Share

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.

Columbus Nova, the company linked to the oligarch, paid Cohen's shell company $500,000.

Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, Richard Blumenthal of CT, and Ron Wyden of OR sent a letter to AT&T CEO Randall Stephenson asking questions about the $600,000 in payments the company made to Cohen previous year. They also refer to a January 12, 2017 meeting between Stephenson and Quinn and Trump, noting that Cohen entered Trump Tower just eight minutes earlier.

In the end, AT&T says Cohen "did no legal or lobbying work" for the company, though they did pay his limited liability corporation Essential Consultants at least $200,000, and perhaps as much as $600,000. More recently, Daniels' lawyer Michael Avenatti alleged that Cohen was "selling access" to president Trump.

The Journal's report stressed that Cohen was trying to leverage his unique position as a person very close to Trump due to his "precarious" financial situation, a friend of Cohen's told the paper. It hasn't commented on how much was paid to Cohen's firm.

Three Democratic senators are asking AT&T CEO Randall Stephenson for more information about the telecom giant's contract with President Trump's lawyer, Michael Cohen.
