The documents do not say which company Cohen paid or what specific services it provided to the Trump campaign. Cohen sought reimbursement for the payment from the Trump Organization in January 2017, according to the court documents.

Cohen pleaded guilty Tuesday to charges of bank fraud, tax fraud and campaign finance law violations related to Trump's 2016 campaign. He implicated Trump in the campaign finance violations, saying the New York real estate mogul directed him to make hush-money payments to women who said they had affairs with Trump.

Trump on Wednesday attacked Cohen, accusing him of making up stories to “get a deal" and falsely claiming that the charges he pleaded to are not actually crimes.
