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.

"Avenatti's fast and loose style is exactly why a protective order should be granted", attorney Peter Gleason said of the attorney for Stephanie Clifford, who made a name for herself as Stormy Daniels in the adult-entertainment world.

The document is being closely watched by ethics experts to see whether it discloses the $130,000 paid to porn star Stormy Daniels on his behalf by his attorney Michael Cohen.

Felix Ehrat, the top lawyer at Swiss pharmaceutical company Novartis, has made a decision to step down from his role over the drugmaker's $1.2 million payment to President Donald Trump's personal lawyer Michael Cohen for healthcare policy lobbying services.

Trump's filing states that the president was not required to disclose Cohen's expenses, but was doing so in the interest of transparency. In February, Cohen said he was never reimbursed for payment to Daniels.

UTA co-president Jay Sures, who is Scaramucci's agent, made the pitch, as first reported by The New York Times.

Mr Cohen, whose records relating to the settlement were seized in an FBI raid last month, is now reportedly under criminal investigation. The official told the magazine that the SAR contained references to two earlier SARs about Cohen's financial activity - reports the source said were missing from the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network database.

However, Cohen believed that GenBank was a "third-rate" organization and he told Sater that he would work his own contacts to secure a meeting with a more prominent financial institution. Among his holdings, he took in $25 million from his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida. The most recent report - the only one made public so far - examined Cohen's transactions from September of 2017 to January of 2018, and included activity totalling nearly a million dollars. He said he had not been reimbursed by Trump's company or Trump's campaign.

A prior disclosure made a year ago covered a 16-month period and showed $37.3 million in revenues for Mar-a-Lago.

"They're not fully vetted, but there are at least two I think are on solid ground", Avenatti said.

It is now known that Cohen solicited major corporations for high-dollar "consulting" services via Essential Consultants LLC after Trump's 2016 election.

Mr Trump's acknowledgment that he reimbursed Mr Cohen puts the president "at the middle of all of the campaign finance violations", said Paul Ryan, head of litigation at Common Cause.

The disclosure shows millions in 2017 income from rents, licences, book and television royalties, company shares, hotel management fees and golf courses, with interests from India to Dubai. But "it was clear that the deal was not going to happen", said Ruhaimi, who is no longer part of the Qatari government.
