Last week, Avenatti tweeted bombshell allegations against Trump attorney Michael Cohen, including that he received $500,000 from a Russian oligarch-tied company for insight into the Trump administration.

Cohen has previously said he paid adult film actress Stormy Daniels $130,000 as part of a settlement and non-disclosure agreement reached just before the election in 2016.

The president's failure to disclose that he repaid Cohen for the pre-election payout to Daniels has now been referred to the Department of Justice.

The disclosure underscored the inconsistency of explanations by Trump and aides about a $130,000 payment made by Cohen to Daniels before the 2016 presidential election to buy her silence over an alleged sexual encounter with Trump in 2006.

And then second, it would've given a false impression that" Trump knew about the reimbursement if it was disclosed "back in 2017. The President reimbursed that over the period of several months.
