Novartis’ $1.2m payment to Trump’s lawyer raises more questions than answers

Novartis payment to President Trump’s personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, had seemed fairly odd from the beginning – with many asking the same question, what was the company paying for?

In a statement, it tried to clarify why a payment as large as $1.2 million, up from the $400,000 previously revealed, over the course of the year was made to the lawyer, who has no background in healthcare, and his consultancy firm, Essential Consultants.
