Donald Trump's lawyer 'paid $400000 to arrange meeting with president of Ukraine'

Ukraine Denies Paying Trump Lawyer for White House Meeting A Chabad house in Long Island becomes fulcrum in Mueller probe

Trump and Poroshenko met in the White House last June, with the Ukrainian anti-corruption agency halting an investigation into Trump's former campaign manager Paul Manafort soon afterwards, reports BBC News.

Just as it has been clear that former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort was a target for flipping against Trump, Cohen's fate seems to revolve around whether he might be pressured into taking a deal, like Freidman was.

A high-ranking Ukrainian intelligence officer told the BBC that, before Poroshenko's White House visit, Cohen was brought in because the country's lobbyists couldn't secure a substantive Oval Office meeting with Trump.

'Poroshenko's inner circle were shocked by how dirty this whole arrangement [with Cohen] was, ' the source said, according to the British news site. The BBC report stressed that there was no indication that Trump was aware of the transaction.

President Donald Trump's personal attorney, Michael Cohen, walks down the sidewalk in New York, April 11, 2018.

His business partner, New York City's "Taxi King", is CONSPIRING to SPY on him for DEEP STATE, if we are guessing how Donald Trump will characterize it, or IS AGREEING to COOPERATE with LAW ENFORCEMENT, if we are saying what is actual fact. U.S. District Judge Kimba Wood has appointed a retired judge who is reviewing the material and aiding the parties in resolving which communications are protected by attorney-client privilege and which can be seen by the government.

He said he had asked police to allow him to go into the school during the standoff so his son could kill him instead of students. Aguilera says she's ready for classes to resume next week so that she can join with friends again "to show how strong we are".

Avenatti obtained an SAR detailing the corporations' payments.

But that same Port Washington channel may have been used before in an effort by affiliates of Russian President Vladimir Putin to end sanctions against Moscow over its invasion of Ukraine, according to reports in The New York Times.

In a statement to Reuters, Mr Poroshenko's office also said the story was false. This is how we assess the misinformation that the meeting of the presidents of Ukraine and the United States was allegedly organized for money.

The press service noted that the Ukrainian-U.S. summit in June 2017 was organized exclusively through official diplomatic channels, including the Ukrainian Embassy in the United States.

A spokeswoman for the NY state attorney general did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Reuters. Trump did not specify the reason for the payment. During Ramadan, to help his Muslim drivers "feel great" when breaking fast, Freidman says he provided them with "Subway sandwiches with vegetable [s], tuna, cheese, and chips".

"Payments can be proved pretty easily, so it would be silly to deny it if it happened", Giuliani said.
