The documents released on Wednesday by a USA government ethics body do not specify the reason for the payments to lawyer Michael Cohen, who paid US$130,000 to adult film actress Stormy Daniels in the run-up to the 2016 election.
Cohen, Trump's longtime attorney and personal fixer, had his Manhattan office, home and hotel room raided by FBI agents last month as part of a criminal investigation launched by federal prosecutors in NY.
Trump said that he repaid a $130,000 payment that Cohen made to Clifford just days before the presidential election in 2016 and suggested that the payment by Cohen to the actress could not be considered a campaign contribution.
Daniels' attorney argues that the contract was invalid because Trump never signed it, and alleges that Cohen falsely accused her of lying.
Cohen is under investigation, in part over a $130,000 payment to Daniels in exchange for her silence about an alleged sexual encounter with Trump a decade ago.
