Jurors are being shown monthly invoices sent by Michael Cohen in 2017 after the alleged hush money payment to Stormy Daniels.

Jeff McConney, the former controller at the Trump Organization, testified under direct examination that the Trump Organization agreed to repay Cohen $420,000 in exchange for his out-of-pocket $130,000 payment made to Daniels.

Earlier, McConney discussed how and Allen Weisselberg discussed what was owed to Cohen, which included a $50,000 tab to Red Finch tech services, which brought the amount to $180,000.

But that number was doubled to $360,000 to offset taxes, according to McConney, who said Cohen also received a $60,000 bonus in 2017.

Cohen’s invoices, sent to Allen Weisselberg, cam via email, evidence shows.

Cohen was sent monthly installments of $35,000 by the Trump Organization for phony legal expenses for 12 months, McConney’s testimony shows.
