President Donald Trump's longtime attorney and fixer gained access to as much as $774,000 from two financial transactions conducted during the 2016 president campaign, The Wall Street Journal reported Friday.


During the winter of 2015/2016, Cohen gained potential access to $529,000 via a new mortgage for a Trump World Tower condominium owned by Cohen's in-laws. Months later, Cohen increased his ability to borrow on a bank credit line by $245,000.

Cohen has said he used his home-equity line of credit to pay $130,000 to adult video star Stormy Daniels.
