The Wall Street Journal first reported the story Friday (Aug. 24).
According to NBC News, sources close to the investigation say Weisselberg is "Executive 1" on the document prosecutors filed in the Cohen case. Cohen sent an invoice to Executive 1 seeking "Payment for services rendered for the month of January and February, 2017." The money was intended to reimburse Cohen for a payment to Stormy Daniels, according to prosecutors.
Cohen has admitted to paying women who alleged sexual encounters with Donald Trump for their silence during the 2016 presidential campaign. Deemed a "fixer" for Trump, Cohen pleaded guilty Wednesday to violating campaign finance laws.
