President Trump’s financial disclosure report was just released, and it shows that he did after all reimburse his personal attorney, Michael Cohen — a reimbursement that he did not disclose on last year's forms. Did Trump break the law by omitting this in the first place? What was he hiding?

Watch: Trump probably broke campaign finance laws
Donald Trump released his financial disclosure report, which showed his debt to Michael Cohen. But that was supposed to be included in last year’s report. With this violation, President Trump has broken the law again.
Norm Eisen, former White House Special Counsel for Ethics and Government Reform and current board chair for Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW), said,
At the same time as OGE Director Dave Apol certified the president’s statement, he signed the president’s statement, he sent a referral, a letter, to Rod Rosenstein at the Department of Justice providing last year’s form with the missing information. So there’s a DOJ referral in the mix now. I think the President may be facing some very serious potential liability for last year’s omission.
From Rudy Giuliani to Michael Cohen, Donald Trump’s legal team has been marked by turnover, infighting, contradictions, and FBI raids. As the President’s legal troubles worsen, so too does the chaos among his lawyers.
