'Sketchy as Hell': AT&T Paid Trump Lawyer Michael Cohen for 'Insights' as FCC Worked to Kill Net Neutrality

Jake Johnson, staff writer

While the news late Wednesday that a shell company set up by President Donald Trump's personal attorney Michael Cohen has raked in millions from a dizzying array of corporations spurred controversy for a variety of reasons, open internet advocates were quick to highlight "

From a tweet:

“Throughout the developing world this is more commonly called ‘bribing.’”

Bribery is specified in the Constitution as one of those “high crimes and misdemeanors” punishable by impeachment—which, it seems, we have forgotten.

So Cohen took out a loan to give to Stormy. Just where did all this money go? I’m so confused (sarc). And trump paid him back in installments. What? I’m so so confused (sarc). Guess I’ll go do some laundry. I’d like fresh sheets on my bed.

What is this “impeachment” of which you speak? I was not aware that there have been any blowjobs in the oval office during Trump’s tenure. Until there is, cease your rantings.

It appears Cohen is a real piece of work. That is my kind of lawyer. Willing to take a loan on his house to payoff the Porn Star and not even ask to be paid back…in installments. That is real dedication to his client.

“Throughout the developing world this is more commonly called ‘bribing.’”

How about “throughout the world” and “across human history” - except for the US where lobbying and injecting money into politicians is legal, and including most likely many of these types of transactions. This word “developing” world is such a colonial expression.

Sad, sad, to explicitly see how this class of people operates in extraordinarily large sums of easy money - compared to 50% of the US households that makes less then 50k/year. Even El Chappo has worked harder for his billions.

Still awaiting the actual charges against Cohen.

In the meantime, let’s have Rudy G. explain it all on Fox News. That’s been awesome.
