AT&T reportedly paid President Trump’s personal attorney, Michael Cohen, $600,000 to advise on pending government issues, including its proposed $85 billion merger with Time Warner, the Washington Post reports.

The details: AT&T reportedly turned to Cohen for assistance three days after President Trump took office. The Justice Department sued the company last November in an effort to block the merger. An AT&T spokesman didn't immediately respond to a request to comment about the deal with Cohen. [Go deeper: Corporate America paid Cohen millions, left with nothing.]
