The $100,000 was paid out in 2016 but was not reported in the president's disclosure previous year.
President Donald Trump acknowledged for the first time that he repaid his lawyer Michael Cohen more than $100,000 for expenses Cohen incurred during the 2016 presidential election, according to a financial disclosure form released Wednesday. Past year it took the agency about two days to make Trump's disclosure form public after it was submitted.
This year's document will provide a more robust accounting of Trump's finances, and the state of his businesses, 15 months into his White House tenure.
"Today, the President filed his annual financial disclosure report with OGE and it is now under review", a tweet from the ethics office said.More news: Macy's Inc | $ Stock | Shares Surge On Q1 Earnings Beat & High Guidance
It will also be scrutinized for any sign of the hush money payment made to Daniels.
Trump's attorney Rudy Giuliani disclosed recently that Trump reimbursed Cohen for the payment to Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford.
The form will cover all of 2017 and some of 2018. "Mr. Cohen sought reimbursement of those expenses and Mr. Trump fully reimbursed Cohen in 2017".
"In 2016, expenses were incurred by one of the Donald J. Trump's attorneys, Michael Cohen", reads the form, which was released by the Office of Government Ethics.More news: NAFTA deal unlikely this week, but negotiations continue, Mexico says
"Mr. Cohen, an attorney, received a monthly retainer, not from the campaign and having nothing to do with the campaign, from which he entered into, through reimbursement, a private contract between two parties, known as a non-disclosure agreement, or NDA", Trump wrote on Twitter, reversing an earlier statement that he was unaware of the payment.
Personal gifts disclosed by Trump include golf-related items from two professional golfers: a golf bag and clubs worth $1,150 from Kevin Streelman and $750 clubs from Bryson Dechambeau.
The exact figure specified in the financial disclosure is said to be between $100,000 and $250,000. "The forms will be available through the Office of Government Ethics".More news: Two Sherpa guides scale Nepal's Mount Everest, setting new records
