San Francisco — An Internal Revenue Service analyst charged with leaking bank account information of President Trump’s former attorney Michael Cohen pleaded not guilty Wednesday in federal court in the Northern District of California.

John Fry, a 54-year-old IRS analyst, allegedly accessed a Treasury Department database last May and then disclosed information about Cohen’s transactions to Michael Avenatti, a California-based attorney, and later to a New Yorker magazine reporter.

The article goes on to state the following:

Avenatti at the time represented adult film star Stormy Daniels, one of two women who said Mr. Trump paid them to keep silent before the 2016 presidential election about past sexual relationships. Fry allegedly disclosed to Avenatti details of an October 2016 transfer of $130,000 to a bank account controlled by Cohen, who has said he paid that sum to Daniels.
