Felix Ehrat, the top lawyer at Swiss pharmaceutical company Novartis, has made a decision to step down from his role over the drugmaker's $1.2 million payment to President Donald Trump's personal lawyer Michael Cohen for healthcare policy lobbying services.
The Office of Government Ethics "has concluded that, based on the information provided as a note to part 8, the payment made to Mr. Cohen is required to be reported as a liability", the agency's acting director David Apol said in a letter to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. "The category of value would be $100,001 to $250,000 and the interest rate would be zero".
Trump's representatives insisted in the document that revealing the payments made to Cohen was not necessary by law, instead saying they were listing them "in the interest of transparency".
"The president was very clear on this, he said on Twitter he paid Michael Cohen a monthly retainer - that's not unusual for celebrities, people of power, businessmen to sign non-disclosures with people who are accusing them of things they haven't done", McEnany said, before quickly trying to change the topic.
