AT&T Chief Says It Made a 'Big Mistake' Hiring Michael Cohen

AT&T Chief Says It Made a 'Big Mistake' Hiring Michael Cohen

Earlier this month, the company's CEO Vasant Narasimhan reportedly wrote in an email to colleagues that his company "made a mistake" in seeking Cohen's advice.

Though he reportedly made his millions by way of eerily savvy NY real-estate investments, a series of questionable medical companies, and the NY taxi business, Donald Trump's election may have been Michael Cohen's most lucrative venture yet. So, you wanna know how the Trump administration works?

'With the recent change in administration, Novartis believed that Michael Cohen could advise the company as to how the Trump administration might approach certain USA healthcare policy matters, including the Affordable Care Act, ' Novartis said. The documents showed that Cohen was able to land lucrative deals with companies such as Novartis, telecom giant AT&T, Korea Aerospace Industries, and the Russian-tied investment firm Columbus Nova, which the companies subsequently confirmed. The information Avenatti revealed could land Cohen, who is under criminal investigation but has not been charged, in more legal trouble.

Multiple people familiar with Cohen's offers to clients following the election said that 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".

In a letter to Cohen, Wyden stated that "the size and timings of these payments, as well as the accusation that Novartis continued the payments because canceling the contract "might have caused anger" to the President, deserve closer examination".

Democrats in the Senate want AT&T's top brass to answer questions about the large sums of money the company paid President Donald Trump's former personal attorney Michael Cohen.

The company has been in the hot seat since news broke last week that it had made payments to the same shell company, Essential Consultants, that was reportedly used to pay off porn actress Stormy Daniels to keep quiet about an affair she reportedly had with Trump.

They took out at least 16 loans based on the once sky-high value of the medallions, according to Bloomberg.

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".
