Novartis top lawyer quits over Cohen payments

Another employee "retires" due to Cohen payments:

The top lawyer at Swiss pharmaceutical company Novartis stepped down on Wednesday following revelations that the company made payments to President Donald Trump's personal attorney Michael Cohen.

Novartis (NVS) said its general counsel, Felix Ehrat, had decided to retire from his position in the "context of discussions" surrounding the payments to Cohen.


Cohen 'asked Qatari investor for millions of dollars'...said he would pass to Trump family members


This is wild:

Donald Trump's lawyer, Michael Cohen, is facing claims he asked a Middle Eastern official for millions of dollars to give to 'Trump family members' in a meeting at Trump Tower weeks after the president's election victory, DailyMail.com can reveal.

Cohen is alleged to have asked Ahmed Al-Rumaihi, a former diplomat in charge of a $100bn Qatari investment fund, to send 'millions' through him to Trump family members, an offer the Qatari said he refused.


The official said: 'He said Cohen told him to send millions to various members of the Trump family.' Al-Rumaihi did not do so, the official added. The Trump family members were not named.

WashPo reporter Carol Leonnig is an idiot

Carol Leonnig is on Chris Hayes at the moment talking about her WashPo story today. It's a good story. She is often involved in good, well-sourced stories.

But for some reason she often says things that are certifiably insane, always in favor of Trump.

Today she tells us that Trump has "soured on" being interviewed by Mueller and that only last month he wanted to do it.

How stupid do you have to be to think Trump ever wanted to be interviewed?
