Michael Avenatti, Daniels' lawyer, released the report Tuesday, detailing $4.43 million in transactions paid to Cohen, many of which Avenatti identifies as suspicious.
The documents claimed Cohen received the money "within approximately 75 days" of the payment he made to the adult actress.

How precisely Avenatti says he knows this isn't yet clear - the supporting materials for his "executive summary" aren't public and may not themselves be public documents, raising questions about whether someone in the Treasury Department or elsewhere in officialdom may have given them to him.
USA Today, reporting on the initial statementNovartis made Tuesday, said Novartis "paid Trump attorney Michael Cohen almost $400,000 from late 2017 to early 2018". Each has important business considerations with the US government.

A Novartis spokesman said any agreements with Essential Consultants took place before the new CEO took over in February and have since expired. Others included about $500,000 from a company linked to Russian oligarch Viktor Vekselberg, almost $400,000 from pharmaceutical giant Novartis and $150,000 from Korea Aerospace Industries. That company is partnered with Lockheed Martin in seeking a multi-billion dollar contract for advanced fighter jet training for the military, a contract that is going to be awarded sometime this year. Like all Russian oligarchs, Vekselberg has close ties to Russian presidentVladimir Putin. Vekselberg funds several critically important prestige projects, including Skolkovo, the business incubator touted as Russia's answer to Silicon Valley.
Vekselberg was one of two oligarchs stopped by Federal Bureau of Investigation agents working for the special counsel when his private plane landed in a New York-area airport earlier this year, according to multiple sources familiar with the matter.
