Donald Trump's personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, received a secret payment of at least $400,000 (£300,000) to fix talks between the Ukrainian president and President Trump, according to sources in Kiev close to those involved.
The payment was arranged by intermediaries acting for Ukraine's leader, Petro Poroshenko, the sources said, though Mr Cohen was not registered as a representative of Ukraine as required by US law.
Mr Cohen denies the allegation.
The meeting at the White House was last June. Shortly after the Ukrainian president returned home, his country's anti-corruption agency stopped its investigation into Trump's former campaign manager, Paul Manafort.

You know what? I don’t believe it. Now why is that?
It’s about time the overthrow of the government in Kiev gets scrutiny. It does seem to be a power grab by Germany, the bankers, the leaders of the EU, and globalists with an agenda that doesn’t help little folk.
Corrupt Ukrainians have part of a number of links in the “colluded with Russia” theme sold by Billary, Inc. and the DNC.
Yeah, I got your sources right here.
The DNC met with the Ukrainian government to get dirt on Trump.
Why didnt our FBI implant helpful spies into the DNC and Hillarys campaign to stop Ukrainian subterfuge of their campaigns?
Why to these freaks try to connect the Ukraine with Russia regarding the 2016 election? IIRC, Ukraine hasn’t been part of Russia since about 1990.
Do they know that?
So Ukrainian puppets of the CIA are reliable sources?
“sources in Kiev”
fake stream media really scraping the bottom of the barrel for fake anonymous sources ...
Ukraine is the new Russia.
THIS IS IT! MUELLER, COMEY BREAK OUT THE FINEST CHAMPAGNE! WE GOT THE ORANGE MOFO NOW!!!
You can't make this up.
Wait. Apparently you can.
Even if true, it’s pretty small potatoes compared to the money given to the Clinton Foundation.
“according to sources in Kiev close to those involved”
In other words, “according to Hillary Clinton.”
