Trump Lawyer Michael Cohen's Swampy Dealings Dissected by John Oliver

Trump Lawyer Michael Cohen's Swampy Dealings Dissected by John Oliver

Oliver continued, summarizing the events of yet another newsworthy week in the Trump White House: "They got three American detainees out of North Korea, which was great".

An AT&T spokesman said, "We are aware of the letter and will respond". John McCain's opposition to President Donald Trump's pick for Central Intelligence Agency director by saying Thursday morning that "he's dying anyway", a White House official told CNN.

Trump's new attorney Rudy Giuliani has said that Cohen "certainly never lobbied" Trump.

John Oliver takes a hard look at Micheal Cohen's attempt to cash in on his ties to Donald Trump. AT&T also paid Cohen up to $600,000, a move the company later called a "big mistake". More recently, Daniels' lawyer Michael Avenatti alleged that Cohen was "selling access" to president Trump.

He added that "millions of dollars for access to Trump... is just freakish because I naturally assumed you gained access to the president by finding a golden ticket in your MAGA hat".

Cohen has been under scrutiny in recent weeks, first over a payment made to adult actress Stephanie Clifford, who goes by the stage name Stormy Daniels, and then for a slew of other payments made to him by large corporations, allegedly for his consultancy expertise. I'm the guy you should hire.

In a letter to Cohen, Wyden stated that "the size and timings of these payments, as well as the accusation that Novartis continued the payments because canceling the contract "might have caused anger" to the President, deserve closer examination".

"That is a little bit weird, because lawyers don't generally pitch themselves by offering up info on their other clients", Oliver said. Specifically, they want to know how much AT&T paid Cohen's firm, as well as, which executives were involved in hiring Michael Cohen, and what the decision-making process was like in vetting Cohen's qualifications for the job he was hired to do. "Congratulations, you just got a f*****g masterclass".
