US: AT&T hired Cohen to learn about Trump’s antitrust views?

According to an email obtained by Bloomberg, AT&T hired Michael Cohen, President Trump’s personal lawyer, to get advice on how the administration might handle matters such as antitrust enforcement and a corporate tax overhaul.

Cohen was one of “several consultants” the Dallas-based company hired for insight into Trump, according to the email, sent to US employees on Wednesday, May 9. Their portfolios consisted of “a wide range of policy issues” such as “regulatory reform” at the Federal Communications Commission. The company didn’t dispute the authenticity of the email.

In a statement released Wednesday night, AT&T said that it had been contacted “regarding Michael Cohen” by the office of Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who is investigating Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. The company said it had “cooperated fully, providing all information requested in November and December of 2017.”
