The U.S. Department of Justice has told AT&T that it would be required to sell CNN as a condition of approval for its proposed $85 billion acquisition of Time Warner, according to The Financial Times. The report adds that AT&T is opposed to such a divestiture, and is prepared to take the Trump Administration to court.

Axios has further learned that the DoJ request is to divest Turner Broadcasting, which is CNN's parent company.
