Reporter: Then why did Michael Cohen make those if there was no truth to her allegations?
"Avenatti's fast and loose style is exactly why a protective order should be granted", attorney Peter Gleason said of the attorney for Stephanie Clifford, who made a name for herself as Stormy Daniels in the adult-entertainment world.
The solicitation would be the latest such exchange offered by Cohen to be made public following acknowledgements by USA and European companies last week that they paid Cohen, who was Trump's lawyer for about a decade and self-described "fixer" for Trump.
Two allegedly missing financial reports show roughly $3 million worth of previously undisclosed financial transactions linked to Michael Cohen, the longtime attorney to President Donald Trump who is now the subject of a federal criminal investigation over his business dealings.
David Apol, the acting director of the ethics office, said in a letter to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein that the original payment made by Cohen should have been disclosed in ethics documents that Trump filed in June 2017. Trump has previously denied knowing about that payment or reimbursing Cohen.
Cohen is under investigation by the FBI, which raided his home and office last month and seized documents that included information about the payment to Daniels.
Mr Mueller is investigating possible collusion between Trump's 2016 presidential campaign and Russian Federation, something that Mr Trump has repeatedly denied. Broidy has said that Cohen and another lawyer, Keith Davidson, worked out a deal in which Broidy would pay $1.6 million to a former Playboy model he had impregnated.

In Connecticut, the state's two major utilities reported 90,000 without electricity, most in the western part of the state. New York's Central Hudson Gas and Electric reported 78mph wind gusts on Tuesday and about 1,000 lighting strikes per hour.
Rudy Giuliani, one of Trump's current lawyers, told Fox News Channel that the repayment did not have "to be disclosed at all because I think it was an expenditure that he reimbursed".
During this time, it seems that Cohen was antsy about what he would tell Trump if the future president asked him about progress on the project.
Knowingly and willfully falsifying or omitting required information on the financial disclosure form can result in up to a year in prison. "Mr. Trump fully reimbursed Mr. Cohen", the disclosure report said.
Vice President Mike Pence in his discloser form said that he had more than United States dollars 100,000 in student loans for his children and USD 15,000 as credit-debit debt.
The two SARs in question reportedly show transactions totaling about $1 million in bank transfers over the span of about seven months, and some $2 million in activity during a three-month period ending in September 2017.
The disclosure also shows President Trump's current net worth at $3.1 billion.
The letter constitutes a referral by the ethics office of a possible false financial filing.
