Michael Avenatti, the lawyer for porn star Stormy Daniels claimed that Trump's lawyer Michael Cohen has received $500,000 from a Ukrainian-born Russian businessman Viktor Felixovich Vekselberg post-Trump's 2016 election victory.

On Tuesday he posted a series of tweets where he mentioned that a company controlled by Viktor Vekselberg, which has close ties to Russian President Vladimir Putin has paid Cohen.

Stormy's lawyer claimed that Vekselberg and his cousin Andrew Intrater, who is the Managing Director of Nova Technology Partners transferred funds to Trump's lawyer Cohen through eight transactions between Jan-August 2017.
