An attorney for porn star Stormy Daniels said on Tuesday that President Donald Trump's lawyer, Michael Cohen, was paid $500,000 by a company with ties to a Russian oligarch who was hit last month with U.S. sanctions to punish Moscow for activities that included suspected meddling in the 2016 U.S. election.In a tweet and a report, Daniels' attorney, Michael Avenatti, said a U.S.-based company controlled by Viktor Vekselberg, a businessman with ties to Russian President Vladimir Putin, sent Cohen the payment.It was not immediately clear how Avenatti would know of any payments made to Cohen. Avenatti also detailed payments he said were made to Cohen by U.S. telecommunications company AT&T, Swiss drugmaker Novartis AG and Korea Aerospace Industries Ltd .Avenatti also said he discovered four payments of just under $100,000 each by Novartis to Essential Consultants, the same company used by Cohen to make payments to Daniels.
