Prosecutors Zero In On Cohen For Illegal Lobbying

The Hill reports:

Federal prosecutors are probing whether President Trump’s personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, acted as a secret lobbyist during previous business deals, The Wall Street Journal reported Thursday. People familiar with the investigation told the outlet that prosecutors are reaching out to companies that Cohen worked for as a consultant after the 2016 election.

Some of these high profile companies include AT&T and Swiss drug company Novartis. Cohen entered into contracts with companies during the transition period and bragged about his access to Trump’s inner circle, according to previous reports.
