$50K Cohen Payment Made to Mysterious Tech Company

$50K Cohen Payment Made to Mysterious Tech Company

President Donald Trump's former lawyer, Michael Cohen, made a mysterious $50,000 payment to an unidentified tech company "in connection with" the Trump campaign in 2016, court documents show.

Mention of the previously unreported payment was buried in documents released Tuesday as part of Cohen's guilty plea on eight felony counts, according to CNBC.

The documents do not identify the tech company — or what the company did for him.

According to CNBC, Cohen presented Trump executives with bank records for several of the expenses he incurred on Trump's behalf. But for his $50,000 payment to a tech company, Cohen provided no paperwork, just a handwritten sum at the top of one of the other bank documents.

The Trump Organization would later say the $50,000 was a "payment for tech services," CNBC reported. Prosecutors say the $50,000 "was in fact related to work Cohen had solicited from a technology company during and in connection with the campaign," CNBC reported.

Cohen pleaded guilty Tuesday to charges of bank fraud, tax fraud and campaign finance law violations related to Trump's 2016 campaign — and implicated Trump by saying he directed Cohen to make hush-money payments to women who said they had affairs with Trump.
