AT&T Exec Who Made 'Big Mistake' of Paying Michael Cohen $600000 Is Out

Cohen allegedly received $600,000 from AT&T, $1.2 million from Swiss drug maker Novartis, $150,000 from South Korean airline agency Korea Aerospace sectors and $500,000 from Columbus Nova, an investment business linked to a Russian oligarch.
Stephenson announced that Bob Quinn, one of the executives involved in the Cohen deal, "will be retiring".
Quinn started with the Bell system as an operator for Illinois Bell in 1980, before AT&T was broken up by the Justice Department in a landmark antitrust action four years later.
Time Warner was not aware of AT&T's contract with Cohen, according to a person familiar with the company's thinking.
President Trump expressed opposition to the merger with Time Warner during the campaign and his administration ultimately chose to fight it, with the Justice Department filing suit in November to block the agreement.
"Companies often hire consultants for these purposes, especially at the beginning of a new presidential administration, and we have done so in previous administrations, as well", the company said in the email.
Closing arguments were made in the AT&T-Time Warner case last month, and Judge Richard Leon said he will present a decision on June 12.
The payment to Clifford was the first known activity involving Essential Consultants, a shell company incorporated in DE by Cohen.
Wyden, a Democrat from OR, noted in a letter to Narasimhan that at the time Novartis was paying Cohen, it was seeking approval and negotiating a payment deal with the US government for a cancer drug called Kymriah that has a list price of $475,000.

Cohen is also under investigation by prosecutors in NY for possible bank fraud and campaign finance violations.
"To be clear, everything we did was done according to the law and entirely legitimate", Stephenson wrote in the memo.
Cohen "approached our external affairs organization during the post-election transition period and said he was going to leave the Trump Organization and do consulting for a select few companies that wanted his opinion on the new president and his administration - the key players, their priorities, and how they think", according to an AT&T fact sheet. CEO Vas Narasimhan said in a letter to employees on Thursday that the company "made a mistake" in retaining Cohen.
Rudy Giuliani has apparently again contradicted the Trump administration with his public statements.
Essential Consultants was the same company Cohen used in October 2016 to route money to Daniels in exchange for her agreement not to disclose an alleged affair with Trump. That specific revelation further proves the president is not going to be influenced by special interests, Sanders insisted, adding, "This is actually the definition of draining the swamp".
A "scope of work" describing Cohen's contract in an internal AT&T document shows that he was hired to "focus on specific long-term planning initiatives as well as the immediate issue of corporate tax reform and the acquisition of Time Warner".
AT&T has said Cohen approached employees in the company's Washington office shortly after the election.
Weeks before that aboard Air Force One, Mr. Trump told reporters he was unaware of Cohen's payment to Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford.
