The Ethics Office officially notified Rosenstein that DT's 2017 financial disclosure

failed to include required information about DT's debt to Cohen. The former head of the Ethics Office, Walter Schaub, says this letter is tantamount to a criminal referral.

NEW: Ethics office sending letter to Rod Rosenstein stating that Michael Cohen's payment on behalf of Trump was a debt and may be relevant to "any inquiry" Rosenstein may be pursuing.

"OGE has concluded that the information related to the payment made by Mr. Cohen is required to be reported and that the information provided meets the disclosure requirement for a reportable liability," the agency wrote.

That means the agency believes Trump should have disclosed the payment in last year's filing.

OGE Director David Apol sent a letter to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein after making the disclosure public, saying that "you may find the disclosure relevant to any inquiry you may be pursuing regarding the President's prior report that was signed on June 14, 2017."

"This is tantamount to a criminal referral," tweeted Walter Shaub, the former director of the OGE under Trump who has since become one of his chief critics. "OGE has effectively reported the president to DOJ for potentially committing a crime."

8. Schaub is on CNN right now.

He said that the payments was a debt and it has to be reported. That is the law. Also, an attorney speaks has to his client about personal matters so the moron must have known about it.

11. Sounds more nefarious than a blow job between two consenting adults.

Someone needs to tell Trump that this country isnít Russia, he isnít Putin, laws matter here and his fat ass is going to jail.

12. Their power to ignore, deflect and transfer is quite impressive.

In the way that, say, a cholera epidemic is impressive.
