"Bemused" Uber repeatedly turned down Trump's fixer, Michael Cohen

Although AT&T's statements were meant to distance itself from Mr. Cohen and the arrangement on Friday, they also provided insight into how companies like AT&T operate in Washington during the Trump era. 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.

"This company involves Cohen, who is absolutely not "essential", he's also not a "consultant", plus there's only one of him so even the "s" in the company name is a big dumb lie", Oliver said.

Mr. Cohen repeatedly pitched Uber, which said no, citing Mr. Cohen's ownership of NY taxi medallions as a potential conflict of interest with the ride-hailing firm, a person close to the company said. They pulled out of the Iran deal, which may turn out to be catastrophic.

Wyden has directed Novartis to turn over several documents by 5 June, including the details of any payments made by the company to Cohen or Essential Consultants, as well as emails and all other communications between Novartis and Cohen, his firm, or related entities.

Mr. Trump pledged during his campaign to shake up the Washington establishment - to "drain the swamp" - while railing against "the special interests, the lobbyists and the corrupt corporate media that have rigged the system against everyday Americans".

Meanwhile, Daniels lawyer Michael Avenatti outed Cohen on Twitter last night. "Cohen's pitch to potential clients was pretty brazen", the host added, reading it aloud: "I don't know who's been representing you, but you should fire them all". I'm closest to the president. With his former boss installed in the White House, Trump's personal lawyer and fixer began pitching himself to major companies as an invaluable political consultant-"I have the best relationship with the president on the outside, and you need to hire me", he reportedly told prospective clients. The senators said the payments "raise obvious questions about corruption and whether AT&T, Essential Consultants and the Trump administration were engaged in a pay-for-play operation". "Congratulations, you just got a fucking master class".
