Longtime Donald Trump associate Michael Cohen attempted to foreclose on a loan just before the 2016 election, The Wall Street Journal reported Tuesday.
The foreclosure step sought $3.8 million from Christophe Escoffier, a foreign investor who bought Cohen out of a Manhattan condominium.
Cohen sought the money one day after missing his second deadline to pay adult performer Stormy Daniels $130,000 in hush money to cover-up an extramarital affair she allegedly had with then-candidate Trump.
The timing is merely coincidental, Cohen suggested when replying to a request for comment.
“Your accounting of the facts are inaccurate and morph multiple, unrelated issues into one,” Cohen argued. “Hence, you create a false narrative.”
