More Senate Dems Call For Cohen Payment Info From AT&T, Novartis

Cohen made a second attempt that was also rebuffed.

AT&T CEO Randall Stephenson said last week that it was a mistake to hire Michael Cohen, former personal attorney for President Donald Trump, as a consultant after it was revealed the company may have paid him $600,000 previous year. Specifically, they want to know how much AT&T paid Cohen's firm, as well as, which executives were involved in hiring Michael Cohen, and what the decision-making process was like in vetting Cohen's qualifications for the job he was hired to do.

Cuban's comment comes days after Michael Avenatti, the lawyer for adult-film actress Stormy Daniels, published documents showing some of Cohen's post-presidential election financial dealings.

On Last Week Tonight, John Oliver discussed a chaotic week at the White House, from chief of staff John Kelly's comments about immigrants to Michael Cohen's mounting legal troubles.

Trump White House Kills Off Yanny-Laurel Debate With 'Ridiculous' Clip
A video featuring US President Donald Trump and White House staff received millions of views when it was posted to Twitter today. The age of your ears will also affect what you hear, the sounds of "Yanny play at a higher frequency than those of "Laurel".

Multiple people familiar with Cohen's offers to clients following the election said he aggressively pitched himself. "It's like a doctor saying: if you hire me, I'll tell you about all of Larry King's birthmarks".

He added that "millions of dollars for access to Trump... is just freaky because I naturally assumed you gained access to the president by finding a golden ticket in your MAGA hat". I'm his personal lawyer. That is same firm he created to pay the $130,000 hush money payment to Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford and has alleged a 2006 affair with Trump. He was occasionally successful: Swiss drugmaker Novartis shelled out a staggering $1.2 million for his esteemed services, while AT&T paid something like $600,000, and lobbying firm Squire Patton Boggs paid $500,000 for the privilege of adding Cohen to their roster.

Earlier this month, Novartis announced that special counsel Robert Mueller, who was appointed a year ago to oversee an ongoing investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election, enquired in November about the company's outflows to Cohen. Now their taxi companies have piled up unpaid taxes and fines, and about half of their medallions have been suspended, Bloomberg reported, citing city records.

In a statement to The Journal, Cohen said: "These falsehoods and gross inaccuracies are only being written in the hopes of maligning me for sensationalistic purposes".
