Cohen said  the "business opportunity" mentioned in the text was the "acquisition of the life rights of Stormy Daniels."

During the testimony, Cohen reviewed an email he received from Howard saying he deleted the Radar story 'Donald Trump, Playboy Man', published in 2008 before AMI owned it.

Cohen then informed Trump that he had gotten the controversial story removed.
