Wow. According to Rachel a few moments ago, AT&T has confirmed having paid $200,000 to Essential Industries, the shell company that Michael Cohen used to pay Stormy Daniels.

Apparently, AT&T paid the $200,000 in four installments of $50,000 each. As Rachel noted, this is suspect since AT&T is currently seeking smooth sailing for a merger with Time Warner.

From CNBC:

Telecommunications giant AT&T said Tuesday night that it had paid President Donald Trump‘s lawyer Michael Cohen for “insights” about the Trump administration.

AT&T’s admission came after a lawyer for porn star Stormy Daniels claimed the company, drug giant Novartis and a Russian oligarch had all made payments to Cohen’s shell company.

Daniels’ lawyer, Michael Avenatti, said AT&T had made four separate payments of $50,000 apiece to Cohen’s company, for a total of $200,000 in late 2017 and into early 2018.

That company, Essential Consultants, was created by Cohen in October 2016 and soon after was used to make a $130,000 hush-money payment to Daniels.…

“Insights” LoL It sure looks like bribery! Why else would it be paid to Trump’s fixer’s covert shell company?

AT&T has been run by ultra-rightwingers for a long time, and I will never forgive their fierce opposition to the Affordable Health Care Act. Let’s hope this at least scuttles their merger bid, if not leads to the toppling of Trump.
