I suppose everyone knows now that Trump lies most of the time. Still somewhat satisfying when you find protracted lying that is proven to be false.
The U.S. Office of Government Ethics on Wednesday referred President Donald Trump’s financial disclosures to the Department of Justice after determining that he should have disclosed his reimbursement for a $130,000 payment to keep adult film star Stormy Daniels quiet about their alleged affair.
Yes, remember when Trump recently lied about paying stripper Stormy Daniels with whom he was alledgedly had sex while his wife had recently given birth.? Here's the timeline.
Because Trump broke the law by leaving the payment off his financial disclosure, the acting head of the OGE has flagged it to the attention of deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. CBSNews
A note in the document says "OGE has concluded that the information related to the payment made by Mr. Cohen is required to be reported and that the information provided meets the disclosure requirement for a reportable liability." This means that the ethics office deemed that the payment to Cohen, made in 2016, should have been reported last year.
David Apol, the acting director of the Office of Government Ethics, sent a letter to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein Wednesday, saying that, "based on the information provided as a note ... the payment made by Mr. Cohen is required to be reported as a liability." Apol wrote to Rosenstein and provided him with those financial disclosure reports, "because you may find the disclosure relevant to any inquiry you may be pursuing regarding the president's prior report."
