John Oliver takes a hard look at Micheal Cohen’s attempt to cash in on his ties to Donald Trump

John Oliver Last Week Tonight

- The Wall Street Journal reports AT&T paid $600,000 to Cohen previous year.

Were any laws broken by either Cohen or these corporations giving money to 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.

On reports of drug manufacturer Novartis saying they had decided not to continue engaging with Cohen after just one meeting-even though they were in a deal with him worth over a million dollars-Oliver said "they basically paid a million dollars not to talk to Michael Cohen". Did they get inside access or was Cohen acting on his own? Unnamed sources later told CNBC that the amount could be closer to $600,000.

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. So, you wanna know how the Trump administration works? For what? CNN said AT&T divulged Cohen "approached" Quinn's Washington office of AT&T during the post election transition period for insights into the administration.

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.

They point out in their letter that AT&T had a "significant financial interest" in Trump administration decisions when the contract began, including its proposed merger with Time Warner, net neutrality rules, and corporate tax cuts.
