AT&T on Friday ousted its top lobbyistas well as the No. 2 wireless company's chief executive said that it was a "major mistake" to seek the services of Michael Cohen, President donaldtrump's particular legal professional, for advice about working together with the Trump administration.
"Our company has been in the headlines for all the wrong reasons.and our reputation has been damaged", the memo said.
Sen. Ron Wyden asked Novartis's chief executive officer to explain what the Swiss drugmaker was hoping to achieve with its $1.2 million in payments to Michael Cohen, the personal lawyer of President Donald Trump. He called the hiring of Cohen a "big mistake".
Mueller's team learned of Cohen's January 2017 offer and has asked Ford for information and records about it and has interviewed Ford's head of government affairs Ziad Ojakli, the person said. Giuliani warned that it could be a "perjury trap" and suggested that "lies told by others" could land the president in legal trouble, though he said that Trump himself would not close the door entirely on an interview.
"I'm crushing it", Cohen told an associate in 2017, according to the WashingtonPost, in regard to his pitches to potential clients.
At the time it was making the payments, Wyden said, the company was negotiating with FDA over the approval.
Initially, it was believed AT&T paid Cohen $200,000.
Quinn took charge of AT&T's legislative affairs operation in Washington less than two years ago.

Cohen is also under investigation by prosecutors in NY for possible bank fraud and campaign finance violations. A lawyer for Mr. Cohen declined to comment Friday.
Those rules, for instance, require that lobbyists register as such only if they've spent at least 20 per cent of their time with a client over a three-month period doing lobbying work. "It's a whole industry here in Washington built around providing deep information on how the government is likely to address complex issues", said Karl Sandstrom, a senior counsel at law firm Perkins Coie LLP and a former commissioner at the Federal Election Commission. "Nobody's going to pay you $600,000 to tell you something you could have read in your paper this morning", Mr. Sandstrom said.
Since Cohen is not a registered lobbyist and, additionally, didn't disclose the payments previously, he could be in violation of the Lobbying Disclosure Act for payments from domestic sources or the Foreign Agents Registration Act for foreign sources of such money, experts said.
"I don't know [if AT&T] had to register him, based on what I've learned and what has come out in media reports".
Critical Consultants paid £130,000 into Daniels, whose name is Stephanie Clifford, days prior to the 2016 presidential elections as part of the nondisclosure agreement that banned her by discussing an alleged sexual encounter with Trump.
