fully reimbursed Mr. Cohen in 2017".

Daniels is fighting to have a court void the nondisclosure agreement that she says Cohen had her sign to buy her silence about a one-night stand with Trump.

In his letter to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, the OGE acting director said: "You may find the disclosure relevant to any inquiry you may be pursuing".

While many pundits called Giuliani's disclosure a gaffe, Giuliani said at the time that he was working in sync with Trump.

These reports revealed Cohen's lucrative secret financial deals with numerous corporations inked shortly after Trump won the presidency.

"I have never seen something pulled off the system..." Reporter: Do you know where he got the money to make that payment?

The scandal engulfing Cohen has opened a new front in the legal challenges dogging Trump, grabbing headlines from Special Counsel Robert Mueller's ominous investigation into possible collusion between the president's 2016 campaign and Russian Federation.

Al-Rumaihi told the Post that Mr Cohen made the solicitation in early December at the Peninsula Hotel in NY, an account Mr Siegfried confirmed.

After Trump signed the letter, Sater and Cohen planned a trip to Moscow to negotiate directly with Russian representatives.

Trump has denied having an affair with Daniels or knowing anything about that payment but his new lawyer Rudy Giuliani has acknowledged the USA president had in fact reimbursed Cohen for the payoff.

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.

The solicitation would be the latest such exchange offered by Cohen to be made public following acknowledgements by US and European companies last week that they paid Cohen, who was Trump's lawyer for about a decade and self-described "fixer" for Trump. According to records obtained by Yahoo, communication between Stater and Cohen began in the latter part of 2015, when the two began discussing the possibility for a Moscow-based megastructure.
