Ukraine 'paid Trump lawyer to arrange White House talks'

Cohen denied on Twitter Wednesday that he was partners with Freidman "in this business or any other".

Mr Trump met with Mr Poroshenko at the White House on June 20, 2017, in what was officially called a "drop-by" visit after the Ukrainian leader's separate talks with Vice-President Mike Pence. One source told the news agency the payment was $600,000.

Kendall Coffey, a former U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Florida, said the terms of the deal appear to signify a substantial level of cooperation.

Reuters notes that the administration of the President of Ukraine has denied an article of the air force and named the common message on the subject "outrageous lies, slander and fake".

Stormy Daniels' attorney, Michael Avenatti, who has obtained some of Cohen's financial records, told the BBC that reports filed by Cohen's bank to the Treasury Department said Cohen had received money from "Ukrainian interests".

The investigation into Mr Cohen arose in part from special counsel Robert Mueller's inquiry into possible collusion between the Trump 2016 presidential campaign and Russian Federation, something that Mr Trump has repeatedly denied.

The BBC's report comes on the heels of disclosures two weeks ago that Cohen had received previously unknown payments from drugmaker Novartis, AT&T, defense contractor Korea Aerospace Industries, and a US financial management firm linked to Russian oligarch Viktor Vekselberg. This is how we assess the misinformation that the meeting of the presidents of Ukraine and the United States was allegedly organized for money. "Ukraine-US summit in June 2017 had been arranged exclusively by means of official diplomatic channels, in particular Ukraine's Embassy in the US".

There has been no comment from the White House on the BBC report. So yeah, he knows a lot about Michael Cohen. "And he never registered as a foreign agent".

Giuliani said he wanted to "wait for all the facts" to come out in the matter, and that he wasn't going to "get angry" at Cohen over any "hypothetical" situation. "I've already publicly said that this is destroying my life". "The Ukrainian side were angry, the official went on, because Cohen had taken "hundreds of thousands" of dollars from them for something it seemed he could not deliver", the report states.

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. Manafort resigned a few days later.

In return, Poroshenko gave Trump "a gift", the BBC reports; stifling the investigation into Manafort.
