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.
An AT&T spokesman said, "We are aware of the letter and will respond". They pulled out of the Iran deal, which may turn out to be catastrophic. "The first lady announced her anti-cyberbullying program, appealing to people to be kind, which was a little jarring considering this".
President Donald Trump's former personal attorney tried to sign up ride-sharing titan Uber for access to his powerful client, but the company reportedly turned him down many times.
"That is shocking, but it's also not really surprising", Oliver said.
Oliver continued: "Tonight, let's ignore all of that and instead focus on the busy week for one person in particular, Michael Cohen, Donald Trump's personal lawyer and a lawyer so shitty he made Trump say, 'I need someone good, get me Rudy Giuliani'".
In Trump's Washington swamp, the shit just keeps getting deeper.
But ultimately, Oliver argued, Columbus Nova, AT&T, Novartis, and the other companies that shelled out millions to Cohen got exactly what they paid for.
Meanwhile, Daniels lawyer Michael Avenatti outed Cohen on Twitter last night.
"Millions of dollars for access to Trump", Oliver said, "which is just weird because I naturally assumed you gained access to the president by finding a golden ticket in your Maga hat".
It was confirmed that Cohen receiving hundreds of thousands of dollars from corporations as a consultant in the aftermath of Trump's election.
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. I'm the guy you should hire.
AT&Ttold The New York Times that it was hoping to better understand the president's thinking, but Oliver called that "just ridiculous". 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".
