The payment from a company linked to Vicktor Vekselberg after the 2016 presidential election was first disclosed Tuesday by Michael Avenatti, a lawyer for Daniels.

The firm, Columbus Nova, confirmed the payment to Cohen but denied it was tied to Vekselberg. A statement from the company's attorney Richard Owens said the Columbus Nova was "owned and controlled" by Americans.

Two other firms, telecom giant AT&T and pharmaceutical company Novartis also acknowledged payments to Cohen, following Avenatti’s release of a seven-page dossier.

Two other firms, telecom giant AT&T and pharmaceutical company Novartis also acknowledged payments to Cohen, following Avenatti’s release of a seven-page dossier.

The Justice Department is considering a proposed merger between AT&T and Time Warner.

A spokesperson for Mueller's office declined to comment.

On Tuesday that may have become more clear after Avenatti released information outlining a number of accusations, which have not been verified by USA TODAY.

Among the findings was that Cohen took $500,000 from Columbus Nova, a self-described "US investment vehicle" for Vekselberg's Renova Group.

Avenatti said the payments came after the 2016 presidential election.

The company is owned by Andrew Intrater, an American who donated $250,000 to Trump's inaugural fund, according to the Center for Responsive Politics, a nonpartisan organization that tracks political money.

CNN reported one of the questions Vekselberg was asked by federal agents was about hundreds of thousands of dollars his company's U.S. affiliate gave to Cohen.

Columbus Nova confirmed payments to Cohen but said reports that Vekselberg used the company as a "conduit for payments" were false.

I mean it's not like the money grubbing lawyer for the hooker Stormy has an agenda or anything....

Regardless of how we, the public, came to know this, it's obvious that Mueller knew all about it.

This is old news to the investigators and the guilty parties involved.

A reckoning is coming.

If you think the story that Michael Cohen got money from a Russian oligarch looks bad now, just wait until Rudy Giuliani explains it. - bookwormliberal

This smells of mob. The Russian crime families and the American mob operate similarly, and guess who is investigating this....folks who put the mob in jail. I think that Trump is nothing more than a common criminal who has operated either as a money launder for the American mob who he and his old man were clever and appeared clean, but this Russian thing.....it smells of the arrogance of Gotti......teflon Don is no more.

Perhaps he was just practicing so he could be like his hero Wild Bill Clinton and Monica "Cigar" (aka Blue Dress) Lewinski.

If it didn't matter then... it doesn't matter now. Their reputations preceded them. Is anyone surprised?

Remember when Obama's rat lawyer had to hire his own legal team?

Oh, right, Obama never had to hire a lawyer.

Yes I was wrong he did have a lawyer who would have guessed?

Did the FBI ever raid her office, home, backyard shed & hotel room?
Was she known as a ''Fixer"
Any corporations ever say... Hiring Obama's lawyer was a big mistake like AT&T just did about Mikhail Cohen? 

Yep I was wrong. SORRY Basketball

Now that we know Trump and his ilk are guilty of everything they accused Hillary of doing, someone should really find out how many pizza parlors they own.

However, she doesn’t expect her new role to overwhelm her with work.

“He doesn’t have a lot of personal legal issues, which is a good thing, I guess,” she says of Obama. “I hope it stays that way.”

Can you spot the difference here?

That's not the point and you know it, or should. The statement was BHO never hired a lawyer, he did. Case closed unless you want to get into schoolyard BS like someone else. Spin it.......

How Michael Avenatti Got Michael Cohen's Emails - and Why That's a Big Problem for Cohen

By Judd Legum, ThinkProgress

12 May 18



"Over the past few days, Michael Avenatti, the attorney for Stormy Daniels, has been steadily releasing what appear to be private communications between Michael Cohen, Donald Trump’s longtime attorney, and Keith Davidson, who represented Daniels when she inked a $130,000 hush-money agreement that was facilitated through a shell company set up by Cohen.

These emails are evidence of questionable, if not unethical, collusion between Cohen and Davidson, who are ostensibly representing opposing sides of the dispute.

One email, released by Avenatti on Twitter on Thursday, shows that Cohen was communicating with Davidson in the days after the FBI raided his home and office and seized his phones. This email suggests an ongoing collaboration between Davidson and Cohen, even though the two are not known to be involved in any current legal matter..."
